Vectoraster 8.5.0 released

A new bigger update of Vectoraster 8 has now been released. The new version brings support for multiple custom point shapes, something that has been requested for a long time. So now you can use a set of different imported shapes or images for the points, and use them in sequence, at random or based on your sources. Along with this the backend has also been rebuilt a little to make rendering and generation more responsive along with a bunch of other improvements and fixes.

Vectoraster 8.5.0 Changes and improvements

  • Multiple custom shape support use different imported point shapes based on sources, index or at random.
  • Improved generation/rendering with better performance, responsiveness and stability.
  • Source opacity point removal with a new alpha threshold parameter. Makes it easy to remove points regardless of size where the source image is transparent.
  • Animated GIF import support for Video source layers.
  • Point fill opacity can now be applied to bitmap custom shapes as well.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed a bug with Multi-scale where clicking Apply button while typing in a value would not apply the scale.
  • Fixed an issue with quicktime video exports dropping frames if the encoder was busy.
  • Fixed a bug where animation export panel size fields would show the wrong values.
  • Fixed a bug where some settings would reset when re-opening the settings panel.

Vlobs 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 updates

Since the original release of Vlobs we've now sent out two smaller patches, the first 1.0.1 just for iOS and now the second 1.0.2 for iOS and desktop platforms. The first brought a big improvement for mobile players in the form of portrait mode support, and the second now fixes some other small issues.

Changes and improvements:

  • Portrait support on mobile!
  • Prevent board clicks while the board is animating to avoid misclicks.
  • Removed gray vlob color as it was a little too similar to the black.
  • Better Settings and Credits menu scaling on narrow screen mobile devices.
  • Fix bug that could sometimes cause incorrect game over on the last vlob placed, even if it should have saved you.

For those of you who've wondered we're also working on an Android release, and a version is currently in testing. There are however some issues we've yet to resolve, so no promises on when it will be released.
