I was planning on purchasing Unity Pro to use glow effects for iPhone on a game I am creating that uses Tron like visuals with sci-fi glow on the gameObjects.
I have just realized whilst changing the Graphics emulation settings, that ES1.1 does not support this effect at all and after reading this post: http://answers.unity3d.com/questions/26246/glow-and-bloom-effects-on-iphone I am wondering if these effects will be usable at all due to performance, even on the latest iOS devices?
Unity is my first hands on programming with 3d, so my knowledge of shaders and materials is limited at the moment, however I am keen to learn what I can achieve with them. Perhaps this effect can be faked without the need for post processing for example. Can anyone give me some advice on how to best make glows on 3d objects for mobile devices?
Thanks in advance,
