or ‘escape routes’in case o collisionIn a collision an insect hit in the back will not stopmoving, but an insect which runs into another insect will.‘Controllers’, or example attract, vortex and direct, can be used to explicitly control the insects.
I produced this video as a demonstration o various programs I am writing. Te spiders are controlled usingmy own crowd simulation algorithm, outlined below. Data rom this is ed into my multi-leg auto-walker. Terenders are processed using custom ‘scribbling’ code I developed based on an algorithm by zerank. I sampledthe motion paths to produce waveorms, and combined the result with an audiopaint process.
