    Whith some serious immagination i can see it actually being as advertised.

      Sorry about that! As stated in the FAQs, this shader does not work with low-polygon count meshes, so this is why the shader might not have worked as excepted for you.

    Unfortunately this addon is not very intuitive and quite limited.
