> So I had an idea of a way to make sharing shader trees / materials easier.
> It goes like this:
> User #1
> 1) Sets up a cool cycles shader
> 2) Using an Add-on, upload it an account on Sharing Website
> 3) Shader Tree definition gets converted to a JSON object, transmitted to
> the site and stored in a database.
> 4) A daemon running on another box generates a test render of the material
> making it available on the website.
> Other Users
> 1) Users on the site can browse, tag, critique, favorite materials they
> 2) They can get a code from the site that they can plug into the add-on to
> download the JSON, which gets parsed and reconverted back into a nodetree
> in their active material in the node editor.
> I've got proof of concept on the JSON conversion.
> Thoughts? Is it a dumb idea?
