Update 1.6. Download it here: https://ssoftadd.github.io/download/Sycles_1.6.xsiaddon
1. Some bugfixes
2. Compiled with the latest version of the Cycles render (from 06.05.2018). This leads to the following changes:
2.1. Add new shader node Principled Volume
2.2. Now displacement has a vector format. It means that for bump or displace we should connect scalar value of the displace not to Displacement port of the material's root node, but to Displacement node and it vector output to the Bump Map port of the material. Examples and some descriptions are on the tutorials 5 and 6 on the manual (https://ssoftadd.github.io/manuals/Sycl ... %20Eng.pdf
Also there are some new addons related to Sycles. The fist one is GESImporter. Download it here: https://ssoftadd.github.io/gesPage.html
This addon not only for Softimage, but also for Blender. Initially, the idea was to create a tool for transferring scenes from Softimage to Blender with all render parameters and materials. For Cycles, of course. For example, for rendering scenes and animations on free render-farm for Blender. Current version of the addon can export scene only in opposite direction - from Blender to Softimage. Actually it exports only static geometry, camera, light sources and, of course, materials. With this tool, you can easily take a shader or material from Blender (there are a lot of them both paid and free), and send it to Softimage. And then used it for rendering in Softimage.
Two other addons are libraries of materials, which was converted from Blender to Softimage by the previous tool.
The first library is from Blendermada site (http://blendermada.com/
). Download it here: https://ssoftadd.github.io/blendermadaPage.html
The second library contains shaders and materials from different locations and packs. Download it here: https://ssoftadd.github.io/shadersPage.html
