How to use BBox from a geo to drive size of another geo Feb. 23, 2018, 4:28 p.m.

The box node has an input. Just plug the sweep node in it and scale it back with
1/$SIZEY
.

With VEX it´s
@P.x *= getbbox_size(1).x;

You can apply the same principle to any geometry as long as you apply a vertical black to white gradient to it (first file). In other cases a wirecapture plus a wiredeform node might come in handy (second file).

I had gotten to the Point VOP stage (it's the same as Attribute VOP, right? Just that it's already set to point context?
yes.

but the Bind node is what I was failing to understand
inside VOPS you use “bind” to import attributes and “bind export” to write attributes.

the expression you put in rz of the line transform, how did you get to that? Is it just vex
It´s an expression function (not VEX). Expression functions are probably what you learn first. I dont use them as much anymore. Anyways, here is the full list:

And dont worry: you will mostly use a fraction of them, like channel references ch“../” or again point attributes point(“../)
You get them from typing only, but you can click ”Help“ - ”Show help pane" on the menu to always be able to read aside on what you need to do.
