Tracking Movement: Circular Lofts


Building off of the previous circular loft script, I created a tracker that traced the location of a series of points over time. As a form twirls across the screen, the series traced points form curves, and are lofted into graceful forms.





I'm using the recorder to track points, and feeding the points into an interpolated curve. Works surprisingly well! Right now there is only a rotate transform, but I did play around with a move transformation (x,y) as well. I'm still trying to figure out what I can do with these extrusions:





 I then isolated the move transform to the x dimension only, and I got some interesting script-like curves. As the resulting traces are highly dependent on the initial loft forms, I feel like there's a lot of potential here.
