Tenkoku Fog and Water
« on: May 11, 2019, 09:54:46 AM »
Could you please tell me how I can edit Tenkoku Fog shader or script so the water is displayed behind the fog?
I use Lux Water that supports both Enviro and AzureSky fog, and I got the following answer from their support:
"Tenkoku should ship with a fog function for transparent shaders like particles, glas or billboards.
if so you would have to call that function at the end of the water shader (core file) - just where it calls the other fog functions right now."

So in LuxWater shader I can see
Code: [Select]
// Fog Mode
#include "Includes/LuxWater_Setup.cginc"

Then in cginc file I set
Code: [Select]
//  Azure Fog ---------------------------
// #define FOG_AZUR
// #include "Assets/Azure[Sky] Dynamic Skybox/Shaders/Transparent/AzureFogCore.cginc"
//  Tenkoku Fog ---------------------------
#include "Assets/ --- *** "

*** - here I need to put the path to Tenkoku cginc Fog function.

Example - AzureSky uses the following function in AzureFogCore.cginc:
Code: [Select]
float4 ApplyAzureFog (float4 fragOutput, float3 worldPos)
float3 fogScatteringColor = 0;
float3 fogScatteringColor = AzureComputeFogScattering(worldPos);

// Calcule Standard Fog.
float depth = distance(_WorldSpaceCameraPos, worldPos);
float fog = smoothstep(-_Azure_FogBlend, 1.25, depth / _Azure_FogDistance) * _Azure_FogDensity;
float heightFogDistance = smoothstep(-_Azure_HeightFogBlend, 1.25, depth / _Azure_HeightFogDistance);

// Calcule Height Fog.
float3 worldSpaceDirection = mul((float3x3)_Azure_UpMatrix,;
float heightFog = saturate((worldSpaceDirection.y - _Azure_HeightFogStart) / (_Azure_HeightFogEnd + _Azure_HeightFogStart));
heightFog = 1.0 - heightFog;
heightFog *= heightFog;
heightFog *= heightFogDistance;
float fogFactor = saturate(fog + heightFog * _Azure_HeightFogDensity);

// Apply Fog.
fragOutput.a = lerp(fragOutput.a, 1.0, fogFactor);
fogScatteringColor = lerp(fragOutput.rgb, fogScatteringColor, fogFactor * lerp(fragOutput.a, 1.0, 2.0 - fogFactor));
return float4(fogScatteringColor, fragOutput.a);

it is called from LuxWaterCore.cginc:
Code: [Select]
#elif defined(FOG_AZUR)
            if (!backside){
                c = ApplyAzureFog( float4(c.rgb, 1), float4(i.grabUV.xy, surfaceEyeDepth, i.grabUV.w), worldPos);

I can add the condition for Tenkoku Fog too, but I can't see such cginc files in your system.
Could you help me please?
Thank you.

Hi Rostik1975,
Thanks for the example code.  Currently Tenkoku does not have fog code access such as you're showing in these examples.  However there is probably a similar solution that can be obtained, let me dig around a bit and I'll get back to you.
