Quartz Composer tutorial #7: Awesome Line Drawer

This is a tutorial on how to use the Kineme GL Tools to create a simple line drawing composition.

You’ll need the following plugins and macros:
kineme.net/QuartzComposerPatches/StructureTools/0.1
kineme.net/release/AlphaBlendMode/10
kineme.net/release/GLTools/16
hybridvisuals.nl/downloads/vdmx-mouse-macro/

Installation instructions can be found on the respective sites.

As mentioned, I really would love to hear your feedback on the new style of commentary. I feel it’s a lot less boring, but I hope you can still follow everything. Let me know 😉

The patch is available here.

    I personally like the new style of commentary – I still have a pause button when I need it!

    I’m learning loads from these tutorials, as there isn’t a great deal of accessible information about QC out there…. please keep em coming.

    Thanks

    It´s pretty amazing what you can do.. =D I´m beginning to use Quartz composer, i find it kinda easy, but i think it can do more than the thing i´m doing. I tried to do this tutorial, but the plugins don´t appear in QC, well, i placed them in hdd/library/graphics/quartzcomposerplugins, but i don´t know if that´s right or if i have to place them somewhere else.

      Hey Sometries

      Good to hear you think QC is so easy! It sounds like you installed the plugins in the wrong directory. For installing the Kineme plugins, there is pretty extensive info on their website. Hope that will help you on your way!
