Unity GLSL Shaders

Hello Again,

In an earlier post of mine about WebGL I describe a few methods to enable WebGL on a Mac (Safari) the reason I did this was to view a few interesting shaders.. (is now ShaderToy.com) Now comes the cool part..
I actually got those same GLSL shaders I wanted to view running in Unity (yes for me that is a big thing).. Check out a few of these screenshots I took… It wont be long now and I may even integrate them into Image Effects on Cameras..
If only I didn’t suck at math so much I’d be able to write these kinds of shaders myself. I think I should write-up a tutorial of some kind on how to do this basic conversion to give people a starting point, let me know what you think.

Take a look and take care.

Here’s a Link to the Unity Shaders based on the Shader Toy Shaders: [download id=”29″]

    Hi there!

    I like to know more about how you maked the WebGL shaders run in Unity? I am currently trying to convert this tunnel shader to Unity3D:


    But I am not sure if I have to rewrite the shader syntax or if I can import WebGL shaders into Unity3D – can you answer that?

    I would also appreciate if you would share your Unity3D shaders – that would make the post much more valuable and attract commments ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for the comment and the link as well, it definitely explains the process well ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’ll post the collection of shaders I converted. They currently do require Unity to be running in OpenGL mode [at least for windows it does… on mac it works for sure].

    Thanks, that is just great! The shaders will come in handy as references for my next project.

    Hey, really cool shaders, but isn’t there a way to use these shaders in directx mode in Unity?

    Hey man, great work, appreciate you sharing. This may be a little noobish, but how do I get your shaders to work in Unity on windows?

    Any help would be ace, cheers

    Would love to know how you converted these shaders into unity, the very least have a link to the original shaders so we can compare the two.

      the link to the original shaders is the link to ShaderToy

    Thank you for converting these. Saved me a load of time working out Unity’s special flavor of shader language.
