i've got zero programing skills and even less bout shaders but i found that software accidentally,
would it be possible to use "ShaderFX" for construct shaders?
They say it can compile to hlsl, but looking at a screenshots they all are for 3d.
Is there a big diffrence between shaders for 2d and 3d?
just asking out of curiosity.

Yeah, there's a big difference, so I doubt you can use any shader editing programs. Construct has a lot of unique parameters and generally none of the matrices you'd use in 3D. Shaders are usually very short and fairly easy to write anyway - check out the sources to a few of them in the Effects directory to get a feel for it.

i saw the files from the Effects directory and compare them to *.fx files from "shaderfx", and they are quite diffrent. oh well time to open notepad :wink:
