More Maya shaders

Here is my first Maya software render shader JS Multi Layers.
(A port of my Mentalray shader with the same name.)

JSMultiLayers is a Maya software render material shader that works like photoshop layers.
Assign JSMultiLayers as the objects material and connect other materials and textures to the different layers to build your layered material.
It has 10 layers with opacity and 19 different blend modes.
You can also control each layers alpha channel with 4 alpha modes.

Bah, Windows only :\

Oh well, thank you anyway for your generous contributions (and thank you especially for releasing Linux versions! )

Added JS Normal Mapper.
(A Maya software renderer version of my MR shader with the same name.)
JS Normal Mapper is a tangent space normal map shader that works like the "famous" headus setup. Initial tests shows it renders in about a third of the time the headus setup does.
Versions for Maya 6.0, 6.5 and 7.0.

sweet networks Jan! (as always!)

And the light parted the darkness of the sky, and Jan's multilayer shaders descended from the heavens... Angels were singing...

This is pretty much how I feel about it. Many thanks

I was wondering...has anyone with Turtle or Renderman for Maya tried them? Do they work?
Isnt Turtle and RMfM able to use Maya shaders?

Just curious.

Thank you!

It would be really great if you could get around to do linux versions. And thanks für providing said versions for most of the other shaders on your site!

Take care

I dont have Linux so I would need help compiling them.

Is it possible to use both the software and mental ray versions of JS Multi Layers at the same time? I'm not saying in the same shading network, but installed at the same time and applied to different objects in the same scene?

I will check if it works with RFM
