Nope, no better - smooth though! We need someone else to test these too, as I suppose there's always a chance that I'm doing it wrong.
Dropping new files into OXZs ain't as simple as it once was.

@Cody: You are not doing it wrong, I have exactly the same symptom with all iterations of the shader and on a different gfx chip (you are running on NVidia, I am running on Intel HD).

You are not alone amigo!

Same behavior here with Intel HD 4K (edit: not tested v3 though yet). Will test with nVidia when possible.
Seems the stutter is happening when OOniverse is populated with objects.

EDIT #2: Tested with v3. Same behavior 2 quarters appear only. Some stutter when ooniverse populates. To explain:
1. effect starts
2. after a couple of seconds the effect stutters and gamma changes immediately (yes, because I have the sun in front of me)
3. effect continues almost perfectly (for the eye that doesn't look for a flaw)

Note that testing is performed with no other OXPs (just BGS and CCL).

Is the problem with this line:
Code:
float api = sqrt(cen.y/cen.x);
If either x or y are negative (but not both) you end up trying to take the square root of a negative number.

My fix based on kanthoney's idea and mixed together the old and new bgs_hyper.png for more colored effect.

Start:

End:

Misjump:

This was the previous effect for comparsion:

I can put into the BGS if no more problem.

Edit: new link with the final texture.

Wow, that looks spectacular, Norby. Good work!

Very nice, Norby, that works and looks great - but still has the stutter within the wormhole.

Suggestion: make the misjump more distinctive, as per the original - more red!

WOW :shock: ...

Not tried it yet but I suspect it would induce Dr.Who flashbacks (in a good way).
Awesome work folks :D

Looks great in-game - though perhaps a trifle too red now. Maybe I'll attempt to colourise it. <chortles> Thanks, Norby - very cool.
