    Dripping Texture


    I added a Dripping 2D procedural texture,
    in all texture and nodal versions of RmanCollect.
    based on a Tristan Michael and Huw Bowles shaders.

    -Apply as procedural texture to surface color, bump channel or any other texture channel,
    also as Alpha channel for just masking another dirty noise.

    -Select "Drips","Drops" or "Overflow" type.

    -Adjust "Frequence", "Amplitude","Drip Density", "Drip Distance" and "Drip Length"
    for both "Drips" and "Drops", some parameter like "Drip Length" has a different behavior
    a lesser effect for "Drops" type.

    "Frequence" and "Amplitude" parameters obviously interact each other.

    -You may modify the bump channel with "Shaded" "Drips" or "Drops" mode with the Amplitude parameter.

    -Adjust just "Frequence" and "Modulation" parameters for "Overflow" type.

    -Use "Time Offset" for animating the whole "Drips" and "Overflow" and falling drops of "Drops",
    while "Drop Speed" can be modified separately.

    Several animated samples,

    -These effects are smoothed, but another "Displacement Texture" noise may alter them for realism,
    here, 2 layers of noise masked by 2 Alpha layers of Dripping a bit displaced.

    Denis is so awesome!
    It's better to have tried and failed, than to have failed to try.
