looking to create interactive mesh


I was wondering if anyone knew how I could create something more or less exactly like this?

I want to be able to customize it etc…

Are there any tutorials out there that would get me there?


It looks like it was done with a Particle Emitter. Unreal has Cascade a Particle Emitter Manager to create effects with dots and lines.

Interactive mesh? How would you… interact with it?

You can achieve that effect with particles, scattered over the surface of an invisible sphere. Those little dots don’t need to be geometry; they can be simple sprites (2D planes) oriented towards the camera. If they’re more of them, like in the video, you won’t be able to tell anyway (and it won’t destroy your scene framerate either).
