NAME

terrain - Generate terrain field from mathematical noise

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

terrain [-w x_postings] [-n y_postings] [-s xy_postings] [-L noise_Lacunarity] [-H noise_H_value] [-O noise_octaves] [-o noise_offset] [-S noise_scale] [-V noise_Vector_scale] [-D noise_Delta] [-f noise_function] [-c host/net format conversion off] > file.dsp

DESCRIPTION

The terrain program produces pseudo-terrain from procedural noise suitable for use with a BRL-CAD dsp primitive. Noise values are computed for the grid points of the lattice and the resultant values are output on the standard output as unsigned shorts in network byte order. The size of the grid is specified with the -w and -n options.

OPTIONS

-w grid_x_postings

Specifies the number of grid points in the X dimension. Default is 256.

-n grid_y_postings

Specifies the number of grid points in the Y dimension. Default is 256.

-c

Turns of the conversion of the data from host to network format. This only has an effect on little-endian machines.

-v

Turns on verbose mode. Information about which filter is running is printed.

-f noise_type

Selects the type of noise field to be used. Options include

L

A lunar-like surface.

f

Fractional Brownian motion (fBm).

t

Turbulence.

T

Turbulence inverted: 1.0 - turb(pt).

m

A Multi-fractal.

r

A Ridged multi-fractal.

    Noise Options

-O noise_octaves

Specifies the number of octaves of noise to layer. Typical values are 2 through 8. $0.

-L noise_Lacunarity

Specifies the scaling factor between successive octaves of noise. Practical values are non-integer numbers between 1.7 and 4.0.

-H noise_H_val

Specifies the value of H in the noise equation. Usually 1.0

-S noise_scale

Scales the noise uniformly in X, Y and Z dimensions by the value noise_scale. Values below 1.0 cause the noise pattern to become smaller. Values above 1.0 cause it to get bigger

-V scale_x,scale_y,scale_z

Allows non-uniform scaling of the X, Y and Z dimensions. See -S above.

-D delta_x,delta_y,delta_z

Specifies a translation in noise space to be
