Comission or Possible for 5-day-old Newbie

alreese's picture

How do I make a patch that allows for one to "erase" an image, reveal another, erase that image reveal another, etc. so on; kind of like erasing Photoshop layers. Ideally the patch that I want to make would not be mouse controlled, maybe sometime in the near future it wont be BUT for now I need a starting point of interactivity. I've been experimenting but I just can't figure it out, it is something I would like to incorporate into a larger submission for an artsy-fartsy show, so there is a deadline of 12/19. Would this be best left to someone seasoned a la commission?

Thanks, -ar

You could just do a slide show, with a blank image every other image. Figure out how to transistion between each slide to get the effect you want. It would be a good project if you're new, there are plenty of examples and tutorials, just google quartz composer slide show and there are a whole bunch of starting points.

I was kind of thinking more along the lines of gtoledo3 eraserhead patch, thus not really a slideshow; but, yeah there a ton of rich / helpful resources on this site and else where. Maybe there will be a happy accident sometime during my experimental endeavors.
