Apply layered effects


  • Posts: 129
I want to apply effects on the brightness layers or other effects on specific layers.
I only found that shaders can be applied but on the whole screen and not by layers. Is it possible to apply effects to specific layers? I don't want to use blnad modes of the layers in the level editor.

You can change your layer's blend mode through blocks. You can try using the image API to attach an image to your layer and adjust its brightness/opacity/blend mode as needed, since effects can be applied to image instances. That's the best I got.

My Stencyl resources are available here:
Cutscenes, RPG Elements, Particles, Map System and many more.

ok I wanted to apply it to the tiles in the layers, so as not to have to be editing the tiles to give shadow and darkness effects.
now i was trying to add a shader to an image to have a rippled water effect and i can't add it like i apply the shader to an image ?? because I get the whole screen of the game and not in the image!
