Wave Texture Node

../../../_images/render_shader-nodes_textures_wave_node.png

Wave Texture Node.

The Wave Texture node adds procedural bands or rings with noise distortion.

Inputs

Vector

Texture coordinate to sample texture at; defaults to Generated texture coordinates if the socket is left unconnected.

Scale

Overall texture scale.

Distortion

Amount of distortion of the wave (similar to the Marble texture in Blender Internal).

Detail

Amount of distortion noise detail.

Detail Scale

Scale of distortion noise.

Phase Offset

Position of the wave along the Bands Direction. This can be used as an input for an additional control over distortion.

Properties

Type

Bands or Rings shaped waves.

Bands/Rings Direction

The axis the bands or rings propagate from i.e. which axis they are perpendicular to. When using Bands a Diagonal axis is an option and when using Rings the rings can propagate outwards from a single point by using Spherical direction.

Wave Profile

Controls the look of the wave type.

Saw

Uses a sawtooth profile.

Sine

Uses the standard sine profile.

Outputs

Color

Texture color output.

Factor

Texture intensity output.
