Introducing Vuo 0.5.5 — Generic types, receive OSC, and render text!

Posted by

We've just released Vuo 0.5.5! In this release we've made it easier to use Vuo by introducing generic types for nodes. Now you can drag a single node onto the canvas (such as the Select Input node) for all types of data. Connect the node to your composition by a cable, or right click to view your options, and the node becomes specific for that type of data. This change makes the node library is more compact, making it easier to find and use nodes. Vuo will automatically update your compositions to use the new generic nodes.

Introducing Vuo 0.5.4 — Kinect, layers, editor improvements, and more movie and 3D scene nodes

Posted by

In this release we've added dozens of nodes to expand what you can do with Vuo. They include supporting Kinect depth + RGB input (sooner than we planned!), a new layer node set (great for compositing 2D images), advanced movie features (get frame at time, variable playback rates, mirror looping), scenegraph improvements (drawing points and lines, improved performance), and several nodes that make interaction easier (Toggle, Became True, Is Within Range, Measure Time) and more. Packaged with these developments are new, interesting sample compositions, such as FlipPhoto.vuo, BounceLineStrip.vuo, and SimulateFilmProjector.vuo. There are also significant improvements to the editor, including the ability to manually fire a trigger port, and the ability to select which type converter to insert when connecting a cable. It's amazing that so much has come together in the last few weeks.
