_1024_NETWORK send/receive QuartzComposer Plugin
For some upcoming installation i’ll need a complete inter-app data procedure.
OSC would mean data re-formatting, no thanks.
Apple’s built-in Network Broadcaster lets you send only strings.
So I made this little plugin thats sends QCstructures directly through the local network,using Bonjour/ZeroConf – meaning no hassle for anyone – .
It is based on ThoMoNetwork framework, which is great, because it will probably allow me to run it on iPad as well.
What’s nice about QCstructure is that they can contain almost everything QC:
boolean, index, string, color, number and image.
Yes, you can send images with this plugin.
However big fat greasy images can harm your computer, or your network, as they would be sent uncompressed.
Be warned. Use this plugin at your own risk.
