View Full Version : Procedurals problem

01 January 2002, 08:50 PM
Im having an annoying problem with my procedural textures, and I can't get rid of it! :(
Its the falloff, no matter what percentage I put as falloff, it never falls off(well it probably does, but not the way I want it ;) ) ! I don't get it, i've tried changing the grid size but that doesnt work!

As for my latest scene, im using a landscape and want a procedural to end at a certain level. The height of the displacement maps are 11m ( I think)
but when I put the falloff to 100, nothing happens, and even when I move the center of the procedural around it never falls off completely!
Gaah, im going crazy soon! (or im just tired :P )

try using gradients instead of falloff.

doesn't work either :(

im kind of curious of whats wrong with my LW, even at 10000% falloff in the Y axis it doesn't fall off at a high speed at all!

Plz help

Maybe you should post the scene in a zip file so someone else can load it into Lightwave and see what they can do to help you. Without more specific and detailed information it's really difficult to guess what your problem might be.

Use a Gradient with the Blending Mode set to Alpha. Set the Input Parameter to Slope. You can use different Input Parameters, but the key is the Alpha Gradient here.
