Will you add shadows?

No, I won't. Shadows are performance intensive and will decrease the performace of my shader significantly.


Parts of the shader are glitchy / there are errors in chat

My shader does not support Intel Macs at all.

M1 Macs will break some features, and that is something I can't fix. You can try disabling the features that cause problems.


If none of these things apply to you: please create an issue describing your problem or join the shaderLABS discord server ("Contact Me" section) and describe your problem there.

These things apply to you, but you still want to use my shader? I am unable to properly debug these issues, so I won't be able to fix them (intentionally). If you are fine going without the features that break, disable them. If you can't disable them, contact me and I can probably add an option for that.


Performace is bad

Select the "Low" Profile in the options.

Try to disable these features: PBR, Godrays, DoF
