Export Xml data

Swiftlikeninja's picture

I am in need of some guidance. I am currently doing some data processing within quartz on various statistic that are being pulled live via xml. The need has risen that requires some of the same data to be imported into excel. Since I am already parsing down an xml structure in quartz, I want to incorporate this data into excel so i dont have to recreate the wheel again.

After all the data parsing I'm left with a named 2d array and am trying to figure out how to get that data back into an excel readable format. I have tried using Dust's amorim xml plugin but it loses the standard xml formatting and as such excel fails to import the data. Namely, it incorporate the keys into separate , . The perfect solution would be a hands off, quartz integrated plugin. Unfortunately I do not have the talent of knowledge to attempt to write the plugin myself.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Read a complex XML (actually not that complex if you have experience)

Hi I need some help XML the question, the commands for a Sprite XY (4) movements from an XML file to read. The coordinates are there together with the time / frame and interp_in = "Bezier" interp_out = "Bezier" Saved.

How do I steer points to the right, at the exact time and from the sound of movement and then go to the arrival of another command.

Thank you in advance Patrick

This patch demonstrates how to load a colloda file in quartz composer without using the mesh importer patch. You have more control over the types of component you can import. This is an example of getting texture coords but its certainly possible to get skinned meshes tangents, animations etc...

altering an xml file from iPhoto

My iPhoto library contains about 60000 photos and i like to find a nice way to present it. Here in the forum I read some threads about iPhoto, so I exported the metadata of some albums into an xml file (someone here posted a link to a plugin to do this). When loading the xml into quartz composer with an image loader it works fine (just a simple slideshow). I now want to control what images are shown, like only images in with a specific tag or date or in an specific album, and play them in the correct order. In qc i tried to use the conditional patch to solve this problem, but it didn´t work correctly. Are there any ways to do this with pure qc or do i have to learn javascript to filter/alter the xml first? I am grateful for any advice or ideas.




The NetworkTools plugin lets you send and receive data over a network, or between applications on a single computer.

HTTP Server patch

  • Receives HTTP requests. You can use commands encoded in the URL and query parameters to control your composition from another application or another computer.
  • Can receive bytes of arbitrary data in the POST body. (Note: Kineme DataTools is required to use this feature.)
  • Handles IPv6, just in case.

HTTP Query patch

  • Fetches the result of HTTP and HTTPS queries. You can download information from the web or send signals to another composition with an HTTP Server patch.
  • Supports GET and POST.
  • Supports synchronous (blocking) and asynchronous (non-blocking) queries.
  • Can send bytes of arbitrary data in the POST body. (Requires Kineme DataTools.)

XML Parser patch

  • Parses an XML string into a structure.
  • Supports synchronous (blocking) and asynchronous (non-blocking) parsing.

Unsupported on OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) and above

Please download the trial and make sure it meets your needs before purchasing. Due to bugs in Apple's Quartz Composer framework, we cannot guarantee that Kineme plugins will work properly on Mac OS 10.8 and above. Our focus has shifted to developing Vuo.
