How do I use Vuo 1.2 with VDMX5 b8.5.0.7?

VDMX5 b8.5.0.7 comes with Vuo 1.1.1. How do I use my Vuo 1.2 compositions in VDMX?

VDMX5 doesn’t yet have built-in support for Vuo 1.2 — they plan to release an updated version soon. In the meantime, you can hack VDMX in order to use Vuo 1.2 compositions with it. Do this at your own risk — and if you encounter problems, please contact Team Vuo (don’t bug VIDVOX).

  1. Make sure you have VDMX5 b8.5.0.7 and Vuo Editor 1.2.2 or later. This trick doesn’t work with earlier versions.
  2. Make a backup copy of and Vuo
  3. In Finder, right-click on and click Show Package Contents.
  4. Navigate through the following folders: Contents > Frameworks > VVVuoKit.framework > Versions > A > Frameworks
  5. Move Vuo.framework to the trash.
  6. Keep that Finder window open, then open another Finder window, right-click on Vuo, and click Show Package Contents.
  7. Navigate through the following folders: Contents > Frameworks
  8. Copy Vuo.framework from Vuo into (the same folder you navigated to in step 4). Make sure you copy it (so you leave a copy in both Vuo and
  9. Open, and type cd followed by space.
  10. Drag the copy of Vuo.framework from into the Terminal window. It should fill in the path. Press Return.
  11. Paste the following command in Terminal, then press Return: ln -s 1.2.2 Versions/1.1.1 (substitute your Vuo Editor version in place of 1.2.2)
  12. Run VDMX and enjoy.  

This would be awesome… I’m waiting for this.  

This works with 1.2.3 too! :-) Thank you so much for this hint!

The most recent VDMX release (VDMX5 b8.6.0.6) comes with the Vuo 1.2.3 framework. So VDMX can now run Vuo 1.2.3 compositions.

Now that Vuo 1.2.4 is out, the steps below can be used to substitute the new Vuo framework into VDMX5 b8.6.0.6.

VDMX b0., a newer version, has support for Vuo 1.2.6.
