NodeBox 2 is a new Mac and Windows software application for creating generative art using procedural graphics. Written in Python, and inspired by it’s written code Mac only predecessor NodeBox, the new version is object based oriented programming at its front with ability to create your own operations by changing code for any existing nodes.
Similarly to QuarzComposer or Graphic Toolbox, you create effects/modifiers by combining different nodes. Nodes, for the time being are a collection of basic shapes and standard modifiers such as copy, translate, grid but of course considering you can modify all of these and create your own, you knowledge of Python will decide how far you can take the app.
NodeBox is free and open-source and developed by Frederik De Bleser and Tom De Smedt.
You can download and try the application here.
