Resolume 7.11 | Apple Silicon Compatible & Delay Effects

Version 7.11.0 is a universal build on macOS. This means that it will run the native ARM architecture on macs with Apple silicon and it will run the native Intel architecture on macs with an Intel processor. All our software already ran great on M1 macs because those machines are very fast and efficient and because Rosetta emulation works just fine. This new universal build does not bring much performance gain on an M1 machine but it's nice to have it running natively without emulation.

FFGL plugins also need be compiled universally to work in a universal app. So when you use 7.11 on an M1 Mac then you need to make sure your FFGL plugins are also universal builds. If it's not possible to update the FFGL plugins then it's still possible to run a universal build in Intel mode on an M1 mac using Rosetta emulation using these instructions. For FFGL developers we have updated the examples and added compile instructions on GitHub.

Delay Effects
Travel back in time! The Buffer and Ring Buffer nodes now accept texture2d so you can create delay effects with Wire. Delays are a lot of fun but do be careful with long delays because they eat VRAM for breakfast.

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.

Wire Fix List
#15925 String to Float & Int Conversion
#16387 Choice Input, Buttons or Dropdown
#16820 ALT + SHIFT Click to select entire "branch" in wire patch

Resolume 7.9 | Preview Advanced Output Screens & Node Library Search

phpBB [video]


Preview Advanced Output Screens & CrossFader
Since version 7.7 you can create as many preview monitors you like and directly monitor layer and groups. We're now taking this one step further by introducing preview monitoring of screens from the advanced Output and the CrossFader. Open the monitor menu by clicking on the radar icon in the bottom right of every monitor.

Node Library Search Improvements
Version 7.9 changes the way you patch in Wire forever. The Node Library with search can now be brought up by double clicking on inlets & outlets and by double clicking on a wire. This makes patching sooo much faster! You can also now select a node, press CMD + ENTER on macOS and CTRL + ENTER on Windows to open the node library, search what you're looking for and press enter to the create the node, this way you can use the mouse even less and patch even faster.

Installing Wire Patches
Drop a compiled Wire patch onto Arena and Avenue and it will be copied to the correct folder and show up in the Wire category on the Effects and Sources panels instead of listed as a "normal effect".

Avenue & Arena Fix List
#14279 Update to FFmpeg 4.3
#16853 Swagger.yaml has wrong value type for clip Connected
#16584 Stutter when loading & triggering a clip with Syphon input
#16600 Recalling cue point when AV clip is paused, audio position is not recalled

#16688 Snapshot can create image from wrong node, move Snapshot to Node menu
#16754 Length isn't multi-class

Resolume 7.8 | Control & Monitor Arena, Avenue and Wire via the REST-API

With the REST-API and built-in webserver we're introducing by far the most powerful way to monitor and control Avenue, Arena and Wire. With the REST-API you can get and set any parameter value in the composition and you can even get clip thumbnail images! Communication via the REST-API can be done in almost any programming language, but most importantly in Javascript. This way you can for instance control and monitor your composition and Wire patches via a web-page on a tablet or phone. Checkout this support article for all the details and links to the API documentation.

phpBB [video]


We have created a few examples that are very useful already. For Arena & Avenue there is a basic clip triggering webpage that is a great companion next to your MIDI controller to trigger your most important clips, you can easily identify them because they show the clip thumbnail and highlight when they are playing just like Avenue & Arena. There is also a basic recreation of the Arena & Avenue interface in a webpage to show that you can control almost anything.

For Wire there is a basic example that shows the input parameters for the current patch so you can preview and control it from any web browser, including your phone.

These examples are bundled with 7.8 and run out of the box but they are also open source projects so you can use them as a starting point for your own custom interfaces.
You enable the REST-API and webserver in the Preferences.

7.8.0 Fix List
#14883 Preserve Alpha with Chroma Key effect
#16460 Chroma Key Edge Blur eats my GPU
#16695 Dragging the default transform to other targets should make a removable copy
#16767 Remove Custom from transport mode defaults
#16696 Bloom and Iterate not working properly on M1
#16658 Midi device is ignored if device connected after Wire starts
#16677 Multichannel texture support for logic nodes
