Patternodes overview

Patternodes is a tool for creating generative design, vector patterns or animations. This is done using a node-based interface where you define a sequence of connected nodes that describe the design, each representing graphical elements, changes or repetitions. You might call this parametric design or visual scripting for 2d graphics.

The node sequence is completely non-destructive, so you can change any step in the sequence at any time without having to redo anything. This makes it easy to tweak repetition counts or element properties and instantly see the end result. The parameters that control each node can also be connected to other nodes, establishing complex relationships where one property controls another. And finally all of these node parameters can be animated using keyframes in a timeline.

Patternodes is designed from the start to stimulate playful use and experimentation, therefore the result is always shown in the preview view updating in real time. There is also extensive inline help features, warnings, sample files and even a manual to help you use the software.

What’s new in version 3.0.9

Updated on Aug 25 2022

  • The Change Color node can now be used to set fill or stroke color on elements with no fill or stroke opacity.
  • Added new preferences setting for default in/out easing type of new added keyframes.
  • Added some new warnings messages explaining some situations where Change Color and Change Opacity nodes will not show any visible change.
  • Fixes timeline animation track selection not updating correctly when deleting tracks.
  • Undoing deleting selected nodes now properly selects them again after restoring the nodes.

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.
