This SOP creates additional detail on the interior surfaces of fractured geometry, which can be used to produce more interesting high resolution geometry. The amount of noise added to the points can be scaled based on their distance from the original surface.
The Transform Pieces SOP can be used to transform high resolution pieces according to the motion of simulated low resolution pieces.
The geometry to add interior detail to.
Optional input to pass through constraint geometry (for example, from the Voronoi Fracture SOP).
Optional input to pass through proxy geometry.
Optional SDF for Depth Sampling
An optional SDF Volume, usually created by IsoOffset, to use for depth sampling when scaling the amount of noise added to the geometry. If not connected, this node will generate a default one.
The high-resolution geometry.
The constraint geometry from the Constraint Network input.
The geometry from the Proxy Geometry input, or the original Geometry input if no proxy geometry already exists.
Specifies the primitives to add detail to. Typically, this group should contain only the interior polygons created by the fracturing process so that the original surface is not affected.
Specifies whether the interior surface should be divided according to the Detail Size. Disabling this allows noise to be applied to interior surfaces that do not need any further subdivision.
The size of the polygons added to the interior surfaces.
Compute Interior Normals
Computes vertex normals on the edges of the interior geometry, so that they will have a cusped appearance.
Interior Cusp Angle
Computes vertex normals on the edges of the interior geometry with angles greater than this angle, so that they will have a cusped appearance.
Triangulate Non-Planar Detail
Triangulates any non-planar polygons produced while adding detail.
Scales the amount of displacement.
The type of noise added to the interior points.
The frequency of the noise. Higher values give smaller scaled details in the noise.
The offset of the input into the noise function. If you visualize the noise as a 2D graph or 3D height field, this has the effect of "panning" across the space of possible noise outputs. If you have the general noise effect you want but just want to get a different set of values for a different look, try changing the offset.
Does not add any additional noise on top of the basic noise.
Adds pseudo-random noise on top of the basic output.
Adds noise like "Standard" but dampens the noise in the valleys, which can be useful for generating mountainous terrain.
Like terrain, but with more sharpness in the valleys.
The number of iterations of distortion to add to the output of the basic noise. The more iterations you add, the more "detailed" the output. Note that the output may have fewer octaves than this parameter (that is, increasing the parameter will eventually stop adding detail), because the node eventually stops when there’s no more room to add more detail in the output.
The frequency increment between iterations of fractal noise added to the basic output. Note that you can use a negative value.
The scale increment between iterations of fractal noise added to the basic output. The higher the value the larger the "jaggies" added to the output. You can use a negative value for roughness.
Enable Lattice Warp
Adds "stringiness" or "wiriness" to standard noise.
Accumulate Lattice Warp
When Lattice Warp is on, this accumulates the warp for each iteration (octave) of added fractal noise. When used in images, this can add interesting smudgy effects, and interesting landmarks when used for terrain.
Enable Gradient Warp
Enalbes a slider to widen the peaks or valleys of the noise output.
Accumulate Gradient Warp
When Enable Gradient Warp is on, this accumulates the warp for each iteration (octave) of added fractal noise.
Visualize Noise Scale
Adds color to the geometry to indicate the amount of noise applied at each point.
Depth Volume Resolution
Resolution of the default depth sampling SDF. The amplitude of the noise added to the interior points is scaled by the depth of the point within the surface of the original geometry, calculated by sampling an SDF of the geometry. If an SDF is not connected to the fourth input of the SOP, a default one will be created at this resolution.
Clamp Displacement Amount to Depth
Limit the amount of displacement done at a point by its depth within the surface.
When adding high amplitude noise to the interior points, it’s possible that the interior surface could interpenetrate the exterior. This option will clamp the amount of displacement at a particular point by the depth within the surface.
Clamp Depth Percentage
The percentage of the depth within the surface to which the displacement should be clamped.
Because an SDF is not a perfect representation of depth, this option allows you to clamp to a percentage of the depth. Lowering this can guarantee no interpenetration, at the expense of more clamping of the interior noise.
Use Depth/Noise Ramp
Use a ramp control for more precise control of the depth/noise mapping.
The value for the bias curve that maps depth within the surface to the amplitude of the noise applied.
The ramp that maps from depth within the surface to the amplitude of the noise applied.
