oz.LeapMotion 2.012a

Leap Motion 2.0 alpha

oz.LeapMotion is a plug-in bundle for the graphic development environment Quartz Composer.

It is currently in alpha version. Basically it looks like everything’s working well, but I didn’t « crash tested » every patch (52 patches).

This alpha version is provided with only very basic examples and without any description for the patches.

It is released as DonationWare (I know it’s hard, but sometimes only few $€£ are a good boost. If you can’t / don’t want, that’s OK. This plugin is free ! :) )

Thanks to Marcos Prack for the first donation.

snd_xpriment

snd_xpriment

snd_xpriment is a series of experiments to generate sound from video.

Mapping values to others is the basis of the principle of analogy. Quantum theory proves that light is both a particle and a wave, depending on the observer position / choice. If light is a wave, then it can be trnasformed in sound… This series, that will help working on a future performance called Emergence, is aimed to find a light to sound mapping that can make sense with the environment.

_snd_xpriment #03 is based on the luminosity, while the video at the bottom of the page (_snd_xpriment #01) is based on the image histogram. Both are recorded live in Quartz Composer, with my OpenCV and AudioGraph plugins.

oz.box2D

Box2D_01

oz.Box2D is a plug-in bundle for the graphic development environment Quartz Composer.

It is based on the 2D physics library Box2D and configure some of its functions to be usable through node-based programming.

It makes complex shapes easy to include in physics simulation and contains helper patches to provide the user with some custom functions not basically included in Box2D.

oz.strings

strings

oz.Strings is a plug-in bundle for the graphic development environment Quartz Composer.

It provides patches that allow making image with aligned paragraphs, images structure with string, image with keyboard input, line structure with strings and triangulate these output line structures to get a triangle structure that can be rendered by OpenGL, ie. through Kineme GL Tools patches.

It has been released for the first time in March 2014 under the name h[Oz] Strings. Please uninstall this first release before installing this one, because I changed the name of all my plug-ins to be more simple at display with oz prefix.

oz.geometry

geom

oz.Geometry is a plug-in bundle for the graphic development environment Quartz Composer.

It is the result of a personal lack of solutions to quickly transform « drawings » in Quartz Composer, make them grow, follow a path, search for nearest points, etc.

Be aware that these patches are acting on CPU built arrays so they can be chained together, not on GPU: any vertices transformation is far more heavy for performance.
