    Can you explain how I would go about rendering a Unity Terrain but to look like a hologram with your asset? Looking to do something like you see in the movie Avatar.

    We'll work on updating an option to do this.


    We sent you a PM regarding this. Did our solution work?


    PM sent.

    Version 1.2 has been submitted to the Asset Store.

    This adds new support for light sources and sounds to the Andromeda Editor that are based off of the flicker of the hologram. All this greatly adds to the effect and customization.

    Can this be used to "hologram-ify" a whole set of UI objects, like either NGUI or the new Unity GUI in 4.6? I'm working on a game that has need of a lot of interactive in-game holographic interfaces, and this would greatly simplify my asset creation requirements :)

    We haven't tested it yet with GUI's, but I'm sure it's something we can add to our next update. It would simply require modifying the GUI's colors/alpha values instead of the model's renderer values.

    We will try to add full support with our next update.

    Can you say if this shader will work with the Oculus Rift?

    Hello, I wonder if it would be possible to make with this something similar to what is shown in the Hackers movie in the Gibson computer interior GUI, it is shown starting on the minute 1:11 of this video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wXBe2jTdx4

    I mean if you create a square rectangle and then apply this andromeda shader and could be some way to add some animated letters and numbers.

    Thanks for any help

    I can't see why it wouldn't work. I'm sure it won't be a problem.


    Yes, I think this is totally possible. Andromeda can scroll textures for a similar effect in that video.

    Thanks for your very fast answer.

    If it is possible, how would you make the scroll textures to show over the hologram effect, I would buy if this can be done but I do not know how to do it.

    Thanks for your help

    It does work with Unity 5, but you will need to remove the script (a script that loops an animation for the demo) that causes an error because Unity won't automatically update it. It isn't needed so it can be deleted.

    We will submit an update for Unity 5 within the next week or so for those who are interested.

    have you tried to do what BHS suggested in post #65? Like to remove that script? What else is not working?

    Thanks

    Hey everyone!

    Sorry for the delay.

    Andromeda 1.3 (for Unity 5) has been tested all the way to Unity 5.3.3 with no issues. We will be submitting some time today.

    What part isn't working? Everything we tested worked perfectly fine, other than having to remove LoopAnimation script that doesn't properly updating when updating to Unity 5.

    Any idea if this would work on the Hololens? I guess it should do?
