Retro Pixellation Perfection

ProDither allows users to create old video game looks with the drag of the mouse.  First bump the “Pixellation Amount” slider to recreate the look of an 8-bit video game.  Next adjust the “Dither Amount” to achieve greater details within the scene.  Lastly, adjust the “Saturation” slider to dull colors and match throwback looks.

Random Quantization Error Methods

Use the ProDither OSC position control to change the dither pattern when applied to the scene.  Move the on-screen control toward the bottom left corner for large, square-shaped patterns.  Moving the on-screen control toward the top left corner to create vertical dither patterns.  Lastly, moving the on-screen control toward the bottom right corner will create horizontal dither patterns.

Layer Controls

Let’s begin by adjusting the saturation and brightness sliders in the layer 1 controls section. After making those adjustments move on to the Layer 2 Controls section. Start by adjusting the dither amount and posterize amount. Finally you can control how pixelated your image becomes by moving the Pixellation Amount slider to the right or left. Once you have adjusted each slider take ProDither even further by adding another preset to create a new authentic look.
