It is related to wave height (0-200 pixels).

Amplitude = 25


It is related to wavelength (0-200 pixels)

Period = 110

Phase shift

Wave is moved

Phase shift = 0.400


Warps wave

Angle = -40°

Resampling methods

These interpolation methods are described in 插值.

Wave type

Choose how the wave should look like:

  • Sawtooth

  • Triangle

  • Sine

Abyss policy

Abyss policy = Black

Abyss policy (border management) is treated with Abyss policy.


This preserves the seamless properties if your image is a tile pattern.
