Nice. Thanks Niran. Is there a way to edit the shaders in the shaders folder? I've tried to modify them but really didn't notice a difference even relaunching the viewer. I'm guessing the shaders are compiled into the viewer? Or I did something wrong. I don't know. I think it would be neat to edit shaders ourselves on-the-fly (to some extent) so we could even share them with the community.

Shaders can be altered by anyone at any time and just need to be reloaded (toggle the specific graphic option off and on again), you need to alter the correct shaders (level 1 shaders for windlight and deferred without shadows and level 2 for with shadows). Breaking some shaders may crash the Viewer has it has no fallback shaders or rendering (BD does not have the legacy rendering working anymore, so crashing all fallback shaders will explode the Viewer)


@Tobias - Thank you


Fun! I played with both this & the light blow out line drawing tech for a video I put together today & I like the initial results enough to keep messing with it in future https://flic.kr/p/QFbqJu
