Cursor Position Creates Pattern in Material

Greetings folks!

I’m looking for a material that interactively create swirly/stoner/psychedelic visuals based on the cursor position. Any help on where I should start?

Thank you all!

On the UI?

Sounds to me like you want to look into render targets and draw mechanics.
Here’s some info that might put you on the right track:

Additionally I think that Niagara could be very helpful in this instance and is definitely worth looking into since you can spawn particles based off positions or textures etc, and then add a swirl pattern to it.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for that, it will certainly help me in my quest!
