Product Information

  • Required Products: None

The Nature Shader included with Nature's Variance allows you to do a number of things for adding realistic differences between surfaces. A four color mixer allows you to add random variations in color between objects or within a single object, letting you make things like multicolored flowers easily.

Similar random variations coming from opacity allow you to turn parts of objects invisible, letting you do things like trees missing portions of their leaves dynamically. Together these two features give you the ability take your outdoor scenery from Spring through Summer, onto Fall then Winter and much more.

Blend your leaves from green to yellow, orange and red before mixing in opacity to make your trees bare. It's not a shader restricted to nature however, the color variation can also be of great use with things like candies or clothing!

Also included are a set of nature props taking advantage of the Nature Shader. You'll find four trees and two bushes with color variance on their leaves, along with four different flower patches using it on their petals. Another four scattered leaf props with four single leaf props to help complete your scene when using opacity variance for dramatic Fall renders!
