Py5Shape.set_path()#

Set many vertex points at the same time, using a numpy array.

Examples#

example picture for set_path()
import numpy as np

def setup():
    vertices = 100 * np.random.rand(25, 2)
    s = py5.create_shape()
    s.begin_shape()
    s.no_fill()
    s.set_path(vertices.shape[0], vertices)
    s.end_shape()
    py5.shape(s)

Description#

Set many vertex points at the same time, using a numpy array. This will be faster and more efficient than repeatedly calling Py5Shape.set_vertex() in a loop. Setting the vertex codes is not supported, so the vertices will be regular vertices and not bezier, quadratic or curve vertices.

The vcount parameter cannot be larger than the first dimension of the verts array.

Underlying Processing method: PShape.setPath

Signatures#

set_path(
    vcount: int,  # number of vertices
    verts: npt.NDArray[np.floating],  # 2D array of vertex coordinates
    /,
) -> None
