Hannah Bollar CIS 700: Procedural Graphics Hw0
View the Project
I came up with one main noise animation that worked as expected; however, it broke when i was testing different features. While I was fixing it I came across two additional configurations that I found to be quite interesting. Picture 1 is the main view of my actual perlin noise generated animation in which there is time-based and position-based noise that fluctuates not only around each position but also across the sphere as a whole. Picture 2 is where I focused mainly on using my noise to generate color attributes and landed on a hexagonal spattering configuration. Picture 3 illustrates a symmetrical noise configuration that I found less based on time as in the first creation and instead more position based as the animation cycles through.
I ultimately ended up with about five different main perlin functions that I used as a combination between one another to create the different outcomes.
This will be updated later with more detailed walk throughs of the steps to how I built this project along with gifs depicting the features.
Regarding the features of this work, along with the pre-implemented fov slider to allow the user to pan around the page, I implemented two additional sliders. One that was a homework feature that allows the user to switch between the three different noise configurations depicted in the images above and the other (extra credit) loading up different materials into the shader in real time. The different materials are depicted below (on different figures to further illustrate the effect of noise on the surfaces).
