_1024_VectorFont QCPlugin

Posted in QC plugins, quartz composer, Uncategorized with tags , , on August 31, 2010 by Francois Wunschel

QC’s text capabilities are great, but sometimes you might need a tiny plugin to quickly render a vector font in 3d space.
That’s where this plug comes handy.
It’ll let you input a string and render it using openGL vector lines.
Hopefully in faster fashion than through rendering an image.
The plugin is still beta, as I’ve got to test its speed … but it should theoretically be faster than the stock method.
No font selection available, as every character is hardcoded as GL_LINES, using some data kindly borrowed from uglyfont.
Let me know any speed issues or possible bugs.

EDIT: I just added a Completion input to the string, inspired by ToneBurst’s excellent JS string patches. I also added a Speed Test sample file, that requires FSK’s tremendous Simplex Plugin. (you can download his plugin at Kineme.net)
EDIT2: Thanks to everyone for testing, the new version 1.1 features bugfix (string length), optimizations and is also compiled as universal 32/64 bit, Intel AND PPC…

Download from the box. Sample file included. 10.5/10.6


_1024_MATHStructure 1.1 update

I just uploaded a 1.1 version, that fixes a major memory leak.
Now the plugin should run fine, provided structures have the same number of members.

If you’re in UK this week end, the plugin will make an apparition at Global Gathering UK,
at the BOOMBOX project arena.
