CurlyCode is a 3D, realtime drawing application built using Quartz Composer, with several effects (some audio reactive), shaders, and postFX-s. Created by Berlin based David Szauder as a media art project and a non commercial software, CC is the realization of David’s way of thinking and visualizing. Primarily designed to be used in BlackandWhite or greyscale only, CC is built to be operated with an external tablet, keyboard or an iPhone interface (no details av).
David writes about inspiration:
When i started my deeper adventures in the world of generated forms and structures, one of my idea, lets say desire was to build an application up, with the ability of freehand drawing in a 3 dimensional space, to animate those drawings, using as a performance platform or just to render some nice looking stills out.
curly code is currently alpha 1.2 and most recent update included SuperSpline instance, as one of the drawing modes. Unfortunately there is no download link on the site which make me assume this is a private alpha only. If you would like to try the QC app, you should get in touch with David directly via his site.
