What is PLX?

PLX transforms texture coordinates to resemble mesh displacement. It accurately renders depth, perspective, and occlusion from any camera angle. PLX also includes tools that enhance the PLX experience.


How is PLX better than other parallax shaders?

Most other parallax shaders have compromises or issues like bending, repeated calculations, blobbiness, extreme dither noise, and oversmoothing. PLX uses many techniques to solve all of these issues, including a new subsampling method suited for Blender's shader limitations. This allows PLX to look nearly perfect with very few layers, and flawless with more layers. PLX also calculates normals matching the depth of the parallax effect.


Why should anyone buy PLX? 

PLX is streamlined to be more efficient in every way. Using PLX reduces rendering time caused by high poly meshes. Additionally, for each purchase, a percentage will be donated to the Blender Foundation. The rest of the profits will support me in creating new innovative shaders, improving PLX, and learning more skills.
