It seems quite hard to find free godot shaders tutorials, anyone who knows some good sites or good youtube channels? Please drop them below.

Always take a look at the documentation, there are some useful tutorials:

I have looked into that already but its very brief. I need something compressive. Thanks for your reply anyway.

Though brief it tells you all you need to know and if you haven’t yet please read The Book of Shaders. IMHO glsl is not beginner friendly as a whole so don’t look for tutorials as you need a comprehensive understanding of it’s protocols first.

There is no one size fits all with shading languages and any 20min video will only further confuse you on a very broad topic.

These aren’t in the public domain but you can have a look at this or this for reference.

Amazon has some great books whose names escapes me at the moment but something to get your feet wet here

Thanks, seems like glsl has more documentation so I should probably start with that and then figure out how to translate that to godot.

About the translation part it’s well documented here

Using the visual shader node tool I was able to convert many of Unity’s default shader graph so anything under that should be achievable. Another good source of reference specifically related to Godot is GDquest’s Shader Secrets
