For our OF assignment, I decided to mess around with the 3D Point Cloud Example. I was curious as to how the images were given depth. At first, I thought it was simply related to the color of the image. However, as I found out when using several images that it was the opacity that affected depth. I used a picture of my friend, Ian as well as my dog back home, Charlie. Here are some pictures of the process and result.
For week 4, I revisited a project I made during Bootcamp. I tweaked around with the controls and the look of the circles. However, after some changes, I still like a version very similar to the original. The libraries I used were OSCP5 as well as NetP5.
Here is a link to the original sketch on OpenProcessing.
Here are links to 2 Processing sketches I made playing around with movement using sine waves.
Here is my app! It’s a swarm of bees created using the OF add-on boids and a “queen bee” made with a bees class. Basically, if the “queen bee” returns to the hive, all the bees will swarm back. (click to see the interaction).
good things: i really like being able to integrate classes and add-ons. i also like exploring the add-ons and being inspired by them.
bad things: despite having the right syntax, i’m still having a tough time getting the ‘queen bee’ to trail the mouse. i just need to take a look at it when i have less going on, i think!
