Tutorial:

In this tutorial we are going to see how to make this cute little goldfish move around with Shader Graph.

It can be quite useful for someone who doesn’t want to rig a fish, bird or other life form and just wants give it some quick life.

Cheers!

Good shader! Have you seen the talk from ABZU tech art? They’ve shown some cool fish animation using a vertex shader as well. I tried to reproduce it Unity, here’s my result: https://twitter.com/cayou66/status/970090866332315648?s=20
It’s basically multiple sinus along different axes with different timings and with different masks.

Yep I saw some bits of that talk, great showcase actually.

Your end result is pretty cool man, nice wiggle :slightly_smiling_face:
