A quick introduction to Vuo so you can start making your own compositions
Welcome to the Vuo community. This is Jamie from the Vuo team. This tutorial will cover the basics of Vuo so you can start making your own compositions. If you haven't already, download and install Vuo. I'm going to show you how to make an animated pattern that looks like this.
If you are using it in VDMX, we think it's about as smooth as the QC "Scrolling Text" composition, but neither are very smooth in the preview window. If you select Window > Full-Screen Toggle, the Vuo composition is pretty smooth. To make it look smoother, the composition has some motion blur added, and it accumulates the position via Count instead of using the Time input, so that if macOS causes it to drop a frame, the text won't jump horizontally.
Based in the DrawTailBehindMouse composition (in the manual, page 79), but instead of the mouse position, I used the hand position to draw the trail. The Grab command define the thickness (open hand show nothing, you must grab your hand a little: more grab, more thickness.
Its a very simple composition, remixes are more than welcome :)
I'm a very beginner, happy with the 2.0 version...
Hello. I'm Jaymie. This is Steve. We're part of the team that develops Vuo, a software tool for doing creative work. We'll be showing you how you can use Vuo to make your own graphics, display them on a dome, and interact with them.
I find it easier to explain what Vuo can do through examples, so let's start with that.
