Doh. I used to know how to do this. Does anyone know a nice, streamlined nodal network for applying absolutely any procedural to UVs?

The old gag was to load a blank image in at the res you needed, and in the Image Editor's Processing tab add a Textured Filter that you could overlay. You can still do it that way and just use the processed image in your nodes...

Thanks Ben. Still hoping for a Nodal solution. We can apply IFW procedurals to UVs interactively in Modo so am thinking there must be a way...

There are several ways to go for nodal solution. As Ben says, Textured Filter in Image Editor is the old-fashioned way. But for this way to work with "absolutely any procedural", you could go with the Procedural Node Editor in Textured Filter:

You'll need of course an image, but it has not to be blank (it can be a clone of an already existed image). Another way is use directly DP Node Image Filter instead of Textured Filter => Node Editor:

Other way for skipping the mapping into an external image is just solve it in Surface Node Editor in a way like this:

it could give you some ideas...

This sounds really useful as I'm looking for something similar - a couple of those images are broken gerardstrada, can you repost? Thanks :D
