Installation Instructions

Place the plugin file in
/Users/[you]/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Patches/
(Create the folder if it doesn't already exist.)

Provides a structure full of touch sensor data from an internal trackpad or Magic Mouse — position, velocity, angle, and size of up to eleven simultaneous points.

  • To use the internal trackpad, at least the following hardware version is required: MacBookPro4,1 or MacBookAir1,1.
  • Based loosely on the reverse-engineering work of Steike.
  • Includes sample compositions by George Toledo.
