JSplacement

JSplacement is a rather cool pseudo-random 8k displacement map generator made with JavaScript. It generates grayscale height maps that can be used for displacement. Below are some tests using Arnold.

The image below required a higher than normal number of Subdiv Iterations (9) to capture the fine detail from the generated displacement map.
