Some of the new features in 2019.2 beta

Be among the first to see what Unity has in store for you in the next 2019 TECH stream release. In this beta, we’ve integrated the popular Polybrush tool into Unity, added the Unity Distribution Platform to get your games to new global audiences, improved and expanded the toolsets for mobile, lighting, 2D, XR, and many other areas.

  • Mobile performance and tooling improvements
  • Support for the Intel Open Image Denoise library
  • Probe-Lit GI Contributors
  • GPU Lightmapper improvements
  • TypeCache API in Editor code
  • HDRP for VR (Preview)
  • New 2D features in LWRP and Shader Graph

And much more

Mobile performance and tooling improvements

2019.2b comes with various smaller and bigger improvements for mobile developers.

  • Optimized Frame Pacing for Android, developed in partnership with Google’s Android Gaming and Graphics team, provides consistent frame rates by enabling frames to be distributed with less variance.
  • OpenGL multithreading support (iOS) to improve performance on low-end iOS devices that don’t support Metal (approx 25% of iOS devices that run Unity games).
  • OpenGL support for SRP batcher (iOS and Android) to improve CPU performance in projects that use the Lightweight Render Pipeline (LWRP).
  • Screen brightness controls via the new Screen.brightness property (iOS and Android).
  • Display cutout bounding box support (Android) for detecting the bounding box around the notch(es) on Android via the new Screen.cutouts property.

Support for the Intel Open Image Denoise library

This cross-platform library is a deep-learning-based denoising filter. In Unity, it will improve your lightmapping workflow and lightmap quality by post-processing lightmaps using Intel’s recently released AI denoiser. This produces smooth, noise-free lightmaps that use far fewer samples. For details, watch our Unity GDC 2019 talk on the subject.

Probe-Lit GI Contributors

We have changed the terminology for objects that are Lightmap Static, which from now on will Contribute GI instead. You may choose if objects that Contribute GI should receive GI from Light Probes or lightmaps. A new drop-down menu on mesh renderers, skinned mesh renderers, and terrains lets you choose if the object should get GI from lightmaps or from Light Probes.

GPU Lightmapper improvements

In 2019.2, the GPU Lightmapper (Preview) takes some important steps towards feature parity with the CPU Lightmapper. The GPU Lightmapper now has:

  • Multiple Importance Sampling support for environment lighting.
  • Support for NVIDIA Optix denoising.
  • Increased sampling performance when using view prioritization or small/low occupancy lightmaps.

TypeCache API in Editor code

TypeCache provides a fast way to access types or methods marked with specific attributes and types derived from a specific type or interface. It utilizes an internal native cache that is built for all assemblies loaded by the Editor. Access this feature via the new UnityEditor.TypeCache C# API.

HDRP for VR (Preview)

The High-Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP) is a prebuilt, high-fidelity Scriptable Render Pipeline designed for projects running on compute-shader-compatible platforms. By design, HDRP provides you with tools to create anything from games to technical demos at the highest resolution. In this release, we now have HDRP for your VR projects in preview. HDRP for VR targets high-end PCs and lets you deliver stunning visuals and maximum performance.

New 2D features in LWRP and Shader Graph

Soon after the initial 2019.2b release, the Lightweight Render Pipeline (LWRP) will be updated with the experimental 2D Renderer, which contains 2D Pixel Perfect and the new 2D Lights. Additionally, Shader Graph now has 2D Masternodes to create 2D Unlit and Lit sprite shaders.

What to expect from a beta

As with any beta program, you’ll have early access to new features and will be able to assist in the final steps of their development. That means you’re likely to experience Unity as less stable than a final version.

The beta phase begins once all scheduled major features have been included and a quality baseline has been established. Several beta versions will be made available during this phase and quality will improve with each iteration.
