Property Descriptions

Default

Color( 1, 1, 1, 1 )

Setter

set_albedo(value)

Getter

get_albedo()

The material's base color.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture to multiply by albedo_color. Used for basic texturing of objects.


Setter

set_anisotropy(value)

Getter

get_anisotropy()

The strength of the anisotropy effect.


  • bool anisotropy_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, anisotropy is enabled. Changes the shape of the specular blob and aligns it to tangent space. Mesh tangents are needed for this to work. If the mesh does not contain tangents the anisotropy effect will appear broken.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture that offsets the tangent map for anisotropy calculations.


Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, ambient occlusion is enabled. Ambient occlusion darkens areas based on the ao_texture.


Setter

set_ao_light_affect(value)

Getter

get_ao_light_affect()

Amount that ambient occlusion affects lighting from lights. If 0, ambient occlusion only affects ambient light. If 1, ambient occlusion affects lights just as much as it affects ambient light. This can be used to impact the strength of the ambient occlusion effect, but typically looks unrealistic.


Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, use UV2 coordinates to look up from the ao_texture.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture that defines the amount of ambient occlusion for a given point on the object.


Setter

set_ao_texture_channel(value)

Getter

get_ao_texture_channel()

Specifies the channel of the ao_texture in which the ambient occlusion information is stored. This is useful when you store the information for multiple effects in a single texture. For example if you stored metallic in the red channel, roughness in the blue, and ambient occlusion in the green you could reduce the number of textures you use.


Setter

set_clearcoat(value)

Getter

get_clearcoat()

Sets the strength of the clearcoat effect. Setting to 0 looks the same as disabling the clearcoat effect.


  • bool clearcoat_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, clearcoat rendering is enabled. Adds a secondary transparent pass to the lighting calculation resulting in an added specular blob. This makes materials appear as if they have a clear layer on them that can be either glossy or rough.

Note: Clearcoat rendering is not visible if the material has flags_unshaded set to true.


Setter

set_clearcoat_gloss(value)

Getter

get_clearcoat_gloss()

Sets the roughness of the clearcoat pass. A higher value results in a smoother clearcoat while a lower value results in a rougher clearcoat.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture that defines the strength of the clearcoat effect and the glossiness of the clearcoat. Strength is specified in the red channel while glossiness is specified in the green channel.


  • bool depth_deep_parallax

Setter

set_depth_deep_parallax(value)

Getter

is_depth_deep_parallax_enabled()

If true, the shader will read depth texture at multiple points along the view ray to determine occlusion and parrallax. This can be very performance demanding, but results in more realistic looking depth mapping.


  • bool depth_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, depth mapping is enabled (also called "parallax mapping" or "height mapping"). See also normal_enabled.

Note: Depth mapping is not supported if triplanar mapping is used on the same material. The value of depth_enabled will be ignored if uv1_triplanar is enabled.


  • bool depth_flip_binormal

Setter

set_depth_deep_parallax_flip_binormal(value)

Getter

get_depth_deep_parallax_flip_binormal()

If true, direction of the binormal is flipped before using in the depth effect. This may be necessary if you have encoded your binormals in a way that is conflicting with the depth effect.


  • bool depth_flip_tangent

Setter

set_depth_deep_parallax_flip_tangent(value)

Getter

get_depth_deep_parallax_flip_tangent()

If true, direction of the tangent is flipped before using in the depth effect. This may be necessary if you have encoded your tangents in a way that is conflicting with the depth effect.


  • int depth_max_layers

Setter

set_depth_deep_parallax_max_layers(value)

Getter

get_depth_deep_parallax_max_layers()

Number of layers to use when using depth_deep_parallax and the view direction is perpendicular to the surface of the object. A higher number will be more performance demanding while a lower number may not look as crisp.


  • int depth_min_layers

Setter

set_depth_deep_parallax_min_layers(value)

Getter

get_depth_deep_parallax_min_layers()

Number of layers to use when using depth_deep_parallax and the view direction is parallel to the surface of the object. A higher number will be more performance demanding while a lower number may not look as crisp.


Setter

set_depth_scale(value)

Getter

get_depth_scale()

Scales the depth offset effect. A higher number will create a larger depth.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to determine depth at a given pixel. Depth is always stored in the red channel.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture that specifies the color of the detail overlay.


