    Yeah I agree, that would not be worth the effort :)
    Will your asset come with source so we can try and find a workaround ourselves?

    How's it done? If not rasterized or colored meshes, how's it get from vector to unity? I like the appearance I'm just hung up on how it is implemented. Does it use some shader techniques to color meshes?

    It is hybrid. It uses mesh for the shape and extremely small lookup texture for gradients. So the shader is simple and the gradients look correct.

    Today I managed to get SVG Importer to work on Unity 4.6.0f3 which I think is pretty neat.
    Only problem I have are stupid warnings like "Shader wants texture coordinates, but the mesh Instance -89774 doesn't have them" which are not fired in Unity 5...

    Bookmarked. Can't wait to try it. I hope it will make Unity GUI become a vector-based GUI, as good as Noesis.

    The Unity UI,
    I personally recommend using simple shapes.
    Unity UI Canvas has total vertex count limit about 60 thousand vertices.
    So, for every complex illustration you would need a separate canvas.

    Hi, everyone! Yesterday I recorded a video about how to install SVG Importer into Unity and I explained some basic stuff when working with the importer.

    Very happy to be one of the early Beta testers for SVG Importer, going to be putting it through it's paces and hopefully be able to give some good feedback on it's reliability and stability while testing it with a plethora of different content.

    Mainly interested in achieving full compability to Unity UI - especially sliced images. This would come in very handy.

    We are going to develop a new game and a tool like that would be so powerful with it. I think we will use it a lot, so we can do a lot of "debug" for you
