You can find this filter from the image menu through FiltersRenderPatternLinear Sinusoid….

The Linear Sinusoid filter lets you make sinusoidally based textures, with repeating lighter and darker areas based on a number of adjustable parameters.

The results don't depend on the image you opened.

[Nota] Nota

These options are described in Seção 2, “Common Features”.

X Period, Y Period

Low values will increase the amount of repeating patterns, high values will enlarge the repeating patterns.

X Amplitude, Y Amplitude

Low values will cause a blurring effect, higher values make the pattern sharper.

X Phase, Y Phase

This determines the offset where the pattern starts.


This controls the angle at which the pattern is generated.

Deslocamento, Expoente

The value offset and exponent control the relative amount of darker and lighter areas in the pattern.

X Offset, Y Offset

The offset of the X and Y axis.


The rotation angle of the pattern.


The number of samples along each axis per pixel.
