Will the editor easily let you create your own shaders?

Will there be fresnel shaders? Phong shaders? Diffuse lighting?

Thanks for the quick replies. :D
Will we be able to create our own terrain(heightmap)? Or will it be where we have to choose from a list of terrains?
So basically will we have a terrain editor where we can raise and lower the terrain?
Thanks

You can create and modify the terrain however you see fit.

You don't explicitly create your own shaders, you enable / disable features and set their attributes to define the material. The shader then gets automatically generated for you.

It's difficult to explain without revealing things that we can't yet reveal. The editor is very, very powerful and can do a LOT more than what's been suggested thus far. Keep in mind that our artists have a lot of experience with the majority of the tools used in the industry and are extremely happy with the current version of the editor. Once people actually get to see it in action, it will be easier to understand why this is.

You'll understand the need for the secrecy when we can actually unveil it. Until then we simply have no choice but to give vague responses.
