Credits and a Little Instructional Guide

Hello,

I thought i d put up a quick little guide on how i achieved the effect of performing the ending credits within Kidnapped.

Firstly, i had to create some textures for the each screen that would be shown. These textures are saved as .pdf file so it maintains what i created within Photoshop. But as long as the texture contained an alpha channel, it would still work.

Some examples of the credit textures can be seen below:

In unity a material was created for each texture and then i went about setting up the scene.

The scene comprised on one camera, one cube and a directional light facing the cameras side of the cube.

I placed a few components on the cube: 2 AudioSources (one for the music and one for the impact sound as soon as the scene started). This cube also contained a script that i wrote that changed each material over a give time.

See below the screenshot of the scene in its final form.

The last thing to do was on the fade the final material’s alpha channel and any AudioSource’s that were playing so it gave the impression of complete end.

The scene took around 2 hours to complete from start to finish, and this was in-between making tea and other household chores. If you have any questions on how i completed this, or possibly help. Please use the comment section below. I am more than happy to help.
