INSTALLING QUARTZ COMPOSER
Quartz Composer (QC) is a Mac only application. it is provided by Apple for developers of software for the Mac. http://developer.apple.com/graphicsimaging/quartzcomposer/
Mac OS prior to 10.7 QC is enclosed with Apple's XCode software download. It is free to download when you register as an Apple Developer.
If using Snow Leopard (10.6) you need the full 3.2.6 (or higher version) of the complete Xcode package. http://developer.apple.com/xcode/ NB The download is 4 gigs, so allow plenty of download time.
If Lion (10.7) or above, you can download the much smaller bundle: Graphics Tools for Xcode which has QC as part of a bundle of useful graphics softwares. The quickest way to find it at the link provided is to type the name into the search window to filter through the massive list! You will need to register as an apple developer (don't worry there is no exam! You just have to give them your name and an email address!)

OTHER USEFUL SOFTWARES & PLUGINS
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform. Environment sensors; touch, temp, light, motor control etcSoftware sketch uploads, using the Arduino software, allows you to interface your computer with Arduino boards. If you use JunXion software, this is a relatively easy way to have Isadora listen to an Arduino board (but is not currently bi-directional) without knowing Java programming yourself, since JunXion provides ready-made Arduino sketches for you. http://www.arduino.cc/. http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

VIDEO TRACKING & KINECT
NEW** Ni_Syphon.app by Jonathan Reus at STEIM This is the latest and easiest method that I am currently aware of, for Mac users to get the depth mapped image from a kinect camera into Isadora. it is comprised of a simple Custom App to read the Kinect depth mapped image into a syphon stream. (NB Quartz Composer does not have to be installed for this method to work.) It does work with both the 1414 and the newer 1473 Kinect camera models. Instructions and download at this link on my blog: http://www.jamiegriffiths.com/new-kinect-into-syphon/ NB You do need to also install the syphon plugin. Follow the link for step-by-step instructions.

EXAMPLE USER ACTORS FROM JAMIE
Create a new folder inside the Isadora folder in your Applications directory and call it Global User Actors.
Open Isadora and start a new patch. Go to Menu Bar>Actors>Place User Actor
When the browser opens, select the user actor that you want to place. This will place an instance of the user actor into your Isadora build window. Click on the new user actor to make sure it highlighted (should be blue color when selected).
Go to Menu Bar>Actors>User Actor to Global Toolbox. Once you have done that you will always find this actor available to you inside the 'User' toolbox of Isadora.
SLIDESHOWS & PATCH EXAMPLES
Matrix Serial Patch (for lighting control with the Enttec via Serial Data, and the Lanbox using the Lanbox Channels actor)
