Currently use QC to make custom layers for Bonix TV - a vision mixing kind of application for OS X with a kind of QC stack of layers, each layer being a composition with published ports and some protocols for data types. Also generate sports graphics and twitter feeds and so on for video score boards at large sporting venues.
Spent a few years learning Quartz Composer as my way back into coding from a decade away doing design related work. Film, graphics, studied Architecture for a few years and got involved in publishing then film. Now moving into front side web development. Hope to get into app dev with Vuo and rapid app prototyping.
Thanks for the advice on Execute Shell CommandJaymie.
Have TeamVuo done any performance testing using python scripts in the Execute Shell Script? I assume the only way to bind data as input and output (to function like any other node in a composition) would be to serialise it into script statements using text processing nodes and then parse the text output from Execute Shell Script into data types as required?
