Seed [-2147483648..2147483647]

This is the value on which the random calculation is based. The sequence of the random values will always remain the same with identical Seed values, which means that they can be repeated.

Salt [-2147483648..2147483647]

This setting is used to define the desired random value for the list of random values defined by the Seed setting. This list of random values also takes into consideration the current animation time in the scene and the coordinates of the object points displayed. Therefore, it’s not really necessary to modify the Salt value to receive a new random sequence. Changing the perspective or modifying the animation time will also do.


This setting defines the value range of the output color and numeric values.

Minimum [-∞..+∞]

This is the smallest random value that can be output.

Maximum [-∞..+∞]

This is the largest random value that can be output.
