Description

A script interface for a projector component.

The Projector can be used to project any material onto the scene - just like a real world projector. The properties exposed by this class are an exact match for the values in the Projector's inspector.

It can be used to implement blob or projected shadows. You could also project an animated texture or a render texture that films another part of the scene. The projector will render all objects in its view frustum with the provided material.

There is no shortcut property in GameObject or Component to access the Projector, so you must use GetComponent to do it:

function Start() {
    // Get the projector
    var proj : Projector = GetComponent (Projector);
    // Use it
    proj.nearClipPlane = 0.5;
}
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { void Start() { Projector proj = GetComponent<Projector>(); proj.nearClipPlane = 0.5F; } }

See Also: projector component.

Properties

aspectRatioThe aspect ratio of the projection.
farClipPlaneThe far clipping plane distance.
fieldOfViewThe field of view of the projection in degrees.
ignoreLayersWhich object layers are ignored by the projector.
materialThe material that will be projected onto every object.
nearClipPlaneThe near clipping plane distance.
orthographicIs the projection orthographic (true) or perspective (false)?
orthographicSizeProjection's half-size when in orthographic mode.

nameThe name of the object.

Public Methods

BroadcastMessageCalls the method named methodName on every MonoBehaviour in this game object or any of its children.
CompareTagIs this game object tagged with tag ?
GetComponentReturns the component of Type type if the game object has one attached, null if it doesn't.
GetComponentInChildrenReturns the component of Type type in the GameObject or any of its children using depth first search.
GetComponentInParentReturns the component of Type type in the GameObject or any of its parents.
GetComponentsReturns all components of Type type in the GameObject.
GetComponentsInChildrenReturns all components of Type type in the GameObject or any of its children.
GetComponentsInParentReturns all components of Type type in the GameObject or any of its parents.
SendMessageCalls the method named methodName on every MonoBehaviour in this game object.
SendMessageUpwardsCalls the method named methodName on every MonoBehaviour in this game object and on every ancestor of the behaviour.
GetInstanceIDReturns the instance id of the object.
ToStringReturns the name of the game object.

Static Methods

DestroyRemoves a gameobject, component or asset.
DestroyImmediateDestroys the object obj immediately. You are strongly recommended to use Destroy instead.
DontDestroyOnLoadMakes the object target not be destroyed automatically when loading a new scene.
FindObjectOfTypeReturns the first active loaded object of Type type.
FindObjectsOfTypeReturns a list of all active 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.
