Creating cookies for the Built-in Render Pipeline

The most convenient way to create a cookie for use with the Built-in Render Pipeline is to create a grayscale texture, import that texture to Unity, and then let Unity convert the texture’s brightness to alpha.

Note that in the Built-in Render Pipeline, cookies only use data from the alpha channel. This means that you can define a shape for a cookie, but not a color.

To do this:

  1. Create a grayscale texture in the image editor of your choice. If you are creating a cookie to use with a Spot Light, lay your texture out as a cubemap. If you are creating a cookie to use with a Point Light or Directional Light, lay your texture out as a regular 2D texture.
  2. Place the texture in your Project’s Asset folder to import the texture into Unity.
  3. In your Project view, select the Texture Asset that represents the texture. Unity displays the Texture import settings in the Inspector.
  4. In the Inspector, set the following values:
    • Set Texture Type to Cookie
    • Set Light Type to match the Type of the Light that you are creating the cookie for
    • Set Alpha Source to From Gray Scale
  5. At the bottom of the Inspector, click Apply. Unity applies the updated import settings to the Texture Asset.

Note that the pixels of a cookie does not need to be completely transparent or opaque, but can also incorporate any values in between. You can use in-between values to simulate dust or dirt in the path of the light, or to simulate caustic effects such as those produced by the ridges in a car’s headlight.
