Resolume 7.10 | New Blend Modes Menu & Wire Test Slices

phpBB [video]

New Blend Modes Menu
Quickly selecting a different blend mode for a layer was always a bit of a pain in the a$$. You got this huge list of blend modes and transitions but often use only a handful. With the new blend modes dropdown menu you can favourite the blends you use the most and fold down the rest so they are out of the way.

Wire Test Slices
Creating a patch with slice inputs in Wire was like programming blindfolded. There was no way to see what your slices were doing until you loaded the patch in Arena. But now you can enable some dummy test slices on the Slices input node in Wire so you can actually see what you're doing before loading your patch in Arena.

...for Dummy Slices and the new blendmode menu!

Thank you!

Comment from psychodalien:

BTW, OSX download page lacks "No footage" installer version

Comment from Zoltán:

Huh, thanks for letting us know!

Comment from GroovinDJ:

What happened to the random transition option?

Comment from GroovinDJ:

No answer? Guess I'll just have to reinstall the previous version. :roll:

Comment from Zoltán:

Random got gone with the blend selector overhaul.
Shortcuts still have the random option, that could work to select a random blend.

Bad decision IMO. You've broken my setup, and presumably other users too. This was something I used all the time.

So how do I use a shortcut so that it randomly selects a transition when auto pilot switches to a random clip?

Comment from Zoltán:

Shortcuts for multi select items have a random option: ... iousrandom

I don't want to have to press a key in order to randomly select a blend mode.

It used to be possible to select a clip, which plays then switches to another random clip, using a random blend. The random clip & blend selection was automatic.

How I achieve the same thing now that random blends has been removed?

This is so pathetic! Like the previous speaker, I used Random all the time. Have to go back to 9.xx
Will this Random feature be brought back in future updates?

I also saw that there is Random in Wires. Maybe there's something you can adjust there.
But it's hard for me anyway. Maybe there is some kind of ready-made sketch?

Comment from GroovinDJ:

I don't think anyone's listening - or they just don't care.

Comment from Zoltán:

We're listening, better Random mixers is our ticket #17342

Comment from jerikodj:

I agree, taking out the random transition is huge step back. It was so nice since I dj and do my visuals at the same time, it's a super convenient tool to have. Please bring this back.
