@jstrecker commented on @Kewl's Discussion, “Make Noise Image: how many bits?

It's 8bpc.

One reason that you might see banding is if your monitor supports fewer colors. If that's the problem, adding some noise (as in the attached composition) should help.

To check if you really are getting an 8bpc image, you can open it in an image editing application and check the number of unique colors. For example, in Photoshop, go to Image > Mode > Indexed Color. The maximum unique colors you could see with 8bpc is 256. If you see slightly fewer than that (like 246), it's fine. If you see a lot fewer, there's a problem.

@jstrecker commented on @Bodysoulspirit's Feature Request, “`Change Items in List` node

Sure, a Change Items in List node — like the existing Change Item in List, but inputting multiple Positions and multiple New Items — sounds good. Opened for voting.

@Bodysoulspirit or @Xavier dev, did you have a specific example in mind where the Change Item Ranges in List node would be useful? Unless you do, we plan to skip this node and just add the Change Items in List node. Since a Change Item Ranges in List node would have several input ports that you'd have to coordinate to make sure the data is entered consistently in all of them (correct number of list items, etc.), we're thinking the complexity of the ports would outweigh the convenience of being able to use ranges.

@jstrecker commented on @marioepsley's Feature Request, “`Open URL in Browser` node

There is not currently a way to do that, but an Open URL in Browser node would be fairly easy to add. Opened for voting.

We're continuing to make progress on working around this GPU driver bug. We had suspected that certain changes to the graphics system (eliminating the use of OpenGL shared contexts) would fix the crashes/hangs, and we confirmed that they do.

We've started using computers with AMD GPUs more frequently, and have also observed similar system-wide hangs when using Final Cut Pro X on those computers (without any Vuo compositions running). And other people have reported issues using Photoshop's GPU acceleration with AMD GPUs. So this seems to be a fairly widespread AMD driver issue :^/

@jstrecker commented on @Kewl's Feature Request, “Merge WXYZ Lists

Because it would be evil!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nah, just because we weren't sure that anyone would need it. Since it'll be super quick to add, I'll go ahead and mark it "chosen to be implemented".
