PIXI.AbstractFilter was not found


Recommended Posts

I'm using Pixi.js 6.0.4 (installed through NPM). Anyway, I get an error that AbstractFilter is not found while using it like this:


const shader = new PIXI.AbstractFilter('', gridShader, uniforms);

Part of the error message:

export 'AbstractFilter' (imported as 'PIXI') was not found in 'pixi.js' (possible exports: ...

Where is it then? I also looked at pixi-filters package ant it's not there either. Doesn't NPM version include AbstractFilter (and if so, why) or does it go by a different name in the version I am using?

AbstractFilter was part of pixi v3. Now its just Filter. While you're at it, for compatibility with v3 filters its recommended to add "container.filterArea = renderer.screen" , and specify vertex shader if it was default.  more details on https://github.com/pixijs/pixijs/wiki/v5-Creating-filters and https://github.com/pixijs/pixijs/wiki/v4-Creating-Filters . Also if your filter doesnt need actual texture imput (no usage of sampler)  - just use mesh-shader instead https://pixijs.io/examples/#/mesh-and-shaders/triangle-textured.js , just supply it a quad instead of triangle
