How could this be made?

Hi guys,

Just wondering how something similar could be made with OF. Do you think this is code or animation?

All tips are welcome!

reminded me of https://github.com/neilmendoza/ofxGpuParticles

Definitely has a similar feel to it. I think I’m actually having trouble understanding what is happening there (in the gif example), as in what moves, rotates, fades… where and why.

If it is particle based. Then it may be a form of of flocking. This is explained here: http://harry.me/blog/2011/02/17/neat-algorithms-flocking/
