I am the Senior AV Broadcast Technology Analyst at Loyalist College where I primarily design, install and maintain campus AV, Digital Signage and Broadcast systems and equipment. I have also do some teaching for Camera, VFX and Audio/Video editing as well; I love my job. My background includes Broadcast Television, Video Production and Technical work. My passions include traditional and digital drawing, fictional creative writing, VFX, and cinematic video projects. I have also recently rekindled my interest in robotics and have tinkered with Arduino and Raspberry Pi and a few programable robots.
I find I most comfortably find myself in the chaotic limbo between the artistically and technically creative, believing one can indeed excel at both. Which is probably why I am loving VUO! :)
I would like to see a colour picker UI node as I think it would be a really helpful addition to the other UI nodes especially for compositions intended to export into apps. It could output either RGB or HSL values, either in a list or as individual value outputs.
I still like the idea of being able to use a RPi in certain types of Vuo projects. I think having a clear understanding of what performance we could even expect from such a low powered device and knowing what nodes would not be compatible could also be helpful. For me, something like the "Receive NDI Video" node running on a Pi would be an amazing addition and I can think of all kinds of uses for that especially if it's efficient enough to have room for additional functionality.
People have already managed to get NDI at 720p (and 1080p kind of) running on a RPi so there is potential there.
I would really love to see the Drop-down menu UI node come into existence! I keep running into situations where it would be so useful to have.
Just a thought, since some of these UI nodes were released in Vuo 2.2 you can no longer vote on the remaining ones. I'm wondering if the above discussion should be sorted through and broken up into individual or grouped votable Feature Requests again. Thoughts?
I don't see any of them mentioned in the proposed Plan for next releases discussion but I'm secretly hoping 1-2 more UI modes could be slipped in with each of these releases. :)
