I love Blender...
And sometimes I love it even more. Even more! Especially when someone asks a question and I just know I can quickly give them an answer. Well, you know, quick for me...
So, yeah, @F0xtastic was trying to apply the method of using the gradient texture that creates the Saturn rings in the Tutorial "Procedural Planets" upload in April 2023.
They were using it as a way to create Strata, but could not quite get it right.
So here, as a response to the comment, is the answer to how to procedurally create Strata, as well as a quick nifty way to create a plateau shader, also useful for creating snow-covered tops
Hope you all like it.
Take care, and see you soon!
