halftone

(glslbin demo)

A halftone shader in GLSL, adapted from Stefan Gustavson's work here. Bilinear texture sampling and minification are left up to the user to implement (see steps 5 and 9 in Gustavson's tutorial).

For anti-aliasing, you should enable standard derivatives at the top of your shader, before requiring this module.

precision highp float;
 
#ifdef GL_OES_standard_derivatives
#extension GL_OES_standard_derivatives : enable
#endif
 
varying vec2 uv;
uniform vec2 iResolution;
uniform sampler2D u_sampler;
 
#pragma glslify: halftone require('glsl-halftone') 
 
void main() {
  //sample from texture; optionally using manual bilinear filtering 
  vec4 texcolor = texture2D(u_sampler, uv);
 
  //aspect corrected texture coordinates 
  vec2 st = uv;
  st.x *= iResolution.x / iResolution.y;
  
  //apply halftone effect 
  gl_FragColor.rgb = halftone(texcolor.rgb, st);
  gl_FragColor.a = 1.0;
}

Usage

NPM

vec3 halftone(vec3 color, vec2 uv[, float frequency])

Applies a halftone effect to the given texture color using the uv coordinates. Higher frequency (default 30.0) leads to more tiling and smaller circles. Returns the RGB result.
