Automatic LOD is a powerful Unity extension that allows you to quickly generate and manage multiple levels of detail for your 3D models.
LOD levels are simplified meshes that are generated procedurally by the extension and help optimize your game especially on lower end platforms.
Besides the generation process, the Automatic LOD component also takes care during the game of enabling the correct mesh for each object depending on its distance to the camera or its screen area covered. This way you can use meshes with lower polygon count when the object is far away or covers small screen space and higher polygon count for up-close views.
