SC Post Effects

Currently this package is considered in “Beta” and is offered at a reduced price. Some issues may arise or are a work-in-progress.

This package extends Unity’s Post Processing Stack with 28 additional effects, to enhance your art style or create feedback effects.

NEW: Sunshafts
NEW: Fog
NEW: Cloud Shadows
NEW: Lens flares
NEW: Radial blur

‍Under development:
– Sketch effect

⚙️ Post Processing Stack benefits
• Effects work in Scene View
• Changes made in Play-mode are saved
• Profile-based settings, easily create presets
• Blend effects through local or global volumes (example scene included)
• Cinemachine support
• Custom render ordering

Future proof
Both Deferred and Forward rendering are supported, as well as a Scriptable Render Pipeline (LW/HD/Custom).

⚗️ Experimentation
The power of the PPS lies in its ability to layer many smaller effects. Experiment with the rendering order to nail a unique aesthetic for your project. Several examples profiles are included.

Unlike the legacy Image Effects, and many other assets, the Post Processing Stack renders all effects more efficiently, by sharing common resources throughout the stack.

Post effects always have a constant, resolution dependent, performance cost. No matter the scene complexity.

✔️ Compatibility
VR has been tested with Single-Pass Rendering using an Oculus Rift. Some effects are excluded

Currently, this package is primarily developed for PC so the assets can mature, before exploring compatibility with the mobile platform.
