    Woah... amazing :eek:
    I'd say something in the $50 range. It looks far too superior to be cheap :p

    I'm gonna guess €64.32 (sorry, not sure what that is on the US asset store), like Amplify Shader, as it looks like the visual editor for the post processing stack! Good work :)

    So nice to hear! ;)
    Thanks for Your opinion, I'm glad that you liked it :)
    Not only looks, but always works! :D
    It's always hard to guess with review team, but I'm sure that April is the probable month.:)
    It would be $60 as we talk about dollars ;)

    Yes, but PPU is mainly focused on Post Processing, not on surface shaders.

    I'll lock in between @Mauri and @jeromeWork - for $55.00, though I think that might be a little low. ;)
    Love the sleek clean editor @DawidMoza !

    @DawidMoza Congratulations to the release!

    Unfortunately I get 3 errors after importing PPU (stack2 imported before and working) ?!
    PPU errors.jpg

    After deleting the "ColorCurves" sample files errors are gone and its possible to open PPU. Then I wanted to try the 2 remaining samples, but these don't work, the next errors appear:
    PPU errors2.jpg

    Same effect if I create new shaders :(

    PS: I've used Unity 2017.3.0f3 & PostProcessingStack2 from GitHub

    Hello! Thanks for buying!

    First error seemed like a difference in code between newest PPSv2 and PPSv2 that I was using creating asset (it took 2 weeks to review, so there is no way to work on the newest one), but I've downloaded the newest version form GitHub today, and everything still work perfectly. I've also downloaded Your version of Unity (asset was created and published using 2017.1), and that was it. It looks like in newer versions of Unity cachedData is no longer public and it behaves like internal, so You just have to move ColorCurves.cs into PostProcessing/Runtime where You can add it into Effects or You can create Your own directory. That's a really strange behavior, and I'll do my best to fix it with the newest update or at least write additional instructions in the docs how to handle it.

    //EDIT 1: chachedData was always internal, but it looks like 2017.1 doesn't care about being internal at all and 2017.3 needs to have it in particular directory. So another way is to just go to PostProcessing/Runtime/Utils/Spline.cs and change internal into public (line 31). I feel confused about how Unity in fact works.

    Second error occurs due to inappropriate assets structure. What I mean is that PPU shaders use HLSL libraries from PPSv2 and default path leads to such file structure:



    Very sorry for any troubles. I hope that at least my response was helpful, I'll improve code and docs in the next update, so everything should be clearer.

    Thanks @DawidMoza //EDIT1 does fix the issue.
    PPU looks like a cool asset with great potential ;)

    Some of the samples does show strange behaviors, f.e. "blur" does work in scene view but not game view. I created a simple depth image effect, which works in game view but turns the scene view to grey?!

    Do you plan to add more samples / tutorials? I would like to see some shader samples with multiple passes / loops ( depth of field, volume fog)

    Nice to hear that it works!

    I've also done pull request, so if accepted - PPSv2 should have chachedData as public by default.

    //EDIT 1: Pull request was accepted.

    Maybe You'll post some screenshots with those strange effects? I'll try to figure something out.

    That seems to be a good idea, I'll try to prepare next update so it will be available after launch sale, which ends by 11 May, or 14, depends when it'll be reviewed.

    World node? Would You like to precise Your request a little bit? WorldSpace node which is a representation of _WorldSpaceCameraPos built-in variable, contains all the necessary outputs to fully use float3 type of data.

    Hello everyone, I bought Post Processing Ultimate installed it on Unity 2017.1.0f3, in the results I got errors in the screenshot, I did not have any information on the installation, I asked the developers to understand or suggest the solution how to fix it.

    Hi there!

    I read that's also possible to create Single Pass Stereo shaders. Does this feature also support Dynamic/Adaptive resolution? If not, is it going to be a new node, or there's a workaround for that?

    Thanks :)

    Do You mean something like that?

    It might be a little hard to see, because line between "eyes" isn't marked at all, but in fact that's VR output.

    Yay!
    If that's the exact same feature of the camera component and that of the Rift Camera Rig, that's exactly what I'm looking for, thanks! :)

    May I ask if that requires some special handling from withing the asset or does it work right out of the box? (I already purchased the asset a while ago, but I'm beginning to use it only today)

    Well, all You have to do is to use StereoUV instead of DefaultUV and everything should works as I presented. If something won't work I would likely say that's a problem how Your VR producer integrated its product with Unity. The asset which I've used here is Chromatic Aberration, included of course.

    Also how is it in depth to Amplify Shader Editor? That is what does this asset have that Amplify Shader Editor doesn't have?

    Currently no.
    Well in terms of Post FX, this picture says much:

    (Left side from Amplify docs)
    - Support for PPSv2
    - Render queue that was developed for creating easy loops and managing multi-pass shaders
    - Support for custom properties like Spline
    - Environment was precisely developed with Post FX in mind

    If someone is focused on creating PostFX than PPU is clearly a winner, especially now, because it's on sale.

    I recognized their nodes as default built-in data from CGINC, PPU uses data from PPS, so nodes ale similar, but a little bit different.

    I hope that You will enjoy using Post Processing Ultimate! :D

    Hi, I've been using the Tool, and I like it, but I have some issues with some things... I will write a better post later giving my feedback, but for now, I want to ask something.

    I don't understand how the Depth is supposed to work.

    I have this scene:

    upload_2018-7-25_22-8-46.png

    That looks cool, but I think that's not what I would expect the Depth to do.

    This seems as if 1 is close to the camera, and it goes down as it goes far away... but how far is the 0? does it eventually reaches negative values? Unless I'm understanding something wrong

    I would expect the Depth to behave differently... 0 being close to the camera.... and go away in higher
    If the Depth behaves that way I can work with it, and do many things.

    I would expect it to behave something like this in Shader Forge or Amplify Shader:

    upload_2018-7-25_22-10-26.png

    In both, After that, I want to Remap the values, to something more useful using the projection values of the camera.
    I get this in Shader Forge and Amplify Shader:

    upload_2018-7-25_22-13-16.png

    But in Post Processing Ultimate there's no Remap funcion (or I can't find it), but luckly there's a custom Function tool, so I made my own remap like this

    upload_2018-7-25_22-14-6.png

    The functions works, I tested it with other stuff, And tried to implement it like this:

    upload_2018-7-25_22-17-27.png


    But it displays just White.

    What could I be doing wrong?

    I would like to have the depth, from 0 to 1 by the near and far values of the camera planes.

    Maybe that would be useful for You? I works with clip planes, near is black and far is white.

    Thanks, I think That works... Also you should consider adding a Remap Node, that's very useful.

    Another question, can I get this Info? and could it be possible to get the World Position of the Objects seen?

    Yes, definitely, I made a similar function to Yours, but with support for half4.

    This view would be available if I would add more camera textures into PPU, which isn't problem itself, but I couldn't find a full list of those textures online, so I will probably have to find them myself. In Your very case I would have to implement _CameraGBufferTexture2, did anyone heard before about it? :D

    What do You mean by that? Every pixel should return position of object that it represents? Well, I would have to find out if it's possible with fullscreen shaders, but it seem to be possible only for surface shaders.

    It's possible. In the old screen effects there is a "global fog" effect. In it, for fading fog on the height are the world coordinates of the pixels. Everything is simple enough.

    A very useful function will be to write the result to the command buffer. Sometimes I need to render additional textures, which I then send to the shaders in the scene. I would like to render them together with other effects, and not render them in a separate script.

    How to control the values of type: bloom, color grading, vignette, etc. through a script or animation?
