The Vignetting image effect creates darkened, blurred or color shifted (chromatic aberration) image outlines. This is usually simulating common camera lens effects but can also be used as for dynamic special effects.

Example for Vignetting. Notice how the screen corners get darker, more blurry and have shifted color offsets.

As with the other image effects, this effect is only available in Unity Pro. Make sure to have the Pro Standard Assets installed.


IntensityThe intensity of the applied vignette that is effectively darkening the screen corners.
Chromatic AberrationThe intensity of the used chromatic aberration. Choose 0.0 to disable chromatic aberration entirely.
BlurThe amount of blur that is added to the screen corners.
Blur SpreadThe blur width used when Blur is added.
