v002 Optical Flow 2.0

Render In Image | GLSL | OpenCL | v002

I've been lately seeking to get some good results using Meshes within Render in Image to then be further processed via v002 Rutt Extra. Although the input line shows a rendering image when RII is set to 2D [textured or not], the rendering of all imagery ceases at such a setting and can only be obtained using a Rectangle setting.

There seems to be a bit of incompatibility twixt GLSL Shaders and Mesh Renderers too, although I'm pretty sure I've discovered a quick and dirty workaround for that.

Please find attached the music visualizer protocol version. It employs the otherwise automatically jiggly mesh construction , v002 Rutt Extra & a .dae that I've also attached for completeness.

I'll be uploading the GLSL problem example later today :-) That one employs v002 Optical Flow.

I hasten to add that these compositions can be easily modified to work by means of not trying to 2D the RII or juxtaposing a Mesh Renderer anywhere near, above or to the side of a GLSL Shader patch.


As it happens the GLSL problem seems to be entirely dependent upon the kind of shader that is employed to reproduce the problem referred to as I now have textured Meshes via GLSL shading

Date: 2009.11.11
Compatibility: 10.5, 10.6
Required plugins:

Requires Kineme3D, v002 Optical Flow 2.0, v002 Blurs 2.0 and Ribbon2.fbx 3D object file. Ribbon2.fbx must be kept in the same folder as RibbonDance2a.qtz.

This study, a variation on Abeilles Azurées, incorporates Vade's v002 Optical Flow 2.0 plugin, recently updated for Quartz Composer 4 and OS X 10.6. The ReadMe contains several usage examples.

The composition will function properly as an image filter effect in CamTwist. It's also functional in VDMX, but hasn't been extensively vetted in that application. Input splitters have been included on all the published ports at root. If you use it in VDMX, let me know how it goes for you.

RibbonDance2a.zip contains RibbonDance2a.qtz, Ribbon2.fbx and a ReadMe.
