Install Quartz Composer Custom Patches

If you want to use a layer that was shipped with BoinxTV as base for a new layer you will need to install the Lua Patch before you open the composition for the first time. The Twitter layer has additional dependencies: JSON Patch and OAuth Patch

  • Download the patch and unzip it.
  • Move the .plugin file to ~/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Plug-Ins/ or to /Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Plug-Ins/ to make the patch available for all users on the computer. Starting with 10.7 this ~/Library folder is hidden. Use the Finder, select GoGo to Folder … (⇧⌘G) and type in ~/Library to go to the folder. Go to Folder…Go to Library
  • To see if everything is correctly installed you should find the new patch in patch library when you open Quartz Composer. LUA script patch in Quartz Composer Library

After the installation you can open the composition and modify it.
