Py5Graphics.points()#

Draw a collection of points, each a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel.

Description#

Draw a collection of points, each a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel. The purpose of this method is to provide an alternative to repeatedly calling Py5Graphics.point() in a loop. For a large number of points, the performance of points() will be much faster.

The coordinates parameter should be a numpy array with one row for each point. There should be two or three columns for 2D or 3D points, respectively.

This method is the same as points() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see points().

Underlying Processing method: PGraphics.points

Syntax#

points(coordinates: npt.NDArray[np.floating], /) -> None

Parameters#

  • coordinates: npt.NDArray[np.floating] - 2D array of point coordinates with 2 or 3 columns for 2D or 3D points, respectively
