Release Notes

Changes since QuartzBuilder 1.2

  • Added option to store values of published input parameters between built application launches (net.kineme.qb.saveInputParameters composition key).
  • Added option to force aspect ratio on built application window (net.kineme.qb.aspectRatio composition key).
  • Added option to stop rendering composition when built application loses focus (net.kineme.qb.pauseWhenUnfocused composition key).
  • Added ability to copy from / paste into the published parameters window of built applications.
  • Added option to select the architecture of the built application (32-bit/64-bit universal, 64-bit-only, or 32-bit-only). If plugins required by the built application are 32-bit-only or 64-bit-only, the architecture is selected automatically.
  • QuartzBuilder now automatically reloads compositions after they’ve been edited and saved in the Quartz Composer Editor.
  • Fixed issue with using registered Kineme plugins in built applications.
  • Fixed issue where file timestamps in built applications were incorrect.
  • QuartzBuilder is now Intel-only — both the application itself and built applications.

Known Issues

  • To build an application that contains 32-bit-only plugins, you must run QuartzBuilder in 32-bit mode. (To choose a 32-bit-only architecture for the built application, you do not need to run QuartzBuilder in 32-bit mode.)

Release: QuartzBuilder, v1.2

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.2
Release Notes

QuartzBuilder 1.2 adds User-interactive Composition Parameters, more minor performance improvements, improved security, improved resource location, and improved Snow Leopard compatibility (including gesture support).

Release: QuartzBuilder, v1.1

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.1
Release Notes

QuartzBuilder 1.1 features numerous performance enhancements, including a state-of-the-art Iterator Accelerator that reduces iterator overhead by 5-15% and streamlined event handling. You're also able to launch an app in fullscreen mode on any monitor of your choice, in addition to having screen count and dimensions provided to the composition at runtime. Drag and Drop support and fade-in/out on start up/exit options were also added, to make your apps really shine.

Automatic updating via Sparkle was added, and you're now able to explicitly install the QuartzBuilder Protocol template from the App Menu.
