Free Resolume Avenue & Arena 4.0.1 Update

We're quite happy with the stability of Resolume 4.0.0. For most people Avenue and Arena are running rock solid. But there's always the odd bug here or there and this update (4.0.1) fixes a few annoyances. Just fixing bugs is no fun so we could not help ourselves and put a few tiny new features in. Just because we can.

The most handy feature ever is that you can now do calculations in all numeric fields. So if you want to make for instance a clip half the width you just type in: 640 / 2 and it will make the width 320 pixels. This is really handy in the advanced output screen if you need to move a slice 10 pixels, you just type + 10 after the position value and it will move. We just love it ;-)

Thanks to Daniel Radutu, Oscar Vaquero Viñes and Ronam Bonfim, Resolume is now also available in Romanian, Spanish, Catalan and Brazilian. Would you also like to translate Resolume? Japanese? Chinese? Swahili? Send us a

Comment from VJair:

nice one guys - the maths input idea is genius - im surprised ive not seen that idea before!

Comment from olowski:

would be even nicer if we could use osc adresses and math together in input fields.

Comment from Godzil:

Thanks for update, guys. that's was just in time ;)

one question: why FPS indicator disappear from output monitor screen on interface?

always. thats one of the best parts :) im still on version 3.

Comment from francoe:


Where's the 'Mask relocate' thing? I can't find it!
Is an effect, a panel...

I've installed right now the 4.0.1 to give it a try. So the first thing I tried is to make the old cachè effect of a circular iris moving on the screen.
This is what I want to achieve:

-A Clip with Transform capabilities (I need to change his scale and position)
-A Circular Mask over the clip (a fixed mask, not changing with the clip properties).
-Move all over X/Y axis of the comp.

I tried all the stack combinations, but the Transform seems to be the same for the clip and layer. Like in R3 pipeline. I only can make it work stacking at the end a plugin called FRParameter (or using the comp parameters, but that close the posibility of make 2 moving masked clips).

Yes, is dissapearing here too. Sometimes is overlayed in the Output Monitor as expected, sometimes you need to expand the preview monitor to see it. Is that right?

Comment from Joris:

Mask relocate is a file manager feature. It only shows up when a file used for a mask has gone missing.

For what you want to achieve, you need to transform twice (step 1 and 3) so it makes sense that you would need the FRParameters plugin, or do it on the composition.
