Script - Animated Rainbow Shader

Uploaded by CryCry 1517583739 ago



You do not need anything else than what's included inside this Package for this to work!

This contains 1x Folder named "Shared" & 1x "Rainbow.shader" file
which will be extracted to your Assets folder.

This is just a simple but still very flexible tool to mess around with.


Make sure your Unity version is "Unity 5.6.3p1"

Make a Project with SDK for vrchat installed,

then launch the installer and import all the files contained inside the package
and you will be all good to use it after you done so.


It's very simple and user friendly.

You start of by selecting a material, let's say a hat or glasses that a Avatar is wearing.
then you see the top option which says "Shader"
which is going to be set to "Standard" by default.

Click it & change it to the second bottom option which says "_Shaders"
which inside that contains the shader name "Rainbow"

Once you select it you will see 5 Different sliders:

Then click the play button to see how it looks.


Leave a comment what you think of the Shader.
also be sure to upvote or downvote it.

Thank you for checking out my Shader!

Banned Lucasgintoki for not noticing usage of full-color rainbow instead of 6 color based.

I have never touched Unity in the past, but my first experience was with his Defalt model, and I toyed around with the rainbow script. It's very simplistic to edit which is amazing for clueless people such as myself. This Is something that's great and I hope you make more!

@CryCry how do you change the spread and speed, i see the equation 5,0,10,0=3,8 but i dont know how to change it properly for it to work

All you have to do is run the Package once while you got your Unity open,
extract everything contained in the package.
Then just go to a object with a texture/clothing that's up to you.
Click on it then select the tab where it says "shader" then
scroll all the way to the bottom where it says "_Rainbow"
Inside of that there's another option named just "Rainbow" click that then
you got the shader applied for just that texture.
Then you will have a few sliders to mess around with to fit your style.

Don't forget to click play to see how it looks like in real time!

I don't understand how to use the shader, or what to click for it.

@Hoody tm
What i usually do to get that sort of effect, is that i ramp up the "Spread"
also lower the "Speed" to make it look like the colour changes slower.
I usually find it suiting at 10 Spread & 1 Speed.

Well use the installer on a project which you want to use Rainbow Shaders on.
There's a "Installation" & "How to use" in the text above the comment section.
Or you can google it cause there're other people who have made this script as well.
