Hi

I'd love it if someone can confirm if I have all this correct. I'm interested in buying Vuo but realistically only for the purpose of creating FFGL to use in Resolume so if that doesn't work smoothly it will be a real drag.

So first I need to purchase Vuo1.2.8 - after that I have acess to Vuo2.0. Correct?

Vuo2.0 exports to FFGL that functions in Resolume 6 and 7. Correct?

Are there good indications that Resolume will continue to support FFGL plugs produced by Vuo in future versions (of Resolume)?

thanks, this seems like a promising development.

With a Vuo Pro 1.2 license, you can access the Vuo Pro 2.0 beta, which includes support for exporting macOS FFGL 1.6+ plugins. Vuo Pro 2.0 is a free upgrade for Vuo Pro 1.2 license holders. (The Vuo standard (non-Pro) license does not include support for exporting FFGL plugins; a Vuo Pro license is required.)

FFGL plugins exported by Vuo Pro 2.0 work in macOS Resolume Arena and Avenue version 6 and later. We're not aware of any unresolved compatibility issues so far (if you do run into problems, please let us know, and we'll try to fix them).

We don't know Resolume's future plans for changes to their FFGL support, but we are continuing to monitor changes they make. We are communicating with them when necessary, and plan to adapt Vuo as needed.

So I've been using Vuo to

So I've been using Vuo to make FFGL plugs for Resolume and I'm very pleased.

I notice however that the exported plugs are quite large. Typically ~10mb. The native Resolume plugs are tiny ~50kb. Is that to be expected? Why so much larger?

Each plugin includes Vuo's

Each plugin includes Vuo's runtime libraries and dependencies, so the plugin can run independently without having Vuo installed. We've taken a look at how to reduce the size, and we're planning some modest reductions for Vuo 2.0. Larger reductions should be possible, but will require more work. If it's a priority for you, please create a feature request.
