Overview

 

Detects the distinct regions making up an input pattern, and provides options for manipulating those regions in a number of interesting ways.

 

 

Regions

 

 

In the example above, a Regions node has detected the regions of the Cells in its first input, and filled each one with the image provided by its second input.

 

 

 

Inputs

 

 

Input

Description

Regions

The input pattern from which the regions will be found.

Image

An optional image that may be inserted within the regions depending on settings.

 

 

 

Properties

 

 

Property

Description

Threshold

Regions are detected by finding the continuous areas of the first input's red channel that are brighter than a certain threshold, defined by this property.

Remove Gaps

Set property to "Yes" to remove the gaps between the detected regions.

Fill Mode

Dictates how the regions are filled.  Any option that has the word "Image" in it will require an input in the node's second input for a meaningful result to be produced.

Rotate Image

Specifies whether the input image is rotated to match the orientation of each individual region.  Will only have an effect if a Fill Mode is selected that places the input image into the regions.

Seed

Change this property to re-randomize any elements of the node that is based on a random component.  Only certain Fill Modes are based on a random component.
