Class: RenderTexture

Phaser.GameObjects. RenderTexture

A Render Texture.

A Render Texture is a special texture that allows any number of Game Objects to be drawn to it. You can take many complex objects and draw them all to this one texture, which can they be used as the texture for other Game Object's. It's a way to generate dynamic textures at run-time that are WebGL friendly and don't invoke expensive GPU uploads.

Note that under WebGL a FrameBuffer, which is what the Render Texture uses internally, cannot be anti-aliased. This means that when drawing objects such as Shapes to a Render Texture they will appear to be drawn with no aliasing, however this is a technical limitation of WebGL. To get around it, create your shape as a texture in an art package, then draw that to the Render Texture.

blendMode :Phaser.BlendModes|string

Sets the Blend Mode being used by this Game Object.

This can be a const, such as Phaser.BlendModes.SCREEN, or an integer, such as 4 (for Overlay)

Under WebGL only the following Blend Modes are available:

  • ADD
  • MULTIPLY
  • SCREEN
  • ERASE

Canvas has more available depending on browser support.

You can also create your own custom Blend Modes in WebGL.

Blend modes have different effects under Canvas and WebGL, and from browser to browser, depending on support. Blend Modes also cause a WebGL batch flush should it encounter a new blend mode. For these reasons try to be careful about the construction of your Scene and the frequency of which blend modes are used.

If you prefer to work in degrees, see the angle property instead.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • 1
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Transform.js (Line 223)

scale :number

This is a special setter that allows you to set both the horizontal and vertical scale of this Game Object to the same value, at the same time. When reading this value the result returned is (scaleX + scaleY) / 2.

Use of this property implies you wish the horizontal and vertical scales to be equal to each other. If this isn't the case, use the scaleX or scaleY properties instead.

Type:
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 38)

scrollFactorX :number

The horizontal scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions. Bodies always collide based on their world position, but changing the scroll factor is a visual adjustment to where the textures are rendered, which can offset them from physics bodies if not accounted for in your code.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • 1
Source: src/gameobjects/components/ScrollFactor.js (Line 16)

scrollFactorY :number

The vertical scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions.

  • 1
Source: src/gameobjects/components/ScrollFactor.js (Line 40)

state :integer|string

The current state of this Game Object.

Phaser itself will never modify this value, although plugins may do so.

Use this property to track the state of a Game Object during its lifetime. For example, it could move from a state of 'moving', to 'attacking', to 'dead'. The state value should be an integer (ideally mapped to a constant in your game code), or a string. These are recommended to keep it light and simple, with fast comparisons. If you need to store complex data about your Game Object, look at using the Data Component instead.

createBitmapMask( [renderable])

Creates and returns a Bitmap Mask. This mask can be used by any Game Object, including this one.

To create the mask you need to pass in a reference to a renderable Game Object. A renderable Game Object is one that uses a texture to render with, such as an Image, Sprite, Render Texture or BitmapText.

If you do not provide a renderable object, and this Game Object has a texture, it will use itself as the object. This means you can call this method to create a Bitmap Mask from any renderable Game Object.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
renderable Phaser.GameObjects.GameObject <optional>

A renderable Game Object that uses a texture, such as a Sprite.

Since: 3.6.2
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Mask.js (Line 80)
Returns:

This Bitmap Mask that was created.

Type
Phaser.Display.Masks.BitmapMask

createGeometryMask( [graphics])

Creates and returns a Geometry Mask. This mask can be used by any Game Object, including this one.

To create the mask you need to pass in a reference to a Graphics Game Object.

If you do not provide a graphics object, and this Game Object is an instance of a Graphics object, then it will use itself to create the mask.

This means you can call this method to create a Geometry Mask from any Graphics Game Object.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
graphics Phaser.GameObjects.Graphics <optional>

A Graphics Game Object. The geometry within it will be used as the mask.

Since: 3.6.2
Inherited From:

Returns:

This Geometry Mask that was created.

Type
Phaser.Display.Masks.GeometryMask

destroy( [fromScene])

Destroys this Game Object removing it from the Display List and Update List and severing all ties to parent resources.

Also removes itself from the Input Manager and Physics Manager if previously enabled.

