Unity3D ComputeShader Example

So I’ve been messing around with compute shaders in Unity3D for the past day and I thought I’d share some code to maybe help others get started. Unfortunately the documentation for this capability is abysmal, so there’s a few simple things worth noting to get it up and running. This is a DirectX 11 only capability so you’ll need to be building for windows if you want to get anything out of this.

It is of course not nearly as interesting as a screenshot.
