    First of all, SRP is still experimental so things might change in the future especially for ease of use.

    Currently, this is how you can setup wind animation for foliage

    Needed - If your project was made from the HD template or was added by the package manager you will need the Scriptable Render Pipeline Data files from GitHub. If you got your project from the SRP GitHub repository you should already have what's needed.

    First thing is to enable Vertex Animation for the shader
    upload_2018-3-7_18-27-35.png

    Then you need to create an empty game object and add the "Shader Wind Settings" script to it.
    Then you can play with your settings to get the look you want. (Note: This will animate the whole mesh. I haven't messed with vertex painting to stop parts of the object from moving so I can't speak on that aspect.)

    At GDC it was said that demo forest will be available for download. Is there any ETA for that?

    Still waiting on an actual look at this demo. It's not much of a demo if it's never released.

    Unity does not mess people around without a good reason. The reason is staff are slammed with work, they will catch up, release something etc, we must be patient for our freebies.

    Yeah, no problem, as game makers, I think we all understand things sometimes taking longer than anticipated. Not complaining at all. Just making sure I did not miss it somewhere.

    I have read in some thread that the target is now release Book of the Dead in 2018.2... can anyone confirm?

    I have another doubt: is Book of the Dead built with the new HD Pipeline, right?

    There has been no target. Unity will post it on blog when it is ready, and it is done with HD.

    The book of the dead is the test case for HD pipeline, I expect both to be released when ready

    Well done for getting part of the Book of the Dead environment into the Apple WWDC keynote. I have long sung Unitys praises on this forum for doing things like getting the Unity compute shaders that work on DX11 working on other graphics APIs/platforms, very much including Metal. And I've long been a proponent of sticking more powerful graphics cards into macs, one way or another, so the combination of Unity and Apple pushing eGPUs is one that I am bound to applaud again today.

    The tree work was impressive and you can't get tree's from megascans, does anyone know if they were all custom made or used in conjunction with speedtree?

    yes, and please read the description, where it says to install in an empty project. The reviews have people trying to install it into their active project which of course results in much crying and heartache. So just don't do that.

    No, dont even install HDRP first. Just a normal empty project created with the plain '3D template'. The asset comes with its own version of HDRP.

    I'm a little confused by the licensing. They make the point of saying they used Quixel's MegaScan extensively. But in the License documents, they don't mention them anywhere.

    Are they indicating even though these textures/assets came from Megascans, they are still releasing them under the Asset Store License? (can be used commercially), or is this an oversight on their part?

    Hi Guys,
    Has anybody tried to use the book of the dead demo in VR?
    I tried it today very quickly. I imported the Steamvr asset and got an error about the canvas and can't run with VR.

    Any ideas?

    The HD render pipeline that the demo is built upon does not support VR yet.

    Thank you for releasing this. I have already started with the 'AssetsLibrary' scene to test the possibly of porting "Breath of a Forest" over from Unreal to Unity if the HD pipeline will have AR/VR support in final release of 2018.2. Is there a possibility of the stereo 360 capture working with it as well?

    The release of 2018.2 is not far away now and unless I've missed some important detail somewhere, AR/VR support for HD pipeline is still some way off, not a 2018.2 target.

    Or maybe it is more complicated than my previous post indicated, I just dont know.

    For example the following link is to a recent list of what features are supported in HD in 2018.1, and then a list of what is additionally supported in 2018.2.

    #758

    There are a couple of features that mention VR listed in the 2018.1 section, but I'm sort of assuming that more than those are required to support VR properly. Will post again if I find more info.

    Yea, my thoughts as well so that is disappointing but understandable. I guess I will have to stick with Unreal, which is not an issue since similar photo-realistic assets are available as well. I was hoping someone chime in if the 360 capture works since it doesn't use the VR pipeline, but I guess I will test it. If I can capture stereo frames, this will help me in adapting these to the Oculus Go / Carmack 5K video encoder.

    Starting with the default "3D" settings and importing into Unity 2018.2.2f1 (64-bit), all I get is some errors and empty scenes, with missing assembly reference.

    Where it says"3d" on your new project options click there you should see some new options for scene type.

    You need to load the necessary packages. Start by opening the package manager.

    Window -> Package Manager

    After that click the "All" tab and import the following packages.

    Render-pipelines.core
    Render-pipelines.high-definition


    Once that's done it should work.

    Turned out in the end that it was an import problem. I repeated the process about 4 times on different project folders until it imported correctly. Didn't change anything, just 3D and import.

    It's quirky like that I guess.

    I have to admit that Unity got a long way in graphics. I haven't had time to use HDsrp that much so it looks to me like a lot has been added. I might try converting some of my assets to HD sometime in the future, I'm one of those people that never gets satisfied with lightning (and I messed up with my pbr till now). Also, downloaded the demo, looks good but I have a question. Does the post-processing have some sort of light scattering or something? Kinda looks like SEGI voxel lights. I don't know anything about the lighting in HD yet...

    hi guys, I've just installed Unity Beta 2018.3.0b2 and when I click on the open in unity link of the "book of the dead" project, it just takes me to a dashboard showing me tutorials and projects but doesn't show me anything related to this project. Any insight on what I might be doing wrong?

    the graphics look great. It's really awesome that Unity made the assets available. Now just a waiting game for VR adaptation.... Come on team Unity!!
