[RELEASED] SC Post Effects - Post Processing Stack v2

Discussion in 'Assets and Asset Store' started by StaggartCreations, Jan 18, 2018.

    Currently this package is considered in "Beta" and is offered at a reduced price. Some aspects may not work correctly. The final price will be set at $30.

    This package offers 25 non-photo realistic (NPR) post effects, made to reap the full benefits of the Post Processing Stack v2 (separate download).

    A download link and set up instructions are included in the documentation.



    Edge Detection


    Imgur album with screenshots of all effects:

    Combined effects examples (profiles are included)

    Post Processing Stack benefits
    • Effects work in Scene View
    • Changes made in Play-mode are saved
    • Profile-based settings
    • Blend effects through local or global volumes (as in Unreal Engine 4)
    • Cinemachine support
    • Custom render ordering

    Future proof

    Both Deferred and Forward rendering are supported, as well as the new (LDF/HDF) Scriptable Render Pipeline.

    The power of the PPS lies in its ability to layer many effects. Experiment with the rendering order to nail a unique aesthetic for your project. Several examples profiles are included.

    Unlike the legacy Image Effects, and many other assets, the Post Processing Stack renders all effects more efficiently, by sharing resources throughout the stack.

    Currently, the beta version is primarily developed for PC so the assets can mature, before exploring compatibility with other platforms.

    Submitted the package for approval! This will probably take between 2-4 weeks, before it is reviewed.

    I've added a "Blur" effect, which I will add in the following update.

    If anyone has any suggestions for any effects that have wide uses, I'm open to suggestions!

    EDIT: Also added a Box blur method next to this Gaussian blur, it's a lot cheaper ;)

    Added an Ambient Occlusion effect (LBAO) designed for 2D games:


    It could also be used for a 3D scene, but it's luminance-based, so the result wouldn't be a great as the default AO post effect.

    Added a pseudo lens flares effect. It has the option to either use the bloom buffer, or the scene's luminance.

    Exaggerated example:
