How To: Unique, Interesting, Abstract Polygons in Quartz Composer

After using the Polygon Mode patch a bunch, I figured I would put up a how-to on making different shapes other than the typical square, cylinder, sphere, etc...

Line Sphere (Composition by gtoledo3)

Author: gtoledo3
License: (unknown)
Date: 2010.05.02
Compatibility: 10.5, 10.6
Required plugins:

This is a basic composition that shows how to construct a sphere shape by using GL Lines (GL Tools patch required), Iteration, Interpolation, and LFO's.

By using GL Lines, one has control over many interesting Stipple Patterns, and color control, that aren't available with a stock Sphere, while it has other limitations compared to the stock Sphere (no ability to texture the whole shape, only the lines which comprise the constructed Sphere).

This patch will not work well in a Lighting environment due to the nature of GL Line.
