Classic shader - export tangent normals

Recommended Posts

Following this tutorial at 15:22 he ask to edit the export_tangent_normals1 of the Mantra Surface Shader.

Understood this shader was substituted/renamed with the Classic Shader in v16.

Problem is I didn't find any node of the shader with these properties, any hint if I'm using the wrong shader or need to search anywhere else.

you may find them by typing in the Textport >

opunhide (you'll see the list of contexts) 

we need Shop

type >

opunhide Shop

you'll get all the hidden nodes' list

we need this > ophide Shop mantrasurface

type >

opunhide Shop mantrasurface 

after this node should become available in the Shaders

or

in the Textport >

-> cd /shop

/shop -> opadd mantrasurface

this will add node to the shop

or

write in the Python Shell >

>>> node = hou.node('/shop').createNode("mantrasurface")

and hit Enter

Thansk a lot pal!

Another way I found while browsing the forums is to go to the mat context and TAB > Classic Shader, which from my understanding is a more recent version of the Mantra Surface.
