○ Overview


Optimized vertex animated wind shaders fit for low poly style props with global and detail motion, color gradients, vertex color, and base map support. Customize the look and feel of your objects with over 30 parameters. All shaders are built with Amplify Shader Editor, with feature toggles for easier usage and performance. The gradient and motion masks can be set to vertex positions, vertex colors or vertex alpha, making the shaders compatible with any low poly asset on the store.
