Connect the iPhone using a USB to Lightning cable and it should show up in the Device List in Receive Live Video (vuo.video.receive2). I've just tested it to check and it works with my iPhone 7 Plus

Hi 2bitpunk, do you know if Shoot works on all iPhones? I have 6S and cannot get it working. I dont have a Pro version, just a basic, but it should still work (with the water mark) I think. I also tried to connect it directly to VDMX, it reads the input as Shoot USB, but only sends the black screen. Thank you for any help

Jaymie commented on Bodysoulspirit's Bug Report, “Webpage rendering problems

As you noted, problems playing videos and Lottie files in Make Image from Web Page are caused by basically the same underlying problem: limitations with the macOS web browser engine that the node uses to render web pages.

We recently tried a few more experiments in search of a relatively quick fix or workaround. But there really doesn't seem to be one. The node renders the web pages to an offscreen window and then turns the result into an image. There doesn't seem to be any way to trick the browser engine into playing Lottie animations when rendering to an offscreen window.

You asked about outputting an image vs. outputting directly to a window. If literally all you want to do is display the webpage, then you can use the Open URL in Browser node (and Lottie animations will work). In contrast, outputting to an image makes it possible to integrate the image with other Vuo graphics and to interact with the page within Vuo. Outputting directly to a window would not be noticeably faster, since macOS would still be internally rendering to an image that it provides to the window manager.

Coming back to the main question of the bug report — We'd have to investigate further to know just how difficult it would be to get around the limitations currently in the Make Image from Web Page node. Recently we thought of one potential solution, which would be to render the image to a virtual screen rather than an offscreen window, but we'd have to try it and see if it worked. If not, the only solution we know of would be to reimplement the node with a different web browser engine, as I mentioned on the other bug report.

Although the limitations with Make Image from Web Page are arguably a bug rather than a missing feature, the amount of effort required to fix the limitations is more like a feature request than a typical bug report. So if this is important to you, please create a feature request, linking to this bug report, so the community can prioritize it relative to other improvements.

Jaymie commented on Paul's Bug Report, “Crashing with modules composition

Thanks, Paul, for providing a simple setup to reproduce the problem. I confirmed that it's also crashing for me. It crashes consistently if I edit and then immediately quit. It doesn't seem to crash if I wait a few seconds between those steps. We'll add this to our queue of bugs to fix.

I am very grateful to Huseyin for his generosity in sharing his knowledge in this workshop. No doubt intending to develop future projects with Vuo since I am an orphan of Quartz Composer, very happy to be able to resume my studies with visual programming and interactivity. Thanks also to the developers of Vuo.

Thank to this workshop, I returned to visual programming. I started with QuartzComposer around 2008, and since its bitter end, I have been searching for a new language. I knew VUO was the best option for my profile, but I did not really succeed to learn it - until this Workshop. Besides of sharing transparently so much knowledge for such an amplitude of use cases and contexts, and showing/opening so much doors, I really love that Huseyin keeps open the communication in the community through Discord and direct contact. I certainly recommend it, already on the second day after the session I was creating again own patches. Thank you, Huseyin, for your open way, thank you, VUO team, to offer funding. Due to booth, I am finally back creating.
