Canvas and Snapshot

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Jun 01, 2013 5:29 pm

As using Canvas plugin for lighting is too performance heavy, I'm trying to find a way of using it to render out the shadows, so then I can use Snapshot Canvas to take the shadows out.
(I then will reimport them as a single sprite with a multiply blending option to give me shadows.)

The problem I am facing, is that my layout size is rather large, and my window size is far too small.
(scaling layout is not an option because I need the raw shadow data)
So snapshot canvas is taking tiny images of the size of my window size.
Is there a way I can make snapshot canvas, take the whole layout as a single image? Even without the window showing the whole scene?

I know I could take tiny snapshots and stitch them together, but that process is imprecise, and time consuming, bearing in mind I intend to do this with all 40+ levels.

Cheers in advance
