Cannot install Kineme3D on Snow Leopard

piruleiro's picture

hello, I am running an (up to date) Snow Leopard based MacBook Pro. I downloaded the demo of Kineme3D. I copied the plugin into the "system wide" plugin folder, and in the user local folder too. Anyway, I cannot see the plugin in Quartz Composer library. Note that I've already installed third-party plugin with success, in the recent past. Where I'm wrong?

Prescription.

1 - Don't have more than one copy of the same plugin installed - ever ! :-)

2 - Ensure that only one copy of the Kineme3D plugin is installed to only one location :- /Users/username/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Patches

and nowhere else :-) [IMHO YMMV].

Shut down QC, re-open, try the example compositions, they should work AOK.

[You can also install KinemeCore and this will automatically install plugins on the fly - http://kineme.net/release/KinemeCore/05 - amongst other things]

Hey, now I know why it did'nt work! I put it inside /Users/username/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Plugins. I thought it was the obvious position...(?) Anyway, inside the patches it works. thanks.
