SolidEnergy is a shader used for Portal 2's fizzler, excursion funnel, light bridge, and laser field materials (in all games since [Portal 2]).

The shader is known to work in [Portal 2] Portal 2 and <Counter-Strike: Global Offensive> Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Supported effects

To do: What other effects does this shader support?

Detail

When using a basetexture, the shader also renders 2 optional detail textures, which are blended with the basetexture. Both of these detail textures use the same syntax of variant parameters as $detail, with "$detail1" or "$detail2" replacing the "$detail" prefix. (eg: $detail1scale 1) This method MUST be used if the material is to be used on a model, as meshes will not render if a flowmap is applied.

$detail1 <string>
Detail texture 1
$detail2 <string>
Detail texture 2

etc

Type 1 (Flowmap) Example

The example shown below is materials/effects/fizzler.vmt from Portal 2.

SolidEnergy
{
	$basetexture "effects/fizzler_ripples_dim"
	$flowmap "effects/fizzler_flow"
	$flowbounds "effects/fizzler_bounds"
	$FLOW_NOISE_TEXTURE "effects/fizzler_noise"
	$FLOW_UVSCROLLDISTANCE "0.25"
	$FLOW_TIMEINTERVALINSECONDS "1.2"
	$FLOW_NOISE_SCALE 0.003
	$FLOW_LERPEXP 1.5
	$FLOW_WORLDUVSCALE 0.008
	$FLOW_NORMALUVSCALE 0.008
	$FLOW_COLOR "[0.025 0.08 0.1]"
	$FLOW_VORTEX_COLOR "[0.64 2.058 2.56]"
	$surfaceprop glass
	"%keywords" Portal2
	$translucent 1
	$additive 1
	$FLOW_VORTEX_SIZE 35

	"360?$outputintensity" 2.8
	"SonyPS3?$outputintensity" .7
	"srgb_pc?$outputintensity" 2.3
	"!srgb_pc?$outputintensity" 1.7

	Proxies
	{
		FizzlerVortex
		{
		}
	}
}

Type 2 (Basetexture and Detail) Example

The example shown below is materials/effects/projected_wall.vmt from Portal 2.
