Procedural Design <=> The Art of Simple Rules


Introduction To Simple Rules of Noise Modulation

Let us begin by presenting a simple image composed of 256 x 256 random black and white pixels.

256 x 256 random black and white pixels

Let us now present a second image, different from the first, yet still composed of 256 x 256 random black and white pixels.

256 x 256 random black and white pixels

Here is a new image made from the first two images, as two layers which are then merged down or flattened into one, with the opacity of the second layer — of the second image — at 50%.

More noise???!

Let’s try something else. This time, let’s take the first image of a 256 x 256 square of random black and white pixels, and add a copy of itself as second layer, then Invert the second layer, and flatten with opacity of the second layer at 50%. What do you think happens?

What happened to the Noise???!

Thus concludes our first lesson. I posted Noise, then Noise a second time. I posted a combination of the two first Noises. I concluded by posting a combination of the first Noise with an inverse of itself.

Think about it and get back to me.
