Released on 2015.01.07

Vuo 1.0.1 fixes several bugs, such as:

  • Incorrect lighting on some 3D models imported by the Fetch Scene node after going through a 3D object filter.
  • Hidden cables' antennas on input ports weren't tinted the same as the connected output port's node.
  • The Receive Mouse Moves and Receive Mouse Deltas nodes didn't fire events while dragging.
  • The Blur Image node expanded the image's bounds slightly even when the Expand Bounds port was set to false.
  • Header text inside of newly created composition files was missing.
  • The error message wasn't clear when opening a composition that was created in Vuo 0.9 or earlier. (Thanks to @architek1 for asking about this problem!)

…and adds a minor feature:

  • Expanded Shade with Vertex Normal to visualize more types of attributes.

Changes

Here's what we've done in the last 4 weeks:

Built-in Nodes, Types, and Input Editors

  • Added an Attribute port to the Shade with Vertex Normal node, enabling it to visualize positions, normals, tangents, bitangents, and texture coordinates. (Thanks to @GeorgeToledo for suggesting this!)
  • Fixed a bug where some nodes that deform 3D objects would output an object with incorrect lighting on some 3D models imported by the Fetch Scene node.
  • Fixed an incorrect calculation in the Shade with Vertex Normal node.
  • Fixed a bug where the Receive Mouse Moves and Receive Mouse Deltas nodes would not fire events while a mouse button was pressed.
  • Fixed a bug where the Blur Image node would expand the image's bounds slightly even when the Expand Bounds port was set to false.

Vuo Editor

  • Fixed the missing copyright/description header text inside of newly created composition (.vuo) files.
  • Made sure that hidden cables' antennas on input ports are tinted the same as the connected output port's node.
  • Made sure that drawers are tinted the same as the node they're attached to.
  • Fixed a bug where the Welcome dialog remained open after creating a composition with "New Composition with Protocol".
  • Tweaked the coloring of ports and constant flags to make them more legible.
  • Avoided confusion when opening example compositions for pro nodes with a non-pro license by disabling the menu items and adding a "pro" icon.
  • Clarified the error message that appears when opening a composition that was created in Vuo 0.9 or earlier to make it more apparent how to resolve the problem. (Thanks to @architek1 for asking about this problem!)

Documentation

  • Vuo Manual
    • Combined the sections on built-in nodes and 3rd-party nodes into a single section on nodes, and added information about pro nodes.
    • Updated the section on exporting apps to explain that most resource files are copied into the exported app automatically.
    • Updated the Quick Start section to mention the Vuo Editor activation process and the Welcome window. (Thanks to @goldstek for bringing this to our attention!)

SDK

  • Updated the example Qt projects for creating node classes and port types:
    • Fixed some problems with the ExampleLanguage example, so that its port type can be used with generic node classes and list ports.
    • Removed the MyPairOfReals example, which has been superseded by ExampleLanguage.
    • Renamed the node classes to follow naming conventions.
  • Renamed the "api" example folder to "runner".
