# Waves

Variations that add waves to x, y, and/or z. There are a lot of different variants on this theme, differing in the parameters available and how they are applied.

## auger

Wave effect that gets stronger further from the origin.

## vibration

Add sine waves in two arbitrary directions

Type: 2D
Author: Jessica Darling (FarDareisMai)
Date: 9 Aug 2011

Same as waves2 when dir=0, angle=Ï€/2, phase=0, dir2=Ï€/2, angle2=Ï€/2, and phase2=0, with freq=waves2_freqx*2Ï€, amp=waves2_scalex, freq2=waves2_freqy*2Ï€, and amp2=waves2_scaley.

## vibration2

Add sine waves in two arbitrary directions with modulation

Type: 2D
Author: Jessica Darling (FarDareisMai)
Date: 9 Aug 2011

Vibration2 is vibration with the ability to modulate the direction, angle, frequency, and amplitude of each wave with a sine wave. The first ten parameters are the same as vibration. Vibration2 is the same as vibration when dm, tm, fm, am, d2m, t2m, f2m, and a2m are all 0 (no modulation).

## waves

Add sine waves to x and y (dependent variation).

Type: 2D
Author: Scott Draves
Date: March 2004

Waves is an older “dependent variation” that depends on the affine coefficients of the transform instead of parameters. Of course, changing the affine coefficients affects the flame too, making dependent variations more difficult to use than the newer “parametric variations” that use parameters, such as waves2.

## waves2

Add sine waves to x and y (some versions include z).

Type: 2D
Author: Scott Draves
Date: 3 Oct 2008

Same as linear when scalex and scaley are 0. For versions with scalez, same as linear3D when scalex, scaley, and scalez are 0.
