    Our good friends at RUST LTD released Alloy 2.0, one of the best Physically Based Shading Frameworks available for Unity3d. We would like to invite all our users to try their technology.

    We are very happy to announce that Amplify Texture 2 will natively support Alloy 2 and other select 3rd party frameworks. Taking advantage of cutting-edge frameworks such as Alloy will be extremely easy, in most cases as simple as selecting a Virtual Texture preset.

    A new Alloy demo is also available, click the image below to forge your own blade:

    A quick reminder, Amplify Texture 2 is currently exclusively available for Pre-Order in our website. With every Pre-Order, not only will you gain access to the upcoming private development builds you will also receive Amplify Texture 1.5.

    We are happy to announce a new Amplify Texture 2 update. Among other additions and fixes, we finally resolved an elusive DLL issue that prevented AT2 from executing correctly in Unity 5.

    Alpha 33 features complete Unity 5 support, including both metallic and specular universal shader and real-time GI support, Oculus Rift support, SLI/CrossFire support, EXR 2.0 support, Multiple camera support, solid/seamless anisotropic filtering and fixed texture addressing issues across the board specifically involving multi-VT support.

    Most importantly, the full version now includes the FULL SOURCE CODE for all managed code/scripts and all major known issues in previous builds have also been addressed.

    We also simplified our EULA to reflect the standard Unity Asset Store license. The only major difference is that each Pre-Order provides you with a 3-Seat License, unlike the Unity Asset Store 1-Seat Editor Extension terms.

    Try it today, without limitations or complicated licensing plans.
