Post news RSS Interstellar Marines: Playing with Image Effects in Unity

I recently sat down to satisfy my inner graphics-whore (please excuse my French) and started fooling around with the new and updated Image Effects in Unity 3.4, testing performance, spending a bit of R&R adjusting various settings to extreme "over-the-top" effects! (I guess I've been watching to many Frostbite 2, CryEngine and UDK videos lately)! :)

Playing with Image Effects in Unity

Jump to DevBlog on InterstellarMarines.com


Not much to say really; the scene was made quick with a few assets you've already seen a million times (except maybe the trees)
. The Image Effects active are Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, Bloom and Lens Flares, New DLAA Antialiasing, Depth Of Field 34 and Vignetting (Which you can toggle on 1-5 keys).

  • Warning:
  • Open Door Development is ALL about showing "Work in Progress" ... We hope you can take it! :)
  • Warning:
  • This Prototype is not optimized for optimal performance so if you're "playing" on a small notebook, please do not expect the best frame-rates in the world!
  • Warning:
  • Deferred lighting and post-process image effects are calculated based on screen-space pixels, so please be sure to bring down the resolution if your native default is too high!

"Over-the-top" exaggerated realism with Image Effects

Interstellar Marine in T-pose, with the background completely blurred by DOF including a few hexagon BOKEH's working to bring a bit more realism in terms of out-of-focus glow distortion.

Take the map for a spin and post your frame-rates below if possible ... The scene clocks +60FPS (720p) on our old but still rather powerful GTX280 / 2.4 Core2Quad which leaves room for a lot of optimization from both Unity and our side.

For the love of the game!
