The plugin includes:

  • Component that renders displacement and gradient (normal) maps in real time
  • Sample content, including water shader and grid meshes to be used on scene
  • Set of global shaders that perform FFT calculation and other tech stuff on GPU

Check the Wiki tab to know more about the plugin.
