Unity has a robust built-in lighting system, but what if you want to do something radically different? What if instead of 4 vertex lights in a scene for a mobile game, you need a hundred? Or what if you want to apply a rippling-water effect to the entire scene without using a costly render-to-texture? In this introductory-level workshop, Brian will walk through the process of creating custom CG shaders in Unity to support alternative lighting models, such as the one he created for Nightmare: Malaria.
