Does anyone know whether libGDX has a method for scrolling/shifting an image/texture within itself?
To explain; I would like to be able to scroll the contents (pixels) of an image, either vertically or horizontally within its own region. For example, if an image is shifted 1 pixel to the right, all pixels move 1 to the right and those on the right-most-edge are wrapped to the left-most-edge. The image size does not change, only the positioning of the pixels within it change.
I have mainly been working with the Sprite class, it can do a lot (scale, rotate, etc) but shift/scroll as I need it, isn't there.
Before writting the method myself, I thought I'd ask here...
The following worked for me, this was provided by Kush:
float delta = 0f;
// In the Actors act method
delta += Gdx.graphics.getDeltaTime();
batch.draw(texture, 0, 0, width, height, 0 + delta * 10, 1, 1 + delta * 10, 0);
batch.draw(texture, 0, 0, width, height, 1, 0 + delta * 10, 0, 1 + delta * 10);
You won't need Sprite for this, draw directly Texture using batch. For wrapping first set
Texture texture = new Texture("example.png"); texture.setWrap(TextureWrap.Repeat, TextureWrap.Repeat);
then draw using uv
batch.draw(texture, x, y, width, height, u, v, u2, v2);
or any other method that suits you in SpriteBatch.
