So I have this game that simulates an old VHS (work in progress) but yea I wanted to see about making the pause effect which is currently working BUTi wanted to give it a kind of paused VHS look..
This is a perfect example. I didn't know someone did this till I found this in my searches for images so someone beat me too it but whatevs.
in my game i'm using layout webgl effects but they effect the entire screen.. i was wondering if there is a way to apply an effect on a specific part of a layer perhaps? maybe some kind of blur effect but only effecting a strip of the screen or something like that?
i know that i could attempt to use graphics to represent it but it wouldn't really look as good because it wouldn't distort the image behind it. just making sure i'm not overlooking a good technique i haven't discovered yet.
