v002 Film: Lomo QC plugin problem

ellenpan's picture

Hi, I am totally new to QC. I want to create a composition which content a video with v002 Film: Lomo Effect. So I use: clear, billboard, v002:Film Lomo patches and also a video clip that directly drag from finder. but I really don't know how to connect the patches correctly. I am able to render image from video clip to billboard, but not when I try to link the plugin.

I know it may be too simple to ask here, but I just can't figure it out. Thanks!


Apple's Image Exporter Plugin

volkerk's picture

I want to be able to write images out of QC and Apple's "Image Exporter" plugin is a good start. Unfortunately, it does not allow for custom file names, only the path. Files are always called "Image-00001.png" and the index is increased every time a new image is written.

I tried to muck around with the plugin source code to change it that the path input is used as path + filename. but it turned out i do not know enough about c#, tried but could not figure it out.

i know it is very simple, this is the relevant code snippet:

fileURL = [NSURL fileURLWithPath:[Bad link]];
imageDestination = (fileURL ? CGImageDestinationCreateWithURL((CFURLRef)fileURL, kUTTypePNG, 1, NULL) : NULL);

how do i change it to use self.inputPath as the path and filename?

Tiltshift Plugin for AE, Final cut & Motion

I'm trying to create a plugin effect Tiltshift "with FxFactory to use in Aftter Effects and Final cut. The filter is quite close to the result I want. but I do not tweak the lens blur Fx characteristic of Tiltshift. There are many tutorials for this FX in PS or AE, but are based on a combination of filters and layers to get the result. Examples: or (in Spanish

My intention is to create a plugin all in one. Launch the plug and go. My first test was using Gaussian Blur, worse today and made a change by Box Blur and gives much better results. But I think it would be much more successful getting a lens blur fx. Here is a demo of my plugin running in AE: I searched but did not and managed to find an appropriate combination using NI blurs, or VADE blur plugins.

my question is, how I can create a filter with the properties of lens blur?

Accelerometer plugin

Hi there.

I am working on a project that requires me to interpret accelerometer input in quartz composer.

I'd like to end up with a patch that allows me to use that input to control a game I'm involved in the development of.

So far I've used the wiimote plugin, and a wiimote to control it, but I'd like to end up with a different hardware setup.

I've researched other hardware solutions and I have 1 of them to test with already: There are already some resources supplied on the website but I haven't been able to make it work with snow leopard/quartz composer. Maybe they just need to be rewritten.

I'm open to using different hardware if somebody knows of a better way of doing it. I am able to offer financial compensation if someone can solve this puzzle.

if you have a solution, or the expertise to find a solution I'd be very interested in hearing from you.

Kind regards Allan
