X-Ray And Hologram Shader Pack

by Studio Speets in Surfacing


X-Ray and Hologram Shader Pack v1.72


One shader, no keyframes, infinite possibilities.

A beautiful X-ray and hologram shader pack for both Eevee and Cycles, including 10 preset materials! Gives your 3D models an x-ray, hologram of futuristic sci-fi look! 6 FX layers with meticulous mixing controls, color control, visibility and masking controls, animation / speed control and custom nodes with exposed parameters like position, scale and rotation of the FX ensure that you yourself can quickly create the coolest looking hologram, X-ray or even fantasy and special FX materials in no time. Don't want to waste time and get started immediately? Check out the 10 preset materials that come with the pack!


This pack works well with the 4K Animated Grayscale Texture Loops and the Blender Exploder Tool


This video covers version 1.6



Built for customizability

The whole point of the shader is customizability. All important parameters that you would want to control are exposed in the custom nodes. That means that everything can be controlled from the main shader window and you won't have to dive into the custom nodes themselves. Logical node layout and flow, and color coded frames help you orient yourself with ease - this way you'll be creating your own variations in seconds!


NEW! Load in your own images and videos as an FX layer!

Version 1.7 brings a brand new FX layer (and Mask layer) to the X-ray and Hologram Shader - it is now possible to load in your own images and videos into the material, allowing for even more customization. You can pan and rotate this node as well, procedurally, without any keyframes. Or not, it is all up to you! 

To get you started, the X-Ray and Hologram Shader Pack now also comes with 5 home made high quality looping animated smoke textures that you can load into the Image node. These are part of https://blendermarket.com/products/4k-animated-grayscale-texture-loops

Please note, the GIF below does not loop nicely, because the smoke loops are 13 seconds long, too long for the GIF.




Procedurally animated!

No keyframes, no Geometry Nodes, 100% shader (except Image Node FX Layer which uses any texture you want).

Animation can be disabled for static materials.

  • One master material made for fast customization
  • Everything is controlled from the main shader / material window, no need to dive into custom nodes
  • Includes 10 presets made from the same master material (some presets are legacy presets, made with an older version of the shader)
  • Features lots of custom nodes with only the useful parameters exposed
  • Logical node flow, clear descriptions and annotations make it easy to understand
  • Making your own variations is super easy!
  • 6 different visual FX layers, 3 mask layers
  • Easily turn off or on FX layers. Don't need all 6 of them? No problem!
  • 1 animation node with adjustable speed output
  • FX layers have their own adjustable speed inputs as well
  • Multiple color ramps give color or clamp the visual effects
  • Color the mesh by vector - change the vector and you change the direction of the color scheme
  • Easily change visibility or mix effects with mixer nodes
  • Full control over hologram patterns as this shader is NOT based on the Wireframe node
  • Change speed, size, rotation, mix, visibility, colors, everything!
  • 100% procedural! No texture maps, no Geometry Nodes, no UV's and no keyframes needed
  • Easily enable / disable hologram mode. Disabled = pure X-ray
  • Future updates are free for purchasers
  • A percentage of the revenue goes to the Blender Development Fund!
  • New in v1.1 - striped hologram mode!
  • New in v1.2 - dotted holograms
  • New in v1.3 - Eevee support and procedurally animated holograms!
  • New in v1.31 - Better shader node layout, descriptions and colored node frames
  • New in v1.4 - A set of 5 materials / shaders has been added as presets
  • New in v1.5 - Added an extra layer with a custom noise node + mask layer with custom noise node
  • New in v1.6 - 2 extra FX layers (5 total now!), reworked the fresnel node (faster calculation), improved node layout with annotations
  • New in v1.7 - 1 extra FX layer + 1 extra mask layer (image nodes) + added location, rotation and scale + multipliers to various nodes + added 5 looping smoke .MP4 videos to use in image node!