Setter

set_detail_blend_mode(value)

Getter

get_detail_blend_mode()

Specifies how the detail_albedo should blend with the current ALBEDO. See BlendMode for options.


  • bool detail_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, enables the detail overlay. Detail is a second texture that gets mixed over the surface of the object based on detail_mask. This can be used to add variation to objects, or to blend between two different albedo/normal textures.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to specify how the detail textures get blended with the base textures.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture that specifies the per-pixel normal of the detail overlay.

Note: Godot expects the normal map to use X+, Y-, and Z+ coordinates. See this page for a comparison of normal map coordinates expected by popular engines.


Setter

set_detail_uv(value)

Getter

get_detail_uv()

Specifies whether to use UV or UV2 for the detail layer. See DetailUV for options.


  • float distance_fade_max_distance

Setter

set_distance_fade_max_distance(value)

Getter

get_distance_fade_max_distance()

Distance at which the object appears fully opaque.

Note: If distance_fade_max_distance is less than distance_fade_min_distance, the behavior will be reversed. The object will start to fade away at distance_fade_max_distance and will fully disappear once it reaches distance_fade_min_distance.


  • float distance_fade_min_distance

Setter

set_distance_fade_min_distance(value)

Getter

get_distance_fade_min_distance()

Distance at which the object starts to become visible. If the object is less than this distance away, it will be invisible.

Note: If distance_fade_min_distance is greater than distance_fade_max_distance, the behavior will be reversed. The object will start to fade away at distance_fade_max_distance and will fully disappear once it reaches distance_fade_min_distance.


Default

0

Setter

set_distance_fade(value)

Getter

get_distance_fade()

Specifies which type of fade to use. Can be any of the DistanceFadeModes.

get_emission()

The emitted light's color. See emission_enabled.


  • bool emission_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

Setter

set_emission_energy(value)

Getter

get_emission_energy()

The emitted light's strength. See emission_enabled.


  • bool emission_on_uv2

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

Use UV2 to read from the emission_texture.


Setter

set_emission_operator(value)

Getter

get_emission_operator()

Sets how emission interacts with emission_texture. Can either add or multiply. See EmissionOperator for options.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture that specifies how much surface emits light at a given point.


  • bool flags_albedo_tex_force_srgb

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

Forces a conversion of the albedo_texture from sRGB space to linear space.


  • bool flags_disable_ambient_light

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, the object receives no ambient light.


  • bool flags_do_not_receive_shadows

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, the object receives no shadow that would otherwise be cast onto it.


  • bool flags_ensure_correct_normals

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, the shader will compute extra operations to make sure the normal stays correct when using a non-uniform scale. Only enable if using non-uniform scaling.


  • bool flags_fixed_size

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, the object is rendered at the same size regardless of distance.


  • bool flags_no_depth_test

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, depth testing is disabled and the object will be drawn in render order.


  • bool flags_transparent

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, transparency is enabled on the body. See also params_blend_mode.


  • bool flags_unshaded

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, the object is unaffected by lighting.


  • bool flags_use_point_size

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, render point size can be changed.

Note: This is only effective for objects whose geometry is point-based rather than triangle-based. See also params_point_size.


  • bool flags_use_shadow_to_opacity

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, enables the "shadow to opacity" render mode where lighting modifies the alpha so shadowed areas are opaque and non-shadowed areas are transparent. Useful for overlaying shadows onto a camera feed in AR.


  • bool flags_vertex_lighting

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, lighting is calculated per vertex rather than per pixel. This may increase performance on low-end devices.


  • bool flags_world_triplanar

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, triplanar mapping is calculated in world space rather than object local space. See also uv1_triplanar.


Default

0.0

Setter

set_metallic(value)

Getter

get_metallic()

A high value makes the material appear more like a metal. Non-metals use their albedo as the diffuse color and add diffuse to the specular reflection. With non-metals, the reflection appears on top of the albedo color. Metals use their albedo as a multiplier to the specular reflection and set the diffuse color to black resulting in a tinted reflection. Materials work better when fully metal or fully non-metal, values between 0 and 1 should only be used for blending between metal and non-metal sections. To alter the amount of reflection use roughness.


