Release: Texture, v0.4

Release Type: Production
Version: 0.4
Release Notes

Texture Patch

This is the first public release of our "Texture" patch --- a set of 26 patches for procedural texture generation, using techniques derived from Perlin Noise.

This is pretty much a 1-to-1 translation of the excellent libnoise project, so the standard libnoise documentation applies verbatim.

Unlike other patches, this patch is LGPL consequent to libnoise being LGPL.

Known issues:

  • module::Curve and module::Terrace haven't yet been translated as they require some additional interface elements not currently present in Quartz Composer.
  • The new "KinemeTexture" QCPort type doesn't properly handle cable removal --- so the Texture port is left hanging with a stale object. If you try to save the composition while a Texture port is disconnected, QC will throw the following exception:
    -[KinemeTexturePort stateValue]: Function not implemented
    (This exception isn't the problem itself, just a side-effect. Any ideas about how we can catch the cable removal action?) When this happens, don't panic --- you should be able to recover from the exception, attach a cable, and save the composition properly.
