Have a look at a video guide by Kevin Leroy that explains the creation of an Aurora Borealis effect in Unity from scratch with the help of Shader Forge. This tutorial could be of use for you even if you lack VFX experience.

It’s a pretty long video, and the artist explains everything from scratch, so people with little to no experience in Unity, Maya, and Photoshop will find it pretty easy to recreate in the end.

Things you’ll learn:

  • Texture Packing
  • Vertex Offset
  • Texture Panning and Tiling
  • Post Process Basics

Want to learn more from the artist? A couple of years ago, the artist joined us to talk about the way he creates amazing visual effects in the style of League of Legends in Unity.

The interview features a number of useful tips which can help you set up AAA-quality effects. You can find the interview here. Don’t forget to discuss the tutorial in the comments.

    So using this tutorial I could create the Aurora Borealis at this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, localized entirely in Skinner's kitchen?
