Be able to display ("expand") a subcomposition within its parent composition

Currently, when you double-click on a subcomposition node, the subcomposition opens in a new window. This feature request would add an alternative way of opening the subcomposition. When opened this way, the subcomposition would be embedded within the original composition. You would still see the subcomposition node in the context of the original composition, but it would be enlarged / X-rayed so you could also see the contents of the subcomposition.

Unlike Open subcomposition in same window as composition, the original composition surrounding the subcomposition would still be visible, all on one canvas.

Compositing in Vuo — Part 1

Displaying an image, adding an effect, and optimizing for better performance — by Vuo community member Magneson

Transcript: 

Compositing in Vuo can range from adding a simple filter to creating a large and complex composition that reacts to outside data and generates its own in response. To get into and understand the anatomy of a composition can be a daunting task though, so this tutorial will go through the basics to try and explain the core concepts and workflows to achieve interesting and hopefully good-looking results.

Example compositions won't open if the node set name contains uppercase letters

Status: 

Vuo version: 

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Download the MM.Points node set.
  2. The downloaded file is called MM.Points_0.vuonode. Rename to MM.Points.vuonode to match the node class names.
  3. Install the node set in the User Library.
  4. Launch Vuo.
    • File > Open Example > mm.points — Example compositions are listed, but don't open when clicked.
    • Select an MM.Points node in the Node Library — Example compositions are linked in the node documentation, but don't open when clicked.

Have you found a workaround?: 

Rename the downloaded file to mm.points.vuonode.

Provide a way for Vuo editor to stop already-running compositions

If the Vuo editor crashes, any already-running compositions continue to run. (You can quit them from the Dock, or if they don't appear in the Dock, you can quit them using Activity Monitor.)

This feature request proposes that, the next time you launch the Vuo editor, it would detect and offer to stop any compositions that are still running after a previous crash — more convenient than having to find them in Activity Monitor.
