Split slice & draw objects

Hi vvvv-nerds!

I have 1 slice consisting of lots of x/y coordinates. They belong to different objects (BinSize).

How can I split the slice into more slices and draw a line / shape out of it?

Thank you in advance!

do you have one slice of coordinates as strings? then you’d need to use separate do split them.

if you had one slice of coordinates as values i’d wonder how that looks like.


the line object has a binsize input. so just enter the spread of coordinates and the propriate binsizes.

hard to tell what you exactly need without example

I have one slice for all x-coordinates and one slice for all y-coordinates. I can split the slices with the getSlice-object – but how can i use its output?

i know about the line object and its binSize-input. i already drawed lines with it. But i would like to draw filled shapes. Is this possible, too?

THANKS

what slices?
value?
string?

can you attach an example patch?

i believe there is a confusion with the vocabulary:
a ‘slice’ is a single value, single string, a single color etc.
a ‘spread’ consists of multiple values, strings etc. - and each element of the spread is called a ‘slice’.

regarding dynamic filled shapes, they are still kind of an issue.

@kalle: As a newbie i interchanged the names. I have one spread with all x-coordinates and one spread with all y-coordinates.

@diki: Apparently it is not possible to draw any filled shape, although i have all coordinates. Your continuative links say so. I though it would be as easy as i used to know from illustrator , but didnt thought of convex shapes …

Therefore i have to go another way without drawing a filles shape:

Is it possible to modify the output of the Countur-Object?

  1. I want to use a soft-focus effect.
  2. I want to show it on screen temporally delayed for about one second.

Thanks guys!

could you supply an image or mockup to show what you mean by soft-focus effect?

Watch the “Body Navigation”-Video (timecode 01:00–02:00) for example. I’m trying to rebuilt this “projected shaddow” of the dancer.

At least i want to controll the interval of the shaddow’s delay and the intensity of the blur-effect.

THANKS!
