Please support Lightweight Render Pipeline
« on: June 16, 2018, 07:16:58 PM »
Hi,

I tried Dynamic Fog & Mist with Lightweight Render Pipeline and found that it doesn't support LRP. There isn't any fog.

Thanks,
Anh

Hello Anh,

Yes, Unity new SRP are completely new rendering systems that are not compatible with builtin rendering engine. This means that most image effects and shaders must be rewritten (and some of them from scratch) to support specific SRPs. It's not simply a minor change though, not a simple API change that must be embraced - the architecture for the new SRP require that packages supporting SRPs must also be distributed and installed as different packages to the builtin versions to avoid conflicts.

So when Dynamic Fog & Mist supports LWRP, that means there'll be two different packages, the current one for built-in engine (as the 99% of assets), and a new one designed for LWRP which will probably be a free update for existing users.

Problem right now is that SRP is still experimental and Unity is introducing breaking changes in the packages. So we're still waiting for some mature release before providing support for LWRP - the publisher community has requested to Unity to also provide support for a common syntax for surface shaders between SRPs. All in all, SRPs still feel too experimental from a publisher perspective although image effects like Dynamic Fog & Mist will be ported eventually to LWRP it's simply there's no ETA yet, sorry.

Regards

Dynamic Fog & Mist now supports SRP!
Check out version 6.5 now available on the Asset Store.
Here's a video of the setup process: https://youtu.be/54acrFiZxJ0
