  • Yep, made it:

    Well, it seems easy but it's not 😬 But here is the idea.

    1. There are two crop frame types: square and 9x16.
    2. Decide minimum and maximum sizes for them.
    3. According to sizes, calculate minimum and maximum coordinates where the frame starts, and random size, make sure it will not out of the screen. Don't forget some paddings so the frame doesn't stick to the screen.
    4. Add some random values to position and size.
    5. Animate x, y, width, height of the frame.
    6. Take a shot by copyFrame() and cut a part of the texture according to coordinates.
    7. Show this part and keep the correct aspect ratio.
    8. Repeat.

    This part took about 500 lines of code.

    The second part is crop frame design, it's not a texture, but a custom shader that draws lines procedurally pixel-by-pixel, that's why the frame is never distorted and always looks sharp.
