    Hey guys,
    I need to make a music visualizer in quartz composer.
    The only twist is that I need the bars that are created from the input to show up inside of a predetermined shape or object.

    For instance, say that I have a circle. When the bars are drawn, the only ones i want to see are the ones that intersect with the shape of the object. Please see the attached photo.

    Any help would be great.

    Basically I want to mask the bars.

    Simpler than you think

    Just bring in an PNG with an alpha channel of your image and lay it over as a "Sprite" / "Billboard".

    See attached .qtz and accompanying .png.
