Beautify is a full-screen image processing effect that improves the image quality in real time producing incredibly crisp and vivid scenes.
Beautify uses several algorithms in a single-pass resulting in a very fast and efficient image effect:
- Analyses local pixel contrast, enhancing visual features and producing sharp images.
- Reduces or completely removes banding in gradients, usually seen in sky boxes due to color quantization.
- Adjusts pixel saturation, boosting pixel color without over saturating the image.
- Factory presets or global effect slider, which takes care of all effect details in one step.
In addition to this unique image enhancement technology, Beautify provides state of the art filmic ACES tonemap operator and high quality extra effects which you can combine just enabling them in the inspector. These are high quality effects which are combined in the same render passes providing superior performance.
Beautify is very easy to use, just add the image effect to your camera, choose a preset and that’s all.
It works with forward and deferred rendering paths as well as linear and gamma color spaces.
3 shader variants are included: a High-Quality version that should be the preferred choice, a Best Performance version which sacrifices some fidelity in favour of performance and a Basic version which just comes with basic effects (sharpen, color adjustment, dithering).
