How to Use Color Jitter and Ramps for Controlled Color Variation

Lee Griggs shows how you can use Arnold Color Jitter more precisely.

Arguably one of the most-used Arnold nodes is Color Jitter. It’s an easy way to get random color variation parametrically. In a new quick tip tutorial, Arnold rendering specialist Lee Griggs shows us how you can do things with the color jitter that offers a bit more control.

Griggs shows how you can connect a ramp to have the jitter node select between specific colors rather than an entirely random set. You can also use a ramp connected to the jitter input to create animated motion-graphic-like effects in a snap.