Use this to remove a Game Object from your game if you don't ever plan to use it again. As long as no reference to it exists within your own code it should become free for garbage collection by the browser.

If you just want to temporarily disable an object then look at using the Game Object Pool instead of destroying it, as destroyed objects cannot be resurrected.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
fromScene boolean <optional>
false

Is this Game Object being destroyed as the result of a Scene shutdown?

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 545)

Draws the given object, or an array of objects, to this Render Texture.

It can accept any of the following:

  • Any renderable Game Object, such as a Sprite, Text, Graphics or TileSprite.
  • Dynamic and Static Tilemap Layers.
  • A Group. The contents of which will be iterated and drawn in turn.
  • A Container. The contents of which will be iterated fully, and drawn in turn.
  • A Scene's Display List. Pass in Scene.children to draw the whole list.
  • Another Render Texture.
  • A Texture Frame instance.
  • A string. This is used to look-up a texture from the Texture Manager.

Note: You cannot draw a Render Texture to itself.

If passing in a Group or Container it will only draw children that return true when their willRender() method is called. I.e. a Container with 10 children, 5 of which have visible=false will only draw the 5 visible ones.

If passing in an array of Game Objects it will draw them all, regardless if they pass a willRender check or not.

You can pass in a string in which case it will look for a texture in the Texture Manager matching that string, and draw the base frame. If you need to specify exactly which frame to draw then use the method drawFrame instead.

You can pass in the x and y coordinates to draw the objects at. The use of the coordinates differ based on what objects are being drawn. If the object is a Group, Container or Display List, the coordinates are added to the positions of the children. For all other types of object, the coordinates are exact.

The alpha and tint values are only used by Texture Frames. Game Objects use their own alpha and tint values when being drawn.

Calling this method causes the WebGL batch to flush, so it can write the texture data to the framebuffer being used internally. The batch is flushed at the end, after the entries have been iterated. So if you've a bunch of objects to draw, try and pass them in an array in one single call, rather than making lots of separate calls.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
entries any

Any renderable Game Object, or Group, Container, Display List, other Render Texture, Texture Frame or an array of any of these.

x number <optional>

The x position to draw the Frame at, or the offset applied to the object.

y number <optional>

The y position to draw the Frame at, or the offset applied to the object.

alpha number <optional>

The alpha value. Only used for Texture Frames and if not specified defaults to the globalAlpha property. Game Objects use their own current alpha value.

tint number <optional>

WebGL only. The tint color value. Only used for Texture Frames and if not specified defaults to the globalTint property. Game Objects use their own current tint value.

Since: 3.2.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rendertexture/RenderTexture.js (Line 674)
Returns:

This Render Texture instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

drawFrame(key [, frame] [, x] [, y] [, alpha] [, tint])

Draws the Texture Frame to the Render Texture at the given position.

Textures are referenced by their string-based keys, as stored in the Texture Manager.

var rt = this.add.renderTexture(0, 0, 800, 600);
rt.drawFrame(key, frame);

You can optionally provide a position, alpha and tint value to apply to the frame before it is drawn.

Calling this method will cause a batch flush, so if you've got a stack of things to draw in a tight loop, try using the draw method instead.

If you need to draw a Sprite to this Render Texture, use the draw method instead.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
key string

The key of the texture to be used, as stored in the Texture Manager.

frame string | integer <optional>

The name or index of the frame within the Texture.

x number <optional>

y number <optional>
0

The y position to draw the frame at.

alpha number <optional>

The alpha to use. If not specified it uses the globalAlpha property.

tint number <optional>

WebGL only. The tint color to use. If not specified it uses the globalTint property.

erase(entries [, x] [, y])

Draws the given object, or an array of objects, to this Render Texture using a blend mode of ERASE. This has the effect of erasing any filled pixels in the objects from this Render Texture.

It can accept any of the following:

  • Any renderable Game Object, such as a Sprite, Text, Graphics or TileSprite.
  • Dynamic and Static Tilemap Layers.
  • A Group. The contents of which will be iterated and drawn in turn.

