So I made a comment about plastering together some Python modules to get “NodeBox plus a high end image processing substrate.” Turns out NodeBox already has Numpy baked in as of version 1.9.3. Should have done a little background research.
Looks like there’s some wheels I won’t have to reinvent. Would be nice if NodeBox had the Python Imaging Library included. This would make loading a wide variety of image formats into Numpy arrays quite easy. But incorporating that module into NodeBox will make a nice little personal project.
