Help! help! I desperately need a distance based fog!

I want to achieve a fog effect similar to League of Legends. The fog gradually disappears within the specified radius of the character, and nothing can be seen outside the radius.
I’m trying to use a custom shader, since I don’t know anything about GLSL, I haven’t been able to convert the coordinates of people in the 3D world, to screen coordinates in the fragment shader

Fog in three.js

what i want

I assume you want to create something like a cloud where a mesh inside is hidden? You can create a fog mesh check whatever is intersected/inside gets the effect and is then hidden with object3d.visible = false.

Hiding the fog? This is a path I never imagined, do you have an example, I am looking forward to seeing it, thank you very much.

This is a kind of screen-based fog, not 3D-world-based fog. I think it is related to the vignette postprocessing effect. I might have seen vignette effect for Three.js somewhere in Github, although I have never used it.

In any case, if everything else fails, you can try to do the fog without Three.js. Here is a live demo:



Wow, worship Daniel, this is a simpler and faster way, which I never thought of, thank you very much for the code

in that case, if this is an option for you, drei/meshportalmaterial would effortlessly be able to do it:

it wouldn’t be more than this

  <circleGeometry />
  <MeshPortalMaterial blur={0.5}>
    <YourModelHere />

Oh no, I don’t know why, but when I open this page, it’s blank.

This solution is not feasible, because I found that the platform I am currently using only allows one canvas element to appear, and other elements are not allowed to appear. I now want to add a radial gradient to the front of the camera, with transparent center and solid color around.

If you cannot use a second HTML element*, then implement the gradient as a texture, map it to a plane and put the plane just in front of the camera.

* Honestly, I have never seen a platform so restrictive, that it allows only a single HTML element to show up.

Thanks a lot, I have implemented this functionality with your idea, thanks PavelBoytchev.
About the platform: This platform refers to the WeChat “small program” platform. The technology of this platform is very limited, and I am still stepping on the pit step by step~

Instead of rendering as a texture, I chose to do the radial gradient in the fragment shader, because I also want to control the size of the radial gradient, lol.
