EEVEE NPR - Blender 2.8 Code Quest


Pablo Vazquez writes:

Yes! EEVEE makes its debut in the NPR (Non-Photorealistic Rendering) world with a new node coded by Kanzaki Wataru that lets you split a shader into color for easy tweaking. You can even mix a PBR (Physically Based Rendering) workflow with NPR!

  1. Yesss this was my main concern with cutting blender internal. NPR was easy because a material node's output is color data you can throw a color ramp on. Cycles didn't offer anything like that.

    • The slice shader and the smooth difuse nodes were rejected. They will be replaced with an addon not written yet. Only the Shader to RGB survided to EEVEE.
