Hi! I am trying to create an app that exports images, I just found movie exporter so I used this patch. With only one click it creates a 2/3 frame video. and then a movie importer to show the image on the screen. I found that the movies made with the 'movie exporter' don't load well with the image importer. After I save the file with QC they load though... is it the codec? Also there is a problem with the 'create image importer' java patch. is it a bug?? Check the file attached!

Thank you!!

There's the image writer plug that could be better for this kind of thing. There isn't much control (it generates filenames automatically, and it exports continuous when enabled. A pulse signal will do the trick for one image most of the time).

Install in the /Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Plug-Ins/ folder.

I was wondering if anyone made a more advanced version of this patch with more control over filenaming and exporting? It was an example patch with the previous xcode, so it shouldn't be that hard to fix i presume.

Oh and if you want to go with the movie exporter, use the movie importer instead of the image importer.

Right. Image writer patch isn't the answer for what i am looking for. this just creates png's with no control of how many i need. No time control. Still think movie exporter is the answer for now but it doesn't save the movies correctly to load them later... :(

Ah ok, i've changed it, you forgot to add a .mov extention in the movie exporter, and i've replaced the image loader with the movie loader.

I would say "I resemble that remark", except that you actually named me :)
