Important/Additional Notes:

  • It uses a "SceneCapture2D" for rendering the hit location and an additional "Render Material to RenderTarget" for dilating the blood mask for removing possible UV seams. It only renders when you request a new hit in the mesh, the character shader doesn't have any additional performance cost other than just having an extra texture in your material.
  • It requires your mesh to have a second UV (lightmap UV) that have a full body UV with no overlaping UVs for the blood mask to work. (you need to be able to edit your mesh UVs in a DCC software like Blender or Maya)