  • A Scene's Display List. Pass in Scene.children to draw the whole list.
  • Another Render Texture.
  • A Texture Frame instance.
  • A string. This is used to look-up a texture from the Texture Manager.

Note: You cannot erase a Render Texture from itself.

If passing in a Group or Container it will only draw children that return true when their willRender() method is called. I.e. a Container with 10 children, 5 of which have visible=false will only draw the 5 visible ones.

If passing in an array of Game Objects it will draw them all, regardless if they pass a willRender check or not.

You can pass in a string in which case it will look for a texture in the Texture Manager matching that string, and draw the base frame.

You can pass in the x and y coordinates to draw the objects at. The use of the coordinates differ based on what objects are being drawn. If the object is a Group, Container or Display List, the coordinates are added to the positions of the children. For all other types of object, the coordinates are exact.

removeInteractive()

If this Game Object has previously been enabled for input, this will queue it for removal, causing it to no longer be interactive. The removal happens on the next game step, it is not immediate.

The Interactive Object that was assigned to this Game Object will be destroyed, removed from the Input Manager and cleared from this Game Object.

If you wish to re-enable this Game Object at a later date you will need to re-create its InteractiveObject by calling setInteractive again.

If you wish to only temporarily stop an object from receiving input then use disableInteractive instead, as that toggles the interactive state, where-as this erases it completely.

If you wish to resize a hit area, don't remove and then set it as being interactive. Instead, access the hitarea object directly and resize the shape being used. I.e.: sprite.input.hitArea.setSize(width, height) (assuming the shape is a Rectangle, which it is by default.)

Type
boolean

resize(width [, height])

Resizes the Render Texture to the new dimensions given.

If Render Texture was created from specific frame, only the size of the frame will be changed. The size of the source texture will not change.

If Render Texture was not created from specific frame, the following will happen: In WebGL it will destroy and then re-create the frame buffer being used by the Render Texture. In Canvas it will resize the underlying canvas element. Both approaches will erase everything currently drawn to the Render Texture.

If the dimensions given are the same as those already being used, calling this method will do nothing.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
width number

The new width of the Render Texture.

height number <optional>
width

The new height of the Render Texture. If not specified, will be set the same as the width.

Since: 3.10.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rendertexture/RenderTexture.js (Line 319)
Returns:

This Render Texture.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

saveTexture(key)

Stores a copy of this Render Texture in the Texture Manager using the given key.

After doing this, any texture based Game Object, such as a Sprite, can use the contents of this Render Texture by using the texture key:

var rt = this.add.renderTexture(0, 0, 128, 128);

// Draw something to the Render Texture

rt.saveTexture('doodle');

this.add.image(400, 300, 'doodle');

Updating the contents of this Render Texture will automatically update any Game Object that is using it as a texture. Calling saveTexture again will not save another copy of the same texture, it will just rename the key of the existing copy.

By default it will create a single base texture. You can add frames to the texture by using the Texture.add method. After doing this, you can then allow Game Objects to use a specific frame from a Render Texture.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
key string

The unique key to store the texture as within the global Texture Manager.

Since: 3.12.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rendertexture/RenderTexture.js (Line 450)
Returns:

The Texture that was saved.

Type
Phaser.Textures.Texture

setActive(value)

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value boolean

True if this Game Object should be set as active, false if not.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 195)
Returns:

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setAlpha( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Set the Alpha level of this Game Object. The alpha controls the opacity of the Game Object as it renders. Alpha values are provided as a float between 0, fully transparent, and 1, fully opaque.

If your game is running under WebGL you can optionally specify four different alpha values, each of which correspond to the four corners of the Game Object. Under Canvas only the topLeft value given is used.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
topLeft number <optional>
1

The alpha value used for the top-left of the Game Object. If this is the only value given it's applied across the whole Game Object.

topRight number <optional>

The alpha value used for the top-right of the Game Object. WebGL only.

bottomLeft number <optional>

The alpha value used for the bottom-left of the Game Object. WebGL only.

bottomRight number <optional>

The alpha value used for the bottom-right of the Game Object. WebGL only.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Alpha.js (Line 92)
Returns:

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setAngle( [degrees])

Sets the angle of this Game Object.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
degrees number <optional>
0

The rotation of this Game Object, in degrees.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Transform.js (Line 329)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setBlendMode(value)

Sets the Blend Mode being used by this Game Object.

