I agree some sort of order would be nice. At the moment they just seem to be listed randomly.

- marker for transparent shader
- option to play only transparent

It would be better if we had a way to organise them. Right now it's hard to group...moving them in the list is really long when you have more then a 100. A way to create Shader playlist would be awesome!

Also it would be cool to be able to lock the windows like the sidelist and sampler.

Perhaps a settable effect_string for the shader fx, maybe even let it accept filepath for the shader so we could have "shader playlists"
(tried a few things but nothing sticks)

Should already work

oh ok let me test

So it does, I'm struggling with the syntax for shader on fx slot 3 or no slot,
got it
_
effect_string "shader" 1

not changing the shader though
effect_string "shader" 1 "shaderName"
effect_string "shader" "shaderName" 1

Ok getting somewhere

the effect_string wants the shader name (the base64 name) and in the shader gui it moves to the selected shader but the output stays as it was.

You are right, will check. Also should accept the readable name as well I guess, a little difficult like this :p

so we have to learn scripting to organize shaders instead of having folders to organize..
maybe something like this...?

geposted Sat 16 Feb 19 @ 11:02 am
I've just had a though (will need to rest a while now!)...

Rather than names, I think it would be far better to be able to pick shaders based on their appearance - like cover art for shaders.

a preview thumbnail would be nice, but for now... I gotta say

THANK YOU!!!!!

Just spotted a need while sorting shaders in to folders.
A automagically filled folder for "unsorted" I could make my own unsorted folder and copy everything from "all" in to that, then move to other sorted folders but as I DL more new shaders I'd struggle to know which have been sorted and which hasn't.

I've got my shaders folded in to 'themes' like disco, psy, B&W etc And that's alright but now I'm wanting have some shaders in several folders.
Specifically I'm wanting to make folders for shaders that are good with a specific transition.
Is there any way of doing this in shaderList.xml ?
[I guess I could copy&edit the .shader, give it a new name etc, or copy & republish on the shadertoy site]
