10.5: View Quartz composer files in Cover Flow Desktop
I had a look through the system library in the Finder's Cover Flow mode and discovered that quite a lot of icons still are in the old 128px size ... but what surprised me was the fact that Quartz Composer files automatically started to play. To have a look at these, just navigate to the main screen saver folder (/System » Library » Screen Savers). There you will have Arabesque, RSS Visualizer, Shell, Spectrum and Word of the Day playing directly in Cover Flow mode. Very nice if you ask me!

[robg adds: You can also, as you might expect, use Quick Look on a Quartz Composer file and watch the animation in a larger window.]

About everything that opens in QuickTime Player also runs in QuickLook, so this is not that surprising, is it?

QuickTime movies don't auto-play in CoverFlow and the Column view preview.

This also works in the preview in Column view.
