You can change the overall style of a game, including role style in the game. For example, you can change the overall style to Pixel or Sketch.
You can change the color tone of the whole scene. For example, after you select the Filter 1, the scene image will completely turn to the black-and-white tone.
Bloom can simulate the floodlight effect in the project as you observe bright objects with naked eyes in the real world, making the project vivid. The Bloom Strength option can be used to adjust the intensity of the floodlight and the Decay Range option can be used to adjust the degree of the floodlight decaying when a unit goes towards the light source. During the development, you can try different values to obtain the best visual effect.
You can set vignetting parameters to darken the corners of the scene, thus creating an atmosphere of tension, thrill, suspense, and mystery.
Skybox is a cube that covers the whole game scene, defining the spatial background except the ground.

During design, you can add Fog to make the scene more real. Fog will come out when the camera height is higher than the Minimum Height you set for fog. When the camera goes higher, the fog gets denser.
Color: used to adjust the color of fog.
Fog Density: used to adjust the fog density. Your vision will be more blurred when the Fog Density is higher.
Minimum Height: There is no fog where the height is smaller than this value.
Falloff Speed: the falloff speed of the fog when the game role walks into the fog.
Fog of War involves two parts:Gray Layer and Unexplored Layer.
Gray Layer indicates the vision that had been obtained but is lost now. A game player can only obtain the vision of the place where there is no less than one of his/her teammates. You can set the Color, Density, Distortion, and Distortion Strength of the Gray Layer.
Distortion indicates that the Gray Layer has an effect similar to flame burning, which can bring the experience of visual distortion to players, as shown below.
Unexplored Layer appears where a game player and his/her teammates have never been. You can set the Color,Density, and Falloff Speed of the Unexplored Layer.

You can define whether to Enable Cascaded Shadow. When disenable, you can set the Shadow Distance between layers; when enable,you can set the number of Cascades and Cascaded Shadow Distance between layers.

Note: Cascaded Shadow is only effective for directional light. The more Cascades is set, the less perspective aliasing on shadows is, while the more rendering overhead of the computer will be caused.
