Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your reply. In case of the layout device some inputs correspond to the values that can be set inside (see first post). Others are not obvious for me.
I really like world machine and it's flexibility and I most probably will end up writing macros as well. So some of the entries might be useful.

I also started a detailed documentation that I'd like to share here when it reaches a certain quality level.

Thanks for providing this software

best regards

Hi there,

The top inputs correspond to the parameters you can set in the device's GUI; they are intended/most useful for when you are building macros and need to allow parameters inside the macro to be set from the outside.

I would simply set these values through the GUI unless you have a compelling reason to do otherwise!

In general, I wonder if there is any information regarding these inputs on top of the devices available. Also for other devices.

I didn't find any information so far, but I wonder, how the control inputs of the layout device work.

I know I need a number, so I drive the input with a parameter device.

- I have no idea what Strength Method is for.
- Quality takes numbers from 0 to 3 and refers to Precision vs Speed settings
- Breakup Enable is a toggle. 0 is off, 1 is on.
- I didn't find the reference to Shape Breakup. Every time I set a value there, the fractal breakup changes to zero.
- The same happens with Shape Frequency. Everytime I set a value, the breakup scale changes to zero as well.
- Shape Roughness corresponds with the roughness value (1 to 6)
- I have no idea what Background Value is for.

Is there a documentation about that somewhere? Can someone enlighten me?  :lol:
