Anti-Aliasing Perlin Noise

Perlin noise is a key function in writing procedural shaders, but it is prone to aliasing. Integrating it can dramatically reduce artifacts.


Flow Noise

Enhanced Perlin noise (rotating gradients so animated textures flow better) and using pseudoadvection to improve noise turbulence is improved by pseudoadvection. Results are flexible, efficient, and attractive. Examples include: flowing water, fire, clouds, smoke, and lava.


Organic Textures With Controlled Anisotropy and Directionality

A method of generating organic textures that first tessellates a region into a set of polygons and then generates detailed geometry for each of them.

2D vector graphics provide high resolution, low memory requirements, and scalable images, and they can be adaptively rasterised at suitable resolutions to texture 3D objects in RenderMan.


Shadermaps: A Method For Accelerating Procedural Shading

Shadermaps are a new method for accelerating procedural shading, driven by the observation that the visual complexity of most objects is due to their static surface appearance.
