    • Complete Book Description

        • Understand the structure of Surface Shaders through easy to understand step-by-step examples

        In Detail

        Since their introduction to Unity, Shaders have been notoriously difficult to understand and implement in games: complex mathematics have always stood in the way of creating your own Shaders and attaining that level of realism you crave. Transform your game into a highly polished, refined product with Unity’s post-processing effects.

        “Unity Shaders and Effects Cookbook” is the first of its kind to bring you the secrets of creating Shaders for Unity3D – guiding you through the process of understanding vectors, how lighting is constructed with them, and also how textures are used to create complex effects without the heavy math.

        Starting with essential lighting and finishing up by creating stunning Screen Effects alike those in high quality 3D and mobile games. Discover techniques including Normal mapping, Image based lighting, and how to animate your models inside of a Shader. Explore the secrets behind some of the most powerful Shaders including skin and hair! With “Unity Shaders and Effects Cookbook” what seems like a dark art today will be second nature by tomorrow.

        What you will learn from this book

        • Use textures to create complex lighting without the need for complex and performance-heavy lighting rigs
        • Master the art of using math to construct shiny objects as well as soft objects
        • See what it takes to create more complex surfaces like skin and cloth
        • Take a look at why a Shader is expensive and what works well for mobile platforms as opposed to PC platforms
        • Enter the world of creating post effects and make your game look visually stunning
        • Understand what goes into the structure of Shaders and why lighting works the way it does
        • Build your Shader knowledge by understanding how Diffuse and Specular work and understand how to use them in creative ways
