Vanilla PBR is a new resource pack that enables Minecraft players to take full advantage of the new Deferred Lighting Rendering Pipeline Shaders and features in Minecraft Preview and above.

A derivative work & offshoot of Vanilla RTX, the most popular resource pack for Minecraft with RTX, Vanilla PBR covers every block with meticulous care & consistent details.
Everything has been heavily adjusted where needed in order to ensure proper functioning & compatibility with the new Deferred Lighting Rendering Pipeline.
Various other visual properties of your worlds have been adjusted using the new deferred lighting pipeline features.

Vanilla PBR is created for the Deferred Rendering Pipeline and will work on all supported platforms (Android, Xbox & Windows PCs).
