Meta-Image

Recreation of the classic ‘Meta-Image’ effect, where the image is recreated from tiny copies of itself. This basic version took me about an hour to create, as it’s essentially just a variation on the pixellation effects I’ve done before.

tb metaImage 1.0

The plan is to add the ability to zoom each tile (maybe with the option also to set the centre-point of the zoom), and maybe centre each row and column so the effect appears to scale from the centre, rather than the bottom-left of the image when the Cell Size parameter is tweaked. Not quite sure how to do that yet though.Oddly, I’ve had to flip the image tiles vertically, otherwise they come out upside-down in VDMX (but the right way-up in Quartz Composer, bizarrely).

This is a Tiger version, but it should also work in Leopard.
