Image generators overview
Image generators quickly add animated or static graphics, such as stars, swirls, rays of color, or lens flares to a project. The image generator category is labeled Generators in the Library.
There are 28 image generators:
Caustics creates an animated, simulated water surface.
Cellular creates an animated pattern that looks like cells moving under a microscope.
Checkerboard creates a static checkerboard pattern.
Clouds creates an animated cloud pattern.
Color Solid creates a single-colored object.
Concentric Polka Dots creates a repeating pattern concentric circles, polygons, or stars.
Concentric Shapes creates a repeating pattern of shapes.
Gradient creates a basic gradient ready for customization.
Grid creates a grid pattern made of two colored lines.
Japanese Pattern creates a pattern of overlapping waves or congruent circles.
Lens Flare superimposes a simulated lens flare effect.
Manga Lines creates radial or linear Manga-style graphic lines.
Membrane creates a sheer, animated sheet that flows gracefully in 3D space.
Noise creates a random, colored static pattern.
One Color Ray creates a ray pattern based on variations of a color.
Overlapping Circles creates orbs of two different colors that overlay each other.
Radial Bars creates bars of equal width that extend from a center point to the edge of the Canvas.
Soft Gradient creates a soft-edged, radial gradient.
Spirals creates a repeating circular spiral pattern.
Spiral Drawing draws overlapping geometric curves like the toy from your youth.
Star creates a glowing star shape that contains an alpha channel.
Stripes creates a default image with vertical bands of two alternating colors.
Sunburst creates “beams” that radiate from a center point.
Truchet Tiles creates a two-color pattern based on simple shapes in different orientations.
