    random_points = 100 * np.random.rand(500, 2)
    py5.points(random_points)

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 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.

Underlying Processing method: 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
