    V-Fog Volumetric Fog Shapes Now on Asset Store
    Requires Unity Pro 3.4
    - Create volumetric fog areas from any convex mesh.
    - Adjust falloff using simple gradient textures
    - Low pass rendering to reduce fillrate
    - Fully integrated into the Unity Editor
    - Great when mixed with particle effects

    Low introductory price of 35$

    Web player demos

    Screenshots have been compressed so there is some color banding.

    Hmm.... Your demos don't seem to work on my Macbook Pro running OS X 10.6.8 and Chrome.

    Yeah it's Unity 3.5 beta bug. Becoming the bane of my existence. Will update with a new version.

    Neat idea. I could see it now, using toruses on mountain peaks, Skyrim style :)

    Gave it another test and although the volumetric fog seems to work, it's showing weird white outline artifacts on my machine (Macbook Pro, ATI x1600 graphics, OS X 10.6.8, tested with both Chrome and Firefox).

    Those problems should be fixed in the next version I just submitted to the Asset Store. Unity 3.5 is now supported also. The demos should now work in webplayer 3.4 and 3.5.

    I can confirm that the white artifacts I was see are now gone. :)

    Looks great -- is it viable for mobile?

    Working on a game for a low-end device, does this require additional camera passes/render textures, or were you able to do it with some clever shader passes?
