Subject: [css-images] Generated noise image

+ Cross posting to inform folks on www-svg


A while back ago we discussed a noise filter function for Filter Effects on
the SVG WG. SVG Filters have a Perlin noise filter: feTurbulence.

feTurbulence was identified for not being hardware acceleration friendly and
the SVG WG was requested to come up with a different noise algorithm.

Some members requested to create a new CSS image function instead of
creating a new filter to generate noise. I would like to know if there is
still interest in a noise image function.


Well, yes. Am still [1] very much interested. I've about exhausted the
things that one can do with feTurbulence. Gabor noise looks nice, broader,

Not sure why this should be a CSS thing instead of a filter or
filter-attribute. Would it be useable as a part of a standard filter chain
in SVG?
