Development of three-dimensional pupil shader.

Purpose of implementations.

  • One draw call rendering by one mesh.
  • Supporting customization of eyeball pupil.
  • Simple refraction FX.
Refer to desired result of eyeball.

我为美术提供的最终目标是Horizon Zero Dawn。

在实现过程中,我们合并了两个Draw-call,最大限度地降低了精度,消除了所有的GGX运算,只使用Normalized Blinn-Phong Specular实现。

ALU在处理折射时有所增加,但删除了依赖于PBR的某些部分,使得整体ALU比正常的PBR少了一些,实现了CustomUV,从而减少了Pixel Shader Stage计算的部分。

现在,我们使用Replection Cubemap来实现油膜的光泽度,而在下一个优化版本中,将更改为Dual Parabolic Reflection,以进一步优化它。

创作原型时,使用Amplify Shader Editor来实现了它。

实现了Eye Refraction function, Mode写为Create的话之后在代码中会以函数形式来记录。


An important part of my development of the pupils was to pinpoint exactly what the final requirements of the art team were.

The first two meshes were used by the art team voluntarily, but the two draw-calls were consumed and there was no refraction, so we simply discussed with the art team and then used two specular One is calculated from the position of the actual solar light source and the other is calculated from the point of view of the camera, that is, the camera point of view.

I also had to find the overall feeling of completeness, and my final goal for the art team was Horizon Zero Dawn.

In the implementation process, we merged two draw-calls into one, and we reduced the precision as much as possible, eliminated all GGX operations, and implemented only with Normalized Blinn-Phong Specular.

The ALU increased slightly when refracting, but by removing some of the PBR dependent parts, the overall ALU was reduced compared to the normal PBR, and the CustomUV implementation reduced some of the computation on the Pixel Shader Stage.Currently, the reflection cube map is used to realize the gloss of the retina. In the next optimized version, it will be changed to Dual Parabolic Reflection to optimize it further.

通常,Cube-Map reflection主要用于角色选择窗口。
在实际游戏中,通过仅选择视觉上不明显的部分来删除命令,并制作一个Shader for LOD MATERIAL。当前尽量不把Sub shader划分为多个。

It is a good idea to develop prototypes with simple textures so that the art team knows their implementation intent.

At this point, I discussed further with the art team to discuss how to improve the pupil lighting process and to continue to develop.

Normally Cube-Map reflection is only used in the character selection window.

In real gameplay, we’ll only remove parts that aren’t visually obvious and remove commands and create another shader for LOD MATERIAL.We are not dividing the currently available Sub shader into several.
