FluidNoise lets you create impressive animations from any natural looking random noise.
Whether it's fire, water, a skyline or a complex design, FluidNoise manages to pick up the composition and easily allows you to create an animation out of it. Fitted with a simple, dark interface, FluidNoise offers a number of settings to work with.
Set the size of your picture, adjust octaves, zoom, persistence and latitude via sliders. Choose the seed and set gradient pinpoints. Obviously, all this will seem fairly technical to more than one user. Luckily though, FluidNoise includes a preview window, so even if you don't really understand what each setting stands for you can still play around and see the results. The application even includes undo and redo and you can save the parameters that you like.
You can also adjust the length of the animation in seconds, if it loops and its speed. Finally, once you're satisfied with what you've created you'll be able to export your creation in either an 8 bit or 32 bit image.
Even if the process feels a little technical, FluiNoise is an intuitive application to create smooth animations out of random noise. Perfect to generate original backgrounds.
