_1024_MetaBalls QCPlugin

Meatballs Metaballs, yeah, how original.
These ones come with hair, so I’d rather call them Big Fat Hairy Balls, on the CPU.

Uses the marching cube method, from sources taken here and there on the net.
(big up to Andreas Jonsson, Matthew Ward, Jeff Lander, Paul Bourke and Paul Baker for their great references.)
The plugin is still highly un-optimised, using direct GLcalls for hair instead of vertex arrays. So there’s plenty of room for enhancement.

Sample files in the download archive  (including a pretty cool audio reactive comp.)
