Solid Noise Examples
Varying the ratio of horizontal and vertical noise scale can produce significantly different effects. The top-right result is reminiscent of the Fibers filter in Photoshop, but Solid Noise allows the user to configure the specific ratio and Detail level.
Miscellaneous difference effects
Similar to Photoshop's Difference Clouds filter, The Solid Noise can apply Difference effects directly within the filter. Of course, more blending effects can be applied to Photoshop layers.
One distinction for Solid Noise is found when applying the difference effect to Liquid Distortion patterns. The two images on the left illustrate an inverted Liquid distortion where the lightning effect is enhanced via a simple Levels adjustment in the bottom image. Photoshop's Difference Clouds filter produces some lightning-like effects, but the above images are vibrant and clear.
Common patterns show diffuse or detailed noise. Adobe Photoshops "Clouds" filter corresponds a to large-scale, detailed pattern in the SolidNoise filter.
