More Complicated Patching in Quartz Composer

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

The root macro patch for the rotating Marilyn Cube in Quartz Composer.The second exercise of the week 7 KKB210: Computational Arts 1 tutorial was to have a look at a couple of files, cube-marilyn.qtz and 5-marilyn.qtz and effectively combine the two. The first file, cube-marilyn.qtz has a rotating cube, with a single Marilyn image on each side similar to what we had to make in the first exercise, except that it has two extra interpolations, so it now has one for each axis that it can rotate on. It also has a different duration on each axis, so it creates the appearance of changing speed. The second file, 5-marilyn.qtz contains a grid of four Marilyn images. They are all the same original image, but each of the four runs variations of exposure adjustments, gamma adjustments, alpha masks, colour inverts and other effects.

Introduction to Quartz Composer

Quartz Composer Exercise 1, Rotating CubeDuring week 7 of KKB210: Computational Arts 1, we were introduced to Quartz Composer. Quartz Composer uses patches to create a composition framework of audio and video through different classes and protocols.

Our first exercise was to make a rotating cube and apply the provided Marilyn painting to each side in a different colour. This was reasonably easy as the colours could all be controlled just by changing the settings in the cube Patch Inspector.
