2018 September Updates!
« on: September 11, 2018, 06:48:19 PM »

Cool highlights to share with you and new asset updates during last month. Enjoy the reading!

Volumetric Fog & Mist 9.4

Unlimited point light support plus material integration multiplies the value of Volumetric Fog & Mist. The update now available for all customers will be released soon to the Asset Store as a free upgrade!

Add virtually unlimited point lights to your fog (up to hardware/GPU capability). Track their positions, colors, ranges and intensities automatically. Add fascinating glow effect to your scene!
Material integration means that the core shader of Volumetric Fog & Mist can now be embedded into other shaders (like an include file) allowing the fog to render in the same pass! Add the fog to your transparent materials and avoid transparency issues and costly additional render passes.

In addition to these two great features, the new update includes:

  • Added Force Composition option - can be used to improve edges when MSAA is enabled
  • Added custom parameter for new point lights check interval (defaults to 3 seconds)
  • API: added public TrackPointLights(force) argument to force immediate update of point lights
  • API: added GetFogOfWarAlpha method
  • [Fix] Fixed rare black artifacts when using blend transparency and depth blur due to NaN pixels in the frame buffer
