    Heard there's some sexy tone mapping / colour correction at mobile performance levels happening here among other surprises. AFAIK he's only bug testing now.

    Hoping to slot this into Coldfire Keep before it's released to replace the existing effects I'm using. Quite keen to see how it goes :)

    Only using bloom and vignette, but I want to experiment. I was always planning to play around to try and create a more grimy look.

    You can do vignette easily, bloom in initial released would require some setup on your part to keep glowing objects
    in a different rendergroup ( going to make this easy in an update ).

    There are other things to get a "grimy" look like noise, or scrolling a old film texture really fast over screen.

    ive had a mess with youre core framework (best not ask how) and it is S*** hot, so i expect the same from this, and a more relevant buy too. theres a very nice fellow who helped me out for doing postfx for unity free so i could get oculus rift working in free (two reasons the oculus sdk is pro only are native dll needed and postfx, both of which i found ways round), although youd have to buy his plugin i'm not going to S*** on his achievement and generosity cause its great so i guess if it comes to unity free postfx, id suggest either, but if you dont mind, if i purchase this can i discuss with you a shader for oculus use? well, actually i can just post the shader needed here its a specific barrel distortion that goes to two cameras, i'd just want to be able to test the implementation myself

    Most Everything can be tweaked from inspector or you can override these values from script.
    If an effect is always on no need to script anything just check active on manager for that effect.

    Example of how easy it is to call effects from script!
    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. using UnityEngine;
    3. using System.Collections;
    4.  
    5. public class AnimActions : MonoBehaviour
    6. {
    7.     private static EchoPFX _fxFlash;
    8.  
    9.     void Start()
    10.     {
    11.         _fxFlash = new EchoPFX ( "MainRenderGroup","WhiteFlash" );
    12.     }
    13.  
    14.     public void FlashScreenWhite()
    15.     {
    16.         _fxFlash.Start ();
    17.     }
    18. }
    19.  
    Almost there!! 2 things left on my bug list. ( just hope the testers dont find more )

    hey, skype's Lazygunn feel free to add, the image effect is to adjust the image to the lenses the oculus rift uses to do part of its magic, this part being i think, to appropriate as much peripheral view as possible, how the stereoscopic images converge is more defined in software i think

    I'm really looking after a solution that doesnt mean buying anything, without excessive messing around, but i dont know how easy it is to provide your effect in a way that might do that. It just bugs me that the OR cant be used with unity free for some of tge most anoying reasons that unity free can tend to be a bit useless - no proper rendertextures, no native code, very annoying, but if i could provide a solid answer in the post fx at least then the whole hassle of circumventing the other other problem, which is no native dll, so im sending the oculus orientation with a little server sending stuff by websockets on localhost is a little less painful to bear

    Peoples extended trial to untiy pro for buying the OR are starting to run out but i think even though ive tried my best to provide a unity free alternative, its still a ballache

    Not nearly as awesome as the postFX package itself, I've been testing this for echologin and I'm trying to stop myself from adding scanlines, vignettes and noise to all my games just for the hell of it cause they look so cool I've not even scratched the surface of all the possibilities yet.

    I've been helping Echo add features squash bugs. I've also been helping him test playmaker support which I'm sure some of you will appreciate.

    This package is essential stuff, I can't imagine not using it in a project now I've had a taste of it.

    Can't wait, this is the fx studio that fills in effects that Unity doesn't do, and a few it does, so the speed gain from using it will help regardless if you use mobile or not. Nice I can make my own fx in it. Nice work, good luck on release.

    As suggested by you(on core framework thread) to use post fx's in order to achieve vortex type fxs.
    Can i use this plugin with Unity free version and what is the launch price for this plugin :)

    Thanks.

    There is no vortex type effect in this package yet, though it might be possible to add it using custom code option ( if you know a little about shaders )

    The release price is $75 usd

    This vortex effect would it be just flat on screen or a vortex in scene that moves in 3d ?
    ( Just wondering cuz one way is easy the other is a ton of work )

    Just brilliant we are getting every single thing that most users wanted from years before done in Unity now by developers of Asset store.

    Will this package include effects like vignetting and SSAO by default ?

    In relation to this package, and just out of general curiosity, how long does it generally take for Asset Store products to be approved?

    Everything works in Free Unity versions now, with only one drawback == when not using unity pro you can only use 2 passes on 1st render-group, all other layers must only use 1 pass.


    ( this update will be in v1.1, i will submit that as soon as 1.0 goes thru )
