[sharing] Color Streaker
Mar 05 2015 | 9:19 pm
Today a friend asked me about creating a sort of streaky feedback effect that resembled pixels melting. I immediately pulled out my trusty jit.gl.pix and whipped together this patch:
OK, so it wasn't quite "immediately", but it didn't take me that long. A lot of this is pretty standard Gen stuff, but the tricky thing here is that I'm storing the alpha channel used in the feedback and combining that with a mask to get an effect like pixels falling, taking their mask with them. Hopefully the patch kind of speaks for itself, as there's a lot more commentary on this than the one I posted here: https://cycling74.com/forums/simple-gen-video-synth/
OK, hope you enjoy and post your tweaks and questions.
