TECHNICAL INFO

  • Uses the World position of each pixel to drive the UV coordinates of a pulse material, offset by the pixel normal to follow the texture's contours and avoid a flat look.
  • Blends this effect with other Post Process effects using a stencil buffer for masking out or manipulating specific meshes
  • A control script manages the entire effect and can include custom behaviors such as ping-pong, fades, color, and timing manipulations
 
 

A wide variety of effects can be quickly achieved and iterated upon through Parameter Tweaking
