[APh] Procedural Generators request. (Very important for texturing work.)

Recommended Posts

Hi Affinity, 

I just wanted to add a request for procedural generators like the kind you find in Photoshop or Pixelmator. Clouds, Fibers, Stained Glass, etc. Those are incredibly useful for texturing work especially when they're customizable. (Changing cell thickness for example.) 

Here is an example of why they're so useful. Below is a picture of artist Richard Yot using Photoshops Stained Glass filter in combination with its displace filter to create a procedural leather texture for a 3D software package. yqKbwd9.jpg

Filter Forge is a great plugin (I use it myself), but Chrono is correct: having access to a couple of procedural texture generators, even basic ones, is an incredibly worthwhile and useful addition for all sorts of work and these procedural textures often serve as a base for a multitude of effects and compositing work.

 

Here is an example of a built-in procedural texture editor for inspiration. Clouds and basic noise generators are just the start. These could also be tremendously useful for Designer. The point is that these would be infinitely adjustable and applicable as live effects as well.

Ironically I bought Affinity Photo as I'm also doing the Richard Yot tutorial and need the stained glass filter. I can't afford Photoshop. Bit disappointed as I've got Serif Photoplus X6 and this has a stained glass filter although the result isn't quite the same as Photoshop.

I would also welcome some procedural texture / pattern generator they would be very useful for texture work.

And I’m doing this post just to activate “notify me on replies” for this thread.

Weird there isn’t a button to activate that without posting.

There's a 'Follow' button near the top of the page, just to the right of the thread title. detective.gif

Thanks for your answer Alfred!

Do you know if this button appears in iPhone’s Safari? I can’t find it here.

 

Edit: I found it now, it is on the very bottom.
