CoGe, the semi-modular, Quartz Composer-powered, free visualist tool for Mac has gotten a significant new beta build. Added in this version:
- MSAA anti-aliasing for rendering (very nice).
- OpenSoundControl support (OSC is natively supported in QC, but now you can use it with CoGe).
- OSC bpm sync! (actually, we need to have a standard for how to implement this across a variety of music and visual tools with OSC – thoughts?)
- Improved speed.
There are also improvements to UI color customization, experimental movie recording, custom control modules, and, perhaps more important than any shiny new feature, enhanced stability and performance. There’s a MIDI fix due today, so stay glued to the site there.
We followed the first-step workflow tutorial when I looked at CoGe in the spring; here in this post are additional tutorials to try out once you’ve worked through that, starting with beginner tutorial 2 at top, and continuing with goodies like stop motion…
