Our current focus

In 2012, we started building a new visual programming environment
that doesn’t rely on Apple's Quartz Composer (which Apple no longer supports).
We’ve created Vuo, and people are using it to create amazing shows and installations.
You can download the free Community Edition.

Release: WiiMote Control, v20080903

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20080903
Release Notes

This update to the WiiMote patch adds the ability to screen connections based on address.

There's an input to specify an address to accept connections from (any devices is accepted if blank), and an output to display the currently-connected device's address (handy for filling in the input ;)

Release: Apple Remote, v0.2

Release Type: Production
Version: 0.2
Release Notes

This is an update of our Apple Remote patch for Leopard.

Apple Remote PatchThis patch indicates when the user holds a button, unlike the built-in Apple Remote patch.

Like the Tiger version, it's based on the Martin Kahr's Remote Control Wrapper.

Development for the Leopard version of the Apple Remote Patch was commissioned by dimitre.

Release: CompositionTool, v20080815

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20080815
Release Notes

Second beta of CompositionTool. Added Patch size, to see which patches are contributing to the overall size of the composition. Also reworked the UI a bit, to make it somewhat prettier.

Patch Size includes subpatches, so macros will report their size, plus the size of subpatches. Sorry if this is confusing -- working on a way to clear this up.

And it's still not sortable by columns. sorry twice.

[Edit: Xcode was misconfigured, and produced an intel-only app for the 20080815 release -- 20080817 is a real universal binary, but is otherwise identical]

electro-music 2008

August 14-16, 2008, we will be attending electro-music 2008 in Kingsport, Tennessee.

AudioVideo Patch, v0.2

This update to the AudioVideo Patch addresses a race condition that some machines experience. It also contains various speed improvements.
