Live Streaming with Resolume & OBS Studio

Right now the whole world seems in lockdown and unfortunately that means there’s not a lot of VJing going around these days. There’s a lot of creatives in this crisis that are using streaming to put out their work.

Here at Resolume HQ (well, not really since we’re working from home) we’ve gotten a lot of questions about streaming Resolume. We’ve written an article and made a quick tip video to help you getting started with your streaming career.

Resolume 7.1.1 & 6.1.5: Bug Fixes, Alley Trim, New & Improved Blends & Transitions, New Denon DJ Hardware

Fixes Fixes Fixes
Here you go, Resolume version 7.1.1. This version took a while and was a lot of work but it has a fix-list longer than The Return of the King's end credits. Including a long standing crash that happened on NVIDIA videocards after running Resolume for a few hours. Unfortunately we had to remove the GPU meter from the statusbar for now, we hope to bring that back in a future update. At least the crash is fixed. We're confident that this release will solve the last stability issues in version 7 that some of you have been experiencing.

New & Improved Blends & Transitions
New in this release are Dissolve, Exclusion and Overlay blend modes and there are a few new "50" blends like 50 Dodge and 50 Burn. Subtract, Difference and Difference I (inverse) have been improved and now look exactly the same as in Photoshop.
You can now use any blend as a transition between clips and it will always fade smoothly from clip A to clip B. No more unexpected results when a clip contains alpha.

Alley Trim
You can now trim a video with Alley! Set the in and out points on the timeline of a video, convert, done, your video is now trimmed.

New Denon DJ Hardware
Denon DJ has just released a boatload of new hardware and version 7.1.1 ensures all that hardware and new firmware plays nice with Arena.

Avenue & Arena 6.1.5
Since many of you are still using v6 we decided to release one more update. This version fixes a crash with the Shaper effect on macOS Catalina. NDI output is now compatible with version 7 (and other applications) by fixing the alpha channel and the latest version of Alley is now included in the installers.

Resolume Tools by PixelClone

The show creator dudes aka the Pixelwizards at PixelClone have been developing tools and software for years now, amplifying and enhancing their own shows: whilst in the midst of touring. After a long time of sculpting and perfecting: These tools are finally ready to see the light of day.

RT Stage

PixelClone invites you to have a look in their test kitchen by releasing a bunch of "Block Up" tools that expand Resolume's functionality. For example a lightweight 3D virtual Stage Preview Application that slaps a spout or syphon texture on the LED screens of a 3D Stagemodel. VJ on your virtual stage and orbit around it in real time with: RT Stage

We know PixelClone for their creative approach to combining, synchronising and expanding of various live applications. They'll jump in and out of all kinds of boxes, to find the niftiest technical solutions for creative and outrageous concepts. We were blown away by the unique options that came along with: FFGL FadeMask

PixelClone's software releases reach from nifty little converters to customized and tailored applications that can innovate your show. So it will come as no surprise that they were also closely involved, with the development of a lot of the new features, that have been released in Resolume over the past year.

Get inspired and start expanding your workflow over at

The Latest Juicebar Plugins for Resolume

A couple of weeks ago we launched our joint venture JuiceBar, the plugin store for Resolume, and it has been growing fast since! New plugins are added weekly, checkout a few of the latest additions.

Makes a 3 dimensional tunnel of your content. Adds some 3d Light options, as well as camera and texture sliders.

Loads SVG files and renders them!
This is great for logo's and other artwork that always has to be pixel perfect. By using this SVG loader, your content is always rendered as 100% on the current pixel map.

This handy source automatically reads your Advanced Output, and creates borders around your slices. It's true magic!
 With the controls you can set the border size, the overscan (no one is perfect, we know!) and the color and softness.
