188.8.131.52 Transforming Patterns
The most common pattern modifiers are the transformation modifiers
matrix. For details on these commands see section "Transformations".
These modifiers may be placed inside pigment, normal, texture, and density statements to change the position, size
and orientation of the patterns.
Transformations are performed in the order in which you specify them. However in general the order of
transformations relative to other pattern modifiers such as
other maps is not important. For example scaling before or after turbulence makes no difference. The turbulence is
done first, then the scaling regardless of which is specified first. However the order in which transformations are
performed relative to
warp statements is important. See "Warps" for details.
