Watch pt. 1 here.

Let’s spread a bit of joy and dive into VEX and Houdini-SOPs again to implement a really neat technique from a french/dutch paper covering graph bundling. While graph bundling is usually found in network analysis or geovisualization, we’re gonna adapt the setup a bit to be able to use it for smooth animations of self-organizing graphs. (That means set of strings in our case…)

EDIT: It’s been brought to our attention that there is another neat graph bundling technique based off of another paper which the amazingly talented Junichiro Horikawa implemented in a tutorial available here: https://youtu.be/0teBLrKZ8gU
