Download free Blender texture scattering plugin SCATTr
3D artist Simon Thommes has released SCATTr, a neat free procedural texture scattering plugin for Blender.
Disctribute textures randomly across a surface, with controls for scale and rotation
Each SCATTr system distributes up to nine separate texture maps across a surface, making it possible to create randomised effects ranging from motion graphics to fallen leaves.
The plugin works on a grid system, assigning one texture per grid cell, with options to randomise its scale, rotation and placement within the cell.
Textures can be allowed to overlap, or there is a Single Scatter option, which prevents overlap, but speeds up processing time.
System requirements and availability
SCATTr is available for Blender 2.8 under an open-source Creative Commons Attribution licence. It should also work with Blender 2.79, but will need more manual set-up.
