Resolume 4.1 Released!

We rarely are as excited about an update as we are about this one. Resolume 4.1 comes guns blazing with new additions to the arsenal, and shows everyone there's a new sheriff in town. So strap on your boots and put on your cowboy hat, because here we go!



By popular demand we added masking and cropping to the Advanced Output of Arena.



Also you can now route layers directly to slices, saving composition real estate and generally making your life easier.



Syphon is now natively supported on MacOSX. No more mucking about with 3rd party plugins. Just enable it via the preferences and check them thumbnails!



You can drop the bass like Paris with the new AV example set by Dan Wise.



With the new Layer Router you can now create a clip that takes the input from any layer below. For instance you can take layer 1 and and display it again as layer 4 but perhaps smaller or with a different effect. This is also really handy to create picture in picture compositions. Because the world needs more picture in picture effects.



This is a long wish come true. Like, over 10 year wish come true. Ever since Composite Station, we wanted to have a Japanese version of Resolume, and now that dream has finally come true. Konichiwa, Resolume-san! Thanks to the Projection Mapping Association of Japan.



Besides that of course there's a bunch of improvements to help improve your workflow and the ever important bug fixes. Check the full list below, or head over the download page: http://www.resolume.com/download/

Congrats Resolume team on another awesome release! :D Commented by Shorties on Tuesday July 3, 2012 at 13:57 Thanks Resolume Team. Now R4 is in another level... Commented by vj granda on Tuesday July 3, 2012 at 14:48 cosmowe... PLEASE! NEIN! :roll: Commented by subvert on Tuesday July 3, 2012 at 15:51 hahaha...I tried to find the "I Like" button from your post....no luck so far. ;) Commented by cosmowe on Tuesday July 3, 2012 at 16:16 Excellent work to all! You've squashed a majority of my personal annoyancies with 4.0.1. Cheers!
Tony Commented by Tony_Blend on Tuesday July 3, 2012 at 17:12 Is there a way to zoom in in the advanced output window ?
When u have a lot of slice in a big screen (triple head for example...), it is just impossible to manage correctly.
Also, point magnetism like in IRmapio would be great ! Commented by GuruMeditation on Tuesday July 3, 2012 at 19:58 Can u please please please incorporate audio to MIDI clock feature similar to Wavesum products right into Resolume? That would be awesome! Commented by pupdogg on Tuesday July 3, 2012 at 20:04 congrats!! Commented by pfelberg on Wednesday July 4, 2012 at 00:57

you can move the selected points with the keyboard-cursor... not the same workflow like ir-mapio but it's quiet more exact that way for me! Commented by HerrNieDa on Wednesday July 4, 2012 at 13:22 Is audio fft linked to timeline still on your to do list? Commented by meerkat82 on Wednesday July 4, 2012 at 15:44 The new advanced output broke strobing for me. If I select a screen without advanced output color will pass through, but when selecting advanced output I cant strobe color Commented by dirtyjohn_lv on Thursday July 5, 2012 at 00:55

Confirmed and ticket made. Thanks for letting us know.

Yes.

We've actually had a chat with Wavesum about this, but it wasn't in the cards. Commented by Joris on Thursday July 5, 2012 at 11:27 Still, one of the most important and may i said requested issue wasn't solved!!! the deck/library management!

is still inefficient! not rearranged alphabetically or by any other criteria unless the last deck saved (witch in theory works fine but on the job is useless) and/or the lack of space missing for the separators on the bottom of layers when all the decks are opened!

me and other users that have a huge file structure still struggle to use this new versions (since res3) because of that.

since the very first version of res3 that we are asking for an efficient deck management! this is not fair! Commented by VJsynC on Thursday July 5, 2012 at 23:43 youpiyoupiyaya!!!

we looked forward to this update!!!

thanks, I'll try that right away ;) Commented by Straight-Disorder on Friday July 6, 2012 at 13:28

Any reason for this Joris?

tbh i hadnt heard of wavesum until i read this post. Had a look, downloaded then tried the demo. Interesting little app but i found it couldn't quite keep up with certain styles of music and seemed a little sluggish. Still i want to do a little more testing and maybes it was how i had it set up. Pricey too for what it is? Some people swear by it still. Commented by Basic on Friday July 6, 2012 at 19:34

Resolume would become more expensive, for a feature that is not essential for everybody. We decided to keep the price down as much as possible. If people really want to have this functionality, they can get the WaveSum app. Commented by Joris on Monday July 9, 2012 at 14:22 Yeah good point, it does seem to be a little on the pricey side and its easy to route too so being standalone isnt much of an issue. Thanks again dude :) Commented by Basic on Monday July 9, 2012 at 16:58 hi bart and edwin great works as usual but i really dont understand the way you choose to add mask feature.

For me the logical thing is to do it the same way than in after effect , you draw the mask and you see what is inside the mask not outside ! so maybe you could add an invert mask fonction. Good thing should be to have smooth edge on the mask ( as after effect too )

thanks Commented by vjsmad on Wednesday July 11, 2012 at 21:06

I agree, I just had this problem today actually. Commented by skulpture on Thursday July 12, 2012 at 15:33 @Skulpture and VJSmad: if you want to see what is inside the mask, use a crop. Mask can be turned into crops and vice versa.

@VJSynC: I'm sorry to hear it is proving so difficult for you to run a show without the ability to change the order of the decks. The ticket for this feature request is still open, but has been given low priority as the majority of users seem to be okay with how things are. Commented by Joris on Thursday July 12, 2012 at 15:45 @Skulpture and VJSmad:
I've created a new topic for your specific issues: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9630 Commented by Joris on Friday July 13, 2012 at 12:31 A4.1.0 and 4.1.1 crashes few second after loading composition. I don't even have time to send feedback.
the same composition running smooth on A4.0.1. what can be the problem? Commented by Godzil on Friday July 20, 2012 at 10:14 For anyone who has the same problem as Godzil, as I did at the last gig I did, the problem is likely to be one or two files in the composition. Open up 4.0.1, change to a different composition or create a new one, save and quit, and 4.1.1 should open up again.

In my case I narrowed it down to a "Lines" quartz composer patch that I had added into the composition (if I remember correctly). I don't know why but 4.1.1 wouldn't load this file. Commented by samwab on Tuesday October 2, 2012 at 15:11
