Recycling old work … Doesn’t creators recreate all the time ? I mean a designer loves to create, I don’t know how long I can look at some old composition before I start to burn about the idea of the next one … It’s all about new stuff is it not ?
I can hear your point of view and I don’t say I don’t agree at all, but as the team mentioned, it’s such a huge work to get that done, that it could slow down the native Vuo’s expansion, which surely is much more powerful.
I think Vuo still lacks some nodes for all those Avocado and Origami users, that’s why they are not here yet. Some prototype UI nodes, more layers options, more text things, nice modern examples.
I try to be one of the users here making UI protoypes/apps to show those users what is already possible with Vuo, and I try to discover what Vuo needs to beat up those softwares.
Then I do my best to sum up the lacks and submit some Nodes here. And for each release so far one got released.
They added/are adding for example.
Hex Color Nodes (like Origami).
Custom fonts implementation (does Quartz allows that ?).
Drag and drop files to the compositions (not the editor, the composition window).
A software also needs some time to be discovered by people. It’s a jungle on the web.
Can you already export apps with Avocado and Origami ? No.
And believe me, when iOS and Windows app exportation features will be added, I think those Avocado/Origami users will jump here.
But as for Quartz, Vuo has lots of possibilities, and therefore a lot of different users. Some people want to make UI prototypes, other want apps, other wants to VJ … I think Vuo its feature will be a result of how many of these guys become active for each category of Vuo’s possibilities.
But I agree Vuo is new, was built from scratch by a small company, are selling their software for a great price, but still needs some improvements.
I’ve been speaking with some UI prototypers and great Quartz users and they told me some things in Vuo irritates them and are preventing them to use Vuo more.
In some ways Vuo is much easier then Quartz, in some others much more complex.
But I already love Vuo for all what it allows me to do what Quartz doesn’t and I’m fighting to make it not even as simple and powerful as Quartz but even better for the creation of apps.
But when I hear how much work it would need to add Quartz support, as an old Quartz user, I definitely not think that would be a solution.
But that’s my opinion and I love to discuss about it.
