Minecraft shaders are modifications that improve the game's overall visuals. They fundamentally alter the game's lighting, shadows, block movement, water reflections, visibility, optical effects, and much more. 

Even with the Minecraft 1.19 upgrade, the vanilla edition of Minecraft will always feature the most basic visuals. As a result, people are continually requesting to utilize shaders in the game. Fortunately, the modding community is so swift that gamers may obtain updated shaders for the game very immediately.


How to Get Shaders for Minecraft 1.19

Install Iris And Any Shader Packs You Choose

To run shaders in Minecraft 1.19, players must first download all of the required files. Because the popular Optifine mod has yet to be released for the newest version, users can explore alternatives such as Iris and Sodium. Sodium is a graphics optimization patch that, when combined with Iris, allows shaders to be used in the game.

Players may visit this website to download the Iris installer, which will also install Sodium. After that, gamers may go to this website and select the shader they like. Shaders like BSL, Sildur, RedHat, and others are well-known in the game.


Iris And Sodium Are Being Installed Into The Game Folder

After downloading all of the files, players may use the Iris installer to install all of the shader modifications. A dialog window with a basic installation process will appear. Players may pick the Minecraft 1.19 version and the 'Iris+Sodium' option here. Later, they must locate the game folder, which is located in 'C:\Users\(Your PC Name)\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft'. Finally, uncheck the 'Install as Fabric Mod' option.

Following configuring everything, gamers may just press the install button. The installer can be dismissed after the installation is complete.


In The Launcher, Select The Iris And Sodium Versions

Then, open the official game launcher and look for the new 'Iris & Sodium' Minecraft 1.19 installation under the Java Edition menu.

Find The Shaders Tab And Folder

After successfully entering the game, players will notice a 'Fabric (Modded)' indicator at the bottom left. Players may install the shaders by going to 'Settings' and then 'Video Settings.' The Sodium mod has provided gamers with a fully new UI. One of the video settings tabs will be 'Shaders,' with the 'Open Shader Pack Folder' option visible.

When users open the shader pack folder from the patched Minecraft 1.19, a file explorer folder will appear, allowing them to easily drag and drop shaders into the game. The compressed shader file does not need to be unzipped. After that, gamers may choose the shader and enable it in the settings.
