terrain — Generate terrain field from mathematical noise
noise_function] [ -c

program produces pseudo-terrain from procedural noise suitable for use with a
BRL-CAD dsp primitive. Noise values are computed for the grid points of the
lattice and the resultant values are output on the standard output as unsigned
shorts in network byte order. The size of the grid is specified with the
Specifies the number of grid points in the X dimension. Default is 256.
Specifies the number of grid points in the Y dimension. Default is 256.
Turns of the conversion of the data from host to network format. This only has an effect on little-endian machines.
Turns on verbose mode. Information about which filter is running is printed.
Selects the type of noise field to be used. Options include
A lunar-like surface.
Fractional Brownian motion (fBm).
Turbulence inverted: 1.0 - turb(pt).
A Ridged multi-fractal.
Specifies the number of octaves of noise to layer. Typical values are 2 through 8.
Specifies the scaling factor between successive octaves of noise. Practical values are non-integer numbers between 1.7 and 4.0.
Specifies the value of H in the noise equation. Usually 1.0
Scales the noise uniformly in X, Y and Z dimensions by the value noise_scale. Values below 1.0 cause the noise pattern to become smaller. Values above 1.0 cause it to get bigger
Allows non-uniform scaling of the X, Y and Z dimensions. See
Specifies a translation in noise space.
