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.
Is it possible to do this with a Process List node and have the node run through all the values, all the smooth nodes are stateful, so I'm thinking I need to do it with an unstateful node like Curve which can perform the calculation each frame on successive point data for start position, end position, time, transition duration… does this sound right? Or can it be done with one of the Smooth patches or Crossfade inside a loop?
It is not obvious to me how Vuo works out where it will trigger an event(s) from with the Re-fire Event command. At different stages of building a composition I will see the animation of a firing event on a different node when I hit CMD+"T". COuld only find two mentions of Re-firing Event in the manual and this detail wasn't covered even in passing.
Thanks Chris, discovered the popups but didn't notice the Revert during the moments when I was pondering this.
I still think it's a barrier to learning that copied nodes don't revert to generic.
It's hard enough with the opacity of some ports refusing to connect to others for no apparent reason for the novice user to have to throw in the wildcard of 'maybe it should connect but you haven't learn about datatype resetting'
