Smart Auto Tile

Smart Auto Tile

In: Material Filters/Scan Processing



This node turns a non-tiling set of Basecolor, Normal and Heightmaps into a tiling version according to smart analysis of the inputs. It is similar to Make It Tile Photo, but much more advanced as it uses information from all channels to blend things together in the smartest way (similar to what Clone Patch does). It also has an internal Crop function to determine which area to use when tiling - make sure to read more about the Crop node to understand this function properly.

To use this node, start by defining your Cropped area and then use the Edge settings to determine how the tiled edges are blended into the centre. The Treshold parameters are of key importance to this! Keep in mind that big, uniform areas don't work very well with this effect; the more details and shapes there are, the more it has to work with.

  • MaskGrayscale Input 
    Mask slot used for masking the node's effects. Can be toggled with the "Use Mask" parameter.


  • Crop 
    • Input Size0 - 8192
      Input images' resolution and proportions. Very important for non-square images.
    • Transform(Transformation Matrix)
      Rotates and scales the result. The result can be modified by directly interacting with the canvas.
    • Offset0.0 - 1.0
      Moves or translates the result. The result can be modified by directly interacting with the canvas.
  • Edge 
    • Detect EdgesFalse/True
      Turns on or off special edge detected blending.
    • Use Threshold Per ChannelFalse/True
      Switches between a global treshold value, or one for every channel.
    • Threshold0.0 - 1.0
    • Threshold Base Color0.0 - 1.0
    • Threshold Normal0.0 - 1.0
    • Threshold Height0.0 - 1.0
    • Cut Offset0.0 - 0.5
      Main control for moving the cut, both X- and Y-axes are separated.
    • Blur0.0 - 2.0
      Blurs the blending transition.
    • Smoothness0.0 - 2.0
      Controls jaggedness of edge analysis results.
    • Grid Resolution1 - 11
      Quality resolution of edge analysis.
    • Use Base ColorFalse/True
      Toggles Base Color processing (in and out).
    • Use NormalFalse/True
      Toggles Normal processing (in and out).
    • Use HeightFalse/True
      Toggles Normal processing (in and out).
    • Use MaskFalse/True
      Toggles the use of the Mask map on or off, for custom stamp mask shapes.
