FE KinkOp
# KinkOp

*Applies lateral noise along each curve.*

## Inputs

Each curve in the **Input Curves** is deformed to wander near its original path.

## Parameters

The approximate amplitude of radial distance that each output curve is allow to deviate from the original centerline
is a ramp from the **Amplitude Root** to **Tip**.
The ramp can be made non-linear with **Gamma** and also given some **Random** noise.
The effect can be limited by axis with the vector **Amplitude Scale**, where X is the tangent,
Y is the curves facing direction, and Z is perpendicular to the facing direction.
The approximate frequency of of wandering back and forth that each output curve follows around the original centerline
is a ramp from the **Frequency Root** to **Tip**.
The ramp can be made non-linear with **Gamma**.
The effect can be limited by axis with the vector **Frequency Scale**, where X is the tangent,
Y is the curves facing direction, and Z is perpendicular to the facing direction.

For the axis scaling features, the primitive vector **Facing Attribute** specfies
a facing direction, perpendicular to the tangent.
