    Tile Mixer

    Hi,

    I added a Tile Mixer 2D Texture,
    in RmanCollect and RmanNodeCollect windows versions,
    for varying tiling image textures,
    seamless texture or not, push the 2 parameters, even high numbers
    until you get a good result, different seed may help too.

    Triplanar mapping for Tile Mixer node

    Hi,

    I added a Triplanar mapping option for the Tile Mixer node version,
    similar to Cubic mapping, but with a blending effect,
    so a bit slower to render.

    I added a "Sharpness" blending parameter for Triplanar mapping (TileMixer node only),
    also a "Seed Per Axis" option, increment the current seed per axis,
    for avoiding miiror effect in this mapping mode.

    Thanks, man!
    I am going to write essay papers about some interesting facts about our Earth and, I think, it could be interesting for you. So, you can check resumeedge.com if you wish!

    ..But this last "Sharpness" addition broke something when loading 2D texture,
    so I recommend to download the last version of RmanNodeCollect.

    I found that Truchet texture generates also infinite patterns,
    combined with kaleidoscopic deformations from DPKit,

    Truchet Texture node + Mirror Tool node + ScalarToBump node,

    I updated also DPKit,
    added Cubic mode to both Tile and Mirror Tool nodes,
    here combined with RManNode Truchet, all set to Cubic projection,
    kaleidoscopic on all sides,
