Node based materials and textures


(Loganh96) #1

Hey guys!

I was wondering if there’s any thoughts for having a node based material editor in the 3D settings (similar to UE4 and other similar editors). That way you could parametrically adjust the materials in the 3D settings.

Maybe like a built in option in the browser to choose between the current version and a node based one. I found an open source on that works pretty similar to UE4’s: https://victhorlopez.github.io/editor/

I’d love to see something like this, espiecially for special effects :smile:
It’s probably a big question of performance and would require re-writing lots of rendering code. I’m still a big fan of the idea though .

We would love to do this one day, but it would be a pretty complex undertaking.

Thanks for the feedback! We’ll be sure to follow up with news or to ask for more input if we decide to start working on it in the future.
