Linear Stretch Effect & lava engine

Hey everyone!

I made a lava engine using metaballs. I think it's pretty effective.



I also needed a filter that would stretch the top of the screen, to reinforce the sense of the lava stretching and flowing. So I messed around in the Stretch effect, eliminated the X axis stretching and gave the Y axis stretching a parameter so you can control its Y position.



Here's the online demo for the lava engine. Just left click and hold, to pour lava anywhere. Right mouse button erases ground tiles.

Here is the effect

Here is the CAPX (requires effect above)

And here is a livedemo and the CAPX of just the effect itself. All it does is create a fixed size linear displacement.

This could be a very nice game mechanic, maybe a boss fight, maybe something even more core gamplay... That's awesome!
@christina it seems it also need an effect called threshold, could you supply a link as well?Windwalker2013-12-27 17:00:49

This looks really cool, but unfortunately I can't open the project, as its missing the _Threshold effect. Does anyone know where that effect can be found?

Oddly, it's not either of those. The one linked in the first post is a linear stretch, and the one you linked is a (great) alpha thresholding shader.

The _Threshold effect seems to be something else, but I haven't been able to find it through search.

Sorry people! The threshold effect is essentially the same as the alpha threshold effect, I just like its look a lot more.

I have no idea where I found it, if anyone does, please let me know.
Here's my copy of it: threshold effect
