Over the past 2 months DIFFUSION has undergone a total face-lift and we’ve really been working hard, not only to provide a more realistic shader pack, but also to make it the best shader pack in every regard. Here are some of the newest key features:
This might sound like a generic topic, but we’ve really gone under the hood of Diffusion and made it run a lot smoother and faster, optimising not only the shaders themselves but also the assets and overall performance.
This is a massive one… In order to make the shaders more accessible and easier to use, we’ve rebuilt 97/130 shaders to make them VRay DR shaders, which means these shaders aren’t going to be converted on-the-fly but they’re purposefully built with the correct VRay shaders to ensure they render out perfectly over DR.
Over the coming updates, more and more of the shaders will be converted until the entire pack is DR compatible.
New content browser:
Our new content browser is beautifully laid out with previews of each shader. Once you start working with the shader, and if you have the advanced VRay preview scenes, you’ll see every shader more accurately than ever before.
To help you correctly install the assets, we’ve packaged Diffusion into custom installers for Mac and PC. This is a significant upgrade to the pack, especially for future updates.
We’ve added 20 brand new shaders to the pack, which range from the humble bamboo, to the extravagant Polished Marble. A range of awesome new metal shaders including Metal Armor and Grunge Metal and some new creative shaders like Creepy Flesh, Organic Web and Sci-fi Metal to name a few.
These new shaders are invaluable to the pack and will definitely make their way into your renders soon.
