What is Patternodes for Mac

Patternodes is a tool for creating graphical patterns, animations, gradients, or illustrations based on repetitions. This is done by defining a sequence of steps, a recipe of sorts, that describes the pattern. Each pattern element or operation is represented by a little panel called a node, and the nodes are then linked by connections drawn between them. As the nodes can be freely combined and connected, this gives you a very flexible and powerful interface.

While this interface requires a different way of thinking, it also offers a lot of benefits compared to traditional Illustrator-type editors. Most importantly it enables you to use sliders to instantly change any aspect, like color, spacing, scaling, rotation or repetition count of any part of the pattern without having to undo/redo any steps. You can also specify animation value ranges for any of these parameters.

The resulting pattern tile is always shown in the bottom preview view, repeated and updating in real time with any changes, giving you instant feedback of what the end result will be. To make pattern creation easier Patternodes also includes a lot of nodes that automatically perform common tedious tasks like repeating elements at the tile edges to make the pattern seamless, or randomizing different aspects (like color, position, rotation, etc.) of the elements in a pattern to give it a little more life. Finally, when you're done you can simply copy the pattern tile into whatever illustration or graphics application you use, or export it either as vector graphics or a bitmap image file. Animations can be exported as GIF, QuickTime MOV or numbered PNG or JPG files

What's new in Patternodes

Version 2.4.5:
  • Improved Group Apply function graph to be more responsive during animations and better show period offsets.

  • Added an input socket to the basic Value node.
  • Repeater nodes now correctly show the Dynamic input settings when connected directly to Element list nodes.
  • Fixed an issue with Group Randomize nodes sometimes not loading correctly when opening older files.
  • Updated Sparkle version checking library.
  • Updated Sample files library available from Help menu.

Wow, great way to create patterns. A programmer's way to create great patterns, create nodes and transform, filter and change shapes and images. Of course you can use traditional graphic software to create patterns. But PatterNodes will save you a lot of time and more important it lets you create in a different way with different results. Highly recommended.

I can't seem to work through the MacUpdate update drill to get to the PatterNodes download.
I am used to downloading apps through my browser and managing updates myself.
The (apparently) required installation of the MacUpdate app is snagging me on some kind of trial user limit; so no download.
I DO want PatterNodes; I DON'T want the MacUpdate app to intervene for me--whether it's free for the first 10 times or $20 thereafter.
Please offer users the option of going back to the simpler day, when MacUpdate as a service assisted in delivering products, rather than introducing additional steps that can (and do) complicate things.

This App might be useful -- if I actually got a "valid" activation code for it.

Love this App for its great versatility and parameter driven patterns. Great bit of node driven texture making.
