[SUGGESTION] Pixel Distorsion Effect

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Jul 21, 2012 10:18 pm

Hey all.

I'm sure you remember about pixel distorsion on SNES that it made us wow.
It's possible to do with HTML5 using "Get Image Data"


I would like that we may add effects for sprites.

I don't see it's required for WebGL, but it may improve the peformance if is needed.


Look this sample:

Sweet effects. If you played Rocket Knight Adventure on the sega genesis, it used the Reflection effect in the lava stage. Also many games used the Mirage effect aswell. Although its not present in that demo.

I spent a worrying amount of time using the sphere one...

Great effects though!

That's really cool, actually! I can imagine a handful of things I'd like to use it for already. Hopefully it makes it another Construct someday, you've got my support.

All of this will be possible with WebGL shaders that are probably coming on the next release. Just wait a little more until the feature is implemented an ironed out.

I guess it will not be much difficult to create custom shaders, so expect lots of effects once the feature gets enough time to mature.

@Joannesalfa : when that blog post was out, in february, I was thinking about adding the effect to the image effect plugins. I started the integration, but it's not finished, since I'm forced to work on other things.
The idea is to use that kind of things on platforms were WebGL isn't available.
I'll release it as soon as possible.

I haven't noticed your idea, so it would be awesome if you did.

Also notice i wasn't talking about "plugin" and "behavior", it's just "effects" where you can use XOR, Destination In, Destination Out, etc.

I'm not sure if is possible, if not, then behavior Joannesalfa2012-07-25 23:10:52
