GLES 2.0 2D Fragment Shader Tutorial Series in a Single Godot Project from Beginner to Advanced

Fragment Shader Tutorial Series (2D) in a Single Godot Project (GLES 2.0) based on GLSL 2D Tutorials Code by Ugur Guney in Shadertoy. 

Hi Every One,

This is a converted and interpreted set of shaders compatible Godot Shader Language (GLES 2.0) in One Godot Project. Thanks to Uğur Güney’s efforts from 2014 to 2020 (https://www.shadertoy.com/view/Md23DV). It is said it was popular in GLSL Sandbox for while.

It is a template for an organised study medium as my own self-tutorial and for the next ones.

Note: “Book of Shaders in One Godot Project” is in preparatory stage. Website sections completed. Image Processing” section in PDF remainded only.

Link to Full Project in Github: https://github.com/Volkovina/GLES-2.0-2D-Fragment-Shader-Tutorial-Series-in-Godot-Beginner-to-Advanced

Godot Version: 3.4.4 Standard (not tested older ones. there is no specific implementation to create problem.)

Shader: GLES 2.0 (Working in GLES 3.0 too)

What has been done and not done

  • a Pure Black 200 x 113 pixels PNG created as a texture base for shaded sprites not to use scaling in Godot.
  • textures in sprites flipped vertically, because y axis positive direction from top to bottom in Godot, unlike in Shadertoy except “27 MOUSE INPUT”.
  • one Shadertoy file divided into 29 shader resources file in one folder, because “option structure” such as below cannot be trackable for a long text in Godot Shader easily.
    • #define TUTORIAL 0
    • #if TUTORIAL == 0
    • ………
    • #endif
  • all #define terms converted into const …
  • uniform vec2 iResolution = vec2(200.0, 113.0); defined and declared in each shader resource
  • fragCoord converted into UV equivalent.
  • iTime converted into TIME.
  • nested ternaries changed if / else if structure, because Godot GLES 2.0 does not support nested one.
  • mat2(x ,y ,z ,w ) structure changed to mat2(vec2(x , y), vec2(z ,w )) structure, otherwise Godot GLES 2.0 does not support.
  • in GLES 2.0, both global and local variables definition with same name is not supported. So, they all changed accordingly.
  • fragColor converted into COLOR.
  • similar 3 Textures found and implemented instead of 3 iChannel Textures.
  • different mouse interaction structure organised within GdScript (imouse.gd) to compare iMouse(vec4) in Shadertoy. It can be examined.
  • some lines from Shadertoy kept as commented for logic comparison.
  • System structured as shown pictures below.
  • “esc”, “Q” keys, “mouse left click” and “mouse move” intervene in run window.
  • main imperfection is not to transport shader codes into run screen as a pair with the result shaded tile. You can check that easily in editor via folders.

Hi! I started learning GLSL a month ago. The speedup gained by using
GPU to draw real-time graphics amazed me. If you want to learn
how to write shaders, this tutorial written by a beginner can be
a starting place for you.
