Quartz Composer performance in Modul8

Screen shot 2009-10-28 at 18.55.38I’ve been doing some testing and it’s my impression that you get a much better performance in Modul8 if you convert your .qtz files to .mov before importing them to Modul8. This can be done by following the steps described in this article: Working with Quartz Compositions in Modul8

I don’t know the reason for this so I don’t know if it’s a general problem or something that is limited to my OS/hardware combination. I’m running Snow Leopard on a 2.4 GHz duo core Macbook Pro.

So if you’re curious here are the files that I’ve tested with. I get approx. 14 fps with the .qtz but 57 fps with the .mov in Modul8. In Quartz Composer editor I also get around 57 fps.
