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.
I'm pretty sure I found a way to bundle some assets in Quartz Builder but I forget if fonts was one of those things, sure they will bundle but will they be loaded by the host OS?
Some kind of shell script that can run an AppleScript at startup would be quite nice. I'm sure Team Vuo have much higher priorities but it would be nice, and I could envisage some low-cost sellable screensavers and apps coming out of that.
Driving me crazy trying to do simple calculations on lists of numbers that I can't do in Calculate List nodes because the calculations refer to items of multiple lists or lists of multidimensional values or using different indexes on different lists at the same time in calculation. So calls for a roll your own loop.
I can't repeat it in a minimal scenario but it's in the file attached. 9 items in list and yet it counts them as 10, when I remove wire from port, number 10 is left as the constant input value for Maximum on the Count Through List Node.
Have you found a workaround?:
Yes. If I create a Count Items in List node attach it to the list and then the port, it collapses like the previous mini-node but this time has a value of 9 not 10. Weird.
I'm attaching the 3 nodes that are involved and it counts the list correctly there. But in the fuller example comp it is adding an element it's "10" instead of "9" when I Drag the cable from a share list node onto the Maximum port of the Count Through List Node. If I make a Count Items in List node and connect via that the correct value is used, and the node collapses to the mini-node format.
