Additional Details

  • Product Notes:
    • Thanks for your purchase. I hope you enjoy these Super Shaders!
  • You should generally apply the texture first, then adjust the scaling, apply a color, and then tweak it with the option presets.
  • If you intend to copy a surface and paste it somewhere else, it needs to be using the DAZ default shader to work properly. You can apply any of the textures to the surface you will be copying to in order to make it work properly.
  • Sphere and cylinder primitives use an unusual UV map that needs twice (2x) as many horizontal repeats as it does vertical repeats if you want to maintain the square aspect ratio of the original textures.
  • If the displacement is causing poke through with clothing, just use the preset to switch to bump mapping.
  • A final thought is about using the maps in other channels. The bump/displacement map can be used in the ambient, diffuse, or specular channels to create unique and interesting effects. Experiment and you may find these Super Shaders even more fun to use.
