Default Layered Shader

I have been playing with the layered shader, but I have no idea what it might be used for. What would one use a Layered shader for?

Thanks
Kori

It's used so that parts of your model can have one shader, while other parts can have a different shader. (e.g. if you have a single mesh model of a human, you can use a layered shader to map the skin and clothing not merely with different colors, but with different speculars, reflections, and even have the skin use a Lambert while the clothing uses a Phong.

Your book Mike?

Wow nice. I will buy it of course because I really like the way you teach and guide us. I would also like to give you all the love and support in the world, but I guess my money is better :-) Will order it asap, but

Amazon says
Availability: This item has not yet been released. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives.


If you know any release dates it would be greatly appreciated. But perhaps this is the call of Maya Press? Anyways, hope it becomes a smash hit super seller. You earned it.

Oops I just realized I accidently and brutally hi-jacked your thread diamondx. Layered shaders is the topic. I apologize.
