Features

  • Uses NEW FAST cracks rendering method. Implementation of the new cheap iterative technique of parallax for rendering deep cracks based on Signed Distance Field Textures. Thanks to using the SDF result, the effect stays clean and smooth even on close-ups using only 7 texture reads!
  • Advanced translucency options. Translucency supports depth fading fog for a better quality of covering the objects inside the ice.
  • Multiple types of refraction: box projection mapping/screen color/build-in refraction pin.
  • Extended reflection mode. System supports pre-rendered cube map reflections mapped on meshes using box projection/spherical mapping.
  • Icy vertex offset coating. Material supports configurable animated vertex displacement.
  • Masked dithering. Use translucent material only where you need it and dither the opaque material around the translucent regions.
  • An animated dust map with refraction noise makes the material look even deeper and more real.
