I just wanted to let you know we're working on updates for both Shader Secrets and VFX Secrets.
For shader secrets, in the next release, you should get:
- The 3D advanced toon shader, our most advanced series with deferred rendering and a custom light model
- 3D animated force-field (sci-fi shield effect)
- Procedural 2D cloud shadows
- Gradient mapping primer
And some more. This will be the 1.0 release, taking the course out of early access.
In VFX Secrets:
- Johnny is working on lightning, with a chained lighting spell.
- Pigdev is going to write a follow-up to the ghost effect showing how to achieve one as in 2D Castlevania games.
