Easy Liquid - Custom Liquid Shader and Presets for Iray

Easy Liquid - Custom Liquid Shader and Presets for Iray

Setting up realistic and nice looking liquids like natural water in Iray is sometimes not that easy. This product includes a custom liquid shader for the Iray render engine that enables you to set up different liquids like water, drinks, oil and much more easily.

Perfect for all kind of liquids and lots of usage possibilities, like water, splashes, pool, bathroom, nature, fantasy, drinks and everywhere where you need liquid. There are only the necessary controls included to quickly set up liquids.

Choose the liquid color, the refraction index, the refraction weight (mirroring effect) and some more settings for more complex setups, like the aberration for amazing prismatic effects. Bump- and Normal Map channels are included as well to set up water "structures" using the included bump/normal maps or your own and third party maps. Tiling can be adjusted freely as you need it.

For basic liquids like water you only need to set up the color and the refraction weight and maybe a structure map (choose from 6 included ones).

It is also possible to add maps to the color channels for even more effects. The basic options for tiling, offset and cutout, bump map, normal map and thin walled etc. are included as well.

6 presets for complete water settings and 6 structure presets (to get the effect that the water is in motion) are part of the product. Included are also 22 presets for different liquids, like water, juice, alcoholic drinks etc. and 6 presets for refraction weight (mirroring effect) and 10 basic color presets. All settings are not limited to the presets and can be adjusted freely in the shader controls of course.

This custom liquid shader is made to set up liquids that are (at least a little) translucent. You can use it for instance to set up all kinds of water, alcoholic drinks (wines, beer, rum, cognac, liquor etc.), blood, a lot of soft drinks (cola, apple juice, soda etc.), oil, gasoline, chemical liquids in all colors and any other translucent or slightly turbid liquid in any color and with any refraction index.
It is not suitable for liquids that are totally opaque, like milk or hot chocolate for instance.
