inserting spheres at the vertices of a wire frame plane

good Morning!
Im animating the above image (couldnt upload the gif,) from a flat plane to what you see in the image.
I need to put “nodes” on the intersection of each vertices, they need to animate with the plane

Im trying to create a similar feel as the “plexus AE” plugin. i tried youtube tutorials and i can create stationary plane with nodes no problem, i dont know how to make them animate together.

I found a tutorial that showed me how to “make duplicates real” which gave me the individual object at the position of the vertices, but how do i parent each node to the vertices without having to individually do that at each position?

i created this with the wireframe modifier. i parented an ico sphere and duplicated verts, but i coudnt get the lines and spheres to show together. any suggestions?
