Background Designer - V0.64a


Background Designer 

Paint with pre-made full-colour assets, use the colour shader to change the colours of these assets where the primary channels are 'swapped' out for your own colour scheme!

Recently added a pixel shader effect using a LUT and Pixel effect to make some C64 style pixel work!
