Class: BaseRenderTexture

PIXI.BaseRenderTexture

A BaseRenderTexture is a special texture that allows any PixiJS display object to be rendered to it.

Hint: All DisplayObjects (i.e. Sprites) that render to a BaseRenderTexture should be preloaded otherwise black rectangles will be drawn instead.

A BaseRenderTexture takes a snapshot of any Display Object given to its render method. The position and rotation of the given Display Objects is ignored. For example:

let renderer = PIXI.autoDetectRenderer();
let baseRenderTexture = new PIXI.BaseRenderTexture({ width: 800, height: 600 });
let renderTexture = new PIXI.RenderTexture(baseRenderTexture);
let sprite = PIXI.Sprite.from("spinObj_01.png");

sprite.position.x = 800/2;
sprite.position.y = 600/2;
sprite.anchor.x = 0.5;
sprite.anchor.y = 0.5;

renderer.render(sprite, renderTexture);

The Sprite in this case will be rendered using its local transform. To render this sprite at 0,0 you can clear the transform


sprite.setTransform()

let baseRenderTexture = new PIXI.BaseRenderTexture({ width: 100, height: 100 });
let renderTexture = new PIXI.RenderTexture(baseRenderTexture);

renderer.render(sprite, renderTexture);  // Renders to center of RenderTexture

Extends

Members

_batchEnabled number inherited

Number of the texture batch, used by multi-texture renderers

_canvasRenderTarget object protected

A reference to the canvas render target (we only need one as this can be shared across renderers)

anisotropicLevel number inherited

Anisotropic filtering level of texture

Default Value:
  • PIXI.settings.ANISOTROPIC_LEVEL

cacheId string inherited

Currently default cache ID.

destroyed boolean readonly inherited

Flag if BaseTexture has been destroyed.

dirtyId number readonly inherited

Used by TextureSystem to only update texture to the GPU when needed. Please call update() to increment it.

dirtyStyleId number protected inherited

Used by TextureSystem to only update texture style when needed.

filterStack Array.<PIXI.Graphics>

The data structure for the filters.

The pixel format of the texture

Default Value:
  • PIXI.FORMATS.RGBA

hasLoaded boolean Deprecated : since 5.0.0 readonly inherited

See:

height number readonly inherited overrides

The height of the base texture set when the image has loaded

imageUrl string Deprecated : since 5.0.0 readonly inherited

See:
  • PIXI.resource.ImageResource#url

isPowerOfTwo boolean readonly inherited

Whether or not the texture is a power of two, try to use power of two textures as much as you can

Pixel height of the source of this texture

realWidth number readonly inherited

Pixel width of the source of this texture

resolution number inherited

The resolution / device pixel ratio of the texture

Default Value:
  • PIXI.settings.RESOLUTION

The scale mode to apply when scaling this texture

Default Value:
  • PIXI.settings.SCALE_MODE

The data structure for the stencil masks.

The target type

Default Value:
  • PIXI.TARGETS.TEXTURE_2D

textureCacheIds Array.<string> readonly inherited

The collection of alternative cache ids, since some BaseTextures can have more than one ID, short name and longer full URL

touched number protected inherited

Used by automatic texture Garbage Collection, stores last GC tick when it was bound

The type of resource data

Default Value:
  • PIXI.TYPES.UNSIGNED_BYTE

uid string protected inherited

Global unique identifier for this BaseTexture

valid boolean readonly inherited overrides

Generally speaking means when resource is loaded.

width number readonly inherited overrides

The width of the base texture set when the image has loaded

wrapMode number inherited

How the texture wraps

Methods

Destroys this texture.

Frees the texture and framebuffer from WebGL memory without destroying this texture object. This means you can still use the texture later which will upload it to GPU memory again.

Fires:

Get the drawable source, such as HTMLCanvasElement or HTMLImageElement suitable for rendering with CanvasRenderer. Provided by @pixi/canvas-renderer package.

Returns:
Type Description
PIXI.ICanvasImageSource Source to render with CanvasRenderer

loadSource () Deprecated : since 5.0.0 inherited

resize (width, height)

Resizes the BaseRenderTexture.

Name Type Description
width number

The width to resize to.

height number

The height to resize to.

setRealSize (realWidth, realHeight, resolution)PIXI.BaseTexture inherited

Sets real size of baseTexture, preserves current resolution.

Name Type Description
realWidth number

Full rendered width

realHeight number

Full rendered height

resolution number optional

Optionally set resolution

Returns:
Type Description
PIXI.BaseTexture this

setResolution (resolution)PIXI.BaseTexture inherited

Changes resolution

Name Type Description
resolution number optional

res

Returns:
Type Description
PIXI.BaseTexture this

Sets the resource if it wasn't set. Throws error if resource already present

Name Type Description
resource PIXI.resources.Resource

that is managing this BaseTexture

Returns:
Type Description
PIXI.BaseTexture this

setSize (width, height, resolution)PIXI.BaseTexture inherited

Changes w/h/resolution. Texture becomes valid if width and height are greater than zero.

Name Type Description
width number

Visual width

height number

Visual height

resolution number optional

setStyle (scaleMode, mipmap)PIXI.BaseTexture inherited

Changes style options of BaseTexture

Name Type Description
scaleMode PIXI.SCALE_MODES optional

Pixi scalemode

mipmap PIXI.MIPMAP_MODES optional

enable mipmaps

Returns:
Type Description
PIXI.BaseTexture this

Invalidates the object. Texture becomes valid if width and height are greater than zero.
