Vectoraster 7 unlocking problems

It seems that something got broken in the recent 7.0.7 update, causing problems for some new users to unlock the full version after purchase. If you're having this problem with a "Null" error message, use the "Send feedback/bug report"-item in the Help menu to contact support and get help unlocking.

The problem only seems to affect some users who are trying to unlock the full version for the first time on 7.0.7 or 7.0.8, existing registered users can safely go ahead to update. Sorry for the inconvenience, hopefully we'll get a new update out soon fixing the problem.


Vectoraster 7.0.8 released

The new version adds some new functionality to the raster distortions, including greater randomization control shown above, and fixes some bugs.

Changes in 7.0.8
  • The Randomize distortion now has a single direction mode, where you can randomize the points in a single direction specified by angle instead.
  • The Wave distortion now has an angle parameter, letting you set an angle for the waves separate to the raster rotation.
  • Some improved diagnostics and error checking code.
  • Improved stability on mac OS 10.9.x
