I'm glad to announce that I2 SmartEdge is now available in the AssetStore!

It allows rendering PIXEL PERFECT texts at any Size while also ANIMATING each of the characters in a text to create beautiful transitions and add emphasis to buttons and other UI elements.
SmartEdge also allows DEFORMING a text to follow any curve and contour.

   
The strongest point of the plugin, is the usage of SDF and Multi-Channel Signal Distance Fields to not only render pixel perfect texts and effects but also preserve sharp corners and straight lines!
(No more blurriness when scaling the Texts!)



SmartEdge integrates with Unity UI and NGUI out of the box. So, it can be used to increase the visual quality of your project without having to do heavy modifications.
Just click to patch NGUI, create an SDF or MSDF font and add the SmartEdge component to your labels!

Here is a demo of the plugin in action: WebGL DEMO     
   
More details about its features: Documentation
   
Roadmap of future features: Trello Roadmap (vote for the things you want!)
   

And here is a video showing some I2 SmartEdge features!!   VIDEO

I2 SmartEdge integrates with NGUI and expands it to get your UI exactly as you like it!
Now making something awesome is just a click away!


Available now in the AssetStore!

I2 SmartEdge is ALL about giving the artist tools to accomplish their vision!
That's why, every single effect, animation, text modification, etc, has TONS of settings to really dig deep and let you explore!

Here is one of those examples: GLOW!



And if you think that this effect is complicated to make, think again!

     See here a Making-of that effect: Link to MakingOfLetItGO

Can you imagine, making your game's Tile pop with cool effects like that?
And HEY!!! I'm just a programmer, imagine what YOUR art skills can do!
