Saw, Sine, And Triangle Wave Procedural


The Sine Wave, Saw Wave and Triangle Wave textures can create various banding effects. A Transform node is often connected to the Wave Tex node's Transform pin in order to provide better results across a surface (Figure 1).

The primary difference between the three wave types is in the way they render the edges of the waves (figures 2 - 4).
