GIF Effect

Share your Construct 2 effect files

Can anybody create effect that makes particular object or entire screen look like a gif? I mean, gif pictures have only 256 colors maximum, with this everything looks noisy but bright and clean. I tried noise effect in my game but it looks a bit dirty.

I'm not a Construct 2 user, just happened to look around here, but maybe I can help.

Do you mean dithering (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6d/Dithering_example_dithered_web_palette.png)?

I bet the easiest way to create this would be to just create a dithered sprite, for example by exporting a GIF with dithering in a graphics editor like Photoshop.

That kind of effect can be achieved with a Posterize shader.

Just a quick addition: Dithering is something that works AGAINST posterization. ;) So they are actually quite the opposite.
