What's this?

This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Texture.

It applies a formula based on the perlin noise. You could use it to create a texture and/or to distort a image.

Download the DLL

Plugin PerlinTexture.dll

The User interface

...As I'm French Technician (not a English/US scientist), how to explain that in english...

I've just managed to apply a User interface to a formula I've found on a forum, without analysing how it works really...

Alpha/Beta/Harmonics level:

The sum of harmonics:

Alpha: factor of attenuation for the next frequency, the more we decrease it the more the function is noisy.

Beta: spacing.

n = number of harmonics.

Reseed:

Change this value to run the effect with another random reference, 0 is always new random...

Mode:

Choose between Rainbow / Grey / Distort

Rainbow / Grey will create a texture colored or black & white.

Distort will affect the existing picture.

Range:

This is the color range value.

Mode Rainbow /Grey : lower = dark, higher = colorful.

Mode Distort : lower = few distortion, higher = lot of distortion.

Angle:

As the formula uses Sinus/Cosinus, you could affect the angle in the formula...

Orientation:

Normal / Switched Change the orientation of the formula as like as portrait/landscape for a piece of paper.

Scale:

Used to enlarge/reduce the result.

Effect Mix:

This is a slider to mix the final image with the orignal image to make the effect more or less subtile.

Some examples:

:00: OOOOOO! Me like it! Me will download it! Thank you a bunch for it! :star:

Edit: I immediately saw it being able to help me make more realistic glass distortion when I saw your model picture. Excellent plug-in, and it'll save me considerable time. *time to update one of my tutorials once again*

See what it can do?

Cool!

This result will be even better with the magnifier effect...
