Developer Description

"Create parametric designs, vector patterns an"

Patternodes is a tool for creating generative design, vector patterns or animations. This is done using a node-based interface where you define a sequence of connected nodes that describe the design, each representing graphical elements, changes or repetitions. You might call this parametric design or visual scripting for 2d graphics.

The node sequence is completely non-destructive, so you can change any step in the sequence at any time without having to redo anything. This makes it easy to tweak repetition counts or element properties and instantly see the end result. The parameters that control each node can also be connected to other nodes, establishing complex relationships where one property controls another. And finally all of these node parameters can be animated using keyframes in a timeline.

Patternodes is designed from the start to stimulate playful use and experimentation, therefore the result is always shown in the preview view updating in real time. There is also extensive inline help features, warnings, sample files and even a manual to help you use the software.


There is a collection of projects that could work as inspiration for what you could use Patternodes for here on Behance:

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.15 or later

What's new in this version: New features and improvements: - New Repeat Function node, allowing you to repeat elements with a transformation similar to the Apply Function node. This makes it a lot more convenient to make some gradual scale or offset transforms and adds greater control. - New Select from group option in the Replace node, allowing you to select the replacement element from an input group instead of using the entire group. This makes it much easier to make patterns with mixed elements without needing Element lists. Just connect all your elements to the replace node and set how to select the replacement from the group. - Pack and Element info nodes now have an Ignore stroke option to get size and pack elements disregarding and stroke width. Fixes: - Fixed function period offsets still being applied even if the change periods option was unchecked. - Change node apply to Single selection now works with negative offsets as well as positive. - Fixed some macOS 14 UI layout issues. - Improved export file writing error handling. - Fixed some incorrect warnings in disabled nodes. The inspiration to some of these new features comes from our new parametric design project Paragraphic, check it out at and follow it's development if you're interested.
