# Use vertex color as input to Bitmap controller

Posted in: All Tutorials, Surface Paneling- Oct 21, 2012 No Comments

In this tutorial I used a “Vertex Paint” modifier to paint on the surface and using the colors of the surface in a bitmap controller I modified a parameter of parametric array. This approach works on 1D array while for 2D array you need to do some extra works to achieve the same effect.

# Surface optimization (Face orientation)

In this tutorial you find out how to re-structure a polygon to clad the surface with co-directional panels while working with 1D domain in surface controller. Also you learn how to rotate control points/vertices of panel objects by adding a custom parameter and using transform controller on sub-object controller.
