Perlin Noise Generator

Recommended Posts

I couldn't help but notice that there are many PDN plugins that *utilize* Perlin noise, but none so far as I could tell, that generate it. Well, that's what this does. 

You can specify the size, and allowed angles of the underyling gradient that determines pixel color, as well as the color of the noise (default is black and white). 

 

It's not super glamorous, but I'm hoping cooler people than I who know how to use Perlin noise to make cool stuff can have an easier time now.

Additionally, feel free to strip the Perlin function from the source code to use for your own projects. The code can be viewed here. It's open source, so have at it!

 

The plugin will show up in Noise > Perlin Noise

 

Here's a kind of boring image of the output:

And here's a more exciting picture of colored output rendered as a map:

Use it for quick textures, procedural generated levels, whatever you need!

Hope it's useful :)

Pretty nifty plugin @zaya.  I quickly whipped this up from one of my flower shapes.

 

Background texture is your plugin; I added additional plugin effects to some of the other layers. Came out pretty good.

 

Thank you for the plugin!  :)
