When it comes to graphics, you need to be able to push your visuals and have the control to be able to decide what matters to you most. That’s why we created the Graphics sessions for Unite Now, our digital programming series of inspiring talks, demos, Q&As and stories – to level up your Unity skills and knowledge.
In this blog, we rounded up Unite Now sessions, demos, projects, and other resources to help you take your graphics to the next level. Dive into sessions and demo projects available for the Universal Render Pipeline (URP), High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP), VFX Graph, Lighting, Unity’s short film - The Heretic, and more.
Unite Now Session and demo projects for the High-Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP)
Delivers state-of-the-art graphics on high-end platforms and is best to use if your goal is more targeted – pushing graphics on high-end hardware, delivering performant powerful high-fidelity visuals.
Achieving High Fidelity Graphics for games with the HDRP
Artists, designers, or engineers, can use this tutorial to learn how to get the most out of HDRP, which is purpose-built for creating AAA-quality visuals for current and next-gen games.

Visual Effect Graph - Building VFX in the Spaceship demo project
This session dives into the Spaceship Demo project to show how the team created and integrated visual effects, lighting and sound into Timeline sequences. You’ll also learn some cool scripting techniques to make the effects react to gameplay. The demo project can be downloaded here.
Supercharge CPU light baking speeds with Open Image Denoise
Depending on your scene’s complexity, light baking can take anything from minutes to days. By limiting the number of lighting passes you can make as you design a scene, creativity is stifled, preventing you from reaching the look you envisioned. In this session, Intel showcases how an integrated Open Image Denoise library allows you to leverage the post-processing stack, giving you high fidelity baked lighting with fewer samples, in faster time, all on the CPU.
