A node that generates a 2D mesh that is able to be deformed with smooth curves. Useful for advanced projection mapping. Vuo is already able to do this using Paul Bourkes mesh deformation software, but a solution that allows custom control within Vuo of each point could be very useful for mapping onto irregular surfaces.

Otherwise possibly a way to generate mesh mapping values from within Vuo for the Mesh Mapping node.

As discussed on Node to generate Paul Bourke’s mesh data file (.data) format, this node would have the option to input either all grid points or just a subset of grid points. "The node assumes that if there is no values in the list- then it simple passes a perfect grid of values. If there are values in the list it uses them to deform the grid in the manner that is indicated."
