What does each shader do?
« on: August 20, 2017, 06:06:56 PM »
Is there a list anywhere of what the different shaders do? I've looked, but I've not found one. Meshmixer team, could this info be put into the manual? At the least, would it be a lot of trouble to show the name of each shader, so we don't have to refer to them by their descriptions?

In this paper I explained the shader library: > last chapter.
It's somehow outdated but still matches quite good. Meanwhile a second "World" shader was added. This differs to the old texture shader as it shows the texture without being shaded that harsch.
