I've been working on a few shots lately that are using the Tinderbox HeatHaze plugin, and have a question that I hope somebody on here will be able to resolve.
From what I've seen, it seems the results of the node are completely random? I didn't see anything in the description or documentation about this and none of the knobs particularly suggest it so I'm a little confused.
Basically, I have a rendered out version of the comp and when I open it and toggle between the Write and the render it usually matches exactly. However, if I change a frame, refresh, or sometimes just zoom in and out, the output will randomly change and no longer match. Sometimes if I keep refreshing it will start matching again. I've tried it on checkerboards as well and gotten similar results. If I render again, sometimes it comes out matching the original render or sometimes it's a completely different result that doesn't match either the original or my Write output.
For my own sanity, I'd like to know if this behavior is intentional and if not, how do I get it to match up every time.
Ultimately, it isn't that big of an issue if it doesn't match exactly, I just want to understand why it's doing what it's doing.
