public var mipMapBias: float;
public float mipMapBias;


Mip map bias of the texture.

A positive bias makes a texture appear extra blurry, while a negative bias sharpens the texture. Note that using large negative bias can reduce performance, so it's not recommended to use more than -0.5 negative bias. In most cases better sharpening of the texture can be achieved by using anisotropic filtering. Also note that mip map bias does not work with MaterialPropertyBlocks, and some platforms, e.g., OpenGL ES based do not support it without custom shaders.
