  • Write shaders from scratch in ShaderLab and HLSL/Cg
  • Combine shader programming with interactive scripts to add life to your materials
  • Design efficient shaders for mobile platforms without sacrificing their realism
  • Use state-of-the-art techniques, such as volumetric explosions and fur shading
