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."
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 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.
Both Vuo and Vuo Pro are contained in the same download. Now that you've upgraded to Vuo Pro, you should launch Vuo Editor, go to the Help menu, and click "Reactivate Vuo…". It will contact the vuo.org website to verify your new Vuo Pro license, and you'll then have access to the Vuo Pro features.
There is a lot of detailed information in our node documentation, where you can find out what nodes are included in Vuo, and what they do. Vuo is continually growing, so check out our feature requests, to see what has been chosen to be implemented, and what the community is voting to implement.
