  1. Set up your project to use the programmable shader. in the int main(...) function, before setting up openGL or the app, use:

  2. Set up the ofxShadertoy to load a file with the shadertoy glsl code

    ofxShadertoy shadertoy;
  3. Set up textures if needed by the shader

    shadertoy.setTexture(0, nifty_texture);
  4. In your draw() routine, draw a quad (or use begin() and end() to set up the shaders for a mesh) Effects happen in screen space.


I've set up some extensions to the shader parameters, mostly relating to using a camera (for use, non-exclusively, with another one of my addons, ofxFPSControls). The new uniforms are:

uniform mat4 tCameraMatrix; - a camera matrix that can be set up using ofCamera or any child class (e.g. ofxFPSControls)