  • float metallic_specular

Default

0.5

Setter

set_specular(value)

Getter

get_specular()

Sets the size of the specular lobe. The specular lobe is the bright spot that is reflected from light sources.

Note: Unlike metallic, this is not energy-conserving, so it should be left at 0.5 in most cases. See also roughness.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to specify metallic for an object. This is multiplied by metallic.


Default

0

Setter

set_metallic_texture_channel(value)

Getter

get_metallic_texture_channel()

Specifies the channel of the metallic_texture in which the metallic information is stored. This is useful when you store the information for multiple effects in a single texture. For example if you stored metallic in the red channel, roughness in the blue, and ambient occlusion in the green you could reduce the number of textures you use.


  • bool normal_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, normal mapping is enabled.


Setter

set_normal_scale(value)

Getter

get_normal_scale()

The strength of the normal map's effect.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to specify the normal at a given pixel. The normal_texture only uses the red and green channels; the blue and alpha channels are ignored. The normal read from normal_texture is oriented around the surface normal provided by the Mesh.

Note: The mesh must have both normals and tangents defined in its vertex data. Otherwise, the normal map won't render correctly and will only appear to darken the whole surface. If creating geometry with SurfaceTool, you can use SurfaceTool.generate_normals and SurfaceTool.generate_tangents to automatically generate normals and tangents respectively.

Note: Godot expects the normal map to use X+, Y-, and Z+ coordinates. See this page for a comparison of normal map coordinates expected by popular engines.


  • float params_alpha_scissor_threshold

Setter

set_alpha_scissor_threshold(value)

Getter

get_alpha_scissor_threshold()

Threshold at which the alpha scissor will discard values.


  • bool params_billboard_keep_scale

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

Default

0

Setter

set_billboard_mode(value)

Getter

get_billboard_mode()

Controls how the object faces the camera. See BillboardMode.

Note: Billboard mode is not suitable for VR because the left-right vector of the camera is not horizontal when the screen is attached to your head instead of on the table. See GitHub issue #41567 for details.


Default

0

Setter

set_blend_mode(value)

get_blend_mode()

The material's blend mode.

Note: Values other than Mix force the object into the transparent pipeline. See BlendMode.

  • int particles_anim_h_frames

Setter

set_particles_anim_h_frames(value)

Getter

get_particles_anim_h_frames()

The number of horizontal frames in the particle sprite sheet. Only enabled when using BILLBOARD_PARTICLES. See params_billboard_mode.


  • bool particles_anim_loop

Setter

set_particles_anim_loop(value)

Getter

get_particles_anim_loop()

If true, particle animations are looped. Only enabled when using BILLBOARD_PARTICLES. See params_billboard_mode.


  • int particles_anim_v_frames

Setter

set_particles_anim_v_frames(value)

Getter

get_particles_anim_v_frames()

The number of vertical frames in the particle sprite sheet. Only enabled when using BILLBOARD_PARTICLES. See params_billboard_mode.


  • float proximity_fade_distance

Setter

set_proximity_fade_distance(value)

Getter

get_proximity_fade_distance()

Distance over which the fade effect takes place. The larger the distance the longer it takes for an object to fade.


  • bool proximity_fade_enable

Default

false

Setter

set_proximity_fade(value)

Getter

is_proximity_fade_enabled()

If true, the proximity fade effect is enabled. The proximity fade effect fades out each pixel based on its distance to another object.


  • bool refraction_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, the refraction effect is enabled. Refraction distorts transparency based on light from behind the object. When using the GLES3 backend, the material's roughness value will affect the blurriness of the refraction. Higher roughness values will make the refraction look blurrier.


Setter

set_refraction(value)

Getter

get_refraction()

The strength of the refraction effect. Higher values result in a more distorted appearance for the refraction.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture that controls the strength of the refraction per-pixel. Multiplied by refraction_scale.


Setter

set_refraction_texture_channel(value)

Getter

get_refraction_texture_channel()

Specifies the channel of the refraction_texture in which the refraction information is stored. This is useful when you store the information for multiple effects in a single texture. For example if you stored metallic in the red channel, roughness in the blue, and ambient occlusion in the green you could reduce the number of textures you use.


Setter

set_rim(value)

Getter

get_rim()

Sets the strength of the rim lighting effect.


Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, rim effect is enabled. Rim lighting increases the brightness at glancing angles on an object.

