    I guess we know what Worley has been up to. :)

    Not sure how popular the Worley name is, so I'm thinking it must be the FPrime mastermind.

    That's been there since the 90s I think. Not sure. A while. But, yes, I guess that is Steve's noise algorithm cited by the Max coders.

    I wonder, I think I recall the chebychev and minkowsy types beeing seen in some procedural, donīt think itīs one of the natives though, could be the cbt procedural or something from dponīt or ifw2.
    Otherwise I think itīs missing, they are there in blender anyway.

    Yep, same Steven Worley. I have no clue whether he was involved in the UberNoise plugin for Max, though, other than it using his algorithm(s).

    His papers:

    Yeah I wonder what he is doing now. His FPrime was (and is) amazing and CPU driven with blazing speed. I wonder what its like with today's CPU's.

    Petty we lost out of him as lw developer, fprime and sasquatch and some other stuff down the drain.
    The pausing of a render and resume is something I miss, speedwise hard to say..at the time they introduced VPR, it could render hypervoxels and fprime couldnīt ..or was a bit later I think.
    And the option to render out animation frames to a certain aliasing level for draft views in a fast way, then if satisfied...just continue to resume render with higher aliasing without having to start from scratch...apart from the first feature, which blender also has
    they should continue in that footstep.
