Circus Family celebrates rainwater and Sinterklaas

Circus Family, an audiovisual design studio in Amsterdam, used Vuo to create two projects that enchanted their audiences. These are two of several projects where Circus Family used Vuo. In The Rain Project, raindrops created a display of images, light, and sound in a natural forest, and in the Hema Sintersizer, children created songs with a giant music-making machine during the Dutch children's celebration, Sinterklaas. To learn more, about I interviewed Circus Family's Cas Dekker.

VuoCompiler isn't compiling subcomps that have changed

mrray's picture


Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • Mac OS 10.11

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●●○○ — It's annoying but I can work around it.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

i'm attaching a .zip which contains source code, a procedure, and all the attendant files for a reproducible test case. more generally:

  1. create a .vuo composition, save it to the node library
  2. create another composition that instantiates and uses the first comp you made as a subcomposition
  3. launch an application that uses a VuoCompiler to compile and link an executable. run the executable, and observe the output.
  4. modify the subcomposition in a manner that would be visible
  5. without quitting, compile/link the executable again. run the executable, and observe the output- i would expect the changes that were made to the subcomposition to be visible, but they are not: the compiled output reflects the state of the composition when it was compiled for the first time since the app was launched.

Have you found a workaround?: 

yes, relaunching the application- which suggests that other workarounds of this type (compiling the .vuo comps in another process) would also probably be effective.

Thanks for reporting this problem, @Azy. We tested on a couple different computers and didn't see the problem, so it looks like it's specific to the GPU. What GPU do you have?

Yeah, your idea that maybe your barcode is being identified as the wrong kind of barcode sounds plausible. And adding the option to select the type of barcode (or to have it auto-detect, as it does now) sounds like a good fix, as well as a possible performance speedup.

@jstrecker commented on @lechbialek's Feature Request, “Play MIDI files (

Thanks for the suggestion, @lechbialek. Opened for voting.

We've decided to make it a Pro feature based on our guidelines, How do you determine which features are only in Vuo Pro?, as we see it being most useful in conjunction with a MIDI sequencer.

Inconsistent video input size


Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • Mac OS 10.10

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●●●○ — It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. connect a Magewell USB capture HDMI gen 2 with a HDMI camera plugged into
  2. open the attached patch
  3. check "received frame" output pin: Size says 1980 x 1200
  4. Open Quicktime player
  5. Start new movie recording
  6. check again "received frame" output pin: Size says 1980 x 1080

Other notes: 

I0d expect it to be 1920 x 1080 at start
