‘M8 Trace’ Quartz Composer effect

Following up on a thread on the Vidvox user forums, this effect recreates the ‘trace’ look from Modul8. It’s Image Filter compliant, so it should work in all programs that support Quartz Composer Image Filters.

It uses a Core Image kernel originally written by Memo Akten to apply a luma key.

    Thanks for the heads up, Hiltmeyer. I’ve added a little notice about this in the post itself.

    hi guys,

    i am checking out your cool qtz fx.
    to reach my goal, i changed the “blending mode” in billboard from “add” to “overlay”.
    now every “coat” of light is getting on the TOP of the other.

    my question:
    is there a way to get then UNDER the previous “coat”?

    hope i could express my question well;)
    thanx in advance,
    Smo

      I don’t have the patch open right now, but have you tried setting the ‘render number’ of the feedback billboard to be 1 under the render number of the movie billboard? I’m talking about the numbers in the top right of the patches, which you can change the order of by clicking on them…

      Hope that helps!
