_1024_Image_to_Sound 1.2

Posted in QC plugins, quartz composer with tags , , , on September 3, 2010 by Francois Wunschel

Bugfix 1.2 version.
Bangnoise and GT kindly noted that the initial plugin would NOT go through start:/stop: execution cycle.
It was a stupid bug on my side, it actually took 2 minutes to fix, less than the time to write this post.
Stop/Start the comp, Enable/Disable the plugin, now all working correctly.
Thanks Tom + Georges for noting this.
Download the updated version.

_1024_Image_to_Sound QCplugin

Posted in experimental, QC plugins, quartz composer with tags , , , , , on August 7, 2010 by Francois Wunschel

since I just managed to get ImageBufferRepresentation working into quartz composer plugin,
I thought that I could whip up a tiny plugin to convert a bitmap image into an audio buffer.
Image to sound….
Some here’s the plug, 10.5/10.6, with sample file included – intel only.
The buffer size is actually 1024 (guess why ?), so the plugin will only convert the first 1024 pixels of the image,
starting from the upper left corner. A 32*32 pixels image input is optimal, no need for bigger size.
2 modes are available: average pixel value or RGB.
Download from the box, as usual. Any comments welcome.

and used in conjonction to vade’s Glitch plugin:

_1024_Synth / openFrameworks-based QC plugin ?

Posted in experimental, QC plugins, quartz composer with tags , , , , , , on June 25, 2010 by Francois Wunschel

I recently reconsidered using OpenFrameworks for live visuals/installations.
So i had a quick go at vade’s ofxQCPlugin addon for OF, that allows to bundle an OF app into a QC plugin.
It just turned out to work “almost” out of the box (thanks to my prior attempt at compiling it, a few months ago).

Here’s the plugin, which is just a copy paste of OF’s audio output example.
It will produce a synth sound according to your mouse coordinates.
It is unfortunately compiled in debug mode, for 32 bit only, 10.5 – 10.6

The baaad point is the plugin’ filesize (a nice 18mb unzipped), due to the whole OF being present inside the plug.
Enable / Disable won’t work properly, so this plug still has the “highly experimental not properly working” status.
Despite these quirks, i still find it kewl to be able to synth sounds from within the QC environment.

To test it (at your own risks ), download from the box !
