I had similar thoughts about the frustration for myself and those at Vuo when I uploaded my second and third versions of Star Glow.
I then remembered I could save my composition to the node library to test it as an image filter within Vuo, not quite the same as when it's within the intended host app for FXplugs/FFGL but good enough to make some tweaks and see the results. I also tried things out in Resolume using a Syphon client/server loop.
For now I want to give something to Vuo to be used in promotion so that we can all benefit from a larger user base and faster development of this tool.
I also don't want to give away too much of my work as there is commercial potential for some of my ideas, just need to remember to find the right balance.
Thanks for checking it out.
I like the UI you used in yours. It'd be nice to make something similar for this effect in the long run but not really needed for a FFGL as I plan to use it. The x/y controls for the linear gradient can get a bit confusing as it is now.
