Blender Market: Prism – Fast & realistic glass shader for Cycles


Eric Edelo has released Prism, an alternative glass shader for Cycles that offers easy to use caustics effects. The sample images are quite convincing!

That is the reason why I created Prism, to remove these limitations and even discard their existence, to provide easy-to-use controls and full control of these features. As an artist myself, I want focus on the creative process rather than try to battle noise, artifacts and poor results.

That’s what Prism is for, to remove all the bothersome and tricky parts of the glass shader and only expose the fun parts, while providing a shader that just works, no fuss! Prism is the beefiest update to Cycles glass shader you can find!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Hello! Can you please help me out ?
    I'm really interesting in purchasing this ad-don, bet I cant seem to find it anywhere, since it's been pulled out on Is it available somewhere in any shape or form?
    Have a nice day!
