Last week I was asked to put together a proposal for an interactive visual display for the launch of a new mobile phone product. The conversation started with video and animation concepts, progressed into interactive responsiveness and eventually led to discussions on including social tech in conjunction with all of the above. And why the hell not?
So I found a quick solution via Quartz Composer (of course) using this nifty little patch. Although this patch is designed for another live visual platform, it's QC...so it goes where I want it to. The result - I have realtime Twitter (@CBCNews) feed updating while I'm able to manipulate video and sound. Tough living.
