How Depth Texture Works

Depth Texture adds algorithmically-predicted depth to your effect. The Depth Texture asset is a black and white texture, where the resulting grayscale texture predicts a real-world object’s distance from the camera. For example, the darker the texture, the closer it is to the camera.

In this demo project, the R (red) values of Depth Texture is pulled to apply a blue strip between two estimated points. The darker the texture, or the lower the R value, the closer to the camera the blue strip will appear.
