Particle Overdose

Posted in crisis, experimental with tags , , , on April 25, 2012 by Francois Wunschel

It just seems that I’ll never be finished with particles.
It’s been at least my tenth plugin/attempt at coding some fancy particles for QC. Experimenting with forces, flocking, sin/cos/tan functions, perlin noise vs simplex noise, trails, damping, gravitation, kinect controls, audio reactivity …
Here are some snapshots of my latest iteration, intended to be used in our new show in-the-making, “CRISIS”.
These particles are controlled by sensors and Ableton Live…
Hopefully we’ll be able to present a short show teaser at the Mapping Festival, on May 12th.

_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)

_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.
