For Godot 3.x

You can simply copy the CRTShader.shader code to use on your project; to set it up, just use it in a an TextureRect with a white texture. Your game must be running 'under' the node for the CRT Shader to have any effect.

How the Shader works

This Shader is made of 3 main components:

All the effects have Uniform variables, so they can be controlled without changing the code.

The effects are based on these articles:
