Shader Patches Overview

Use shader patches to apply complex changes to materials. Shader patches are particularly useful for determining the appearance of a 3D object’s surface.

Available Shader Types

Shader TypeDescription
Visual shaders

Use with other patches to change the appearance of materials.

Visual shaders are capable of deeper complexity than the shaders found in the Inspector.

Signed distance fields (SDFs)

Create procedural textures and different visual effects building from a shape, like a circle or a star.
