Get help using Construct 2

@pode @rexrainbow I figured so much but I didn't know for sure. Thanks for all the work you have done in C2. I am creating an interactive transmedia music video, possibly using C2.

I too would like to be able to skew, mesh-warp, or corner-pin a sprite, and am wondering if this could be done with a WebGL plugin?

@matthornb : it can be done with WebGL or (more difficultly) with <canvas> and JS. I have a plugin nearly finished for that, the problem is that I didn't got the time to polished it since three months. When it's done, I'll publish it here.

Very interested to see this plugin. It would be a massively valuable tool - to be able to skew and distort sprites as well as background tiles and 9-patch items.

I'm currently struggling with a technique for creating naturalistic terrain using the current set of tools and am hitting a bit of a wall. Basically I'm forced to either use gigantic sprites that waste memory or overlay dozens of smaller sprites in a mishmash that uses up too much CPU. Neither approach is ideal, so anything that would allow me to bridge the gap would be worth a look.

If it were possible to create some sort of extended 9-patch, that would be warped to create variation along a large area, I think I'd be set. That and the ability to mask textures to arbitrary shapes rather than being restricted to rectangles.

Oh, and a ham sandwich... with a pickle.

I've been using the mode7 plugin on sprites to warp them a bit. Still needs work with the pseudo 3d engine though as getting the angles right is a bit tricky.

You can skew with the Paster plugin.
