Image sequence as displacement filter


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to use an image sequence as a displacement filter, I'm able to use an .mp4 directly as a displacement filter but not sure how to use an image sequence. Does anybody have any recommendations about achieving this? 

Currently this only outputs the first frame as a displacement map. (The animation works fine but not when used as a displacement filter). 

depthMap = new PIXI.extras.AnimatedSprite.fromFrames(depthFrames);
depthMap.animationSpeed = 0.167;                  

displacementFilter = new PIXI.filters.DisplacementFilter(depthMap);
app.stage.filters = [displacementFilter];

 Appreciate any guidance.

See this? https://github.com/pixijs/pixijs/blob/5bd4c5bb683dca5a33e511277273a832342fb804/packages/filters/filter-displacement/src/DisplacementFilter.ts#L44


It doesnt actually set texture from sprite every time. You can patch applyFilter to do that

let previousApply = DisplacementFilter.prototype.applyFilter;
DisplacementFilter.prototype.applyFilter = 

    function apply(
        filterManager, input, output, clearMode
        this.uniforms.mapSampler = this.maskSprite.texture
        previousApply.call(this, filterManager, input, output, clearMode)

You are working with WebGL. WebGL is hard and we cannot possibly watch all the cases for users. Please open PixiJS sources in separate IDE window and search by class name every time you use a new class.
