This page contains information about the V-Ray Splat Texture.

 

Overview


The V-Ray Splat Texture is a procedural texture that mimics a splatter effect similar to the way paint can splatter onto a surface. Both of the two colors channels can be connected to texture maps.

Node


The TexSplat node provides inputs for controlling various texture properties. They correspond to parameters in the section below.

 


 

 

Settings


 

 

Color 1 – Controls the color of the main surface.

Color 2 – Controls the color of the splatters.

Size – Controls the scale of the procedural texture produced. For more details, see the Size example below.

Iterations – Controls how many times the procedural repeats the process. For more details, see the Iterations example below.

Threshold – Determines how much of Color 1 is mixed with Color 2. At 0, only Color 1 is displayed; at 1, only Color 2 is displayed. For more details, see the Threshold example below.

Smoothing – Controls the sharpness of the splatters. Lower values make the splatters sharper, higher values make them more blurry. For more details, see the Smoothing example below.

 

Color Tweaks





Mult – Specifies a strength multiplier for the texture color.

Offset – Color corrects the texture by adding the the RGB color values specified here to the RGB color values in the texture.

Invert – When enabled, inverts the resulting texture color.

Alpha Tweaks




Source – Specifies where the alpha channel is drawn from.

Alpha – Alpha channel is drawn from the texture.
Color 
– Alpha is generated from pixel intensity.
Opaque
– Alpha channel is fully opaque.

Use – Differentiate between textures exported from different applications. You can choose between Color Intensity (3ds Max) and Color Luminance (Maya).

Mult – Specifies a multiplier for the texture alpha.

Offset – Specifies an additional offset for the texture alpha.

Invert – When enabled and Invert from Color Tweaks is also enabled, the resulting texture alpha is inverted as well.


Placement





Placement Type – Specifies the way the valid portion of the texture is applied.

Full – Uses the full valid portion of the texture.
Crop – Allows the user to specify a section of the texture using the parameters below.
Place – Allows the user to specify a section of the texture and how to place it using the parameters below.

U – Specifies the U coordinate of the valid texture sector.

V – Specifies the V coordinate of the valid texture sector.

W – Specifies the width of the valid texture sector.

H – Specifies the height of the valid texture sector.

Jitter – Controls the amount of random placement variation.

Tile U – Enables horizontal tiling.

Tile V – Enables vertical tiling.

UV Noise




Enabled – Enables noise for the texture.

Amount – Specifies the amount of noise to add to the texture.

Levels – Specifies the amount of noise iterations.

Size – Controls the scale of the noise.

Animated – Enables the noise to be animated.

Phase – Controls the noise phase.
