I am curious, I am blundering around writing shaders and currently I do silly things and I don't know why.
Sometimes I have to flip a texture coordinate: texpos.y = 1.0 - texpos.y;
I haven't figured out why I need to sometimes, all I know is that the effect is upside down and I am fixing it. I thought 0,0 is top left and 1.1 is bottom right as far as tex coordinates go?

Actually, top left is (0,1) and bottom right is (1,0) - you can check it by visualizing the UV coords - something like:
output = vec4(vTex.x,vTex.y, 0.,1.);
I was confused about that as well - most sources say (0,0) and (1,1).
I would like to help you a bit;
here is a little circle code ;
vec2 uv = vTex;
uv.y =1.-uv.y; // flip uv screen ;
vec2 cpos=vec2(0.0,0.0); /// position of our circle
float distance = distance(cpos, uv);
if (distance > 0.05)
gl_FragColor = vec4(0, 0, 0, 1.0);
gl_FragColor = vec4(1, 1, 1, 1.0);
The position of vectors change depending of the screen if it's flipped or not;
if you comment : uv.y =1.-uv.y; the bottom left is (0,0) if not flipped
the top left is (0,0).. try to change the position of circle : vec2 cpos = vec2(0.2,0.2) ... etc
when flip is used it's not flip texture but it's flip the screen , and the reason of inversed vectors are here .
Hope this help
