The VCC version of Poiyomi Shaders will automatically replace any existing copy of the _PoiyomiShaders folder in your Project's Assets in favor of the VCC Version, if it exists. Keep this in mind if you have any other versions, such as the Pro version, in your Project.

Poiyomi Pro

The Pro version of the shader (also known as Poiyomi Pro) is a Paid Version of the shader, available as a subscription model for $10/month on Patreon.

Pro Shader is only available exclusively through Discord

In order to download Poiyomi Pro, you must:

  1. Subscribe to the Poiyomi Patreon for $10/month USD.
  2. Link your Patreon Account to your Discord Account.
  3. Join the Poiyomi Discord Server in order to gain access to the #paid-shader channel, where you can then download it. Only Pro Versions of the Shader will be offered through Discord, and will never be distributed from anywhere else.

As a reminder, the Pro Shader only includes extra features. Therefore, it is not required if you are trying to access features already available in the Free version.

Incompatible with VCC Repo

As Poiyomi Pro is exclusive to Discord, it is incompatible with the VCC Version of Poiyomi Toon.

You must uninstall Poiyomi Toon from the VCC prior to importing Poiyomi Pro!
