Shape Processor Designs




This tutorial will outline some simple designs you can create using Acorn’s Shape Processor.  All the examples were created on a 1000 x 1000 pixel canvas.  Unless stated otherwise, the examples were created entirely within the processor.  To learn more about the basics of using the shape processor, read here.

The stars have a fill, but no stroke.
