CRT Monitor Shader

Gimpy Software

You must be logged in to obtain assets


Add a retro feel to your projects with this CRT Monitor-effect pixel shader. Gradually apply the shader to smoothly transition from your 'normal' screen into a CRT simulation.

Complete with a monitor bevel based on real 80's hardware, this asset includes a documented demo application showing off the following features:

  • Glass texture
  • Screen curve, shine, and shadows
  • Scanlines (Optional)
  • Green screen (Optional)
  • Screen 'shut down' effect (Optional)
  • ...plus an 'old school' text-typewriter object.

This shader uses your GPU to apply all these effects, so has negligible impact on your CPU and requires no additional sprites.

Drive using a simple API, and/or tweak the commented shader code for more low-level control.

If you use this asset in your code, we'll happily tweet (@GimpySoftware) screenshots of your project!

This asset includes example code which you can use as reference, or as the start of your own project.
