For a project I needed to create a close up star flare effect inside Unity, and I didn’t have any ready asset/plugin/system at the time. So I had to improvise a ‘proof of concept’ quickly.
This was the result:
Then I shared this on Twitter like it was such a big deal, but lockdowns were heavy and I needed to feel that I was using my time creatively…
In the end, project scope changed and I just put up a simple flare effect which was visible from far away, giving the same feeling. And this project now exists just as a video.
