The similarities to RefShader baffle me, too, to be honest...

yeah indeed Mallard..
No need for me... I love the ref shader from BlackStar.

Peace,
Rich_Art.

Competition is a good thing. It spurs innovation and forces products differentiation. Hence users get more choice and balance of price vs. features. Everybody wins.

Cool plugin, bought it.
There is a bug. IRR is no longer updates once you click layers under Smart Parameters. If you go back to the root of the channel (color, diffusion etc.) the shader resides in IRR updates again.

Hey Paul, Thanks a lot for the Video. I really love the Shaderlist. Only the possibility of showing the broken texture links is worth the Price. I didn't even know that feature when I purchased it.

I know I will use this Plugin a lot. So I want to mention some things that came to my mind while using the Linkshader Plugin.
The Linkshaderlist has a lot of potential in my opinion. So here are my requests:

1. It would be cool to have materials filtered in the Linkshaderlist. So instead of highlighting the search results I would like to see only those searchresults in the list.
2. An option to delete all Missing Texturelinks completely
3. A treeview where you have all linked shaders below the Mastershader in the Linkshaderlist.
4. an option to show a bitmap in finder.
5. a Renaming option for shaders and materials would also be nice to have.
6. the icons on the left could be bigger in my opinion. Maybe even customizable.


One more question. How do I convert all Linkshaders so I can hand out the File to someone who doesnt have the Plugin? As I understood this is possible, right?

I really hope you develope this further. But I dont want to sound discontent. This Plugin is awesome as it is already.
greetings Holger

yes, that was planned.

2. An option to delete all Missing Texturelinks completely

already done , in my version.

3. A treeview where you have all linked shaders below the Mastershader in the Linkshaderlist.

hmm...not sure about that one.

4. an option to show a bitmap in finder.
can do.
5. a Renaming option for shaders and materials would also be nice to have.

done. you can now change names directly in the smart list.

6. the icons on the left could be bigger in my opinion. Maybe even customizable.

sure , but then it starts to overlap and i dont want the lines to be thicker as this pushes everything down.so thinking about that.

7.One more question. How do I convert all Linkshaders so I can hand out the File to someone who doesnt have the Plugin? As I understood this is possible, right?

you can convert a single in your version, and all in mine(1.2). so next update you just RMB on the material head in the list and you gt a popup command to bake.

Sounds all Perfect. Well done...Thank you for making these great Plugins.

ps. Regarding the Treeview I was wrong with my logic. Forget it.
