For those not in the know, Clips are a really handy way of keeping a library of commonly-used macros, ready for instantly adding to your composition. Unlike Virtual Patches though, Clips appear as ordinary macros when added to your composition, so you can see what’s inside them. The other difference is that once added, they lose all links with the original Clip, so if you update the Clip, it’s not automatically updated in all the compositions that use it.
I’ve found myself using Clips more and more lately, and have built up a library of macros I commonly use. I don’t know how useful they’ll be to anyone else, but someone out there might find a use for some of them, so I thought I’d put them out there, just in case.
To use them, copy the contents of the zip file to
~/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/Quartz Composer/Clips
(where /~ is your Home Folder). You should then be able to see them in the patch browser, with descriptions.
‘tb_Clips_Dec08.zip’ in Box.net widget.
