A guide to better looking Processing sketches. A guide to better looking Processing sketches The purpose of this article is to explain how to incorporate some of the built-in Processing functionality that is generally underutilized.
Processing has a wealth of features that allow you to achieve high quality results without needing to learn linear algebra and write custom shaders. Spatial anti-aliasing is easiest way to improve the visual quality of your sketch. When images are rendered at a higher resolution and down-sampled, the edges of polygons appear softer. No anti-aliasing. With anti-aliasing. (8x) The function in processing that facilitates anti-aliasing is smooth(). For most graphics cards smooth() accepts an argument value up to 8. For simple scenes with large shapes there are diminishing returns for higher anti-aliasing multipliers. When calling the size function you specify width and height, but you can also specify a renderer. No lights. With lights. A combination of grey ambient light and a red ambient material.

Cellular Automata. Rhino to Processing and Back. It’s surprisingly simple to converse between Rhino and Processing through Grasshopper.
This is a template to demonstrate and use the connection, which is through strings. It can also be done across networks (just change the IP and port as required) which could easily spread CPU power, or just ease workflow. Thanks to Joe S: Download files: talkToRhino.

People from many different backgrounds now want to understand the basics of programming, because it’s both fun and an increasingly valuable skill. One of the most exciting ways to learn programming is through authoring your own creative programs. Known as “creative coding,” this growing field uses computer software as a medium to develop original creative expression. So if you’re an artist, designer, architect or musician who’s interested in how you can expand your creative skills, or even a computer programmer looking to work in creative applications, you will find this free online course extremely useful. Explore the concepts and skills of creative coding Throughout the course we’ll help you develop practical programming concepts and skills by exploring creative ideas and challenges. Learn with professional artists and designers The course is very different from technical courses on programming.
