published Quartz Composer parameters, in layer v. as effect
i have a simple "video sampler" patch for quartz composer that i'd like to use in Millumin.
this QC patch allows making video loop recordings of any input source; i'm using it with live cameras.
i need multiple instances of this patch because i'd like to have several layers of looped videos.
i'm finding that when i drag the QC patch into a layer, like in this picture,
i see the "published parameters" from my QC patch under "Media/Quartz" like this picture
on the other hand, when i use the QC patch as an effect, applied to a camera source in a layer like in this picture,
i see the "published parameters" from my QC patch under "effect" like this
as you can see, "boolean" params (like "record") appear as check boxes in the top version, and as sliders in the bottom one.
selection params (like the "loop_mode") appear as drop down menus in the top version, and again as sliders in the bottom one.
the check box and drop down is much better for live use;
however, if i drop a QC patch in a layer, then i must put the video capture object IN the QC patch;
in this case, i'm not able to have multiple instances of the QC because it crashes Millumin
So, my question is, how can i get more control over how my published params for a QC patch appear in Millumin, when instantiated as a effect?
