    This product contains an assortment of Unreal Engine assets which can be imported into a pre-existing project of your choice.

This shader blends two colors around geometry curves and normal map curves. For example, the wood material's diffuse is entirely generated from a base color, edge color, and a normal map. This means the wood color can be completely customized. It also means you don't need to bake curvature from other tools. Using this master material, you can get a great stylized shader with only a normal map.
