This is a little sample Quartz Composer composition which loads a bunch of images from a directory, and creates a 3D carousel from it (cos we all love carousels, dont we).

The main purpose of this was to demonstrate how to load multiple images (using the Image Downloader) from within an Iterator patch. You'd think it was quite straightforward, just send a different string (either generated within the iterator or loaded from XML etc.) to the Image Downloader, but alas QC has other plans. It always loads the same image whatever string you send it!

So there is a hack workaround using a recursive JavaScript patch which I read about somewhere in the cloud and cannot find right now. Its quite an important issue I think as there are loads of questions regarding this on forums but with no answers...
