Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Make a flipbook show sprites in a random way

Hi everyone! I'm creating a material that uses a noise texture based on different sprites. I want to show those sprites in a random way, so they don't repeat the same sequence all time.

Is there a way to "randomize" the order in which the sprites are shown?

Assuming you are using the FlipBook material function, you need a "random" scalar between 0 and 1. You can get one by multiplying sines(which have different periods) of time and taking the absolute value of the result.

You're welcome!

If my answer resolved your question, it's a good idea to mark it as resolved/accepted. That way, I get karma and others looking for unresolved questions will have an easier time finding one.
