    I like the way this one looks (the lighting is very good), but the Cutout version seems to lack an Alpha Cutoff slider. Additionally, the part that does get cut out leaves a transparent image behind:

    Is there a way around this? The "TransparentCutout" rendering mode gives me dithered transparency, which I don't want either.

    Hi! The latest version available on the repository will allow you to turn dithering in cutout off.

    One large change planned for release in 1.3 is a rework to how light directionality is handled. It should allow avatars in worlds with a mixture of baked and realtime light to handle it much better, similar to Standard, while still looking properly cel shaded!

    In this image, a baked light source from the left is contributing the most light, causing the shading to face it - but a magician is throwing shade from ahead. This is all designed to work fine with existing materials, too!

    With the conclusion of a long testing period, I'm pleased to announce that 1.3 is ready for release!
    The latest version is available from GitLab in the main post, or here.

    Hi Silent,

    Let me just say that I love your shader. However, I have noticed there is a problem that shows up when entering certain worlds or coming under certain lighting conditions, such as Cafe Leblanc. As you can see in the pictures, the shader is suppose to have a blue appearance for the hair, yet sometimes it appears white.

    I should mention that the blue portion is a separate material (so is the white portion in the original picture). The rest of the body is texture atlased in blender.
    Here are the settings I used for the shader:

    Please help, I have tried to mess with the specular mapping a bit more and tried a few other settings, but to no avail. Thank you for your time.
