Array Too Large for Shader Error FIX
_spec Shaders math fix
Convert your blender or Google Sketchup or other model to obj then use
to orient, sort the facet and generate vertex normals on the model
to load the model and generate texture normals for 2d sprite
The TMC LUX Lighting Engine consist of 4 shaders to do texture normal lighting with specular and ambient occlusion as extra rendering options. The lighting engine also has a sprite based lighting engine and shader which can be used for nice ambient effects such as light coming from a window. this sub system does not depend on a texture normal. Also include is a basic shadow system which.
The asset also comes with Preview/Fix Tool with a few necessary features such as converting a grayscale heightmap to a normal texture, flipping the normal texture color values arround and other basic image manipulations.
Perhaps the second best feature included in the asset is the platform engine which supports slopes and moving platforms.
- Texture Normal Lighting Engine
- Sprite Based Illumination Engine
- Simple Shadow Engine
- Robust Platformer
- Preview and Normal Manipulation Tool
- Virtually limitless number of lights in the room*
- Virtually limitless number of Sprited Lights in the room*
- 1000 lights in view*
- 20 Lights per rendered sprite/primitives*
- Ludicrous number of sprited lights in view
- Layered system to have different layers of illumination
- Sample objects covering all basis
- Z support for positioning lights in actual 3d space
- Cel Shading, Multiple Levels of Smoothness
- Android Compatibility Mode Option Available in Engine. My phone can't run this and surely others can't while other may so I made sure the system and subsystems can be disabled without effort
With this asset I offer access to my slack tutoring group for private support, simply email me to set you up.
THINGS TO BE AWARE OF
The asset texture group I used in the test was not exported, or should I say the sprite's group was not reset to default so the demo sprites will merge with whatever group Studio decides in your project. Just go through the demo sprites and reset the texture group to default...
Remember, for most optimal rendering, use the texture groups feature to group your sprites and images properly and set the group to no-cropping, no re-scaling. Please beware of the texture grouping parenting. it's a bit hiffy and if you use the feature you may end up with your sprites spread all over the texture pages. children groups are split in favor of the parent texture group page when studio packs the sprites on the page.
For best performance it is best that all your images related to a render be on the same page. In the case of the animation, it is best that all images required by the shader, the diffuse (sprite), normal, specular, occlusion be on the same texture page as opposed to have a texture page for each image. I tried taking advantage of the other texture gpu slots (which occurs if you draw through a shared and pass extra images and those are not on the same page as the source) but this proved very inefficient.
