Quartz Composer Integration

Post by gavspav »

As this isn't cross platform I guess its way down the list.

Would be good though!

How about a FreeFrame GL wrapper for QC compositions? Thats probably not even possible.

Oh well

Quartz Composer is really interesting, we've been playing around with it for a while.
First though we would like to release the 3.0.2 version and then we will have a look into building support for QC.
It's too easy not to, and of course the competitors have support for this as well.

Edwin- Would integrating with Quartz Composer let us use effects that can be used in Quartz Composer? (emulators, etc?)

I'm keenly interested in this, especially given the current lack of FFGL plugins.

Would there be any way to use QC functionality in Windows within an FFGL wrapper, or does it require OSX binaries in which case I guess not.

Well... Yes and no. No because Quartz Composer is largely dependent on proprietary Apple technologies like Core Image and the overall Quartz framework. But yes because those technologies are in turn dependent on the GPU, which can be addressed from any OS. When it comes right down to it, Quartz Composer is just a nifty graphical interface for easily stringing OpenGL commands together. If you have the patience and time to do the dirty work, there's no reason QC patches can't be ported to other formats. I don't know that much about FFGL but VVVV or just straight GLSL come to mind.

Personally I prefer anxiously holding my breath till the Resolume devs implement full on QC support! Quartz Composer FTW!

PS So what's the word on QC4.0 and Snow Leopard support then eh? ;-)
