    Thanks a lot for linking to my QC video course (http://scotthurff.com/qc)!

    Here are some other pluses for QC:

    • Free
    • TONS of free patches of every variety, going back years, because it's...
    • Used by everyone from UI designers to screensaver creators to sound professionals. They'll connect up QC with Pro Tools and other sound equipment to coordinate stuff on screen.
    • Origami 1.3 solves a lot of common usability problems
    • Avocado by IDEO also adds some pretty impressive stuff
    • Compositions can be exported to Quicktime

    Also note that Xcode isn't required; QC is free with the Graphics Tools: https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action
