The Crease is a common non-photorealistic (NPR) rendering technique that enhances the visibility of objects by adding outlines of variable thickness.

As with the other image effects, this effect is only available in Unity Pro and you must have the Pro Standard Assets installed before it becomes available.

Crease shading creates depth based outlines.


IntensityThe intensity of the crease shading.
SoftnessThe smoothness and softness of the applied crease shading.
SpreadThe blur radius, which also determines the thickness of outlines.

Hardware support

This effect requires a graphics card with pixel shaders (2.0) or OpenGL ES 2.0. Additionally, depth texture support is required. PC: NVIDIA cards since 2004 (GeForce 6), AMD cards since 2004 (Radeon 9500), Intel cards since 2006 (GMA X3000); Mobile: OpenGL ES 2.0 with depth texture support; Consoles: Xbox 360, PS3.

All image effects automatically disable themselves when they can not run on end-users graphics card.
