    Hello everyone, and welcome to the Visual Effects Forum,

    In this section, you will find resources and discussions related to Visual Effect Graph, the next-generation solution for real-time Visual Effects. Feel free to browse these resources and participate in discussions.

    Getting Started with Visual Effect Graph.

    Visual Effect Graph is available with Unity 2019.3 Scriptable Render Pipelines and is released as out-of-preview with the High Definition Render Pipeline. To install it, simply install the High Definition Render Pipeline, or create a High Definition Render Pipeline project, and you are good to go!

    Visual Effect Graph is also compatible as preview with Universal Render Pipeline, with the following limitations:
    • Only Available to Compute-Capable hardware
    • Supports only unlit particles at the moment.
    To install it alongside URP, simply install the Visual Effect Graph package in the Package Manager (once your Universal Render Pipeline package is up to date),

    Here are some valuable online resources you should also definitely check out:

    In order to understand more how effects can be made, we are releasing a set of Samples, made with Visual Effect Graph as an Open Source project. These samples cover many features available in Visual Effect Graph and its synergy with High Definition Render Pipeline.
