|MMX Resource Saver Shaders Collection for Genesis 9 and Iray
MMX Resource Saver Shaders Collection 6 for Genesis 9 and Iray is designed for use with Genesis 9, FiberMesh hair, and card-based hairs. Like the other sets of the same name before it, this set aims to help you reduce the amount of vram you are using when rendering in Iray.
The Genesis 9 presets are divided in to 3 groups. The first group are the material optimizers, which allow you to do non-destructive editing of figures' surfaces. Using these, you can disable and enable each of the 13 sections on the PBR skin shader instead of removing the maps outright. This allows you to easily hide multiple maps at a time. There are 79 presets total between the skin, mouth, and eyes with an additional eye optimizer preset. These presets are all hierarchical material presets. All skin presets will work with or without the anatomical geografts attached.
The second group of Genesis 9 presets are the material replacers. These are primarily designed for your background or middle-ground characters but could also be used for non-realistic character renders as well. There is a Replace All preset and 5 sets of additional presets. The skin presets should only be used after the replace all preset. The eyes, mouth, lips, and nipples presets can be used with or without using the replace all preset first. There are 62 skin tone colors with 8 undertone colors. Between them, they will cover all human skin tones and many fantasy skin tones. All skin presets will work with or without the anatomical geografts attached. There are lips and nipples masks, masculine and feminine, in both 1K and 4K versions. The nipple and lips colors all match and can be used on any character. They have 13 natural colors with 57 makeup colors. They do not apply automatically with the skin tones. Lip and nipple colors also have additional strength presets. For the eyes, there are 2 different eye types with left and right presets for each. The first eye type has 10 colors and the second has 12 colors. The 5 mouth presets vary in teeth brightness. The skin, eyes, and mouth presets are all hierarchical material presets. Lips, nipples, and nail presets are all material presets.
The third group of Genesis 9 presets are the fingernail and toenail polish. These can be used with any character. There are 29 colors total with presets to turn the polish off.
The hair presets use the Blended Dual Lobe Hair Shader. All hair presets have been optimized for use on card-based hair and FiberMesh hair. These are all standard shader presets. Please be sure to use the Hair Apply First preset before using any of the other hair presets. There are 395 full color presets, plus the same colors for root and tip-only presets. Additional hair presets include root and tip color blending and color bias, plus hair highlight and hair shine presets. The highlight setting are shared by the root and tip colors. When you apply the root and tip colors, the one you apply last will override the highlight setting. For best results, adjust the colors and color blending to your liking first before adjusting the highlight.
Please note, because the dual lobe hair shader was made for strand-based hair and not card-based hair, the hair presets may not work as expected on some hair models. Strand-based hair always has the hair root at the bottom of the image map, whereas most card-based hair has the root at the top of the image map. As a result, the hair presets for root and tip are named according to what they should do on most hair models and not what is labeled on the hair shader. But since not all hair models are made the same, you will see the odd one where the colors will be upside down or side-to-side instead.
