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.
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!
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: Thanks
