PatterNodes - Mac
PatterNodes is a node-based app that is designed to allow users to create graphical patterns, gradients or illustrations based on repetitions, beginning with defining a series of linked steps. Sliders make it possible to change such aspects of the pattern as color, spacing, scaling, rotation or repetition count. As users make changes, these are displayed in a preview area.
Seamless patterns can be created with the use of provided, configurable shapes, as well as imported bitmap or vector images. Included are nondestructive randomization functions to scale, rotate, move or adjust the color of the individual elements of a pattern. Once completed, seamless patterns can be pasted into other applications or exported to JPEG, PNG, TIFF or vector EPS and PDF formats. Animations can be exported to GIF, QuickTime MOV or numbered PNG or JPG files.
