Title: Libnoise ~ makes planetary textures ~ sort of ...

Stumbled upon this, could be quite useful in the right hands.

Libnoise (http://libnoise.sourceforge.net/index.html)

Planetary Texture Image (http://libnoise.sourceforge.net/examples/complexplanet/images/planet.jpg)

Complex Planet (http://libnoise.sourceforge.net/examples/complexplanet/index.html)

Unfortunately its only a set of library's, needs a developer to take it further.

Quote from: Libnoise website quoteNote: libnoise does not generate images, it only generates coherent-noise values. It is up to the programmer to use these values to generate images.


What do you think?

Have you tried any of these things?

I would only guess that the noise functions are rudimentary to what Matt has already been utilizing inside of his programming.

[Edit - after looking through a little of what this is about, this is very cool stuff.  Thanks.]
