The latest CoGe update includes the new Vuo 1.1 SDK to supports composition created with the updated Vuo – you can read about the new Vuo 1.1 features here but check out the video below too!

CoGe 1.6.2.1 also makes the initialising process of Vuo compositions asynchronous, so the rendering won’t be blocked anymore while the Vuo SDK builds the composition in the background.

CoGe 1.6.1 released

Posted on: February 5th, 2015 by .lov.

We are proud to announce the latest and greatest version of CoGe has been released, with a lot of changes and fixes – and here are the most important things about CoGe 1.6.1.

Major improvements in the rendering pipeline

The less fancy, but most important changes are under the hood. We did a lot of enhancement around rendering, so CoGe is not just more stable but even powerful for now. For example, the Preview window now able to draw with the same FPS as the Main Output, without losing any noticeable performance. But everything comes with a price: CoGe 1.6.1 requires at least OS X 10.7 Lion.
