Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Paper2D - Change sprite color to black and white

I think the question is self explanatory but i wanted to know how can you change the color of a sprite to it's black and white part? Should this be using the material of the sprite or using a post-process?

My main goal for this is to make the whole world black and white except for dangerous stuff and the character itself.

EDIT: I would also like a link to the theory behind converting colors to black and white, if you know one of course.

Hey DylanVelez -

Probably the way you would want to handle this in the Sprite's Material setup by plugging your texture into the Desaturation node for everything but your character and "dangerous" stuff. If there is a sprite which has both you can create a mask during texture creation and use that to color one section and desaturate the other.

As far as Color Theory goes, you will want to spend some time looking into Hue, Saturation, and Value (HSV)

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
