Generative Design with the Iterator

Magic is powerful enough to create this design in just a few nodes...in this tutorial, I walk through how to recreate it.

Nice one Sadler! Very clearly illustrated and explained, and a very attractive responsive design. I'm sure your tutorial will inspire many people. It certainly inspires me.

IMHO the impact of the video would be even greater if you reprised the animated design for 30s at the end of your spoken section, and shorted it to 17s max at the start to get to the meat of the sandwich sooner. That's just a simple edit with existing material. As a further refinement for the reprise, re-render with a variant of the music that finished by dropping back to the introductory few beats and then faded. Your design would then relax into its passive state, further demonstrating the audio responsiveness and neatly ending the tutorial.

I suspect some people will want to know exactly how you made it responsive - a subject for your next tutorial?

Thanks Terry - it is good to have any feedback on these tutorial attempts.

I hear you on the format of the video - you're right - a bit less up front and a musical reminder at the end. Will bear that in mind for the next one ;)

I have a short list of tuts I'd like to do - will add one on reactivity, thanks!

Cheers OP9 - I will try my best!
