noise = "0.9"

About The Project

Noise-rs is a Rust library to generate smoothly varying noise for textural use and graphical display.

Noise generators are contained in NoiseFn modules, and can be combined to make very complex noise results.

Planetary Surface Example

planet surface image planet surface 4x planet surface 16x

Gradient Noise

Gradient noise produces a smooth, continuous value over space. It's achieved by dividing space into regions, placing a random gradient at each vertex, and then blending between those gradients.

Noise Functions

These are the actual noise functions, which just take a coordinate using get() and return a value. They can be chained together when declared, creating very complex noise results.

See the individual function pages for their descriptions, and the examples for their usage.


To use the function write_to_file you have to set the feature "images" in the Cargo.toml

noise = { version = "0.9.0", features = ["images"] }
use noise::{Fbm, Perlin};
use noise::utils::{NoiseMapBuilder, PlaneMapBuilder};

fn main() {
  let fbm = Fbm::<Perlin>::new(0);

  PlaneMapBuilder::<_, 2>::new(&fbm)
          .set_size(1000, 1000)
          .set_x_bounds(-5.0, 5.0)
          .set_y_bounds(-5.0, 5.0)
