This texture generator simulates rough plastering and stucco work. It allows for both subtle and excessive sculptural detail, with surface qualities ranging from carefully scraped gipsum to roughly smeared wet clay. Additionally, various degrees of erosion, surface chaos and material wetness are possible.Tips:- 'Detail Level' globally controls the noise detail of the filter. Keep this at zero unless you desperately need the additional detail. A setting of 100 provides glorious detail at double the render-time!- Set all sliders to zero value and experiment with one at a time to see what their effect is.- Use the 'Surface Height' slider to control the thickness of the plaster.- 'Smudge' controls the initial plaster distortion, 'Erode' the roughness of this distortion.- The 'Horizontal Chaos' and 'Vertical Chaos' sliders introduce additional chaos after the intitial noise distortion of 'Smudge' and 'Erode'. Use these to add finer irregularities to the surface.