This can be a const, such as Phaser.BlendModes.SCREEN, or an integer, such as 4 (for Overlay)

Under WebGL only the following Blend Modes are available:

  • ADD
  • MULTIPLY
  • SCREEN
  • ERASE (only works when rendering to a framebuffer, like a Render Texture)

Canvas has more available depending on browser support.

You can also create your own custom Blend Modes in WebGL.

Blend modes have different effects under Canvas and WebGL, and from browser to browser, depending on support. Blend Modes also cause a WebGL batch flush should it encounter a new blend mode. For these reasons try to be careful about the construction of your Scene and the frequency in which blend modes are used.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value string | Phaser.BlendModes

The BlendMode value. Either a string or a CONST.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/BlendMode.js (Line 79)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setData(key [, data])

Allows you to store a key value pair within this Game Objects Data Manager.

If the Game Object has not been enabled for data (via setDataEnabled) then it will be enabled before setting the value.

If the key doesn't already exist in the Data Manager then it is created.

sprite.setData('name', 'Red Gem Stone');

You can also pass in an object of key value pairs as the first argument:

sprite.setData({ name: 'Red Gem Stone', level: 2, owner: 'Link', gold: 50 });

To get a value back again you can call getData:

sprite.getData('gold');

Or you can access the value directly via the values property, where it works like any other variable:

sprite.data.values.gold += 50;

When the value is first set, a setdata event is emitted from this Game Object.

If the key already exists, a changedata event is emitted instead, along an event named after the key. For example, if you updated an existing key called PlayerLives then it would emit the event changedata-PlayerLives. These events will be emitted regardless if you use this method to set the value, or the direct values setter.

Please note that the data keys are case-sensitive and must be valid JavaScript Object property strings. This means the keys gold and Gold are treated as two unique values within the Data Manager.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
key string | object

The key to set the value for. Or an object of key value pairs. If an object the data argument is ignored.

data * <optional>

The value to set for the given key. If an object is provided as the key this argument is ignored.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setDepth(value)

The depth of this Game Object within the Scene.

The depth is also known as the 'z-index' in some environments, and allows you to change the rendering order of Game Objects, without actually moving their position in the display list.

The depth starts from zero (the default value) and increases from that point. A Game Object with a higher depth value will always render in front of one with a lower value.

Setting the depth will queue a depth sort event within the Scene.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value integer

The depth of this Game Object.

setFlip(x, y)

Sets the horizontal and vertical flipped state of this Game Object.

A Game Object that is flipped will render inversed on the flipped axis. Flipping always takes place from the middle of the texture and does not impact the scale value. If this Game Object has a physics body, it will not change the body. This is a rendering toggle only.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
x boolean

The horizontal flipped state. false for no flip, or true to be flipped.

y boolean

The horizontal flipped state. false for no flip, or true to be flipped.

setInteractive( [shape] [, callback] [, dropZone])

Pass this Game Object to the Input Manager to enable it for Input.

Input works by using hit areas, these are nearly always geometric shapes, such as rectangles or circles, that act as the hit area for the Game Object. However, you can provide your own hit area shape and callback, should you wish to handle some more advanced input detection.

If no arguments are provided it will try and create a rectangle hit area based on the texture frame the Game Object is using. If this isn't a texture-bound object, such as a Graphics or BitmapText object, this will fail, and you'll need to provide a specific shape for it to use.

You can also provide an Input Configuration Object as the only argument to this method.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
shape Phaser.Types.Input.InputConfiguration | any <optional>

Either an input configuration object, or a geometric shape that defines the hit area for the Game Object. If not specified a Rectangle will be used.

callback Phaser.Types.Input.HitAreaCallback <optional>

A callback to be invoked when the Game Object is interacted with. If you provide a shape you must also provide a callback.

dropZone boolean <optional>
false

Should this Game Object be treated as a drop zone target?

Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 373)
Returns:

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setMask(mask)

Sets the mask that this Game Object will use to render with.

