Teaming up with Resonai, Unity have released a new Visual Search add-on for their popular game engine. Powered by machine learning, AI and other buzzwords, Visual Search has indexed the massive database of content in the Unity asset store. This enables you to search the asset store from directly within Unity, and filter on price, materials and polygon counts. You can also search by shape, using a primitive shape sketched with ProBuilder, enabling you to block in shapes, then replace them with similar models from the asset store later. Once you have located a model you wish to sample, you can preview it directly in your scene.
Highlighted features for the plugin from the Unity Store:
✔ Visual search for 3D assets
✔ Search by text, objects or 3D sketch
✔ Intuitive and inspiring similarity search
✔ Rapid prototyping
✔ Easy access to a vast dataset of content
✔ Preview assets before buying
✔ Polygon count, material and price search
