Skybox Shader Brief Overview

The Gradient Skybox shader is a modified version of the Flat Kit’s Gradient Skybox shader. Instead of two colors that you pick in two color choosers to form a gradient in the skybox, the Quibli version has a single Gradient Editor with a continuous color ramp. It means that you can have up to 8 independent color stops in the skybox with varying transition smoothness.

  • Intensity Defines how strong (or bright) the skybox is.
  • Exponent A bias towards either of the ends of the Gradient.

TIP. You can animate the Exponent parameter for adding transition effects.

  • Direction X Angle Rotation in on the X axis (Pitch).
  • Direction Y Angle Rotation in on the Y axis (Yaw).
