Is this not the coolest tool ever? Sure it's limited to little more than effects and screen savers, but it's so much fun to play with! It took me like ten minutes to make an X-files screen saver. Now that's just cool.

Yeah, it's real fun to just play around with Smile
I did a very basic Astroids clone with some weird effects Smile

Can it be controlled by cocoa code? Like, can you make a fully-featured game that uses this technology?

Yes. See /System/Library/Frameworks/Quartz.framework/Frameworks/QuartzComposer.framework/Headers/QCRenderer.h and QCView.h.

This program actually makes me happy I took a circuit design class last semester.

Thanks, OSC, aarku, I'll look forward to playing with it. The interface is so neat, it almost doesn't matter what it's for!
