Procedural Texture Generation
Procedural texture generation is the process of dynamically creating a texturemap in real-time via code, as opposed to via drawing pre-made textures from memory. They are frequently used to create subtle variations in terrain, from the same base elements, and add noise to create the realism of partial randomness.
