Resolume 7.0.4: Effect Renaming, Deck & Column Improvements, SMPTE >24 Hours, Bug Fixes

Resolume 7.0.4 includes many bug fixes but also some minor new features. You can rename effects, remove a lot of columns in one go and each deck can now have it's own number of columns so you do not end up with a lot of empty columns at the end of decks anymore. DMX shortcuts can now be limited to a certain range and SMPTE timecode goes to infinity and beyond!

You can now rename an effect when you right-click it and you can simply grab an effect by it's header and drop it to reorder, no need to use the confusing "hamburger menu" icon to reorder anymore.

Remove Columns

Every deck in a composition does not have to have the same number of columns anymore. Each deck can now have it's own number of columns and this keeps your decks nice and tidy. It's also very easy to remove a lot of columns now. Right click a column and you have the option to remove all columns before and after that column.

SMPTE Beyond 24 hours

According to the SMPTE timecode specifications you're not allowed to send timecode above 24 hours, however it is technically possible to go higher, now Arena will accept timecode up to 35 hours. Thanks to Danny Purdue from Programfeed for requesting this.

DMX Shortcut Range

You can now easily limit the range on a parameter for DMX shortcuts. For instance control the Scale from 100% to 200% instead of the full 0% to 1000%.

Select "Check for Updates.." in the Avenue or Arena menu and it will self-update. Or head over to the downloads.

Comment from Rcpvideo:

Thanks Resolume Team, I hope this can solve some off my problems

Comment from p8guitar:

Nice.
I bought Arena 7 when it came out but never used it seriously, because my compositions use a lot of
FFGL 1.5 sources. Maybe some day they will be updated to 2.0. Maybe not. the developer said he will update all his FFGL effects, but only two have been updated in the last 4 months.
I wish there was an option to choose between FFGL 1.5 or 2.0 in the preferences, but I understand that this is not possible technically. :(
