[CANVAS] Amiga Laser Blit Effect

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Nov 22, 2013 10:30 am

Well i'm trying to replicate some oldschool amiga effects and while i got the basics working for the laser blit / stretch effect it isn't 100% how it should be (and kinda slow)

What i'm trying to replicate is the effect used for example in the title sequence and highscore of project x:

what i have so far is this:

Looks close but not 100% and i guess there is an easier / better way to achieve this effect... maybe @R0j0hound could take a look? or anyone else that's good with the canvas plugin (haven't tried paster for this yet!)Ize2013-11-22 10:32:21

You could just use a canvas that's only 1 pixel high, paste to that and then stretch it to the bottom of the screen.

Ex.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5426011/examples20/laser_blit_paster.capx

The events look pretty much identical from canvas to paster.
