This guide describes the features of the Sci-Fi Effects for Unity 2018+. A basic understanding of the Unity engine, as well as C# programming language is assumed. Having basic knowledge of the shader and visual effects design in Unity may be advantageous.
Example scenes provided within the package utilize some of the prefabs and demonstrate usage of these effects while all scripts are self explanatory and well documented.

In LWRP/URP the Heat/Refraction shader requires enabling Depth and Opaque textures
Tested with Unity 2018.4.34f1, Unity 2019.4.25f1, Unity 2020.3.5f1, Unity 2021.1.4f1
After importing the Sci-Fi Effect for URP in Unity 2020, 2021 all Universal Renderer Pipeline/Particles/Unlit materials ignore transparency and become filled with fog color. It's a bug in the URP starting with 10.4.0 affecting some of the default Unity shaders. As a quick workaround you can disable fog in Window/Rendering/Lighting Settings/Environment -> Fog or replace the shader in the material with FORGE3D/Additive as a temporary solution.
