The Fisheye image effect creates distorts the image as if viewed through a fisheye lens (although any lens will distort the image to some extent).

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.

Fisheye distorts the image at its corners. The use of image antialiasing techniques is highly recommended because of sampling artefacts.


Strength XThe horizontal distortion.
Strength YThe vertical distortion.
