Perlin Noise by Miguel A Santiago Jr

Perlin Noise is a more advanced version of Mari's default Perlin giving more control options




The two colors that make up the final look of the procedural


Size of fractal features on your model

A random start value for your fractal.

Changing the seed changes the overall look of your fractal while the general feature look stays the same,

allowing for quick variation with a general look theme.


This Perlin Noise implementation lets you choose from 3 different noise types, each giving slightly different results with the same settings

Perlin, Simplex, Value

Defines the Value at which point the noise will be tipped towards color A (values to the left of the set slider value)

or color B (values to the right of the set slider value).

Clamps the noise calculation to a 0-1 range.

Color A/B are applied after the Clamping, so you can still set values above 1 if you choose to

however by clamping the Noise calculation the color mixing between the two colors works more

reliably. In general this should be left on.

Inverts the result of the noise. Inversion is done before color A and B are applied.


By default this procedural is generated in 3D World Space. This results in a seamless noise across UV seams.

By turning on UV Space the procedural is generated based on your UVs, resulting in seams between UV tiles/UDIM & uv shells.

Utilizing Transform Controls such as Scale (see below) you can apply a non-uniform transform to the procedural

to make use of specific UV layouts

Transform Scale

Will apply a scale along X,Y or Z to your noise. This is useful for creating patterns like woodgrain, drips etc.

When UV Space is turned on Scale Z is ignored.

Transform Rotate

Will apply a rotation in X,Y or Z to your noise. When UV Space is turned on Rotate X & Rotate Y are ignored

and rotation is done around the center of each UV Tile/UDIM using Rotate Z.

Transform Translate

Will apply an offset in X,Y or Z to your noise. When UV Space is turned on Translate Z is ignored.
