Goodbye Quartz Composer « Hybrid Visuals. Dear Quartz Composer, Where do I begin?

Goodbye Quartz Composer « Hybrid Visuals

You’re amazing. You’re more than amazing. We had such great times together. You showed me so much, and we went places we never knew existed. But something has been missing lately. I know we haven’t kept in touch. It’s not you. Of course, we’ve had our fights when you insisted to do things your way and I tried to push you with too many skanky plugins. It’s cliche, but I hope we will still be friends. It’s been an amazing journey and thank you for everything that you’ve given to me. With love, Joris PS Please come by to pick up your stuff.
