Is there a way to feather a selection within one plane in order to have 2 different variables of a procedural texture blend into each other? I can't seem to avoid the hard edge in between the 2 procedurals.enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ I suggest adding images to illustrate your question. At the minute it is a little unclear. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2017 at 15:04
  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried vertex color paint? you might be able to paint black in one area, white in another and then blur the edge to get a smooth transition and use that as a mask through the Attribute node. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2017 at 16:12

    $\begingroup$ You can't "feather" geometry selections, use a mask in the material instead, like a procedural based or image texture $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2017 at 16:30

    $\begingroup$ I'm with Duarte on this one, I would add a texture to the mesh instead. If you apply this texture for a temporary time to just paint directly on your mesh, you can use texture paint's brushes to achieve your desired effect quite easily. You can use the standard F Tex Draw Brush to make your major selection, then use the F Soften brush to feather the hard edges as desired. Remember that you have a tool shelf on the left to where you can control the amount of influence with a high degree of control during this process. Then save this image and use it as your Mix factor. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @DuarteFarrajotaRamos Similar question, but the other question (and answer) is about an implementation in Blender Internal, not Cycles. $\endgroup$
