Image based pixel generator

Ella Peinovich

image based pixel generator TOOL_ella:

The script takes an image and transforms it into a field of circles. The script uses Rhino’s “heightfield” command to read the illumination of an image and then links the z value of each point on the heightfield to the radius of each circle.

Below : See example of image pixelization at different scales

Pseudo Code:

  • ‘create heightfield
  • ‘ask user to create a degree of overlap at each pixel
  • ‘create bounding box to evaluate dimensions of the heightfield
  • ‘create a grid of points bound by outer dimensions of image
  • ‘create circle using the z value of height field at each point as the radius of the pixel
  • ‘hide heightfield
