Recolorize Specific Character Parts

  • #2, by afrlmeTuesday, 14. March 2017, 19:51 7 years ago

    My team is discussing the possibility of having a color-shift effect on a specific part of a character.

    As far as I read on earlier threads we cannot apply shaders specifically on a character, has this changed?
    We are still developing the character animations so we can easily have a specific palette to cherry-pick for color shifting but my question is wether this can be done in the latest version of VS using a script.

    Thank you in advance,

    You could create multiple outfits for a character & swap the outfits as needed, but no, I don't think it will be possible to use the openGL shader to tint parts of a character in Visionaire Studio 5 either. You should look into sprite part animation (Spine), but from the sound of Simon's recent replies in certain threads it's not sounding like you can swap out sprite parts during runtime either, which is a shame.

    It would be extremely useful to have all graphics in the engine tintable to any colour.  It would have endless practical uses.  Shouldn't require shaders, should just be an option in the GUI.
