Quartz2D animation : QuartzComposer / Python

Posted: September 3, 2008 in Apple, IT/Dev

The site idrankthekoolaid provides an article that shows how to easily create an OSX screensaver using QuartzComposer only. The animation definition is made by graphically assembling modules, transformers and generators (LFO, etc.) to modify the shapes and paths (see also a tutorial on ADC site).
We can also look at an ArsTechnica article about using Quartz2D from Python, and theNodeBox application, that allows to create complex Quartz2D animations using Python language.

Finally we can find Pycairo, a binding to use the graphical Cairo framework (multi-plateform, is based on Quartz on the OSX version) from Python.
