The Layer shader is used to mix up to eight shaders together. It returns a linear interpolation of Layer1 and Layer2 according to the alpha attribute. An alpha value of 0 outputs Layer1, a value of 1 outputs Layer2, and a value of 0.5 mixes evenly between Layer1 and Layer2. Each layer has a flag to activate/deactivate the given layer. The shader expects surface shaders as its input and also blends the opacity. Layers are applied in order.

Enable/disable the layer entirely.

Name (1-8)

Layer name.

Input (1-8)

The input value for Layer.

Mix (1-8)
