Using Simplygon with Unity LODGroups

This post will showcase how we can use Simplygon to generate LOD levels to populate Unity's LODGroup component. We are going to use cascaded reduction pipelines with screen size as stop criteria. This means we can think of LOD transitions in terms of visual difference instead of polygon count and distance to camera.

Bake textures into vertex colors

In this post we are going to bake textures into vertex colors. This is useful for LODs which are really far away, where we just want some color. In order to do this, we need to disable sRBG on all texture nodes in the scene. So we'll cover how to traverse shader network as well.

Bake material data into textures for Unity physics meshes

Physics meshes are used in almost every 3d game. It is also very common that we want to know the different materials of the physics object for spawning certain impact effects. In this post will showcase how to optimize a physics mesh and keep material data in Unity as a texture.
