Shaders

Cloth Shader

Surface

Color

Surface "Color" controls the color of the cloth.

Roughness

Surface "Roughness" controls the roughness of the cloth.

Shine

Surface "Shine" controls the reflectiveness of the cloth.

Thickness

Surface "Thickness" is the thickness of the cloth.

Fabric Texture

Texture

Fabric Texture "Texture" is the input for cloth/fabric pattern textures.

See-Through

Fabric Texture "See-Through" controls the transparency based on the cloth/fabric pattern textures.

Bump Strength

Fabric Texture "Bump Strength" controls the bump strength of the cloth/fabric pattern textures.

Fluid Shader

Surface

Color

Surface "Color" controls the color of reflections on the fluid surface.

Roughness

Surface "Roughness" controls the roughness of reflections on the fluid surface.

Substance

Color

Substance "Color" controls the main color of the fluid.

Roughness

Substance "Roughness" controls the roughness of the fluid.

Absorption Color

Substance "Absorption Color" controls the color to which the fluid will be absorbed.

Absorption Strength

Substance "Absorption Strength" controls the severity of the absorption. (0.000 means no absorption)

Thickness Color

Substance "Thickness Color" controls the color of the fluid when thick.

Thickness

Substance "Thickness" controls the thickness of the fluid.

Dispersion

Substance "Dispersion" controls dispersion or separation of color in the refraction in the fluid.


Glass Shader

Surface

Color

Surface "Color" controls the color of reflections on the glass surface.

Roughness

Surface "Roughness" controls the roughness of reflections on the glass surface.

Index

Surface "Index" controls the index of refraction of the reflections on the glass surface.

Refraction

Color

Absorption Strength

Refraction "Absorption Strength" controls the severity of the absorption. (0.000 is no absorption)

IOR

Refraction "IOR" controls the index of refraction of the refraction in the glass.

Caustics (I'm still not happy with the glass caustics, so this might update/change in the future)

Enable Caustics

Pretty straight forward, 1.000 enables caustics and 0.000 disables caustics.

Artifacts

Caustics "Artifacts" adds noise and artifact to the caustics to mimic glass imperfections. (subtle effect)
