Combine diffuse color into outline

Postby kenyonxu » Wed Jan 03, 2018 3:53 am

Hi

In our project we are currently using ASE to make toon shader, however to achieve better result, we hope to use diffuse color as one of the source color of the outline, similar to the pic I have attached. Would ASE support this function in the future? Also the outline function right now does not support alpha, hopefully it will be supported too.

Another question I have is that if I want to make bump effect, what can I use other than the [Parallax Offset] node?

Best Regards
Kenyon

Hello, thank you for getting in touch!

We've recently added the custom outline feature, to which we provide an official sample in AmplifyShaderEditor > Examples > Official > CustomOutlineToon, that shows how to use the diffuse color as one of the sources for the outline.

Regarding outline alpha, while it's not currently supported, I'll register your feedback so that we can investigate what would be necessary to support it. Even though I can't provide any time estimates, we'll get back in touch as soon as we have a solution.

Are you looking for anything specific other than standard Normal Maps?

Looking forward to your reply!

Hey there!

We've just released a new ASE build, v1.4.2.003 – 11th January 2018, in which the Outline node now supports transparency and mask operations through the new Alpha Mode option, feel free to download it through our webpage.

Looking forward to your feedback!
