Very late I know, but it is still possible to use Quartz Composer compositions as screen savers under Mojave. You'll need a cheap third-party screen saver module called Backgrounds, but it does work:

That's fantastic — really, really helpful. I'm sure I can get somewhere close to what I want now. Your assistance is hugely valued, and I think I'm going to have to go and buy Vuo Pro soon. :)

Thanks so much to both of you for the examples you've offered. I think I'll be able to get somewhere a little closer with these hints, though it'll take a little work to get my existing line-based craziness moved to vuo.

So you know what I'm trying to create, here's one of my works from a few years back. I have a few more recent things based on this which I'm looking to translate:

Converting from Quartz Composer

Hi -

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.
