I’m trying to fake a video chat using keynote.app & live video input quicktimes made in QC
I have several successful QTs made allowing different inputs (built in iSight, a USB capture thingy, Canopus, Matrox MXO, & etc) and have embedded them into Keynote with great results….(yes, I have safe video input installed)
NOW, I’d like to uglify the video representing the ‘distant’ end of the video chat, and was hoping your glitch plugin would do the trick
in QC, the video passes thru just fine and I see what I wanna see in the viewer, but when I export a QT with your plugin, all I get is a black window
What button did I forget to press?December 29, 2011 at 10:19 pm #4360vadeKeymaster
Sadly this is because QT wrapping of Quartz Compositions forces “safe mode”, which means 3rd party Plugins do not execute (or even load). You’ve done nothing wrong 🙂
You have to run some hacks to make them work in hosts that load Safe Mode only. You can search “Quartz Composer Safe Mode”. Kineme has some older ones, namely “QC Rehab”, but you have to find the right revision of the plugin. Good luck.December 31, 2011 at 12:19 am #4361jersmiParticipant
Perhaps you could glitch your video with built-in patches, namely the Render In Image without a Clear patch. If you animate the RII pixel dimensions, x/y, width, color, etc., you can do some damage. 🙂January 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm #4362BabhamParticipant
I envy you… You must have been working on a solution for this quite a while! I have only got to the point of having the isight to work in keynote. So please tell me whats the secret to get more sources to work? Im on a blackmagic intensity pro and cannot get it to show in quartz.
All the best. Babham
By the way. Its no use upgrading to Lion huh? Video safe mode is not working in there right?January 15, 2012 at 7:03 pm #4363vadeKeymaster
Launch Quartz Composer Editor as a 32 bit app (Select in Finder, get info, select Launch 32 Bit) – then the Black Magic Intensity should be an available input. Blame Apple / Quicktime.January 16, 2012 at 12:54 pm #4364BabhamParticipant
Thanx for the quick answer Vade! So what do i need to install then, only the safe video input from the kinemecore? Then start Quartz in 32 bit app and there i see the Black Magic intensity… or?January 25, 2012 at 7:40 pm #5290waterhorse36Guest
We did this effect for a tv show that I have been working on.
Basically, you take the remote feed into a off-set computer (via canopus). Pipe it though Quartz with the Glitch plugin running. Go full frame on the viewer. That feed goes out the minDisplayport to VGA adapter. VGA goes to a scan converter to transform it to composite.
Pipe the composite to hero computer via another canopus (in our case, hidden under the desk). The hero computer is running keynote with two Quartz objects, one doing live video from the webcam, the other doing live video from the canopus.
For a bit of flavor, we hooked up a midi controller and changed the distortion amounts on the fly. Nice, nice…
