I've got several compositions in Quartz Composer, and I'm trying to wrap my head around how I might convert them. Several of my pieces rely on features that don't seem to exist in Vuo, but if anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful. How can I find equivalents to:
Line Family. I'd like to make a series of lines, based on a start and end position and rotation, with a customisable attraction force and attraction point.
3D Transformation. This should be fairly straightforward, but the parent/child relationship is a little different — in QC I've got the Line Family (and its LFOs) inside the 3D Transformation parent patch, and in Vuo, I guess I should be using Make 3D Transform and just connecting nodes, right?
Replicate in Space. I'm guessing this is Copy 3D Object (TRS) or Copy Layer (TRS) but since it's not quite the same as the parent/child model, it's a little tricky. The QC version lets me give a final scale/orientation/rotatation/translation and decide how many copies I want, while the Vuo version requires a full list of each of those. Is there a good workaround?
Apologies if these are basic questions, but I'd love to keep my QC work alive going forward (especially as it's finally been deprecated) and Vuo's more different than I thought. Very much looking forward to the new v 2.0 and the possibility to create FCP X plug-ins and screen savers, too.
