Vectoraster 7.3.7 update

Another update to Vectoraster 7 released today. The new fixes a couple of bugs we found after the last update and adds the support for negative shape smoothing values, letting you make new pointy shapes. While it might seem like a small change it also tweaks the way the parameter value sliders adjust their value range dynamically, which we think will be a major improvements to working with the software.

Changes in 7.3.7
  • The Smoothing parameter for polygon point shapes (and more) now accepts negative values, letting you make new pointy shapes.
  • Improved adaptive value ranges for parameter sliders.
  • New setting to toggle GPU accelerated interface rendering on/off. Default is on for retina macs.
  • Fixes a bug with launching Vectoraster by double-clicking some .VRaster files.
