UPDATE: My Initial Discoveries on QC tand Kinect

Quartz Alternatives Presentation: zip file of materials, outline (.pdf).

Adventures in Quartz, my virtual presentation for INTED 2012, Valencia, Spain.

Intro to QC 4 – – with some tips for importing your 3D geometries into it.

My First Set of QC Comps — most using live video inputs. Add a QuickTime Clips and Stills.

Second and Third Sets of OC comps —multiple video frames; image filter and club background.

Sets Four Through Six plus Original Club Lisa QC Comps

Sound Comps plus Paint Globs

The Datamosh plug-in  More about Datamosh in the ‘Vocabularies‘ section of my book.

The Video Synth plug-in and more QC comps (and background on Rutt-Etra Video Synth).

Curly Code 3D drawing system for QC, unfortunately not a public beta, but some inspiring work!

(NOTE: As of this writing, Datamosh plug-in only works in 32-bit mode in QC. Find the QC app icon, select it, press command-i for info, and select ‘open in 32-bit mode’. Also, both Rutt-Etra and Datamosh are plug-ins you have to add to your QC plug-in folder – – Hard Drive > Library > Graphics > Quartz Composer Plug-ins )
