What's this?

This is a noise generator that uses repeatable patterns and smooth formula. Two levels of grid: pattern and cell sizes.



Download it!

Plugin SmoothNoise.dll

ar.png Here is the DLL http://jcljay.free.fr/pdn/SmoothNoise.zip 


The MadJik's All plugins package is available!




How to install

Close Paint.net


Classic version of Paint.net

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually:

C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects (please reverse / for correct path)


Microsoft Store version of Paint.net

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually:

My Documents/paint.net App Files/Effects (please reverse / for correct path)


You have to adapt for your language My Documents



The User interface

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



Noise width / height

Set the field of the randomized noise pattern.



0 is random free. Other values will give the same random pattern (one unique pattern per value).


Noise mode

Smooth is a formula to give pseudo random values.

Turbulences mode uses normal random generator and the cells aren’t regular.


Cell width / height

Set the size of the cell of the grain.


Effect Mix

The source image is mixed with the rendered noise.

0% no effect, 100% no source.



You could apply a gaussian blur effect (because cells are too regular).



Gray levels are replaced by colors.


TV Noise

If checked, it adds some horizontal duration to the random values the result “could” be compared to a bad signal on (old) TV.



Add a grid with primary color to show the noise pattern size.



The Examples:







Voilà! Enjoy!

Here's a simple example.  This plugin would be great for making background and textures.


Everyone take their pill and you'll be 'right as rain'!   :lol:
