How to cue actions in Vuo by sending OSC messages from QLab3 to Vuo, by community member @wmackwood.


It's just a quick little tutorial to show how you can send OSC messages from QLab into Vuo.

So, start out by adding an OSC cue. And you can see that it comes up with something like a standard QLab kind of cue, standard QLab OSC message.

We're going to change this. We're going to just flip this around. We're going to create a new OSC port. It's going to go up on the localhost, on our own machine here. And I'm going to assign it a port of 5000. And it's been done.

And then when I go back to here, you can see that I can say the destination is localhost 5000.

Nodes for OSC output

Could you please open "Nodes for OSC output" for voting? I think it's a core feature and am surprised it's not there yet. It's hard to make data connections from Vuo to other apps or computers right now.

It would also be interesting to know what you're planning next and great to get an update of the roadmap.

How to use TouchOSC for creative input in Vuo

How to use the TouchOSC iPhone app to control a Vuo composition


Hey I’m Travis with Team Vuo,

  1. In this tutorial, we’re going to learn how to use TouchOSC with Vuo. TouchOSC is a software platform that provides an array of different touch-control interfaces for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. Vuo can receive the different forms of controlled output from a TouchOSC display and utilize it for creative input in a composition. Today we’re going to learn how to build this simple composition that uses a TouchOSC display on my iPhone to control the location of a shape within a console window.
