_1024_VectorField QCPlugin

Posted in QC plugins, quartz composer with tags , , on March 21, 2012 by Francois Wunschel

Nah, not finished/polished, but worth a quick try.
Samples an image and draws primitive lines according to RGB data.
A few controls and some randomness allow a few nice effects.
Hoping to find the time to push it a bit further…

10.5/10.6, sample file included.
DL from the box (sort the box by date to have it on top of the list)

I just needed to retreive the MAC Address of my computer from inside a QTZ.

_1024_QuaternionToGLMatrix QCPlugin

Posted in QC plugins, quartz composer with tags , on February 11, 2012 by Francois Wunschel

Converts a Quaternion into an OpenGL Matrix.
For use with Kineme GLTools.
Download from the box, sample file included.

Note that you cannot interpolate quaternions directly,
it requires the use of a SLERP function
(Spherical Interpolation, which obviously I haven’t yet incorporated into a QC patch).

_1024_StructureMerge QCplugin

Posted in QC plugins, quartz composer with tags , , on August 23, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

I’m into DMX/Artnet structures at the moment,
and I just needed a tiny lightweight plugin to combine2 structures,
while preserving the keys and order
and keeping everything at the same level.

Faster than a javascript equivalent.

_1024_VL3000_Spot QC Plugin

Posted in DMX fixtures, QC plugins with tags , , on August 5, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

A little Quartz Composer Plugin to generate a structure of 8bit DMX values (0-255) for a Vari-Lite VL3000 Spot unit.

I just happen to have to control such a unit for an upcoming installation, so I thought I could share.
I’d be happy to know if it works as expected… any report welcome.
It should separate the Pan/Tilt… values automatically into two 8 bit packets.
Download from the box. 10.5-10.6 (untested on 10.7), universal 32/64.

and a few minor tweaks.

Use of this plug is ok for any artistic performance/project (paid, no problem) but is not permitted to use in a commercial product (as all _1024_Plugins)
