K3D rotation bugs

Somewhere along the line, kineme switched whatever it's using for the model loader library. From that point on, tons of models changed rotation and size values, rendering hundreds of compositions of mine as restoring incorrectly when people open them now, with no kind of prompt for the user, but also rendering the older compositions pretty much useless unless one does major re-edits.

Is there some kind of way of having old versions of the patch, concurrent with whatever the new library is? Is there something you guys could do to tag stuff, ala gl tools "deprecated patch" functionality? Short of that, which was the last version that had the old rotation and sizes? I know this has been like this for awhile, but in looking at a lot of old compositions today, I'm realizing how unfortunate it is for none of them to restore correctly.

GL linestructure and pointstructure patch not available in library

Some comps aren't working and they are throwing missing patch errors for patches from GL tools.

Dug around and don't see any of the GLtools patches in my library now.

Kineme Core in QC 4.5

I'm running Mac OSX 10.7.1 and quartz composer 4.5. When I have Kineme Core 0.52 installed, quartz composer crashes everytime I try to connect one patch to another.

Please find enclosed the report.


Kineme Network Tools loses key in Preferences Plist

I have been unable to reproduce this bug manually, but it occurs on at least weekly basis (running 24 hours a day). It happens on 20 different machines, usually at the same time (but not always), and I think may be related to intermittent network access (network drops, NetworkTools is activated).

Somehow net.kineme.NetworkTools.plist is losing the "NTKey" entry. I've attached a working .plist and a corrupted one that is missing the NTKey entry. I've changed the extension to .txt to allow attachment.

Iterator Crash

i made a little effect in QC which iterates Sprites. It works well in QC app, but when i trying to use in 3rd party QC capable apps (tested with my app CoGe, also with VDMX and Resolume Avenue), it recently crashes when i turn off Crosses and changing the Number of Crosses parameter ( which changing iterations count in QC).

I have an MBP 13" with nVidia 320M.

I'm not sure is a QC bug, or just missed some QC design patterns that cause the issue.



Note: i'm already posted this to the QC dev list but the list is seems to be dead..

End Position for Audio File Player

I have been using your audio patches recently and find them to be the best for QC I have found since yet.

However I would like to ask of one feature in particular, specifically of the Audio File Player Patch. I am trying to set queue points for tracks and the "starting position" input works great. I would like to ask for a customizable "end point" that would end the track, or loop it from that point.


Ability to set layer order

Hi is there anyway we could set the layer order manually, so one could avoid depth sort?

v002 screen capture fail to work with histogram

i cannot get v002 video capture to function with histogram in QC 4.0. the video input device works fine, any image source seems to work with histogram. i've tried combining video capture with other image and video, but no valid histogram data is available.

anyone else have this issue?

Clip Icon for Editor - Kinemecore

It would be great if we could get an icon on the Editor to push qtz's/macros to the Clip folder location in developer tools, so that we can regain this (imo, vastly superior) alternative to virtual patches, in the QC workflow.

FWIW, clips still work, and I usually handle this by dropping them it into a location on my Finder side bar.

I'm marking this as "started, inactive", since kinemecore is already a working patch, and this is a feature request on that.
