In this session we explore the power of GLSL Shaders. We'll start with ways to source existing shaders from sources like GLSL Sandbox and ShaderToy and TroikaTronix's own GLSL Shader collection, move on to experiment with modifying shaders ourselves, and finally I'll show you a new, very nerdy (but very useful!) command line tool that will convert many of the existing shaders in the ISF Shaders format to the Isadora format. By the end of this tutorial, you'll be end up with new sources of imagery and palette of new effects for your toolbox.

About the "Guru" Sessions: Each session is a recording a live broadcast in which Isadora's creator Mark Coniglio takes you on a "deep-dive" into one of Isadora's many features.
