Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding effects, part of Unity 5: UI.
- Let's look into adding effects to our component.…With the Text component selected,…let's press the Add Component button, go into the UI folder,…and go into Effects.…These are all the effects you have…that you an add to components.…We are going to focus on the Shadow and Outline…for this video.…Let's start with the Shadow effect.…Right now, it's a little hard to see.…Let's zoom in.…Let's go into the Shadow and change the Distance.…
We can make this three by negative three.…We can also change the color of the shadow.…Right now, it's black with a 50% alpha,…and we can continue to change the effect distance…or the direction we want the shadow by changing the numbers.…If we were to make this three negative and this Y positive,…it would show up in the upper left-hand side.…Let's remove the shadow and add the next effect.…
Here we're going to use an outline.…The outline is very similar to the shadow,…except it's going to draw an outline…around all the characters.…In this case, let's set it to three by three.…Here you can see we now have a nice black outline…
