Introduction to Vuo

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.

Insert node with context menu option on ports

You would be able to right-click on a port and choose from a menu of compatible nodes. The chosen node would be added to the canvas with a cable connecting it to the port.

Like Insert node between other nodes, this feature request intends to provide a convenient way to insert a node onto the canvas. The difference is that the other feature request is for dropping a node onto a cable or port, whereas this one is for a context menu on ports.

Editable Value fields on Editor canvas to increase in scale when view is zoomed in beyond actual size.

Sometimes I zoom in to read the small expressions in Calculate nodes, especially at night time. While the expression in the canvas is enlarged as you zoom in (but truncated), if you double click the field to edit it, the text is still the small size as per an "actual size" zoom magnification. SO it's still hard to read on a big screen for me at night a fair distance from my eyes.

As illustrated below.

Shortcut to follow a cable

Hi,

i find several time follow a cable to check what it is connected to. I think could be a useful upgrade a shortcut that automatically follows the cable showing the connected node in center of the window.

Like: ⌘← show the node where the cable originates inputting in the input pin of the selected node.

And: ⌘→ show the first node receiving data form the selected node. Following + right arrow shows eventual other nodes receiving data form the same node.

Composition Loader apps have the name in Finder Dock

Although we have the window title of composition run/view windows set to the files name automatically, they all appear as "VuoCompositionLoader" and I can't remember which one is which because Dock always juggles things around.

Be good to have the app process name changed to file name, or even just VuoCompLoader1, VuoCompLoader2,… if that is less work. It's a minor request but would help. I tend to have several compositions running to help me understand how a particular node or combination of nodes works when I'm working on a bigger composition.

I use ⌘⇧R to achieve this ATM, but involves a time wait and reset state penalty.
