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"

Distance from camera lowering quality of sprite paper2d

Hey guys,

I wanted to reach out and see if I can get some input as to why the camera distance causes my sprite to become super jaggy or unpolished ? Sprites are never stream and they're brought in at a decent resolution.

The sprites look great up close but when viewed from the gameplay camera, they start to get really poopy in quality.

then you have what it looks like in game with the camera distance

I was wondering if anyone had any input as to how I can achieve the best quality with camera distance ?

I'm using an orthographic camera for now because perspective loses even more quality than orthographic. with perspective I was using a 720p ratio.

Orthographic settings are as follows:

Ortho width: 2286.746094 Ortho Near Clip plane: 0.0 Ortho Far Clip Plane 2097152.0

Constrain Aspect Ratio: true

Aspect Ratio 1.77777~

Post Process blend weight: 1.0

Thank you,

Alex Batista

So far the best thing you can do is grab the right resolution for the texture of your sprite. Second thing in the texture settings, set the filtering to trilinear for high resolution and bilinear for lower resolution sprite textures. Play with mip map settings, I put sharpen 10 seems to help based on camera distance. the rest is just playing with the texture settings.

Thanks for repply! So, what is "right resolution"? I using a png with 1308x781, its right?

Recommendation: In whatever photoshop type program you use. Create a grid that is your camera size. Then create how big you want your art assets to look inside that camera view (If you're doing 2d with sprite you're probably not going to be moving in the camera closer or further away.) That will give you a good start resolution for your textures. Then you can play around with moving the camera closer or further away and seeing what you'll have to do to adjust and have a in the middle texture resolution.

Thanks for the tip, but, in my case i develop for android that contains devices with many different resolutions. This tip work same? Thanks alot.
