Do you want to make your own plugins. If this is what you want you should look at Noise Industries FX website. I think they had few video tutorials how to make your own plugins. Write to them they will be able to send you a link as to where is this tutorial. Good Luck.

HI Back,

Yeas it does. From Noise Industries Application in your application menu you should be able to see how they make plugins, you can also duplicate plugins and play around with it (make your own). Send an email to noise industries and explain what you want to do. They are nice guys they will point you in the wright direction.

I wrote to them. I know they nice - they always respond :] They said that fxfactory hasn't that options what i need yet and i have to do it other way [they wrote that they will think about my solutions in future version of fxfactory].
So now here's my question. How can i build plugin for Motion, which has separate window with options [not in Inspector] and how can i get f.e. light position in Motion?
I'm waiting for answers ;]

HI there,

have a look at this. I think you need something like this. . I also believe you need to learn how to use Quartz Composer. See the same site for more info.I think there is a book.

i hope this helps.

If you'd like to develop for OS X, a good place to start is developer.apple.com. Apple is pretty good about documenting their technologies. I believe the page you'll want to take a look at is here:

http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/documentation/AppleApplications/Conc...

Good Luck! Let us all know if you release something :)

Haha ok :]
I've done some stuff since last post. I have my own window in Apple Motion, couple of buttons.
I have a question now. Can anybody tell me how can i track the light position in Apple Motion? I mean that: you add the light object in apple motion and in the created window - position of light is written. When you move the light, position of light is written in real time.
Can anybody help me?
Thx! :]

I don't understand your question. What are you trying to achieve?

I want to create in code some kind of connection between apple motion light object and plug-in I write in fxplug. Like i wrote before - it should reads light position while I move the light in apple motion. I know light position is in Inspector in apple motion, but it's necessary to me, that my plug-in does that, 'cause I want to use that position.
Anybody can help? :)
