Currently vuos backend (excluding vuo editor app) is published as a timed release on GitHub.
In the light of submissions being possible by other talented individuals (myself not included) it would be great to open up the engine development and allow contributions to be easily made over GitHub.
I do not believe this will have a negative effect on vuo sales because:
- no editor
- still have to build
- newest revision would by definition be unstable so not ready for prime time use
- no access to pro nodes unless paying
So I can only see positives for team vuo to allow realtime interactive development.
The only downside I could imagine is if someone coded a front end that rivaled vuo-editor.app. But that could already happen now theoretically with the timed release? So maybe have more un-published node sets: paid nodes & paid pro nodes?
