Limitless possibilities.

Vuo is incredibly flexible. Besides working with domes, you can do projection mapping, view 360° video, convert video between different projections, and more.

Vuo community member Paul Bourke used Vuo for an outdoor dome installation in Mandurah, Australia. “Unlike a normal dome the audience is on the outside of the dome and the interior contains the projection equipment,” he explained. Using Vuo, Paul blended the output of two projectors with spherical mirrors, creating a seamless image around the dome.

Putting the power in your hands.

Vuo is easy to learn. Whether you prefer to start by reading the user manual, watching video tutorials, or trying some of our over 250 examples, you can be building your first composition in a few minutes.

Behind the simple interface is a powerful engine. As a visual programming environment, Vuo gives you the control, flexibility, and performance of custom programming, without having to write a line of code.

Vuo isn’t just software. It’s a growing community of people around the world who are creating amazing things. Vuo community members are sharing their creations and their knowledge. As a community member, you can even help decide the direction of Vuo by suggesting and voting on new features.

Take it for a spin.

For serious dome users, we recommend our professional tier, Vuo Pro. It includes nodes specially designed for domes, a dark user interface for working in low light, and other advanced features. Pro features aren't enabled in our free trial, but you can try our demos of projection warping, directional fisheye cameras, and targeted fisheye cameras.
