SORA Shaders 1.19 are great shaders for any mid- to high-end PC. They are relatively well optimized, which makes them run well on mid-tier graphics cards as well. The SORA Shaderpack is one of the lesser well-known shaderpacks, which is not fair, because it actually looks wonderful.

ProjectLUMA edit

SORA Shaders are not a not new stand-alone shaderpack. The shaderpack is an edit of the ProjectLUMA shaders by DeDelner. This shaderpack was rewritten from scratch, to replace KUDA Shaders. Whereas ProjectLUMA is not updated very frequently, because it is Patron-exclusive, SORA Shaders are available for free.

Features you get with this shaderpack include a few high-end features such as high-resolution shadows, great reflections and basic PBR support.


There are many settings for you to change and optimize with the SORA Shaderpack. You can toggle shadow resolution from a very low all the way up to a very high resolution. If you’re not in to going over every single setting manually, there are also profiles. You can toggle between Lite, Medium, Ultra (default) and Cinematic. By changing profiles, most settings will automatically change accordingly.

The difference between Lite and Cinematic are pretty significant, whereas Lite will reduce the shadow resolution and will make the shaderpack run better overall. As becomes clear from the comparison, Cinematic adds a bunch of effects such as depth of field and great shadows, at the cost of FPS.
