Support creating custom themes for UI widgets (buttons, sliders) using Layers

Allow the composition author to provide a custom Layer (or a group of Layers) for each component of each UI widget, to completely customize the visual appearance of UI widgets.

Proposed new nodes:

  • Make Action Button Theme (Layers) with the following Layer inputs:
    • Background
    • Background: Hovered
    • Background: Pressed
  • Make Toggle Button Theme (Layers) with the following Layer inputs:
    • Checkmark
    • Checkmark: Hovered
    • Checkmark: Pressed
    • Checkbox
    • Checkbox: Hovered
    • Checkbox: Pressed
    • Checkbox: Toggled
    • Checkbox: Toggled and Hovered
  • Make Slider Theme (Layers) with the following Layer inputs:
    • Handle
    • Handle: Hovered
    • Handle: Pressed
    • Active Track
    • Active Track: Hovered
    • Inactive Track
    • Inactive Track: Hovered

You could then create your own Layers (using Vuo's built-in Layer nodes, or using custom images) to feed in to these nodes, and the UI widgets would display the appropriate Layer(s) at the appropriate times.

Creating FFGL plugins in Vuo

Creating FFGL plugins in Vuo

Turning a composition into an FFGL (FreeFrame 1.6+) plugin for VJ apps such as Resolume, Magic Music Visuals, VDMX, and Isadora 3

Transcript: 

Hi, this is Jaymie from the Vuo team. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create an FFGL plugin from a Vuo composition and use it in Resolume Avenue.

FFGL plugins you create in Vuo will run in 64-bit macOS apps that support FFGL, also known as FreeFrame 1.5 — including the ones listed here.

There are two kinds of FFGL plugins you can create in Vuo. Sources generate content for a clip. Effects change how a clip looks.

First we'll go through how to create an effect. Go to File > New Composition from Template > Image Filter.

Creating Final Cut Pro X plugins in Vuo

Creating Final Cut Pro X plugins in Vuo

Turning a composition into an FxPlug plugin for Apple Motion and Final Cut Pro X

Transcript: 

Hi, this is Jaymie from the Vuo team. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create a Final Cut Pro plugin from a Vuo composition.

Plugins for Final Cut Pro and Motion are called FxPlug. There are three kinds of FxPlug plugins you can create in Vuo: video effects, transitions, and generators.

Video effects appear in the Effects Browser. They alter how a clip looks.

Transitions appear in the Transitions Browser. They transition from one clip to another.

Generators appear in the Titles and Generators sidebar. They generate clips.

Layer to 3D Object & 3D Object to Layer

Hey guys ;)

Wanted to know if there is a reason why something like Karl Henkel both his "3D Object to Layer" and "Layer to 3D Object" nodes are not included in the stock nodes ?
Using it quite often to bypass some limitations (Use Copy 3D Object with Material with layers), having scene based compositions not having to select different Z-axis to blend nicely etc.

Once "Allow custom node paths" will be implemented it won't be really a problem anymore, but until then, it's sometimes complicated to share compositions with custom nodes.

Thanks ;)
