@Smaadmin
I updated the plugin link with the fix. Using effects like distortion shouldn't cause an error but they may not work correctly. The issue is I never found a way to convert the coordinate parameters, used the distort effects, to be in relation to the paster object.

Have you read through any of this thread?

This is one of the most useful plugins ever created for C2, and the forum is full of excellent examples of it's usage, easily found via the search function.

@juicy
What would you like to do? The most basic thing you can do is draw other objects to it. To do that position the other object so it overlaps the paster object and use the "paste object" action.

Well, ahem.. it seems to work better if the paster is set to "visible" :oops: all is good, just got to get my head checked. Thanks none the less for the kind help.

An example of usage would be a kind of split screen effect:

I was wondering that instead of asking a million different questions on how to do this and that or going through dozens of pages at the forum, if there is some sort of manual in how to understand the plugin and how it works? Now that i got it to show up, im trying to make a scorched earth type of tank game that you could destroy the terrain. I found a capx file that uses the plugin "canvas" to achieve this but im thinking this is almost the same thing.. only i dont know how it works.

@Juicy

I think, rather than hijacking this thread (which is really about plugin development) it might be best if you now start a new post in the 'How Do I' section and frame a clear question of what you are trying to achieve.

This will allow many of the helpful users to chip in and hopefully guide you to where you want to be.

Will do. Didn't realize this was the wrong place to ask questions.
