The Wave effect distorts the image as if it had been disturbed by a number of random waves.

Name   Default   Description
Number 3 The number of random waves that should be generated.
LengthMin 40 pixels The minimum wavelength for a random wave.
LengthMax 60 pixels The maximum wavelength for a random wave.
HeightMin 5 pixels The minimum amplitude for a random wave.
HeightMax 15 pixels The maximum amplitude for a random wave.
Speed 6 There is a general speed versus quality tradeoff. Higher values produce faster results at the expense of quality.
   
How it Works
 
     
     

The effect distorts the image as if it had been disturbed by a number of waves. By choosing appropriate values you can make images look like they are underwater or are being seen through a heat haze.

   
Example
 
     

The following examples show the effect of a Wave applied with a number of different settings.

After Wave with default settings

 

   


LengthMin = 15, LengthMax = 30

 

   


HeightMin = 0, HeightMax = 5
