All about noise Functions with FUSE
VVVV Intermediates Summer 2024

June 6th 2024, 6 – 9 PM (UTC+2)
In English Language / Online via Zoom

Recordings are available and accessible for one year after purchase.

This course is part of the VVVV Intermediate Program of Summer Season 2024.
This course is part of a FUSE Bundle consisting of 8 courses all together.

Noise functions are fundamental tools for generating textures, patterns, and simulations. In this session, we’ll explore the diverse range of noise functions available in FUSE and demonstrate how they can be utilized to enhance complexity and detail in your projects. From understanding the basics to mastering advanced techniques, this workshop will equip you with the skills to leverage noise functions creatively in your visual programming endeavours.

Course Outline

During this workshop, participants will:

  • Explore the concept of randomness and its application in generating procedural textures.
  • Understand lattice noises and learn techniques to manipulate them for desired effects.  
  • Learn about value noise, gradient noise, and simplex noise.
  • Dive into cellular noises, also known as Worley noise, and understand their applications.
  • Gain insights into derivatives and their significance in noise functions.
  • Implement Fractal Brownian Motion (FBM) for generating complex textures.
  • Understand basic implementation, octaves, gain, and lacunarity.
  • Create custom FBM variations using derivatives for added flexibility.
  • Experiment with custom noises like wave noise, shard noise, and Gabor noise.
  • Explore domain warping techniques to distort noise patterns for unique visual effects.


This workshop is ideal for both, vvvv users with an entry level looking to enter the world of GPU programming with FUSE and experienced developers seeking to deepen their understanding of its core principles. Join us as we embark on an exciting journey into the heart of FUSE and unlock its creative potential!

  • Eagerness to explore and experiment with GPU-based visual programming.
  • Willingness to engage in hands-on exercises and experimentation.
  • A basic understanding of vvvv gamma. 
  • A recent PC with stable internet connection
  • A windows machine as vvvv runs on Windows only
  • The latest build of vvvv gamma installed
  • Zoom Client installed (please test your audio setup beforehand)
  • 3-Button Mouse recommended
