TESTIMONIALS

"RenderMan Studio ships with a great library of physically plausible shaders, however for an extreme close-up in our Nissan Juke commercial, we needed a very specific look for metallic car paint. The paint had to look completely photorealistic, and we found that we required more artistic controls, including adjusting color layers, shaping metallic flakes, and pattern placement. We used LollipopShaders’ Carpaint shader to achieve these desired looks out-of-the-box and are very happy with the final result..."
--Armando Ricalde, Cluster Studio

"We knew early on that we would need some further customized shading solutions not only to distinguish ourselves from the other shows and our competitors, but also to take advantage of procedural techniques for our environments to make them more visually rich and complex without having to manually paint and manage many different texture maps for each asset. The LollipopShaders team already had a lot of experience with these procedural techniques, so it was great to collaborate with Christos and his team on our production. With our ideas and feedback..."
--Richard Purcell, DHXMedia / Jim Henson Doozers Project

"We were looking for a high-end shader that would work with the new RenderMan Studio suite and we found it and more with the LollipopShaders Team. We had some roadblocks that I encountered at first like the initial setup in RenderMan Studio, but the LollipopShader team helped me work through them and knocked it out of the park. In particular I was having trouble dialing the metal sparkles in the carpaint for such a hi-res render, but we ended up working through it; also they walked me through some basic steps in converting my HDR's to work with Image Based Lighting..."
