No, the goal is to create a grayscale mask. It's not an animated sequence, the animation is done by the shader.


@computerpost-ava
It doesn't work with flow-maps. The goal of this shader is to create a blending mask.

Nice shader, but I don't understand how do I exploit it to unreal, how do I export the animated mask ?

@fcazenabe The mask is just a grayscale texture so it's easy to export it, however you need a custom material/shader to use it in Unreal.
