Visual Tasks

This demo creates animations for six basic visual tasks which are easy for people to do, but hard for computers. For each one I created a NodeBox solution. If you find the need to perform similar feats in NodeBox you can see how I did it. Feel free to borrow the custom nodes and Python code modules I devised.

This project grew out of my dialog with another NodeBox user who wanted help making organic looking patterns for shoe treads. For more about this, and about the six visual tasks, see my blog:

Comments welcome. Enjoy!
