Hello everyone. Do you have a view about how we can help the community grow by possibly changing Vuo's price? We’ve opened a poll about that. Currently, we're deep into Vuo 1.2.6, and we’ve spotlighted an installation by Xavier Boyaud that uses Vuo to create a display of light and shadows.
We want your opinion on Vuo’s pricing!
We have a burning desire to:
- add the features you request,
- incorporate new devices and technologies, and
- make Vuo easier to use.
But, to do that more quickly and efficiently, we need the Vuo community to grow, and we need a greater percentage of the funding for Vuo’s development to come from the community. We have a question about how much Vuo should cost, so please vote and please tell your friends to vote too. The one-question poll will only be open for ten days.
Vuo 1.2.6 is on the way
Vuo 1.2.6 will be released in three or four weeks. Its headline feature is a new Tree node set, containing 15 nodes for working with hierarchical data such as XML and JSON, and a new Table node set for working with CSV and TSV data. We're stuffing as many other improvements into it as time will allow —
- more image filters
- usability improvements, including templates to streamline creating your compositions, and
- bug fixes, including some user-reported graphics bugs.
If you want a taste of the Tree node set, there is a 1.2.6 alpha.
Our current release, Vuo 1.2.5, added two main new features: support for Hap movie playback and a node for drawing spline curves. It works around a performance issue in macOS 10.12, and fixes a performance bug in Vuo 1.2.4. And it provides other enhancements and bug fixes, including seven requested by the Vuo community.
Vuo 1.2.5 is a free update for people who've purchased Vuo 1.2, as will be Vuo 1.2.6.
Community Spotlight: Sculpting light and shadows
"J’utilise la lumière et l’image comme matières premières dans mon travail de recherche et de création." ("I use light and image as raw materials in my work of research and creation.") This is how Xavier Boyaud — a self-taught visual artist, lighting designer, scenographer, and videographer — describes his work.
To learn more about Xavier's current projects using Vuo, read our interview with him.
