Converting GLSL to Magic

Tue Apr 06, 2021 11:41 am

I've found some code online that I'd love to try to use in Magic. As I understand it, there are some limitations as to what can be brought into Magic. Before I jump down the rabbit hole of trying to convert this to something Magic understands, I'd like to know if it's even possible. If anyone knows if it's doable and relatively trivial it would be appreciated to know before giving it a shot. I'd be interested in getting something like this to work on images/video. Thanks.

It probably wouldn't be too hard to format it like GLSLSandbox or Shadertoy or ISF, but you'd need to have some understanding of GLSL.

Thanks Eric. Good to know it's doable, but sounds like it will require more than simply reformatting the controls. Will put it on the back burner for now and return to it when I have some more time. Cheers
