## Can you group shapes in processing?

PShape Groups Another convenience of PShape is the ability to group shapes. For example, what if you wanted to create an alien creatures out of a set of circles, rectangles, and custom polygons.

### What are the primitive shapes of processing?

The basic shape primitive functions are triangle(), rect(), quad(), ellipse(), and arc().

**What is shape in processing?**

The shape parameter specifies the shape to display and the coordinate parameters define the location of the shape from its upper-left corner. The shape is displayed at its original size unless the c and d parameters specify a different size.

**What is a PShape?**

The PShape object contains a group of methods that can operate on the shape data. Some of the methods are listed below, but the full list used for creating and modifying shapes is available here in the Processing Javadoc. To create a new shape, use the createShape() function.

## How do you use PGraphics?

How to use PGraphics:

- You declare a variable using the PGraphics type (not int, not float).
- You initialize the variable using createGraphics(width, height).
- You use drawing functions on your variable: mygraphics. beginDraw(); mygraphics. ellipse(10,10,10,10); mygraphics. endDraw();

### What is the simplest 3D shape?

One of the most basic and familiar polyhedrons is the cube. A cube is a regular polyhedron, having six square faces, 12 edges, and eight vertices.

**What is Triangle processing?**

triangle() A triangle is a plane created by connecting three points. The first two arguments specify the first point, the middle two arguments specify the second point, and the last two arguments specify the third point.

**How do you make a trapezoid in processing?**

To create trapezoidal shape, we use the quad() function. The format for the quad function is: quad(x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3, x4, y4); Thus, to write the command for the trapezoid we would use: quad(x, y, x+25, y+25, x+75, y+25, x+100, y);

## What is PGraphics processing?

PGraphics is the main graphics and rendering context for Processing. The beginDraw() method is necessary to prepare for drawing and endDraw() is necessary to finish. Use this class if you need to draw into an off-screen graphics buffer or to maintain two drawing surfaces with different properties.

### What is PImage?

The PImage class contains fields for the width and height of the image, as well as an array called pixels[] that contains the values for every pixel in the image. The methods described below allow easy access to the image’s pixels and alpha channel and simplify the process of compositing.

**How do I make a triangle in processing?**

processing Drawing Basic Shapes Drawing a Triangle The signature of triangle is as so: triangle(x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3); Each x point corresponds to the point’s x axis, and y to the y axis. The three points will be joined to form a triangle.
