Well its pretty much procedural. Took an image into houdini, converted it to point data so that i can set the resolution of tiling within houdini itself and then a python script to read that data n display as nodes.

So its just Houdini , some Python and a dash of ingenuity! :)

here's the latest NodeZArt sample..

the logic is similar but slightly more complex than before...

lemme know wat you think...

Ha! Classic! :)

Oh one comment I forgot to mention in the other thread. Are you turning off undos when you do this? It might speed up creation time a bit. Check out the python example here:

Interesting.. I'll have a look at that..

What i figured out is that changing the color of an existing node is faster than creating a new node. So i check if the current node (point) was present in previous frame, if yes then change color of existing node else put a new node. And in the end of the loop i check if any node were present in previous but not in current then delete the nodes. This sped up the process quite a lot.

One again, thanks for the interesting tip !
