KinemeStructureMaker patch unable to be found

Oirien's picture

I could use a touch of help, I've not been able to get this patch to work regardless of how I seem to approach it so I hereby request some help, I've tried using both the DataTools patch and the old Structure tools patch, neither have which seem to be able to be found, I've tried using no patches at all except either of those, as well as in conjunction with GLTools and KinemeCore, if someone could explain a way of getting it to work I'd be most appreciative.

Cheers Rob

This is the error report with nothing but the Data Tools patch installed in either the plugins or the patches folder.

Re: KinemeStructureMaker patch unable to be found

@Oirien: Please use the latest version of DataTools, not the obsolete StructureTools plugin.

Kineme plugins should be placed in /Users/<you>/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Patches. ("Quartz Composer Patches", not "Plug-Ins". You will have to create the "Quartz Composer Patches" folder if this is your first time installing Kineme plugins.)

The error log you posted indicates that the composition you tried to load couldn't find the DataTools and GLTools patches it was expecting (but it doesn't provide any clues as to why it couldn't find them).

What version of OS X are you running?

When you launch QC, do you get any messages in the Console? (/Applications/Utilities/Console.app) If QC has trouble loading a plugin, it usually outputs a console message.
