Quartz Composer – CINDER / plugin

Posted in experimental, QC plugins, quartz composer, software with tags , , , , , on July 23, 2010 by Francois Wunschel

There’s a big buzz on the internet about Cinder, a c++ framework for creative coding.
Some say it is much more complicated than openFrameworks,
so i decided to give it a go an check by myself if I could use Cinder’libs
to make some QC plugins.
And it just turned out to be much easier than doing the same with openFrameworks…

Here’s a snaphot showing QC running a Cinder-based plugin.
There’s actually a linker problem with the Boost library (with Cinder) that prevents me from using
ci::Rand functions, so I had to re-code Perlin-noise and Random functions by myself.
No big deal.
Stay tuned for more info, and a plugin soon.
