Flocking using GEN

    Jul 19 2013 | 3:48 pm
    Hello everybody,
    I was wandering if it is possible to write a flocking algorithm in Gen? I know that there are the boid externals but I want to write one in gen making it more flexible.

      Not that I know of. You'd need to use codebox and a for loop over the input matrix to do the neighbor calculations. Using a 1D matrix would make things simpler.

      Thanks, yes I was also thinking of a 1D matrix, I once built the algorithm in processing and there I also used a 1D array. But I'm new to gen so I was wandering if it could be done. A 1D matrix is only possible in jit.gen right? Because I would like to run it on the GPU.

      jit.gl.pix runs on the GPU. jit.gen and jit.pix on the CPU. Here's a jit.gen version:

      wow, super thanks! This helps me a lot.
