Quartz Builder and User Nibs

jd's picture

Hello gang! 2 questions:

1.) Is there a way for the input parameters window to auto-open upon launch of a compiled QB app?

2.) The nib files are compiled (non-readable/editable) on a finished QB app. How/is there a way to use my own nib file using QB?

thanks! jd

  1. In the "Window Outputs" patch provided by the QuartzBuilder protocol template, you can set the "Parameters Visible" input to True --- this will cause the parameters window to open on startup.
  2. Currently we don't have a mechanism for loading user Nibs into a QuartzBuilder application. Please describe what you have in mind in some more detail, and we'll investigate adding support in a future release.

what would be great in a future release is support for quicktime movies in builder. currently this is not working. also a file open dialogue (image or mov) would be good to have.

@volkerk: I hear you. Unfortunately there's not a lot we can do about QuickTime not working in QuartzBuilder (among many other third-party Quartz Composer-using applications), due to some architectural issues with QuickTime.

We're working on an alternative, non-QuickTime-based video player patch.
