Design and build live interactive media with Vuo — a visual programming environment. Drag and drop building blocks to make your own animations, sounds, apps, and more.
To create a multimedia composition with Vuo, you start by browsing through Vuo's library of nodes and pick out the ones you want to use. Nodes are your building blocks. Some nodes connect to devices, such as a mouse or a MIDI controller. Other nodes make something happen on the screen, such as popping up a window or drawing a sphere. Once you've picked some nodes, you enable them to talk to each other by connecting them with cables. For example, you can make a sphere follow the mouse pointer by having the mouse node send its coordinates to the node that positions the sphere, and then view the result on a screen window. You can learn more at our website and see links to our documentation and video tutorials.
Version 0.8 is our latest release. Click on the Version above for details.
Vuo is currently in beta. You can see our future plans at https://vuo.org/roadmap. Our vision is that by using Vuo, you will able to input and manipulate sound/audio, video, motion capture, hardware signals or data feeds in just about any way you can think of – from quick prototypes to final production. You will be able to create stand-alone Vuo apps and interface Vuo compositions with other multimedia tools. Eventually stand-alone Vuo apps will run on iOS, Android and Windows, while Vuo will run on both MacOS and Windows.
People can purchase Vuo to help fund Vuo's development. A copy of Vuo, with a year of free updates, is $80.
Vuo has a proprietary license, but in October 2014 the nodes and compiler (minus the editor) will be released as open source.
