Author Topic: Exposing Random Seed  (Read 909 times)

Hey folks! I am trying to expose the Random Seed on Wood Fibers 1 and I can't quite figure out how to get it parameterized. I am new to making custom parameters and editing existing ones so if anyone could share a walkthrough or a step-by-step I would really appreciate it!

Thank you!

You want to modify the random seed of a single node within the graph ?

* create a new "input tweak"
* assign type as Integer1
* enable Clamp
* set default to zero (0)
* set max to 10
* step should default to one (1)
* change Identifer to "input_wood_rnd_tweak"  (or whatever you want)

* select the wood_fibers_1 node
* choose the "empty function" option in the pulldown for Random Seed in the node
* click the squiggle (sin wave) icon on the empty function to edit it.
* add element to the empty function graph > add element > get variables > get integer
* select the "get integer" node applied to the graph, and change the "variables/get integer" pulldown and select your "input_wood_rnd_tweak"
* right click the "get integer" node and "set as output node"

* change back to the main graph
* double click an open area of the graph to bring up the base parameters and et al...
* change the "default" value of your input tweak

should be working great now.

"You want to modify the random seed of a single node within the graph ?"
Yes i would like to expose each splatter noise's seed within my graph separately

@walker.troy
Thanks i will try that out :)

Hi guys,

I'm also trying to expose the random seed of a couple nodes, and wonder why is it not possible to just simply expose it...?
Anyway I tried the method described above, but I cannot find the input nodes' names in the 'get integer' node dropdown list. Am I doing something wrong, or has this changed since this last post?

Thanks for any help!
