Splatter (Color)

In: Generators/Patterns



Splatter is a pattern generator intended for random placement of a map input. It has many controls for geometrically patterned placement, and is simpler in use than Tile Generator. The latter can achieve similar results, but is much more complex.

Splatter works well for quickly getting some shapes stamped down, without needing too much tweaking.

Keep in mind that the default Splatter parameters do not look random at all: you need to tweak a few of them to get randomisation (mainly Disorder parameters). Also keep in mind that Splatter requires a map input to work.

  • Pattern Size Width0.0 - 1000.0
    Number of patterns to use on the X-axis.
  • Pattern Size Height0.0 - 1000.0
    Number of patterns to use on the Y-axis.
  • Rotation-360.0 - 360.0
    Rotates every pattern by a set amount.
  • Rotation Variation0.0 - 360.0
    Introduces random rotation for every separate shape.
  • Zoom100.0 - 10000.0
    Scales up the final result. Keep in mind that this breaks tiling!
  • Gain0.0 - 10.0
    Adjusts blending gain of every pattern. Makes them stand out more.
  • Pan X-100.0 - 100.0
    Pans whole result on X-axis.
  • Pan Y-100.0 - 100.0
    Pans whole result on Y-axis.
  • Disorder0.0 - 100.0
    Randomly shifts shapes.
  • Grid Number0 - 8
    Jumps through different grid sizes to adjust result scale. Maintains tiling.
  • Disorder Angle0.0 - 360.0
    Controls the angle of disorder shifting.
  • Disorder RandomFalse/True
    Randomises the disorder angle, adding much more chaos.
  • Pattern Size5 - 12
  • Size Variation0.0 - 100.0
    Introduces random scaling for every shape.
  • Image Input Filtering (Engine > v4 only)Bilinear + Mipmaps, Bilinear, Nearest
    Which filtering to apply to the input image.
  • Output Level Min0.0 - 1.0
    Out minimum level adjustment.
  • Output Level Max0.0 - 1.0
    Out maximum level adjustment.
  • Background Color(Grayscale value)
    Sets solid background color.
  • Luminance Variation0.0 - 1.0 (Grayscale version only)
    Introduces luminance variation.
  • Color Variation0.0 - 1.0 (Color Version Only)
    Introduces color variation.
