View Full Version : Need for custom shaders???

12 December 2011, 03:27 AM
Hello friends,
This is Kanishk here,
I recently started working in the animation and vfx industry as a modeling texturing artist...
I am very much interested in making shaders...
the thing is i don't know what are custom shaders???
why are they written??
I would be very happy if someone can explain me the need of a custom shader with an example...

Also, am looking forward to buy some books on mental ray as am interested in learning it indepth,,(learning the math behind the process) etc...
I would be really thankful if u can suggest me some good books to buy for mental ray and writing custom shaders....

PS. I already browsed through forums regarding these questions...but found all old stuff(around 5-6 years old) :(
