Introducing Amplify Texture, the leading solution for Virtual Texturing in Unity

Amplify Texture is the leading solution for virtual texturing in Unity and the only one ready for commercial and reliable use. In short, Amplify Texture is Virtual Texturing for the masses, Drag & Drop integration.

Amplify Texture is the leading solution for virtual texturing in Unity and the only one ready for commercial and reliable use.

Our virtual texturing, aka mega-texture, technology allows real-time applications made with Unity to present scenes without any sort of texture limitations imposed by graphics cards memory limits.

Developers may utilise  massive amounts of textures, quite literally up to hundreds of gigabytes per scene, without worrying about the usual constraints.

It’s the ideal gateway into building beautiful, vast and highly detailed worlds. Accessible price, streamlined integration with unity, it adapts to your workflow and not the other way around.

In short, Amplify Texture is Virtual Texturing for the masses.

We strive for simplicity, innovation and efficiency. As with all our products, integrating Amplify Texture in a project is as easy as Drag & Drop. There is no need for dedicated UV channels and developers won't need to write a single line of code for a standard integration. We do however provide source licensing options to developers that wish to extend and experiment with the technology.


In essence, Amplify Texture frees developers from the usual workflow constraints. Forget 4k textures, crushing, reducing and optimizing textures. Amplify textures employs efficient variable bit-rate texture compression algorithms for its Virtual Textures with compression ratios above average when compared with normal DXT compression, resulting in smaller and high quality builds.

Fully functional solution.


  • Real-time WYSIWYG editing, completely integrated with Unity.
  • Tools for auto conversion of scenes/projects, virtual texture manager configuration and statistics directly accessible via the inspector tab.
  • No need to change your workflow, the only requirement is that developers use an Amplify Texture  compatible shader. We provide all Unity shaders already converted and you can easily convert your own to work with Amplify Texture.
  • Developers can still use other shaders, they will work as they always did, but the textures will not be managed by the virtual texturing technology.
  • The virtual texture build process is incrementally, updated as the user adds content.




  • Up to 512k x 512k pixel per Virtual Texture, 1 virtual texture per scene with up to 1TB of texture data. No texture size limits; it’s “a big texture” (512K) made of smaller ones of any size (e.g. 1K, 32K, 128K).
  • Direct control over video memory allocation.
  • Support per-material diffuse+coverage, normal and glossiness textures, without the usual size constraints and virtually supports an unlimited number textures. Textures may even be repeated/tiled with efficient filtering support, it even supports dynamic surfaces.
  • Works with both static and dynamic geometry, characters, vehicles, etc
  • Extremely efficient Multi-threaded parallel processing while maintaining a low memory footprint.
  • Windows, Mac and linux compatible.
  • Higher fidelity texturing with virtually unlimited texture quantities without compromising performance.
