Damnit.

This was a cool piece of surrealist art built as a Quartz Composition that I was using as one of my collection of screensavers. Now this and all the other QCs I was using for that no longer work because Apple's depreciating Quartz Compositions.

Foo.

@anthracite
You know, quartz compositions were like the coolest shit when I got thrown into the OS X ecosystem. Legit, I think some of the reason I fell in love with computers was because of how interesting and simple the built in tools for playing with that API were. It's sad to see it deprecated.

@Irick

Looks like they stopped updating it ages ago, too...

Little pieces of motion graphics, built in a now-gone tool called Quartz Composer. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quartz_C

Nah, I never run beta OSs. I just recently upgraded to 10.14.6 and I think that's where it happened.
