Heaven was a DirectX 11 benchmark where you could explore a mythical village floating in the cloudy sky. The buildings and structures in the village were highly detailed and realistic thanks the use of dynamic tessellation, compute shaders, and shader model 5.0.
We've included a fully functional marmoset toolbag scene with the skin and material shaders all setup and working using the supplied 8k JPG texture maps. If you don't have marmoset you can download a free trial from their website here
This wikiHow teaches you how to download, install, and activate shaders in Minecraft PE. You can easily download shaders in Minecraft on an Android using a free add-on manager called Addons for Minecraft. If you're using a PC, iPhone, or iPad, you can browse for and download shader packs in the .mcpack format, which you can then install and activate in Minecraft. Installing shaders is pretty simple most of the time, but if you're using an iPhone or iPad, you'll want to use a third-party app called Documents to avoid potential installation errors.

No. Although you are free to use the scenes and models in your personal work, you are not entitled to use them in your commercial work. However, you can of course learn from the scenes and implement your findings into your professional work!
We're in the middle of tutorial and by now you should be able to build your own furniture models with proper UV mapping. In this part I'll try explaining how to make your work even more alive by creating realistic looking shaders. Of course I won't be able to cover every aspect of this wide topic but I'll try explaining some of the cool tricks and techniques I use personally in everyday work.
First of all, let's make a short clarification about the words we'll be using. What I understand as "material" is an existing, specific kind of surface that can be distinguished by it's color or reflectivity. This refers to real life objects and properties in general. "Shader" is CG version of real life material. It can have similar properties and can be freely adjusted by user. "Texture" or "texture map" is a bitmap file that we'll be using for creating our shader color, adjusting its reflectivity or bumping its surface.I'll try showing you how to re-create most common material types such as glossy surfaces, glass or common metals. What I also find necessary is explaining the philosophy of shader building process in Cycles since It's a bit different than in other rendering engines on the market. With this knowledge I really hope you'd be able to do your own experiments and create realistic looking shaders.
I think reflectivity is the most important factor if you wan your shaders and models look nice and realistic. As mentioned earlier, in real life each material is reflecting the environment in more or less noticeable way. Different materials vary according to their "diffuse" color or texture and they can also have different reflectivity. In CG world this attribute is controlled in various ways and I'll explain it more closely in practical examples later on.
In the example above, reflections are dependent to the surface curvature. Building your shaders this way gives much more convincing and realistic results. What you can also observe is not only the reflectivity change depending on the surface / viewing angle (best visible on the left and middle models). It is also the general reflectivity of the shader being changed. Still there are more reflections visible on the edges, however on the right example the center part of geometry gets more reflective as well. It is also worth mentioning that reflections can have different colors. For most non metallic surfaces the color will always vary from white to dark grey. Metals such as gold or brass will have tinted reflections in the middle section, becoming purely white on the edges and low angles. In the examples below, shader is 100% reflective even if the color tint makes it look a bit like diffuse + reflectivity mix.
Bump and Displacement factors are used for adding physical imperfections to your shaders like cracks, scratches, tile fugues, joints. Sometimes it is necessary and easier to add details like this by simply modeling them or sculpting onto the surface. However, properly created displacement textures can also make miracles.
Besides bump and displacement, we can also use "normal maps" however I'm not a big fan of these for several reasons. First of all, the final effect is only slightly better to regular bump and still very far from using displacement. Second, to create normal maps we either need to generate them in external software or use some additional plugins which takes time (and I'm quite a lazy person). Third, normal maps look totally different to reflection, roughness or bump textures which you'll be using regularly for building your shaders. All of these use only black and white values which can be mixed together for achieving different results - normal map uses colors which eliminates it from any other use than generating surface bump. Last but not least - normal maps aren't so easily adaptable to different rendering engines, giving different results depending on used gamma settings for example. This makes work even more troublesome if you'd like to quickly adapt and test your 3D models or scenes in other applications. However, if you're looking forward to creating detailed real-time animations or game engine models, you'll have to know how to properly handle normal maps.
The big drawback of DrDesten's Shaders is also one of its greatest selling points: no shadows. Not bothering with all the real-time rendering of shadows leaves this shader pack looking a little less eye-catching than many others, but it also frees up a lot of frames, making DrDesten's Shaders a great choice for mid-to-low-end PC setups. So if you're looking for a shader pack that offers a lighter touch, focused mainly on the skybox and water effects rather than lighting and shadows, then give DrDesten's a try.

Chocapic13 Shaders Mod (1.19.3, 1.18.2) is a mod that dramatically improves the graphics of Minecraft. As its name suggests, its main function is to add dynamic shadows (shaders in English), a pleasing effect of wind on the leaves, real sunshine and better water modeled before. Shaders have several different versions, all more or less resource-intensive. 2b1af7f3a8
