+ View and control shader files with the Raspberry pi


SLIMSHADER is an Open Source Raspberry PI project based on glslViewer* capable of displaying OpenGL/GLSL shader files (stills and motion graphics files).

Shader files can be displayed "as designed" or controlled/manipulated in various ways: Manually, LFO, MIDI, Audio or CV (5V or 1V).

In the videos we see the "Just Shaders" version in action. This version only requires you to power the Raspberry pi and hook it up to a HDMI monitor (or projector in this demo) and it will run through all 200+ onboard shader files (at random).

The full version -the one with cool additional controls- is still under development for 2021.

Please note that creditcs go out to all makers of the GLSL shader files; their names can often be found in the header of the shader file itself (see /home/pi/slimshader/justshaders).
