Despite reading lots of game programming books over the year I've yet to see exactly what "splatting" means, as in "texture splatting" or "shader splatting". Everyone seems to assume that we all know what it means, but obviously I missed something somewhere.

I see lots of discussions etc that mention it, but nothing that actually says what it is. Is it another name for something else?

Does it mean applying a texture decal over some geometry or something like that?

Thanks in advance
Ben

Thanks Kauna,

Its as I suspected then... a technique that I was fully familiar with and use regularly but by a different name. :)

Thanks for clarifying and for the link.

Kind Regards
Ben
