I want to make some animated objects inside a big array of cubes. Such as the attached image. Now while this is pretty easy to model, i want my objects to move inside this volume. Sort of like an animated boolean stencil that snaps to a full cube (i don't want cubes that are half on). All i need is to drive the color, they don't need to change scale or rotate.

Any ideas ?

Does the nodal texture editor hold some secrets that could make this happen ? The objects inside of that would be 3d models i'm animating so i'm not dealing with image maps.
