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.
Struggling to make a simple timer. I've looked at the example compositions for the Measure Time node but I still can't do a simple reset of timer after 3 seconds. Want something to appear given an event, start counting time, and then hide a layer when a certain time has elapse, all doable, then reset the Measure Time node.
When I try to use a Greater Than node, it fires an event every time the node receives one (and a false value) which is every frame. How can I make a "Block Events if Value is False" construct to place after the GT node?
More of a question than an answer Jaymie, but in the past when I've tried to organise sub comps inside the …/Modules folders by putting sub comps in a second layer of folders (organised say by author or project) I've found they don't load. If you have a symbolic link working I'm wondering if you've changed something to allow Vuo to land comps from sub-folders in the …/Modules folders?
Hi Jaymie when I simply replicate a vuo file the same as yours (Make Color Layer patch only) I don't get the bug.
But when I'm working on sub compositions used in my own Vuo files I consistently have this problem. See screenshot. Attached a sub-composition for you to examine. Try creating an output called acceleration. Not possible for me, Vuo will always append the lowest number not used by another output port already. Even if I delete all the output ports first.
