ShaderMonger© is a Pipeline tool from Brillstudio directed at small and large studios, as well as individual/freelance shading artists.

Easy to use, intuitive and flexible, with Shadermonger you can easily catalog shaders into different groups, back them up to your main library, create customized thumbnails and more. No need to worry about textures and paths, ShaderMonger© will do this for you automatically. We support most shading engines, including MentalRay, Vray etc.screenCaptures

We’ve added a Download & Install feature to the Online gallery tab, which means you’ll always have access to basic and new Shaders shared by the community if you need them.

Give a try, its (still) Free.

“I decided to deploy it to my actual workplace and see what my co-workers thought. So far they love it and we have started to use it on a few upcoming productions to keep our shaders in a more tightly kept package. I would just like to say thanks for the great utility/plugin, for free, and we will soon be uploading a ton of shaders once production overtime winds down. Thanks again…” (Matt Pearson, Pixelfarm)
