Image Texturing Properties - Environment (Composition by gtoledo3)

This is a composition that fleshes out a macro, and concept that I use quite a bit.

This shows how to use image texturing properties to create an environment, and then how to manipulate the translation of of the texture so that it seems as though the entire environment moves.

This technique is useful because it allows a scene to "move" without altering actual X/Y/Z coordinates of "camera" (eg., placing things in a 3D transform, and moving).

This composition also illustrates the simple use of a gradient renderer as a lighting effect.

This is a mix of a height field from mask with emboss filter, with a blend mode that adds color of the source back in. I've used this extensively for a long time, and thought it might be useful to post.

This is a simple particle tools scene that makes something that looks like a rain fall. I've used it when wanting a scene to look like there is some rain going on somewhere; it doesn't seem especially taxing on my laptop.

Edit: If running with Snow Leopard, QC should be run in 32 bit mode. Do this by finding your Quartz Composer app in the Developer folder, performing a "get info", and checking off 32 bit mode.

I'm posting this to show how to do "line structure" style drawing with all stock patches.

This has some provisions for color and thickness as well, so you can have lines of differing color and weight on screen at the same time.