The mask must have been previously created and can be either a GeometryMask or a BitmapMask. Note: Bitmap Masks only work on WebGL. Geometry Masks work on both WebGL and Canvas.

If a mask is already set on this Game Object it will be immediately replaced.

Masks are positioned in global space and are not relative to the Game Object to which they are applied. The reason for this is that multiple Game Objects can all share the same mask.

Masks have no impact on physics or input detection. They are purely a rendering component that allows you to limit what is visible during the render pass.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
mask Phaser.Display.Masks.BitmapMask | Phaser.Display.Masks.GeometryMask

The mask this Game Object will use when rendering.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setScrollFactor(x [, y])

Sets the scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions. Bodies always collide based on their world position, but changing the scroll factor is a visual adjustment to where the textures are rendered, which can offset them from physics bodies if not accounted for in your code.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
x number

The horizontal scroll factor of this Game Object.

y number <optional>
x

The vertical scroll factor of this Game Object. If not set it will use the x value.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setState(value)

Sets the current state of this Game Object.

Phaser itself will never modify the State of a Game Object, although plugins may do so.

For example, a Game Object could change from a state of 'moving', to 'attacking', to 'dead'. The state value should typically be an integer (ideally mapped to a constant in your game code), but could also be a string. It is recommended to keep it light and simple. If you need to store complex data about your Game Object, look at using the Data Component instead.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value integer | string

The state of the Game Object.

Returns:

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setTint( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Sets an additive tint on this Game Object.

The tint works by taking the pixel color values from the Game Objects texture, and then multiplying it by the color value of the tint. You can provide either one color value, in which case the whole Game Object will be tinted in that color. Or you can provide a color per corner. The colors are blended together across the extent of the Game Object.

To modify the tint color once set, either call this method again with new values or use the tint property to set all colors at once. Or, use the properties tintTopLeft, tintTopRight,tintBottomLeftandtintBottomRight` to set the corner color values independently.

To remove a tint call clearTint.

To swap this from being an additive tint to a fill based tint set the property tintFill to true.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
topLeft integer <optional>
0xffffff

The tint being applied to the top-left of the Game Object. If no other values are given this value is applied evenly, tinting the whole Game Object.

topRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the top-right of the Game Object.

bottomLeft integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-left of the Game Object.

bottomRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-right of the Game Object.

Since: 3.0.0

Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.RenderTexture

setTintFill( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Sets a fill-based tint on this Game Object.

Unlike an additive tint, a fill-tint literally replaces the pixel colors from the texture with those in the tint. You can use this for effects such as making a player flash 'white' if hit by something. You can provide either one color value, in which case the whole Game Object will be rendered in that color. Or you can provide a color per corner. The colors are blended together across the extent of the Game Object.

To modify the tint color once set, either call this method again with new values or use the tint property to set all colors at once. Or, use the properties tintTopLeft, tintTopRight,tintBottomLeftandtintBottomRight` to set the corner color values independently.

To remove a tint call clearTint.

To swap this from being a fill-tint to an additive tint set the property tintFill to false.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
topLeft integer <optional>
0xffffff

The tint being applied to the top-left of the Game Object. If not other values are given this value is applied evenly, tinting the whole Game Object.

topRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the top-right of the Game Object.

bottomLeft integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-left of the Game Object.

bottomRight integer <optional>

The tint being applied to the bottom-right of the Game Object.

snapshot(callback [, type] [, encoderOptions])

Takes a snapshot of the whole of this Render Texture.

The snapshot is taken immediately.

To capture just a portion of the Render Texture see the snapshotArea method. To capture a specific pixel, see snapshotPixel.

Snapshots work by using the WebGL readPixels feature to grab every pixel from the frame buffer into an ArrayBufferView. It then parses this, copying the contents to a temporary Canvas and finally creating an Image object from it, which is the image returned to the callback provided. All in all, this is a computationally expensive and blocking process, which gets more expensive the larger the canvas size gets, so please be careful how you employ this in your game.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
callback Phaser.Types.Renderer.Snapshot.SnapshotCallback

The Function to invoke after the snapshot image is created.

type string <optional>
'image/png'

The format of the image to create, usually image/png or image/jpeg.

encoderOptions number <optional>
0.92
