Create Amazing Real-Time Motion Graphics with Quartz Composer!
Apple's Quartz Composer makes it amazingly easy to create real-time graphics of all kinds: for screensavers, animations, kiosk art, film effects, Dashboard Widgets, graphically-rich apps, and more. But few content creators use QC, because they've had practically no useful help–until now. In this book/DVD bundle, two renowned VJs who've pushed this tool to the limit show you how to do it, too!
You needn't be a technical expert: Graham Robinson and Surya Buchwald introduce each concept through a hands-on project, with videos demonstrating every step. They start extremely simple, offering beautiful visual feedback and encouraging you to freely explore. The video and text work together to help you build mastery fast, as you create everything from data-driven effects to compelling live performance visuals!

- Grabbing live inputs from music or cameras for unique interaction and improvisation
- Outputting video files for everything from smartphone screens to HD video edits
