I have attached a file with the basic idea. The input (a kinect camera), and the output (two moving mirror lights) or not hung on the same angle . . . so I need to be able to rotate the object, and then use the VUO coordinates from that rotated object to 'map' the output to the lights.

Get mesh values . . .

Hello VUO,

I've been having a great time with VUO 2.0 Beta. Especially the new UI nodes.

I am, however, missing some of the contributors nodes that are having problems in the new version. Right now I am trying to build a follow spot system using iCue mirrors in our theatre.

co.parabox has a node called 'Get Mesh Values' but it will not run in VUO 2.0 (the composition loader crashes immediately when I hook a mesh to it). Is there any equivalent node existing in VUO 2.0? I really need to get the data from a mesh.

VUO 2.0 exporting an app . . .

Hello Team VUO. Loving the new version although still struggling a bit with instability issues (I've filed a crash report).

I have uploaded a composition here that I've been working on for my lighting design students to use. It runs well in VUO, but when I export to an APP, the app either won't run at all, or running very slowly until it eventually crashes.

trouble with sub-compositions . . .


Vuo version: 

Fixed in Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • macOS 10.13

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●●●○ — It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. create sub-composition
  2. save it to the user folder
  3. composition runs perfectly
  4. export app, it won't run properly (extremely slow)
  5. then VUO will no longer open without a restart of laptop

Have you found a workaround?: 

No, well, except to reboot.

Other notes: 

The crash log I have included is just one of many as I'm trying to find a work-around. Perhaps I am building my sub-compositions incorrectly, but I have found V2.0 to be be very unstable in regards to sub-compositions and nodes in the user library.

Thank you in advance for any help/advice you can offer.

Thank you. That was definitely the issue. Once I moved the 'User Library Folder' all is working as it should. I spent some time moving nodes back into the library one at a time, and did experience the crash problem again, but it isn't clear if its community nodes or my version 1.2 sub-compositions that are causing the crash. I will do some more exploring before I upload the whole folder.

But again, thank you for getting me up and running.
