Resolume 4.2.1 Free Maintenance Release

"Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance."
Kurt Vonnegut, Hocus Pocus

Vonnegut-Little-Things.jpg
We don't particularly like doing maintenance either, it always takes longer then expected. But we know you will enjoy a more stable Resolume. So with version 4.2.1 we managed to control ourself and just did maintenance. No shiny new toys, just the all important maintenance. Hit the download!

Artist profile: Ghostdad

A breath of fresh air in the saturated landscape of abstract EDM visuals, Ghostdad aka Ryan Sciaino caught our eye running the impressive visuals for Porter Robinson's Worlds tour. After spending a morning scouring the Interwebs for concert footage, we figured we just might as well get in touch with the legend himself.

DXV 3 Upgrade Guide

So, a few weeks ago we publicly released a new version of DXV, imaginatively called DXV3.0. It's a big improvement, and people love it. To make sure you get the best out of the codec, here's an upgrade guide.

First of all, DXV3 encoded movies will only work in Resolume 4.2 and above. In previous versions, Resolume will think they are very big and slow Quicktime files, and you will not have a good time. If you want to use DXV3, you're committed to Res 4.2.

DXV3.0 has 3 benefits: it's faster at high resolutions, files are generally smaller and it has a high quality option.

In general, we don't recommend re-encoding your entire library. Your old DXV2 files will play fine in Resolume 4.2, and you still get all the benefits of improved smoothness and bug fixes.

So there is no need to re-encode your entire DXV2 library. Especially do not re-encode your DXV2 files to DXV3 High Quality. Because you are rendering from a DXV2 source, any image artifacts are already rendered into the file. Your image quality is not improved at all, the only thing you get is bigger files that look exactly the same. And that's probably not what you want.

There are only three scenarios where we would advise re-encoding.

New Footage Releases: Familiar Faces Doing What They Do Best

The releases are coming thick and fast, but you know we always keep an eye on quality. Wherever possible, the DXV3 encoded versions will come with alpha transparency, instead of a regular black background. That means that you can get both Electric and Synthesize with embedded alpha! Happy mixing times, oh yes.

Mathias Muller is king of the particles.

Res 4.2 Speech Recognition - Look Ma, No Hands!

///// So yeah, as most of you figured out, this was our April Fools' joke for 2015. See you next year, everyone! /////

One of the exciting new features in Res 4.2 is speech recognition. That’s right, you can now control Resolume just by saying what you want to do.

Check the video for an overview of the basic controls and a some hints on the new special effect commands.

Of course speech recognition needs a clear sound signal, so when using it in a club environment, it’s best to ask the DJ to turn the music down.
