YIQ Hue Rotation Shader (GLSL)

Here’s code for a YIQ color space based hue rotation post process shader. This isn’t an HSL or HSV hue rotation, but for simple effects it should suffice. I really just wanted to see how the effect looked, as I think I will be using the hue rotation locally (write it into a separate shader for use in materials instead of as a post process effect), but I thought someone else might like it. To quickly see it in action, you can replace the Bloom.xml post process file with it (make sure to change the tag to “Bloom” if you do).


    <command type="quad" tag="HueRotation" vs="HueRotation" ps="HueRotation" output="viewport">
        <parameter name="Rotation" value="1.75" />
        <texture unit="diffuse" name="viewport" />

    vScreenPos = GetScreenPosPreDiv(gl_Position);

	return m * v;
