Amplify Shader Editor
Best Shader Editor Tool
This asset is amazing and it's well documented so easy to learn.
Many ask why spend so much money on a shader editor? First, programming shaders aren't easy, I have tried it but it's just too hardcore for me and it takes a lot of time and practice to master and even optimize your own handwritten shaders. With Amplify Shader Editor you'll be able to create your own shaders in no time. Just follow a couple of tutorials on their youtube page and you'll be ready to start making your own.
You can also think to your self, well why should I not just go and buy the shaders on the asset store that I need? Well on short terms that may look like the best solution but then again, you won't be able to edit them because you probably don't understand that much of programming shaders like I do. And also, you're spending money on shaders and in the long run, you'll spend more money on those shaders that you'd start to think that you probably should have bought this asset because you would have been able to create them in no time anyway.
Their tech support is top notch as well as their community forums. The tool has saved me hours of time since I already have previous knowledge of using a shader graph like Shaderforge. The ability to create Functions is so damn useful as well. Allows you to cut down on redundancy if you recycle a lot of math in your networks.
This tool is being updated constantly by the developers and they are really passionate about what I have seen. I certainly expect a lot more awesome features in the future.
