3-point texture filtering

Very simple port of 3point texture filtering from GLideN64 ( https://github.com/gonetz/GLideN64 ) to the Godot Engine.

Texture’s filtering has to be disabled, otherwise there will be artifacts.

Texture size has to be set manually due to a GLES2 limitation, this can also be used to down or upscale textures non-destructively.

uniform sampler2D tex;

void fragment() {
	vec2 offset = fract(UV*texSize - vec2(0.5));
	offset -= step(1.0, offset.x + offset.y);
	vec4 c0 = texture(tex, UV - (offset)/texSize);
	vec2 c1off = vec2(offset.x - sign(offset.x), offset.y);
	vec4 c1 = texture(tex, UV - (c1off)/texSize);
	vec2 c2off = vec2(offset.x, offset.y - sign(offset.y));
	vec4 c2 = texture(tex, UV - (c2off)/texSize);
	ALBEDO = vec4(c0 + abs(offset.x)*(c1-c0) + abs(offset.y)*(c2-c0)).rgb;

I have no plans to use this shader but I just want to say that thumbnail is hilarious.
