Like all texture style nodes, this node takes a manifold that describes either a 2D or 3D domain to apply a Worley noise texture to. The default beahaviorbehavior, if no mainfold manifold is attached, is to apply over P in 3D. This node computes Worley noise, as described by Steven Worley.


If you want your displacement and shading patterns to match, use the Undisplaced Position.

Before After Image Slider


Controls the size of the cells. Higher frequencies make smaller cells.


Inspired by the grid-like organisation organization of Manhattan, this is the distance to the nearest points when you can only travel around the cell's boundaries.


Named after Pafnutty Chebyshev, it is also known as the Chessboard Distance. It is somewhat similar to the Manhattan distance, but with 45 degrees rotation.


Minkowski is a generalisation generalization of both euclidean and Manhattan distance. The exponent will make the pattern transition from Euclidian to Manhattan.



Minkowski is more expensive than the other distance metrics, but it is fine for displacement as you will pay the cost only once when the geometry is displaced.



Controls the distortion of the cells.


Makes the distance transition smoothly from Manhattan (1.0) to Euclidean (2.0) to weird un-explored territories.





Modifies the computed distances to create different shapes. The example below uses c1 = 1.0 and c2 = 0.0.

Clamp Output

Causes resulting distances to be clamped to the range 0.0 to 1.0.


c1: 1.0    c2: -0.95    distancemetric: Euclidean




Inverts the final pattern.


Random Scale

This will randomly scale the features' amplitude and give a slightly more regular appearance.

Random Scale Center

This is applying a an offset to the signal before applying the random scale. Use this to create more variations.



The manifold over which to apply the noise. (The default is P).


Adjust Output

Color Scale

A multiplier for the color values in a texture , can be used to adjust brightness or manipulate individual color channels

Color Offset

Apply an offset to the result, shifting the colors of the result

Alpha Scale

A multiplier for the alpha channel, useful when the alpha is used to drive a parameter

Alpha Offset

An offset for the alpha channel, useful when the alpha is used to drive a parameter

Float Scale

Scalar Float value

Float Offset

Float Offset value 

Output Parameters


The result of Worley noise texture.
