I am new to the forums and Construct 2, so I don't know if this is a dumb question. :P
I'm trying to make a horizontal space shooter, and I want to make an distortion effect similar to the background in this video.
Is there a way I can do this, or is this too advanced for a beginner?
It may be possible with shaders when they come, but there's no ETA for that feature yet.

I believe someone was working on a Mode7 plugin which might work for this - otherwise you could try skewing a sprite or making it via animation.
