    ▲ easy to use - drag & drop workflow and you're ready to go
    ▲ workflow simplified to few settings which works on the fly without baking or waiting for response
    ▲ ready-made presets for quick preview of different look
    ▲ fully described code
    ▲ constant updates and new features
    ▲ active development & support
    ▲ clean & unique modern style
    ▲ Stylizer has been carefully crafted, with in-game use optimisation in mind
    ▲ Documentation & Video Tutorial Included


    What's Inside:


    ▲ Stylizer Image Effect Plugin
    ▲ Palette Tool for specyfing colors and method
    ▲ Pattern Tool for prcodeural generting patterns
    ▲ Pixelation (Pixel Art) Image Effect Plugin
    ▲ Eight dithered shaders
    ▲ 45 Color Palette presets with great Color Grading Schemes
    ▲ 10 Pattern presets for image detail
    ▲ 16 scenes grouped into 4 categories (Apolcapse Scene, Detective Scene
    ▲ Mountains Scene, Space Scene)
    ▲ 40 unique models for Apocalypse Scene

    This is impressive! Definitely keeping my eye on this one! Can you use it as a material?

    @matperson Thanks for kind words. Yes you can replicated same effect of color grade using materials. There are in total eight dithered shaders available. ‘Standard’ and ‘Diffuse’ (Lambert) specify the lighting method used before the dithering effect is applied to the material.

    The ‘Standard’ shader uses a more heavy lighting calculation, based on the Unity Standard shaders, and offers a few more options. ‘Diffuse’ is a more lightweight shader based on the legacy lambert lighting calculations. Both have separate shaders for ‘Opaque’ and ‘Transparent’ materials. The ‘Transparent’ materials will use a cutout alpha method based on the pattern.

    Cheers, Tom

    @beffio Thanks for reply.

    One more question though, Can I use models from Stylizer - Extended in my own game commercially ?

    If you will use materials it will work without any problem that 100%. If you will use Image Effect it should for 90% work but I will give you that 100% reply till Monday. My friend has iPhone 5 so I will test on his iPhone.

    Hello

    Is it possible to achieve something like this in the image below?


    Also something like this?



    I see by using the right colour palette and right grain setting might be able to achieve these look? Also, does Stylizer works on terrain?

    Hi, I have a problem with the plugin.
    All of the demo scenes show up flipped on the game window.

    Is there something I missed?

    I'm Using Unity 5.6.0f3

    I've upgraded to 2017 and the flipping issue is resolved, however the entire demo scene seems to be in the resources folder, and it causes a almost 700MB of unnecessary bulk in a build.
    Can you tell us which items are necessary to stay in resources?

    @Ooi Yes you should be able to achieve that. I suggest you to pick 10-15 Colors using our Palette Picker Tool. Taake few colors from higlights, midtones & shadows. Apply grain and you final image/game should have similar feel & vibe.

    @rrahim We're supporting only Unity 5.6.1 or higher. It's written in asset description. Regarding resources. We will fix that in next update.

    Thank you.

    Hey just got Stylizer and I do quite enjoy the results... But what if I only want to apply the effect to one layer?
    I tried applying it to a camera and making the camera depth only and cull everything but that layer, but it produced a black texture on top of everything below that depth which just doesn't work. In other words, it looks like a black screen.
    Any tips on how I could apply the effects to just one layer?

    Are most of Stylizer's effects designed for mobile platform? I only build mobile games, need to know this beforehand.

    Thank you so much.

    Will this asset work with scriptable rendering pipelines?

    Hi there!

    Is this asset still getting support?

    I see no activity since September, even if the asset is actually discounted.

    It works in similar way as Unity Post Processing, at the moment there is no any way to apply it to one layer using one Camera. We will make an update once Unity will release PPv2 so we will be able to integrate it with their system which will allow you to affect only specific volumes or layers.

    Yes it works very fast on mobile. We've tested it many times.

