Generates a height field using either a radial, a linear, a square, or a rectangular gradient that can be placed simply via the operator object's position. Useful for e.g. placing single mountains, or lakes, long slopes, or walls. The gradient can be freely remapped using a spline curve GUI. The Gradient Operator supports Distortion.
A round gradient, defined by distance to the operator object. Suitable for e.g. placing single mountains or lakes.
A linear gradient along the operator object's Z axis. Suitable for walls, and long slopes.
A square gradient.
A rectangular gradient.
This curve defines the profile of the gradient by mapping a relative distance from the operator object to a resulting altitude value.
For radial gradients, this value defines the gradient's radius.
For linear, square, and rectangular gradients, this value defines the gradient's width.
For rectangular gradients, this value defines the gradient's length.
By randomly displacing the sample coordinates, aka. Distortion, gradients can look more natural and interesting.
Strength of the distortion.
This changes the direction into which the sample coordinates are displaced.
Changes the scale of the displacement pattern.
