Hi, I'll try and explain this as best I can and hope that someone might have some tips.

I have a shape with curved edges with a luma gradient on it and I want to use a custom diamond grid to basically do 2 things:

1. Make the edges of the shape fit the diamond grid, so I will end up with sharp edges rather than round ones.

2. Get each grid hole to be a flat colour taken from the average colour of the gradient beneath it.

Ultimately it will be the same as a pixelated style but with diamonds rather than squares. Anybody have any ideas on how to achieve this? Or if there's a plug in that might help?
