Apple Script

Quartz Crystal

so im playing around with the new crystal today and came up with some interesting ideas. i would like to be able to have some external control of crystal.

lets say i have a directory scanner on my server watching an uploads folder. when a new video is uploaded it would be great if there was someway to tell crystal from qc to start rendering "this" composition meaning the open comp with directory scanner.

i'm not sure if some apple script dictionary or network type of tools could be made for crystal but i think it would be a cool feature to have. maybe a crystal plugin that saves the open comp to another name then offline renders the saved comp from the open comp ?

not sure if i explained my self right or not. just think vimeo..... your video is waiting to be processed. that way you could apply effectsor embed water marks to uploaded content etc.. stuff like that. ;)

OSCeleton / Tryplex Applescript

Nothing really important but I think it can be useful...

Here is a little AppleScript to run OSCeleton, sendosc then run a composition in Quartz Composer.

I can't manage to make the "fullscreen" automatic though...

Check the paths in the script to adapt to your own path.

Not sure if an Apple Script plugin for QC exists or not, seemed like a good idea to me. Control iTunes from within your composition. 10.6 64/32bit build. Source and Example Included.
