I've just upgraded to Unity 5.6 from 5.4. I need to add some Sun Shafts to my camera but I cannot find the script anywhere.

I've looked in the docs, I've looked in the menu's but I can't locate them.

Has anyone else had this problem at all?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Have you installed Standard Assets Effects package again after upgrading to 5.6? docs.unity3d.com/560/Documentation/Manual/… It also notes on the page that: "A newer version might make your project look or behave differently and you may need to re-tweak its parameters. Check the package contents and Unity’s release notes before you decide to re-install." \$\endgroup\$ – John Hamilton Apr 14 '17 at 5:30

    \$\begingroup\$ Yeah I've done a clean install, it's not there @JohnHamilton from what I can see. Can't find how I would add the Sun Shafts at all. \$\endgroup\$ – Andy Holmes Apr 14 '17 at 12:47

Okay, this answer will be a bit short but I've found out what happened to your sun shafts and how you can get the new effects to replace them.

It seems Image Effects (which include Sun Shafts) are no longer a thing in Unity's 5.6 version. They now have post-processing instead and you can get the package for that from their asset store link.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Awesome, cheers John, looks to be what I'm looking for :) \$\endgroup\$ – Andy Holmes Apr 14 '17 at 13:52

The original SunShafts scripts can be found from unity's asset store(from their own page). It's titled "Legacy Image Effects".


you will find then at the lights gameobject... after select yours look at the inspector.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm afraid I'm non the wiser, are you able to show screenshots? \$\endgroup\$ – Andy Holmes Apr 13 '17 at 20:03
