View Full Version : layered shader/sampler info

08 August 2007, 01:18 AM
hi people!

i'd like to create a shader which is able to blend between several materials depending on the current y-value on the surface. since i saw a guy building something similar in a tutorial using layered textures i tried to create one using a layered shader. so i assigned two materials and connected the pointWorldY value of a sampler info utility (scaled by a set range util) with the transparencyR, -G and -B values of the upper layer. like i was afraid this only manipulates the color of the layer, doesn't work...

how can i blend the whole materials including highlights, bump and all that things? which input attributes do i have to use? or is there a whole different and better way to solve this task?

thanks for help!
