Please check the description, limitations, disclaimers before buying the asset!

○ Overview

Combine the power of the award-winning shading and unification tools provided by the Vegetation Engine with the power of the optimized impostors provided by Amplify Impostors! The Amplify Impostors Module includes presets and runtime shaders for perfect baking with Standard, Universal, and HD pipelines, while the seasons, overlay, wetness, wind, and interaction remain dynamic!

○ What’s new?

Version 1.3.0 closes the gap between the Vegetation Engine and the Amplify Impostor Module shaders. Now all features like Transmission, Diffusion Profiles (HDRP), Baked Detail Blending, Top Projection, working all Light types, and more tweaking settings are supported! The Baker shader is greatly improved, resulting in much closer results between the original materials and the baked impostor!

Requirements

The latest version of the Vegetation Engine is required for the module to work!

The latest version of Amplify Impostors is required for the impostors baking!

🛈 The Vegetation Engine is a set of high-quality shaders and tools designed to unify 3rd party vegetation under the same system. Enable high-quality wind motion, interaction, seasons, wetness, subsurface, height-based blending, etc. for all vegetation assets with Standard, Universal, or HD Render Pipeline!

🛈 Amplify Impostors is a modern and flexible impostors authoring tool used to bake high-density geometry to quads while keeping the original shading! Impostors can be moved, rotated, scaled, receive and cast shadows, intersect other objects or impostors, and can be used with LODGroup or any LOD system.

○ Limitations

🞫 Shader Model 4.0+ capable devices are required (Desktop / High-End Mobile)
