 vec3 hueShift( vec3 color, float hueAdjust ){ const vec3 kRGBToYPrime = vec3 (0.299, 0.587, 0.114); const vec3 kRGBToI = vec3 (0.596, -0.275, -0.321); const vec3 kRGBToQ = vec3 (0.212, -0.523, 0.311); const vec3 kYIQToR = vec3 (1.0, 0.956, 0.621); const vec3 kYIQToG = vec3 (1.0, -0.272, -0.647); const vec3 kYIQToB = vec3 (1.0, -1.107, 1.704); float YPrime = dot (color, kRGBToYPrime); float I = dot (color, kRGBToI); float Q = dot (color, kRGBToQ); float hue = atan (Q, I); float chroma = sqrt (I * I + Q * Q); hue += hueAdjust; Q = chroma * sin (hue); I = chroma * cos (hue); vec3 yIQ = vec3 (YPrime, I, Q); return vec3( dot (yIQ, kYIQToR), dot (yIQ, kYIQToG), dot (yIQ, kYIQToB) ); }

Thank you so much for this! Contrary to what you seem to think though, your original function produces much more natural looking/beautiful results than the cheaper hueshift function provided by @viruseg.

I had the same conclusion. The idea to use Rodrigues rotation formula is clever, but the problem is that the RGB to YIQ translation isn't a pure rotation. It also has skew and scaling components. So the output won't be the same.

The most compact version I could come up with, with some symbolic manipulation (along the same lines as Rodrigues' but replacing the cross product), that should be equivalent, is:

```vec3 hue_shift(vec3 color, float dhue) {
float s = sin(dhue);
float c = cos(dhue);
return (color * c) + (color * s) * mat3(
vec3(0.167444, 0.329213, -0.496657),
vec3(-0.327948, 0.035669, 0.292279),
vec3(1.250268, -1.047561, -0.202707)
) + dot(vec3(0.299, 0.587, 0.114), color) * (1.0 - c);
}```

(Godot shader, but should be compatible to GLSL)

vmedea, thank you for the code.

@l375cd It doesn't do anything with alpha channel, so just use GLSL swizzling to only pass in the RGB channels, and then re-apply the alpha channel to the result. Something like the pseudo-code below.

```in vec2 texCoord;
out vec4 outFrag;

uniform sampler2D image;
uniform float hue

void main()
vec4 color = texture(image, texCoord);
outFrag = vec4(hueShift(color.rgb, hue), color.a);
}```

@ForeverZer0, thank you so much!

Will it work with sRGB color format, or should I convert my color to RGB before using this function?

My version of hue shift I did for some codegolf shader.

```vec3 h(vec3 c, float s){
return c * mat3(c = .66 * cos(s + vec3(0, 2.09, 4.18)) + .33, c.zxy, c.yzx);
}```
