Turbulence Texture


The Turbulence texture generates a Procedural noise texture that has a different quality than the Noise texture (figure 1). In the following illustration, the NodeGraph Editor window is used to clearly illustrate the association of the various texture nodes.

Turbulence Texture Parameters



Controls overall texture brightness.



Shifts the Turbulence pattern in 3D space.



Sets the noise detail's scale.



Controls fractal pattern detail.


UVW Transform

Positions, scales, and rotates the surface texture.



Determines how the texture projects onto the surface.


Use Turbulence

Toggles the turbulent noise calculation, which multiplies against procedural noise.



Inverts the Noise texture values.


GammaThe function or attribute used to code or decode luminance for common displays. The computer graphics industry has set a standard gamma setting of 2.2 making it the most common default for 3D modelling and rendering applications.

Adjusts the Noise texture's luminance values.
