    Even so the shaders are not directly interchangeable, TMPro could be leveraged for some advanced text layout.
    But this would require some efforts to integrate the two systems.

    note: VRTFX uses fragment shader for the modeling, but open/manages TTF directly in C# (run-time)

    An example of the "Shell" transparent mode.

    Those are the ... (period character from the string) using the transparent volume with noise.
    (I placed a unity sphere to show the volume interaction with solid geometry)

    No ETA, I need to get the animation side of this going to make it a worthwhile asset.
    I should have some time in the coming weeks to work on this. (or should I say next year :)

    Is this all in shaders or can it be used for physics geometry?

    The current bounding volume is a box. But its possible to create tighter geometry for more accurate collisions.
    (Alternative would be using the SDF data natively in the physic engine? no idea if this possible)
    But anything vertex based will not work on those objects. The geometry is evaluated per pixel, long pass any of the geometry pipeline.

    note: even so this bypass the geometry pipeline, interesting deformations can still be done.

    notice: Past few snaps been have been done using HDRP and ShaderGraph. (2D text using Unlit Master)
