To add this wave deformer, right-click on the "Realwave01" entry in the "Nodes" panel and choose **Add Wave > Fractal**.

“Fractal” provides a typical noisy surface with bumps and dents, and an underlying base oscillation of the entire surface.

##### Active

With “No” the deformer can be disabled temporarily.

##### Weight

To reduce the influence of a deformer, decrease its weight. Valid settings are between 0.0 (inactive) and 1.0 (full influence).

##### Height

This parameter determines the maximum height of the entire surface, while the height of the smaller ripples are controlled with “Slope”. The value is given in metres.

##### Angle

Here the waves’ motion direction is adjusted in degrees.

##### Octaves

Increase this value to get more surface structures. With values above 7 you will hardly notice any change of the surface’s structure.

##### Slope

Control the height of the surface structures created with “Octaves”.

##### Fractal speed

This is the waves' speed given in metres per second.

##### Fractal scale X

You can stretch the waves in X direction. All positive and negative values are accepted. The entered value acts as a factor.

##### Fractal scale Y

You can stretch the waves in Y or Z direction – this depends on your → axis setup. All positive and negative values are accepted. The entered value acts as a factor.

##### Seed

By changing this value you are able to change waves' initial distribution. All positive and negative integers are accepted.
