TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS

Currently, standard baking is only supported if the shader exposes a Deferred path, such as Unity Standard shaders. However, the Impostors created can be used in both Forward and Deferred modes. Baking objects with custom shaders is supported via Custom Material Baking.

Lightmapping of impostors is not recommended, experimental uses are possible using Amplify Shader Editor; please examine our docs for details Official Wiki.

Oculus Quest, and other Mobile-based VR devices are not officially supported.

HDRP Translucent objects may not bake correctly, known issue in progress.

1-CLICK CREATOR optimize your projects with ease by using next-generation Billboard Impostors.

IMPOSTORS are camera facing quads, or simple polygonal shapes, that replace complex geometry by rendering a fake 3D representation of the original object.

FLEXIBLE impostors can be moved, rotated, scaled, receive and cast shadows, intersect other objects or impostors, and can be used with LODGroup or any third-party LOD system.

MODERN technology making full use of GPU-based instancing. Providing Spherical and Octahedron Impostor techniques, the latter being capable of performing smart transitions between different views.