    Yes it works for UI but you have to use camera as a source to draw UI. It will not work with word canvas.

    We've not tested this yet. We will let you know as soon as we will get some results.

    Yes we support it. Do you need any help?

    Hi Beffio!

    Sure, sent an email about the following topic. I was asking if I could upgrade from the Basic Version to the Extended version, since the new store really doesn't help in determining that. I reverted to the "old" store and I guess the answer is yes.

    I'm wondering if you're going to update the assets in some way to leverage the Processing Stack 2.0 of Unity 2018, or if the asset is going to remain as a standalone component. I'm not sure yet of what this would imply (or if it is possible), as I'm still getting up to date with all the Unity 2018 changes, innovations, and...work in progress features.

    Hi there,

    I'm working on an open-world game and I would like different areas to have a different palette. Does Stylizer contains "zones" where anything inside that zone reacts to that palette?

    Thanks

    Is this fully compatible with Unity 2018.1 and will it work together with Post-Processing Stack v2?

    Is there any way I can apply a palette and dithering to just a single material instead of the entire camera? I've tried but every time it just resets back to a default palette instead of the one I want to use as soon as I try and run the game.

    @beffio I'd like to use the dithering effect with pattern and color palette but I'm trying to have a similar color scheme to what I already have in the game then use the script to fine tune the colors. Is there an easy way to create a palette of colors that will get me fairly accurate default colors that I can later tweak?

    One other question: Can you use the color pallette and other effects in some way *without* using the dithering?

    Thanks, love the asset.

    Is there a maximum number of colours for a palette to be created?

    When I try to create a palette using this image (Amiga Deluxe Paint), Unity crashes.

    Hi @beffio!
    Good job with Stylizer, it's working great!
    I want to use it to render some 3d models on a specific camera, but I also need to be able to render 2D images behind those models on another camera.
    Right now, I can do that because the texture created by the styliszer camera don't have an alpha channel, so alpha is rendered as black.
    Is there an easy fix you could recommend my? I assume it was done this way for performance issue? In my case I only need this feature for some UI sections.
    Thanks!

    Since your asset is pretty unique, would be nice to have a WebGL application which can test with uploaded PNGs.
    I just wanna check these effects will be fit with my project.

    Is this still supported? because it seems the Dithering shader is no longer working in 2018.3.12, it looks too dark.

    I've noticed this asset got updated recently so I gave it another try in Unity 2019 but it still looks like this:



    It seems only the dithering option has the problem.

    Bummer, I was hoping the update fixed issues. The lack of communication from the author doesn't give me too much confidence.

    This asset is 50% off in the sale and I'd like to buy it but everything suggests it's broken and not being supported. Has anyone managed to get it working in Unity 2019? Any word from the developers?

    Hello guys,

    We’re sorry that you’ve got the problems. It works with Unity 2019, but remember that it only works with standard rendering piepeline (lwrp, universal, hdrp — doesn’t work).

    Thanks for the reply. I just bought it and tried it in an empty project in Unity 2019.2.9f1 and it seems to work as intended! I made sure to use SRP.

    Hey folks, I'm experiencing a bug in Unity 2019.2.9 which I believe is caused by Styliser Extended.

    When I try to rename a gameobject in the hierarchy, the rename is instantly cancelled. I'm unable to type in a new name, because I'm spit back out of renaming instantly.

    When I delete the entire Styliser folder it starts working again, which is how I know it's this plugin.

    Any ideas?

    Ok, I can see now that my tests look dark because I'm using Linear color space, when I switch to Gamma it looks good. Sadly I have some effects that need Linear so that reduces flexibility for what I want to do.
    Was this specified somewhere? I don't think I saw it in the documentation.

    It works! Make sure to pull sliders to the left for pixelated graphics, no to the right. Great asset.

    I used it in combination with the FPS camera controller build in ''Game Creator'' This works fine.
