I purchased Shade 14 pro last week. In short, I think it is amazing. Almost every feature I would have wanted back in the days of 7 and 8 (and from other software I use now) has made it in there - very happy.
However, there are a few things from the features list on the mirye site I can't seem to find in the manual (or I'm misreading it), here
. One of them is Alpha Blending
, in the Surface Features.
Does anyone know what this is?
In Shade 7 Pro there was also a feature for mixing surfaces in Callisto (called a compo joint if I'm remembering correctly). Basically it enabled the use of falloff maps to mix surfaces together, useful for effects like x-ray, fresnel etc. Like this
I know I could do this in shade before, but I see no way of doing it now.
I'm sure I will have more questions, but overall I'm impressed at the progress made with this app, even since version 10 which is the last time I played with it.
