Hi Hadrien,

Great idea!

I myself do this by mixRGBing 2 or more textures using noise input (like
CarlG stated in the thread); but this is probably the workaround you talk

Hopefully this can be done in code as it would allow this tedious task to
be done rather automatically.

It would be perfect to come up with multiple uses of such feature rather
than just this one though; more uses = bigger impact.

Keep up the good ideas,
