A large part of my work is writing about and sharing the Vuo story. We believe there are all kinds of people who will embrace Vuo once they discover it’s out there. So, my efforts include helping create the Vuo website, writing press releases, submitting conference proposals and generally figuring out how to create excitement and how to spread the word about Vuo. I occasionally help out with Vuo e-mail support and I'm part of the think-tank called "Team Vuo."
We'd like to announce a seasonal discount (20% off) and share news about a new Spotlight on a dome exhibition in Mandurah, Australia, created by Paul Bourke in collaboration with other artists, our new VDMX tutorial, and a new Vuo gallery for community-built nodes.
Here in scenic Southeast Ohio the weather has turned sharply colder, the days are shorter, and Autumn's glory has faded. It's hard to miss that we're in a transition to the holiday season of gifts and good wishes. In that spirit, we're offering a seasonal discount to the Vuo community. From today, November 22nd, through November 28th you can purchase Vuo or Vuo Pro for 20% off, and you can combine this discount with our regular bulk and academic discounts. The discount also applies if you have an older version of Vuo and want our current version (1.2.6), or if you want to upgrade from Vuo to Vuo Pro. If you haven't yet made the jump to Vuo Pro, this is a great time to enjoy Vuo's Pro features:

When you add an item to the cart from this page, it will show the discount.
Spotlight: Paul Bourke's Dome exhibition in Mandurah, Australia
Our newest spotlight is about a fulldome installation called the Hydrodome that “focuses on our community’s connection to our waterways from Mandurah’s ancient Bindjareb heritage to 21st century recreation." Paul Bourke, in a collaboration with other artists, created this community installation. Several Vuo nodes including Warp Image with Projection Mesh are built on Paul's work.
Want to get started using Vuo with VDMX? Our new tutorial "Using Vuo Image Generator compositions in VDMX" shows how to integrate Vuo's live effects, including generating 3D scenes, into VDMX.
We've created a new node gallery to replace our old node list. Vuo community members can either provide a link to their nodes, or post the nodes they make on vuo.org. You can enter a link to any compositions in the composition gallery that use the node. We hope this encourages people to share the nodes they create, and makes finding community nodes easier. Let us know what you think about it.
How to load Vuo Image Generator compositions and how to manipulate Vuo's inputs (published ports) from within VDMX
Hi! I’m Jean Marie from Team Vuo. Vuo compositions can be used in other applications. In this tutorial we’ll cover how to use a specific type of Vuo composition, one that conforms to Image Generator protocol, as input to VDMX.
OK, let’s get started. Here I’m using VDMX’s simple mixer template, and I’ve already moved the crossfader all the way to the left, so we are looking at the left screen. I’m going to drag my Vuo composition into a media bin.
It takes moment to compile the first time, but after that it will be available right away.
This image generator composition shows seven 3D objects made of points with several changeable parameters, including the 3D camera position. This composition in used in a tutorial on how to use image generator compositions in VDMX.
This image generator composition is a modified Vuo example composition that shows three rotating spheres with lights. You can change the shaders that control how the spheres look, the rotation speed, and camera view. This composition is used in a tutorial on how to use image generator compositions in VDMX.
This image generator composition will display an image or video on a rotating, moving square when used with VDMX, including input from a FaceTime camera. This composition is part of a tutorial on how to use image generator compositions in VDMX.
