Making Xcode application

steve holmes's picture

Hi guys I am slowly learning Quartz Composer and have a few patches I would like to use for a digital signage project. What I need is to be able to launch the patches full screen at different times of the day through ical.

So what I would like to do is wrap a quartz composition in an xcode application so when it is launched from ical it goes to full screen automatically and loops.

I have had a look at the xcode examples like quartz player and would like to adapt this code for my needs but I can't seem to get it to load my compostion, without selecting it when quartz player loads.

So I am really needing some advice on how to achieve an application that loads a quartz composition and goes to fullscreen and whether there is a better way to do this.

Thanks for the help. Steve

steve... if i'm in newcastle

steve, i'm writing this on the train back from newcastle, so the timing is less than stellar but i could help you with this. in the tiger days i released the *spark titler, which has the code you need, and there's a better way to do it now in leopard.

sending through an xcode project shouldn't be so hard, but ideally we should sit down for a day and go through this whole world. not sure when i'll next be in newcastle, but i certainly have been up and down like a yo-yo of late.

toby

Wiki?

This seems like a task that lots of people may like to do and it is something that I know I would like to be able to do. Would it be too much trouble for you to put together a Wiki entry on the process?

wiki !

I started a wiki topic for this a couple days ago actually: http://kineme.net/wiki/ProgrammingWithQuartzComposer

Feel free to create specific pages or sections for accomplishing this, and we (kineme + everyone) can fill in details as time permits.
