Alchemy Addon For Blender

WELCOME ALCHEMISTS!

Alchemy is an addon for Blender. Save and load materials right from Blender’s material tab. In addition to powerful management features, Alchemy brings new material types to Blender “Particle Materials” and “Alchemy Effect Materials”.

MATERIAL PAINTING

Paint or blend with any two Blender Render or Cycles materials at the press of a button. “Material Painting” in Alchemy means painting with the actual properties of each material. So when you paint a glass material onto metal it makes the areas where the glass is painted actually look like glass.

PARTICLE PAINTING

Paint with particle materials like grass, weeds, rain and Alchemy Effect materials like Fog, Fire, Smoke and Raise AE. No setup, just joy. Once finished, you’re presented with immediately renderable results.

Alchemy not only comes with special particle and effect materials but it easily allows you to create, edit and save your own particle and effect materials to your own custom libraries which can be exported and shared.

TRUE DISPLACEMENT AND ADAPTIVE SUBDIVISION

“Raise AE” (Alchemy Effect) materials automatically adjust settings and generate required assets to activate Blender’s new “True Displacement” and “Adaptive Subdivision” features for Cycles when used or painted with.

You can create your own Raise AE materials (the same as any Alchemy Effect material type) by including the name of the effect at the end of your custom material’s name. For instance “My Material Raise AE”.

ALCHEMY + ZERO BRUSH

Alchemy unlocks a new feature “Alchemy Paint” in Zero Brush, which lets you instantly plaster on graphics or paint more detail on to existing complex materials. Paint layers like diffuse, bump, specular, alpha and more directly onto non mapped procedurally generated (or any type) BR or Cycles materials with zero setup.
