Product Information

  • Required Products: None

The Mephistopolis Noir shaders are the most dynamic, easy-to-use cel- and comic-style shaders, which emulate classic comic art with ease and help you to break out your own style. No more settling for the same 3D renderings style 3D model look: not-quite-wax and not-quite-photo. Mephistopolis Noir takes your style down an entirely new highway. Built from the ground up for DAZ Studio 4 and DAZ Studio 3, these shaders explode with vibrant colors across your screen like the pages of a classic comic book.

Most all of the features of the basic, universal shader have been integrated into the Mephistopolis core, so applying the shaders to any existing surface is just one click away*. With real, raytraced reflection and refraction channels and independently adjustable parameters for each, your details will glow like never before. In Mephistopolis, you get accurate opacity without interference, crisp toon outlines (or none at all, if you desire), fast 3D rendering times for most materials, texture tiling and rotation built in and a wide range of user-tunable parameters to customize your comics and cartoons.

* This feature is limited by platform to DAZ Studio 4.5 and above.
