Kosada's Vuo 1.2 simplifies creating interactive audio, video, and 2D + 3D animation projects

Vuo lets media creators make interactive animations, exhibits, and professional-grade media projects by connecting up simple building blocks. Media creators can use these blocks to manipulate audio input, images, layers, videos, and 2D + 3D graphics, as well as record high-quality video of the results. Vuo 1.2 adds the ability to create custom building blocks, further simplifying workflow.

Vuo 1.2 provides quality and speed increases when rendering complex graphics, due to improved graphics performance and reduced CPU usage. In Vuo 1.2 for Mac OS X, media creators can organize and simplify their compositions by combining Vuo’s building blocks to create larger, custom, reusable building blocks.

Their old website, developed in 2007, required an overhaul to freshen its look, improve its efficiency, and meet the growing need for people accessing its content from mobile devices. Research Design Connections publishes research-backed articles on how design affects human emotions and behavior to an audience that includes interior designers, architects, and landscape architects.
