Wir haben für euch die Top 5 Unity Assets – VFX Shaders – 2023 zusammen gestellt.

Der Unity Asset Store beherbergt eine wachsende Bibliothek an kostenlosen und kommerziellen Assets.
Diese sind sowohl von Unity Technologies als auch von Mitgliedern der Community erstellt worden.
Es ist eine große Auswahl an Assets ist verfügbar, von Texturen, Modellen und Animationen bis hin zu ganzen Projektbeispielen, Tutorials und Editor-Erweiterungen.
Man kann auf die Assets aich direkt über den Unity-Editor integrierten Assetstore zugreifen. Dort kann man die Assets direkt für sein Projekt herunterladen und importieren.

Ohne groß durm herum zu reden:

Platz 5 – UBER – Standard Shader Ultra


Standard Shader on steroids ?
That’s what UBER is all about:

Forum & demos | Documentation PDF

Most prominent features are:

– Various Parallax techniques (full Z-Write!)
Tessellation variants
– Refraction with chromatic aberration
Translucency (based on DICE’s model)
Dynamic weather (snow/rain)
Triplanar selective (fast approach)
– Vertex blend painting (2 layers mode)
– Well sorted out and clean interface
– Fully configurable vertex color usage
– Presets functionality

– Works with Alloy lighting (deferred)

Package requires SM3.0 GPU (DX9).
SM5.0 (DX11, OGL4) for tessellation and better performance is preferred…

Platz 4 – SSAO Pro


SSAO Pro offers a high-quality, stable and fast version of SSAO for Unity with added features like lighting contribution, distance cutoff with smooth falloff and occlusion color.

Documentation | Video
Website | Support Forum

The SSAO effect (short for Screen-space ambient occlusion) approximates ambient occlusion in realtime. It relies on the depth and normals buffers to darkens creases, holes and surfaces that are close to each other. In real life, such areas tend to block out or occlude ambient light, hence they appear darker.

High Quality
Adds a whole new visual dimension to your scenes using a stable and powerful algorithm.

Multiple quality settings, downsampling levels, variable blur quality Fine-tune the effect to your needs !

Wide or sharp radius, intensity, occlusion distance and color, distance falloff Plenty of settings to tweak !

Full source code included.

Models & textures in screenshots and video by Manufactura K4 and Unity Technologies (not included in the package).

Mobile isn’t officially supported, use at your own risk!

Platz 3 – Colorful FX


Colorful FX is a collection of high-quality, fast and customizable post-processing effects and color adjustments for Unity. Continuously supported since mid-2012 !

Documentation & screenshots

Clean user interface with tons of options, sliders, presets. Complete user manual with screenshots and tips. All effects can be animated via scripting or using the Animation window.

Each effect has been tuned for maximum performances with multiple shader variants depending on the settings you actually use.

Ready for production use on desktop, webplayer and mobile platforms (iOS and Android).

Check out the user manual for a complete list of all effects !

Full source code included.

Models & textures in screenshots by Andromeda Station and Unity Technologies (not included in the package).

Platz 2 – Beautify 2 – Advanced Post Processing


** NEW! **

Beautify 3 is here. Get it now for the latest effects, options and compatibility.

This asset contains 3 packages:

– Beautify for Builtin Pipeline

– Beautify for URP (Universal Rendering Pipeline)

– Beautify for Post Processing Stack v2

(Looking for HDRP support? Click here).

Beautify 2 is a full-screen image post processing effect that improves the image quality in real time producing incredibly crisp and vivid scenes.

Key Features:

Enhances visual features, restores or augment image detail, producing sharp images – in many cases the change can be dramatic, like switching to High Definition.

Improves pixel color when needed, without oversaturating the image.

Removes the extra blur caused by many antialias post effects.

Reduces or completely removes banding artifacts in gradients, usually seen in sky boxes due to color quantization.

Improves perceptual texture quality – even low resolution textures look better.

• Works with forward and deferred rendering paths as well as linear and gamma color spaces.

• Works on WebGL, mobile, 2D and 3D.

• VR Multi-Pass, Single Pass Stereo and Single Pass Instanced supported in built-in pipeline.

• VR Multi-Pass supported in PPSv2.

• VR Multi-Pass and Single Pass Stereo/MultiView supported in URP.

Beautify’s customers love it!

„Added to my ‚Must-Have-in-All-Projects‘ list.“

„I couldn’t make a game without it anymore.“

„I will be importing it into all my games.“

„It’s the ‚make pretty‘ button the CGI crowd longed for since the beginning of mankind.“

„A genuine enhancement. Visuals are dramatically improved.“

Additional Integrated Effects:

In addition to the unique image enhancement algorithm, Beautify also includes advanced, high-quality effects with unique options. All these effects are carefully engineered for performance and correctly integrated in the same render pass for superior performance:

Sun Lens Flares. Fast GPU flares with diffraction ghosts, halo and animated Sun rays.

Purkinje. Simulates retina achromatic vision plus blue spectrum shift under low light conditions.

Outline. Adds a colored border to all objects. Depth or Color (Sobel) based modes (works in 3D and 2D).

Chromatic Aberration or chromatic distortion, simulates light rays passing through a lens focus at different points, depending on their wavelength.

Daltonize. Intensifies pure red, green and blue basic colors.

Depth of Field with Bokeh. A classic photographic effect, smoothly blurs the image based on distance to focus point with autofocus and hexagonal highlights options. Supports transparent objects and exclusion layers. Includes many advanced options like foreground blur, autofocus, custom focus distance, target follow, etc.

Anamorphic Flares. Also known as JJ Abrams flares, they add a truly cinematic touch to your scene.

ACES Tonemapping. Approximates Academy Color Encoding System transform from HDR color space into LDR at the appropriate stage within Beautify effect chain.

LUT Color Transformation. Apply your favourite 2D or 3D LUT (Look-Up Textures). Includes a LUT browser that works with the optional LUT Pack for Beautify. Includes option to import 3D .CUBE format.

Bloom. Beautiful and smooth glow effect with many effect customization options, selective layer, depth attenuation,

Lens Dirt. Spreads the light on the screen when looking to bright sources according to different customizable patterns and spread ratios.

Eye Adaptation. Reproduces retina reaction to quick changes in scene luminance with separate options for light and dark adaptation.

Vignetting. Darkens image corners with intensity, color and mask options. Now with Fade Out and Blink effects, cool for transitions and immersive eye effects.

Frame. Add any colored or texture-based rectangular frame. Includes a Frame browser which let you explore the matte and artistic frames included in the Frame Pack.

Night Vision. Visualize objects in the scene in the dark. Includes noise and scan lines.

Thermal Vision. Uses a red-blue spectrum to highlight warm and cold colors. Also adds scan lines, noise and a subtle screen distortion.

Pixelate. Create a retro pixelated effect.

Blur. Add a background blur effect with customizable intensity.

Several demo scenes are included to demonstrate the different presets and their effects.

Pipeline Compatibility Setup:

Built-in pipeline: supports Unity 2020 2021. Just add Beautify script to the camera and configure.

URP: supports Unity 2020.3 2021. Setup video.
