Panel: Random Settings

 

Random values, which are generated by algorithms, are deterministic. This means that for a specific input value there are always the same output values.

Control that input value with the Random Seed parameter. Keeping this parameter unchanged will cause Texture Maker to generate the same pattern. If you enable the Auto Change Seed switch, a new Seed value will be used every time you run the function.

The Time Offset value controls a function dependent modification of the output (e.g. shifting of the rendered objects). This allows you to create animated textures. For example the waves of the Generator/Water move, if you increase the parameter.

Press the Record Animation button to open the Animation Recorder with the current function selected.
