Using attribute for Smooth Strength

Recommended Posts

Hiho,

I have been going though old Entagma tutorials, including Voronoi patterns. 

To get a better fit between the Areas and the grid I am trying to adapt the smooth according to the areas size of the shapes. biiger area -> more smooth strength.

So I created a measure node, got the attribute on the primitive and then tried the simple @area on the strength attribute ... And doesn't work. Tried to promote the attribute to the points to see if that helps, but no...

you can use Attribute Blur instead, it can by controlled by attribute specified in  Weight Attribute parameter

So if I blur the attributes, how is that actually going to help me to get to different smoothing? The attribute values are right, but I can't use it for strength since he function only allows 'global'variable. E.G. $FF would work.

Or do you mean I should use the attribute blur directly on P.xyz instead of using smooth?

I could group the primitives by @area and then use smooth values by group. Maybe a foreach primitive but wasn't able to get that working properly either.

yes, this

you could also use smooth and then blend the original and smoothed version by attribute

Thanks.

I also found the option to use @area as a local control attribute on the poly-extrude to scale the inset.
