All of the colors produced by Plasma are completely saturated. Sometimes the strong colors may be distracting, and a more interesting surface will appear when you desaturate the image using ColorsDesaturate.

These options are described in Section 2, “Common Features”.

Turbulence

This parameter controls the complexity of the plasma. High values give a hard feeling to the cloud (like an abstract oil painting or mineral grains), low values produce a softer cloud (like steam, mist or smoke). The range is 0.1 to 7.0.

Random seed

This option controls the randomization element. The New Seed will generate a new seed. There is no reason to use anything else unless you want to be able to repeat the exact same pattern of randomization on a later occasion.
