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"

How would I add refraction to a post-process Blendable?

I am trying to add some glitchiness to my night vision post processing, but I am unsure of how to get refraction in a post-processing material.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

An easy way would be to use some mask in a post-process to only affect some parts of the view where you can simply offset the SceneColor with some new coordinates.

A more complex effect can be done by only shifting a specific RGB channel, like done in remember me. A bit explained here by Remember Me developers :


Low Health, Hit and Game Over Glitches are basically made of billboard non-square particles attached to the camera.

These particles makes use of a set of three simple shaders based on reading a resolved backbuffer with distorted and/or offset texture coordinates. By using offset, glitch and chromatic aberration we tried to reproduce block corruption as seen in JPEG/MPEG-based compression

The main goals were to reduce screen coverage to a minimum (to save performance) while offering unique motion, dynamics and random repartition at each time: as particle tool provided great control for this kind of effect.

The chromatic aberration effect involves three readings of the backbuffer (one for each RGB channel), each one slightly offset from the others, and recomposed into a final RGB output.
