Hi Thomas,

no, there is no crand in the texture. Janc had forgotten to post the link to the
other discussion here:


Janc's observations are right completely. But the texture /* is */ rotated, what
we see here is another phenomenon. It's more a matter of scale and the pixel
level. I will create a little animation with Janc's texture to illustrate this
issue within the next hours.

Best regards,
