With course of time programming and game designing has become easier, with the introduction of Unity as an alternative to other Game Creation System. Unity has come up with special features that make it beyond better than any other Game Engine. Its rendering, scripting, asset tracking, platforms, physics and many other features make it something unique and credible.
Here are few things you must know about to make your first game.
Use Sound to make 3D Geometry in Unity [check here]
To start with creating a new game, you can start with learning how to make a simple audio visualizer in Unity. This tutorial will help you go through the code that reads out audio data. It also helps you to apply the data’s inside a Unity game.
The tutorial deals with three subdivisions of Audio Visualizer i.e.; Line Visualizer, Bar Visualizer and Visualizing with 3D Scale. The tutorial helps you understand the Visualizers in a better way by giving simple and easy examples. Like in the third subdivision of Visualizing with 3D Scale, instead of adjusting the height of an object, it will show the visualization by scaling an entire object up and down making it simpler for the learner.
