I am attempting to visualize a "distortion" effect, and I believe it possible with the right combination of effects.

Sadly, my overall knowledge of what can and should be done with complex visual design is greatly hindering my overall quality.  I was wondering if anyone out here would be kind enough to share with me some "easy to moderate" level tricks I can use that don't include:

Shaking the Screen (Already In)

Tinting The Screen (Already In)

Causing NPC Movement During The Effect (All Good)

Intense and Overlapping (but not in a bad way) SE's and ME's.  (Done)

Anything, including visual engine scripts that I can learn, all advice is appreciated.  I'm working on a visual novel, and I really need any tricks I can toss into my bag.   :rock-left:

Could you be more specific in terms of what 'distortion effect' means and give a screenshot or two?

I'm presuming you mean something like a blurred or cracked screen, etc.

It's kind of hard to describe what it has evolved into now, but this is essentially what happens right now.

That is the event.  Below is the "Distortion Effect", and the second one is immediately after the "Flash".  Right now I'm okay with how it looks, but any helpful tips would be wonderful.   :rock-left:

Thank you for the vote of confidence.   :D    I will go over that entire post, and see if there is anything I can use to make it better.   :rock-left:
