Resolume 7.0.5: NDI 4, FFGL Plugin Improvements, Smoother SMPTE Playback, Alley Footage Downloader

NDI is updated to version 4 which is faster and has better compression. Playback via SMPTE is a lot smoother. Installing new FFGL plugins does not require a restart anymore and when FFGL plugins are missing in a composition you now see a warning. Last but not least Alley can now download Resolume footage for you!

Alley Footage Downloader
When you buy footage in the Resolume shop you have to download a lot of zip files, unzip them when they are downloaded and then copy the files to your desired location. That all requires a lot of time clicking with your mouse and let's be honest we would all prefer to spend our precious mouse clicks on something else. So now Alley can download and unzip footage packs for you! Log in to your shop account and you'll now find a Download with Alley button on your footage packs, click it (after you have installed 7.0.5) and Alley will take care of everything. Huge timesaver! 💪🏻

NDI is updated to version 4 which is faster and has improved image quality. NDI 16 bit streaming is not yet supported.

Improved FFGL Plugin Management
When you install an FFGL plugin you do not have to restart Resolume anymore to make sure it shows up in the interface. Now FFGL plugins will show up in Resolume instantly even when it's already running. And when you open a composition that uses FFGL plugins that are not installed you'll see a red warning to let you know they are missing. Install them and you're good to go, no restart required.

Smoother SMPTE Playback
While working on the SMPTE above 24 hours in version 7.0.4 we saw some more room for improvement. So now video playback is a lot smoother when controlled by SMPTE.

NVIDIA Application Profile
We now install an NVIDIA application profile to make sure the driver settings are optimal for Avenue & Arena.

Swap Input Output Shape in the Advanced Output
Make the input shape of a slice the output shape and the output shape the input shape. Get it? Neither do we ;-) But this is sometimes quite handy when you're creating complex mappings with various virtual screens. Right-click a slice and you'll find this option in the slice popup menu.

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