Pixel Shader

Basic Shader

Pixel Shader

The Pixel Shader creates a pixel-like distribution of a texture. Top right: With Pixel Shader applied; bottom right: Without the Pixel Shader applied.

Let’s say you want to project a texture made up of small areas of the same color onto a surface (e.g., a TFT display). You would want the individual pixels to also look good close up. This is where the Pixel Shader works its magic - it creates a fitting "pixel coarseness" without having to make changes to the original texture.

The Pixel Shader only works with 2D Shaders and textures. When using a Noise Shader, for example, the Space option should be set to UV (2D)
