Is this similar to a bunch of spherical pattern components added together?
I guess it is:
strength * pow((1 - pow((distance / radius), 2), 2)
For each defined blob component from a sample point, then added together, which
isn't exactly the same?
As it is, I think you could do this for blobs with up to 13 or 14 components
using user-defined functions, but you would need a separate function for each
number of components, or have a "component count" parameter and then have
ignored parameters off the right side.
But either way, probably not ideal.
