Here is a whimsical little subnetwork node: balloons!

Balloons takes seven parameters:

   - Boundary Shape. The area (e.g. rect or ellipse) in which the balloon centers will appear.
   - Amount. The number of balloons.
   - Min size. The minimum balloon diameter.
   - Max size. The maximum balloon diameter.
   - Seed. A random seed value - adjust to try different configurations.
   - Show boundary. If checked, boundary shape will be shown - handy for positioning balloon layouts
   - Colors (optional). A list of colors for the balloons to cycle through. If not supplied, a random color will be assigned to each balloon.

The screenshots show two possible configurations. In the first, an ellipse is used to define the boundary and random colors are applied. In the second, a rectangle defines the boundary and a specific palette of three colors are used.


None whatsoever. Unless you just like drawing balloons.

    When one balloon loves another balloon very much...

    Some animated mischief with the balloon node.
