    If you want to learn more about the shading, there is a public sample on github here. The birthday concert was just added to the sample reel a few hours ago. https://github.com/ColinLeung-NiloCat/UnityURPToonLitShaderExample

  • NoiseShader

    Noise shader library for Unity

    Project mention: Using noise inside a compute shader? | reddit.com/r/Unity3D | 2022-11-04

    Hello! I'm working on a terrain generation project in Unity and I'm now at the point where I want to input some noise functions to get a nice output, however Unity has no built in noise function that I can use from within the shader! Even the intrinsic noise() function, which is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, can't be used here for some reason. I know that this package by keijiro is often recommended for this sort of thing, however the installation instructions are very vague and I have no idea still how to import and use it. If anyone has any tips on either installing this library or creating noise some other way I would love to hear them.

    I just tried the latest version from here https://github.com/VRCBilliards/vrcbce/releases and it seems to work fine, what error did you get?

  • Noisy-Nodes

    Adds various noise generation nodes to Unity Shader Graph, including 3D noise nodes.

    Project mention: working on a pseudo volume texture generator for 3D textures | reddit.com/r/Unity3D | 2022-08-24

    Using Jimmy Cushnie's noisy-nodes for shadergraph to generate the 3D noise.
