Material Instancing


Recommended Posts

It's like creating "instances" of a material which might have different properties.

For example there is Material A which has emissiveColor of Blue and Material B is an instance of Material A that has an emissiveColor of Red. But of course since Material B is an instance of Material A, applying diffuseColor to Material A will influence Material B as well, but Material B can have its own properties set for diffuseColor.

Basically the whole idea is to have instances of materials in the scene which have different properties set to them making scene look really colorful while keeping the number of drawCalls same.

I mean I don't even know whether it's possible in theory or not, maybe I went full mad scientist here sigh :)
