I just downloaded the processing pre-release 3.0a8 and tested it with a bunch of parallax flowers - because spring

hexagonal animated texture

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-15T10:47:23+02:00

For this animation I used a similar technique as in my growing-texture animation. I created an image sequence in processing and used it as an animated image texture in blender. I used a transparent material everywhere the texture has a black pixel. The texture is also used as a displacement texture to make the hexagonal tiles better visible

The processing code is based on one of my abstract art generators I have written in processing

you can download the blend file here

growing texture

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-08T06:49:03+02:00

For this animation I used an image sequence to switch between a transparent and an opaque material in cycles.

To generate the image texture I wrote a processing sketch that animates black stripes growing from bottom to top at various speeds. (see below for the sourcecode of the processing sketch)

diffusion reaction in processing

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-04-29T06:24:04+02:00

A new Pre-Release of Processing has been uploaded to this week, so I wrote a diffusion/reaction-Simulation sketch and played a bit with the various parameters. (Thanks to Karl Sims for this excellent tutorial)

Here is a video and a screenshot of one of the simulation runs

you can download my processing script here

trigonometric waves

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-01-23T06:22:17+01:00

I wrote a sort new processing sketch that uses about 20 lines of code to create trippy slow moving wave patterns by using the sine- and cosine-functions in processing.

oculus rift experiment 3 - labyrinth

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-01-02T05:49:22+01:00

For this oculus rift experiment I used the labyrinth generator I wrote a while ago and turned it into a little game. You have to run/drive through a labyrinth and find a yellow post. If you hit it a new labyrinth is generated. Originally I wanted to use the WASD keys to run through the labyrinth but I switched to a usb-gamepad, because its easier for the players to navigate the labyrinth when they hold the controller in their hands instead of having to search for the keyboard.
