Delay Signal

scalf's picture


Has anybody been able to create a patch that functions as a delay for a signal?

Imagine pressing a key and the signal is delayed 1 second before arriving at the rendering patch. I know this is a classic action in computer science but I can't figure out how to cleanly delay the signal and allow for multiple signal to reside in wait.

Any tips are appreciated.

Hey everyone! I would really appreciate any help!!!

I'm new to Quartz Composer and need to make a composition that I believe is quite simple- but I don't really know what I'm doing. I am trying to take realtime video from an external USB webcam (or my iSight, if that is easier) and put it on a delay of as long as possible. I think I read somewhere that 20 seconds will be about the maximum because it takes a lot of computing power or something. So really, all i need is to display the video input on a slight delay. if someone could take a screencapture or something of how to set this up that would be amazing.

I am running on a dual core MacBook Pro OS X 10.5.8

Oh.... and I have to figure this out by tomorrow morning.... :/ THANKS!

This composition is a type of time blur, that also has some pseudo volumetric capabilities and additional settings that take advantage of the "sparkles" that sobel filters create.
