This is my first topic post here and I wanted to show some stuff I’ve been working on and would love some feedback.
I’m working to create a moderately large pack of CRT overlays, but I’d like some help from the community with supplying some good images to work from. Each of the current overlays has an optional screen-glare variation. They’re designed for 960x720 4:3 @ 1080p and the CRT-Pi Curved shader (though any CRT shader should work.)
All of the pictures below were taken directly on my Pi 3 B+ using raspi2png and look exactly as it does in RetroArch on the Pi (and pretty much any other RetroArch platform.) (Scanlines can show weird moire patterns when downscaled, so please click the images for full size.)
I’m still working to perfect these, and once I get a good groove going, it will be trivial to expand the library of overlays. I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

To use these overlays, you will need to place the CRT folder in your overlay folder on your Pi:
You will then be able to access them from the Quick Menu.
Retroarch Video Settings:
|Custom Aspect Ratio X Pos||480|
|Custom Aspect Ratio Y Pos||180|
|Custom Aspect Ratio Width||960|
|Custom Aspect Ratio Height||720|
Most of these overlays need a curved CRT shader to avoid cropping too much in the image corners. On my RetroPie setup, I use the CRT-Pi Curved shader with most settings at default, and this change:
|Screen Curvature Vertical||0.25|
