Transparent Cutout Shader Family

Note. Unity 5 introduced the Standard ShaderA built-in shader for rendering real-world objects such as stone, wood, glass, plastic and metal. Supports a wide range of shader types and combinations. More info

which replaces these shadersA small script that contains the mathematical calculations and algorithms for calculating the Color of each pixel rendered, based on the lighting input and the Material configuration. More info

.

The Transparent Cutout shaders are used for objects that have fully opaque and fully transparent parts (no partial transparency). Things like chain fences, trees, grass, etc(Ericsson Texture Compression) A block-based texture format that compresses textures to significantly reduce file sizes without causing a noticable reduction in image quality.

AssetsAny media or data that can be used in your game or project. An asset may come from a file created outside of Unity, such as a 3D model, an audio file or an image. You can also create some asset types in Unity, such as an Animator Controller, an Audio Mixer or a Render Texture. More info

needed:

  • One Base texture with alpha channel for Transparency Map

Assets needed:

  • One Base texture with alpha channel for Transparency Map

Transparent Cutout Specular

shader-TransCutSpecular
shader-TransCutSpecular

Assets needed:

  • One Base texture with alpha channel for combined Transparency Map/Specular Map

Note: One limitation of this shader is that the Base texture’s alpha channel doubles as a Specular Map for the Specular shaders in this family.

  • One Base texture with alpha channel for Transparency Map
  • One Normal map normal map, no alpha channel required
