I want the user to draw a mask on a Sprite. The sprite is initially invisible and as the user clicks on the sprite it reveal itself, like “painting” the Sprite.
I’m using the lightmask demo, my first attempt was to duplicate a light as long as the user clicks but it makes the game very slow.
I want to draw inside the Light2D’s texture. Is that possible ? Is it possible to draw a texture programatically ?
func _input(event): if ( event.type == InputEvent.MOUSE_BUTTON ): var tex = get_texture() tex.draw(get_node("brushSprite").get_texture() , event.pos ) set_texture(tex) update()
But this isn’t working.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Well, I tried pretty much everything. I learnt that drawing on a CanvasItem is pretty easy, but couldn’t convert that output on a working texture for my light.
The closer I got to is loading the image and painting Rect2 of 1 pixel size depending on mouse position.
I’ve seen there is a brush method in Image, but like the draw method on Texture, both are poorly documented, I tried using them with different parameters, no luck whatsover.

Ok, I’m getting closer:
var fondo var fondoData var brushData var whiteData func _ready(): set_process_input(true) fondo = ResourceLoader.load("res://assets/empty.png") fondoData = fondo.get_data() whiteData = ResourceLoader.load("res://assets/white.png").get_data() brushData = ResourceLoader.load("res://assets/brush_bw.png").get_data() func _input(event): if Input.is_mouse_button_pressed(1): var realPos = event.pos realPos.x -= brushData.get_width() / 2 realPos.y -= brushData.get_height() / 2 fondoData.brush_transfer( whiteData, brushData, realPos ) get_node("cabeza/luces/luz").get_texture().set_data(fondoData)
fondoData.brush_transfer works like this:
- fondoData is the background image.
- whiteData is an image with same size that you want to put over fondoData
- brushData is a grayscale image that will be used as brush
- realPos is the position where you want to paint
pretty simple actually, and this is working, but still very slow (although faster that previous attempts).
Another way that works is not using lightmask and instead of whiteData use the image data. same bad performance tho
Maybe shaders its the answer…
