KinemeCore (v0.3 I think)

I am having window weirdness with KinemeCore.

  1. Menu item for Editor Window "Non-Floating editor window" does not toggle to "Floating Editor window" no matter how many times I use it.

  2. No option for Transparent Editor Background (thought I'd seen a screen-shot of that) and did someone mention 'alpha' setting.

  3. With three Editor windows open, I can't get all them to non-floating. Selecting the "Non-Floating editor window" item toggles b/w one floating and the other two floating. They are sitting there on top of my system prefs window when system prefs is the active application & focused window from what I can tell. Same for other apps too. These are the most bothering issues.

  4. Cmd-Tilde key not cycling windows properly/at all.

  5. One File became unclose-able. Had to Force quit QC.

Well, let's start this great feature project. It's about creating a new option or application, to export directly your comps in a suitable, executable and fully "stand alone" application ! For many of us this could be simply: a dream !

1) This could be: - A new option for Quartz Composer itself, provided with a new version of KinemeCore Plugin. - A new option include in QuartzCrystal as an Export option (so it could be paid a few for this great feature). - A new Kineme's application made for such a specific function (with more option about Plugins integration, embeded medias, etc).

2) This could have: - Two preset option: - One simple full screen (you have no option available for your app, or they must be set in the comp itself with your own menu). - One adjustable application with a simple menu bar (Quit, play, stop, preferences...). Preferences could report input and output settings, editable numerical and boolean options as in your root patch...

  • The adjustable application could also includea a file browser in the preference settings, for loading what you want: Structures files, medias, 3D models (maybe several). This feature could be linked directly in every kind of published loaders in your comp (in the root patch). It's just a simple way to link a path to your composition. It could be great that the application keep your last choice in memory at startup (settings, paths...).

  • If the composition use loaders and savers patchs, it could be great to keep those files into the package of the application. This way, people could make their own menu and option. Maybe it could be done with "Kineme Document Info" to keep the right path...

  • The application should include your needed medias (automatically or manually) and integrate Official and non official Plugins. This app need to be compatible with all Mac and configuration (with restricted area like Tiger or Leopard only if this a difficult tricks). For Official or non official payable/not free Plugins (as Kineme 3D for exemple) the application could check in the user library if there is or not the legal Plugins. For the others it could be really really great to include them with the application or to generate an installation option for the application.

What do you think of that ?

QuartzCrystal - TIFF export

Just wondering, it would be useful to have some TIFF sequence export with Alpha in QuartzCrystal. BTW, amazing useful tool!
