    Hi, the current system do not support any of the new pipelines yet.

    I plan a remake of both for HDRP and started work already on that, in parallel with current systems.

    Imagine HDRP as be another platform, like Unity HDRP and has almost nothing to do anymore with Unity because is totally different from rendering - shaders standpoint, so getting there unfortunately needs a full remake and lot of work to get it done, but will get there eventually gradually.

    The work involved is not unlike making the asset from scratch for Unreal for example, both Unreal and HDRP are equally unknown and hard to use currently and Unity gives zero support in converting to HDRP with zero support for it, so remaking it for Unreal would probably be many times easier.

    The HDRP will also be a different asset, since it is not possible to have all in one and HDRP is another platform and very different, so there is nothing i will keep from current system, almost all will be remade from scratch for the new pipeline, from the sky shader to water etc.

    This is because Unity decided to make 2 new Unity versions that are not compatible to the current one or between them and also have different libraries, so nothing of old system can be used, so converting directly ranges from extremely hard to totally impossible because of total lack of any information on how to do it.

    The video helps, thanks! Though a mouse cursor is not visible in the video. It's a bit weird, but ok.

    May I ask, what's the difference between optimization of infiniGrass and infiniTree? In what situations I should use each?

    Infinitree is mainly for making each tree unique and use crazy l-tree like nested formations to build trees. Those are then batched from their parts for performance and gpu instancing is also used in latest shader as well, if you choose to duplicate the batched model at run time.

    The system can be used to also export those batched trees as unity objects to reuse in other scenes etc

    Infinigrass is more managed, you have a central manager that plants the grass, u can grow and ungrow it and handle painting on any mesh and orientation and grass properties, also batched grass based on chosen distances and batch members count etc

    Each serve different purpose, so can be combined in various ways, e.g meshes exported from infinitree can be brushes in infinigrass etc

    The upcoming V2.0 of infinigrass is also like a new system and leaps beyond anything in v1.x, in both usability and performance, uses the current as base and adds pooling, auto ground adaptation that works also on any mesh and at run time, grid based update system, auto split in multiple grass managers, vastly faster editor and run time performance, tiny ram usage, instant get in game time, batched billboards, even more next gen looking special shaders, and much much more like spline system for planting, with river curve option, massive fast planting based on rules, even at run time, a new brush editor etc

    Sun shafts in HDRP, WIP
    Hi,

    Yes, i plan to support everything eventually, but start with HDRP. I now know how to convert image effects in Unity 2018 version for HDRP, so at least will do that.

    For Unity 2019 i think Unity made it even more complicated and read that is not possible to use the stack expansion method anymore, so for Unity 2019 is wait and see, as requires to change the render pipeline itself, which is a no go as will be incompatible with everything if done this way.

    Unity is making it exponentially harder to support its new systems, i have already put huge work on doing the Unity 2018.3 HDRP conversions and seems that nothing may work in Unity 2019. The new Unity approach in delivering stuff that get depreciated and are just not well though out (or not at all through out) a few moths later is really very hard to follow unfortunately.

    Good evening,

    Would it work good on Oculus Go? (it's mobile, but a high-end Android based VR device.)
    I'm particularly interested on the water/ocean solution.
    Thank you in advance,
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    I have not tested on the device, so cannot say for sure. The system has various modes, so some of them will work by default (e.g. the volumetric shader based clouds), the rest i have not tested (the new InfiniCLOUD volume clouds), i will test asap and get back on this.

    WIP on the new configurator that will also include the new InfiniCLOUD module directly and many new tweaks to get great result directly, like in the tweaked prefab that comes with the system.

    A new video tutorial will also follow after this update is completed, that will detail the new step by step configuration method.

    Sky Master ULTIMATE v4.8

    The new v4.8 of Sky Master ULTIMATE has been submitted to Unity asset store
    and is now up at Unity Asset Store.

    The new system integrates the InfinICLOUD module in the general configurator and offers tweaks for best visual results, as well as more accurate reflections in sky master water for amazing water effects.

    Also the sky can now be fogged by the cloud script directly, for matching scatter effects with clouds and there is no need to add the global fog effect (unless need volume fog that affects scene objects). The requirement to setup a terrain is also now optional.

    A new tutorial series is also available, this is the first version of those tutorials, so will be updated soon as well.

    Everyone that would like to have the new version for Unity 2018.3.14, can send me a PM with the invoice and will send a Google Drive download link asap.

    More tweaking for clouds and artistic takes for next version demo

    v4.8.2 will also include a small fix where the reflection of the light scatter effects on clouds based on sun would rotate more than proper when camera moves up or down. Also a small fix where wind direction is inversed in clouds than in windzone.

    The new version will be submitted to the store today

    Some tests on 4K performance with high settings. Performance is measured in my non gaming laptop !!!

    On desktop should be exponentially higher, if anyone would like to test on a good rig i can send the demos the shots are from in Google Drive.

    Hi there.

    I purchased via one of the vouchers you posted last week, so not sure if such a discounted purchase would qualify, but might as well try my luck. ;-) It will be a while before I use Sky Master ULTIMATE (looks amazing though) but InfiniGRASS also looks very useful and I may be able to use. I plan to post reviews once I have had a chance to use, but no ETA on those.

    PS. Those screenshots you posted on Tuesday look amazing.

    If we wanted to have static clouds and no movement from the weather/sun/clouds, where do we adjust that in the component?
