Description

Compute Shader asset.

Compute shaders are programs that run on the GPU outside of the normal rendering pipeline. They correspond to compute shader assets in the project (.compute files).

Compute shader support can be queried runtime using SystemInfo.supportsComputeShaders. See Compute Shaders overview for more info about platforms supporting compute shaders.

See Also: ComputeBuffer class, Compute Shaders overview.

Properties

enabledKeywordsAn array containing the local shader keywords that are currently enabled for this compute shader.
keywordSpaceThe local keyword space of this compute shader.
shaderKeywordsAn array containing names of the local shader keywords that are currently enabled for this compute shader.

Properties

hideFlagsShould the object be hidden, saved with the Scene or modifiable by the user?
nameThe name of the object.

Public Methods

GetInstanceIDGets the instance ID of the object.
ToStringReturns the name of the object.

Static Methods

DestroyRemoves a GameObject, component or asset.
DestroyImmediateDestroys the object obj immediately. You are strongly recommended to use Destroy instead.
DontDestroyOnLoadDo not destroy the target Object when loading a new Scene.
FindObjectOfTypeReturns the first active loaded object of Type type.
FindObjectsOfTypeGets a list of all loaded objects of Type type.
InstantiateClones the object original and returns the clone.

Operators

boolDoes the object exist?
operator !=Compares if two objects refer to a different object.
operator ==Compares two object references to see if they refer to the same object.
