Hi,I was playing around  with Vector Output, and thought it would be cool, to allow users to change the X/Y coordiates for the Polar selection, of the Shadow Angle Mod parameter.Perhaps some sliders could be used to enter the x/y values.AT present…

"Yep, simultaneous sources, run using multiple angles etc., is exactly what I'd like to see,
I make use of Denoising a lot, as well as minscale. Both reduce noise considerably but also blur out bits of detail too, ( and that's fine).
I'll trying your…"

"Thanks!
That was really helpful
Animating simple brushes works really well, but when I started using some of the more complex brushes, things got a bit weird.

"Thanks! It was setting Mapping/Scaling parm to Absolute, that did the trick.
I figured out about recursion, while I was animating. For my needs, I had to set all the sources, to source, to about any recursion."

Hi,I ran Texture Synthesizer, on a cropped portion of a much larger image, that I had saved.When I applied Texture Synthesizer to the original image, (using the same parameters), I didn't get the same result.Why? if I'm working on a portion of a…