Note: Rim lighting is not visible if the material has flags_unshaded set to true.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to set the strength of the rim lighting effect per-pixel. Multiplied by rim.


Setter

set_rim_tint(value)

Getter

get_rim_tint()

The amount of to blend light and albedo color when rendering rim effect. If 0 the light color is used, while 1 means albedo color is used. An intermediate value generally works best.


Default

1.0

Setter

set_roughness(value)

Getter

get_roughness()

Surface reflection. A value of 0 represents a perfect mirror while a value of 1 completely blurs the reflection. See also metallic.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to control the roughness per-pixel. Multiplied by roughness.


Default

0

Setter

set_roughness_texture_channel(value)

Getter

get_roughness_texture_channel()

Specifies the channel of the ao_texture in which the ambient occlusion information is stored. This is useful when you store the information for multiple effects in a single texture. For example if you stored metallic in the red channel, roughness in the blue, and ambient occlusion in the green you could reduce the number of textures you use.


  • bool subsurf_scatter_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, subsurface scattering is enabled. Emulates light that penetrates an object's surface, is scattered, and then emerges.


  • float subsurf_scatter_strength

Setter

set_subsurface_scattering_strength(value)

Getter

get_subsurface_scattering_strength()

The strength of the subsurface scattering effect.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to control the subsurface scattering strength. Stored in the red texture channel. Multiplied by subsurf_scatter_strength.


Setter

set_transmission(value)

Getter

get_transmission()

The color used by the transmission effect. Represents the light passing through an object.


  • bool transmission_enabled

Default

false

Setter

set_feature(value)

Getter

get_feature()

If true, the transmission effect is enabled.


Setter

set_texture(value)

Getter

get_texture()

Texture used to control the transmission effect per-pixel. Added to transmission.


Default

Vector3( 0, 0, 0 )

Setter

set_uv1_offset(value)

Getter

get_uv1_offset()

How much to offset the UV coordinates. This amount will be added to UV in the vertex function. This can be used to offset a texture.


Default

Vector3( 1, 1, 1 )

Setter

set_uv1_scale(value)

Getter

get_uv1_scale()

How much to scale the UV coordinates. This is multiplied by UV in the vertex function.


  • bool uv1_triplanar

Default

false

Setter

set_flag(value)

Getter

get_flag()

If true, instead of using UV textures will use a triplanar texture lookup to determine how to apply textures. Triplanar uses the orientation of the object's surface to blend between texture coordinates. It reads from the source texture 3 times, once for each axis and then blends between the results based on how closely the pixel aligns with each axis. This is often used for natural features to get a realistic blend of materials. Because triplanar texturing requires many more texture reads per-pixel it is much slower than normal UV texturing. Additionally, because it is blending the texture between the three axes, it is unsuitable when you are trying to achieve crisp texturing.


  • float uv1_triplanar_sharpness

Default

1.0

Setter

set_uv1_triplanar_blend_sharpness(value)

Getter

get_uv1_triplanar_blend_sharpness()

A lower number blends the texture more softly while a higher number blends the texture more sharply.


Default

Vector3( 0, 0, 0 )

Setter

set_uv2_offset(value)

Getter

get_uv2_offset()

How much to offset the UV2 coordinates. This amount will be added to UV2 in the vertex function. This can be used to offset a texture.


Default

Vector3( 1, 1, 1 )

Setter

set_uv2_scale(value)

Getter

get_uv2_scale()

How much to scale the UV2 coordinates. This is multiplied by UV2 in the vertex function.

Default

false

Setter

Method Descriptions

Returns true, if the specified Feature is enabled.


Returns true, if the specified flag is enabled. See Flags enumerator for options.


Returns the Texture associated with the specified TextureParam.


If true, enables the specified Feature. Many features that are available in SpatialMaterials need to be enabled before use. This way the cost for using the feature is only incurred when specified. Features can also be enabled by setting the corresponding member to true.


If true, enables the specified flag. Flags are optional behaviour that can be turned on and off. Only one flag can be enabled at a time with this function, the flag enumerators cannot be bit-masked together to enable or disable multiple flags at once. Flags can also be enabled by setting the corresponding member to true. See Flags enumerator for options.


Sets the Texture to be used by the specified TextureParam. This function is called when setting members ending in *_texture.
