So, if you want to become an expert in building interactive user interfaces with Unity and Canvas, then you should surely go for this Learning Path.

Packt’s Video Learning Path is a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.

The highlights of this Learning Path are

● Learn to build the gaming interface by adding basic elements to Canvas

● Animate Canvas elements and develop reusable UIs to cut down on development

● Create responsive UI for different resolutions and platforms by using the new video component offered by Unity 5.6

Let’s take a quick look at your learning journey. This Learning Path starts off by diving deep into the entire Unity UI system. You will then walk through the core components and elements which will enable you to build exciting games using Unity. You will also understand how unity’s components and elements interact with each other.

Next, you will explore animating a Canvas. You will learn how to create reusable UI elements. You will also learn to design a game in Unity that will run on multiple devices. Finally, you will learn UI editing and scripting.

By the end of this Learning Path, you will have a strong understanding of how the UI system works as a whole.
