# Morphy, pawn to queen

## Recommended Posts

Ever wondered what happens when a pawn promotes to a queen?

I made a network that morphs from one poly to another. Next step: connect the dots, but I haven't found a way to split a list into seperate lists of equal lengths. Also I haven't found a way to change the starting index of a polyline in a network. It can be done manually with decompose - erase line at starting point - compose - close.

Help with these questions would be appreciated.

PS: The Mix2-node is quite complicated. I worked out how it works, but some explanation for new marioneteers could be usefull.

You can use the Chunk List node to split your list.

In Vectorscript we recreate the polygon/polyline as changing the vertices took way to long.

@ Marissa: I did use chunk list the list, but I didn't know how to handle the resulting list. Have you got any tips where I can find more information on working with lists?

Without the knowledge how to work with the"chunk list"-node, I decided to do it another way. By making a multiple extrude from the two poly's I have been able to cut out the polys that make the change from pawn to queen. So an improvement on the previous version: The drawing now consists of polylines in stead of dots. And the extrusion is a nice bonus.

Clever workaround!

After making the pawn-queen morphy, I continued working on the node and made a tessellation of the morph. See explanation below

I've made a new tesselated morphy with puzzle-peaces and cleaned up the network a bit so that I can upload it here. Save first.
