RE: Is it possible do this processing.gif in drawbot?
Almost the same code, but instead of drawing a grid we draw 1000 circles randomly. As they have to stay in the same place, we save their locations in an array.
(Also in this script some nice code to have if you want to publish animated gifs; a way to reduce the colours in the gif.)

RE: How to code a gif that make the text flash
This will make an animated gif with two frames, one frame with text, the other without, thus creating the illusion of flashing text.
w = 500 h = 500 newPage(w,h) # Draw a black background fill(0) rect(0, 0, w, h) # Draw gray text fill(0.2) font("TimesItalic", 190) text("FLASH", (w/2, h/2), align="center") newPage(w,h) # Draw a black background fill(0) rect(0, 0, width(), height()) saveImage("rapid flashing.gif")

RE: Is it possible do this processing.gif in drawbot?
@pi That is exactly my solution. It’s not elegant, but it’s quick and it works.
Below is the Applescript I used. If you name your paths in Illustrator and put the names in pathNames it will copy the coordinates of the points and corresponding control points to an array you can paste in DrawBot.
on run set pathNames to {"segment_concave"} set pathsArray to "segment = [" tell application "Adobe Illustrator" activate set docRef to current document repeat with pathName in pathNames set pointsArray to "[" set itemRef to path item pathName of docRef set pointsRef to every path point of itemRef repeat with pointRef in pointsRef  anchor point set pointAsString to "[" set x to my string_float(item 1 of anchor of pointRef) set y to my string_float(item 2 of anchor of pointRef) set pointAsString to pointAsString & "(" & x & "," & y & "), "  left bcp set x to my string_float(item 1 of left direction of pointRef) set y to my string_float(item 2 of left direction of pointRef) set pointAsString to pointAsString & "(" & x & "," & y & "), "  right bcp set x to my string_float(item 1 of right direction of pointRef) set y to my string_float(item 2 of right direction of pointRef) set pointAsString to pointAsString & "(" & x & "," & y & ")" set pointAsString to pointAsString & "]" set pointsArray to pointsArray & pointAsString & ", " end repeat set pointsArrayLength to length of pointsArray set pointsArray to (characters 1 through (pointsArrayLength  2) of pointsArray) as string set pointsArray to pointsArray & "]" set pathsArray to pathsArray & pointsArray & ", " end repeat set pathsArrayLength to length of pathsArray set pathsArray to (characters 1 through (pathsArrayLength  2) of pathsArray) as string set pathsArray to pathsArray & "]" end tell activate set the clipboard to pathsArray log pathsArray end run on string_float(s) set s to s as string set new_s to "" repeat with c in s if c as string is equal to "," then set c to "." set new_s to new_s & c as string end repeat return new_s end string_float

RE: Is it possible do this processing.gif in drawbot?
A simple example of how to move the wave through a grid of dots. The position of the dots does not matter.
@frederik probably has a better and more robust solution for this also

RE: Is it possible do this processing.gif in drawbot?
 I don’t think you need a radial grid.
If you base the timing of the animation of one hexagon on its distance to the center point, I believe you get the same effect as in your example.

RE: Is it possible do this processing.gif in drawbot?
 Changing the bezierhandle is a simple as calculating a point between two extremes, based on a percentage, based on how far you are in your animation.
(Check out easings.net to create smoother animations)

RE: Is it possible do this processing.gif in drawbot?
 Without doing too much math, and using some ugly constants, you can draw a segment of the hexagon.
Draw and rotate it six times, and you have the basis of the hexagon.
