Resolume Avenue 3.2 Released!

Post by bart »

We're thrilled to release another Resolume update! Version 3.2 has many improvements, most noticeably Quartz Composer playback and a new version of the DXV Codec which now supports alpha channels.

Checkout the video below for a quick overview of what's new and hit the download.



Quartz Composer Playback
We want the PC and Mac version of Resolume to have the same features. But for Quartz Composer we made an exception. The possibilities of this (Mac only) technology are just too sexy to ignore. With Resolume 3.2 you can play and mix Quartz Compositions just like any other media. You can expose parameters in QC patches just like Flash parameters so you can tweak your composition while VJ-ing. This kind of control is so exciting for live visuals. Generative content is the future! Resolume installer includes demo patches made by Joris.

Improved Image Quality & Premultiplied Alpha
The image quality of the render engine has improved quite a bit. Most people will not really notice this, especially not when you output through TV-out to a mixer and then t the projector, but if you are working with pixel precise video or images you'll notice it. The engine also supports proper pre-multiplied alpha channel now so videos or PNG images with an alpha channel now render pixel perfect.

DXV Codec 2.0 with Alpha
Because the video engine can now render proper premultiplied alpha we have also added alpha channel support in the DXV Codec. Go punch a hole in your videos and give it a go. The codec is installed automatically when you install Resolume 3.2.

Feedback Fixed
Finally! Feedback is fixed for the PC. It was always working fine on Mac but on the PC it didn't even though the code was exactly the same. We have been pulling our hair out over this bug for so long, but it's all good now. Playing with feedback is extremely mesmerizing. Try it if you have never done it before, it could open a whole new world of possibilities.

Improved MIDI & Keyboard mapping on the layer transport controls
Many Resolume 2 users will enjoy this. You can now assign MIDI controllers to the speed of each layer. No matter what clip is playing in the layers, you can always adjst the speed. And direction and scratching if you like. To configure this enter the Application mapping, select Deck focus on the mapping panel and start mapping the layers.

Scaling Options
For all you 8bit style VJ's, you can now set the video engine to use "Nearest Neighbor" scaling instead of the default Trilinear. This will show the full pixel glory of your videos when you zoom in.

Send feedback & log file
On the Feedback tab in the Preferences you can now easily send us a message and include the Resolume log file. With this log file and your feedback we hope provide you with even better support and to fix bugs faster.

Unregister
On the Register tab you can now remove your serial from the computer with "Unregister". Do this before you reinstall the operating system or when you get a new computer.

Video Output Shortcuts
Press CTRL + SHIFT + 2 (CMD +SHIFT + 2 on the Mac) to instantly set the output fullscreen to the second display. Press CTRL + SHIFT + D (CMD +SHIFT + D on the Mac) to DDDDisable the output. Get it? D for Disable? ;-)

Cube Mixer
Cube mixer puts your videos on the sides of a cube and then turns the cube in a different direction every time you slide it up or down. It's a tad corny we had fun making it.

Fisheye
Bends the video like it's shot with a fisheye lens. Very popular in skate videos from the 90's. Don't know why it's called fisheye though, has anyone ever looked though the eyes of a fish to see what it looks like?

Wave Warp
This bespoke effect one is extremely versatile, totally unique, one of a kind, awesome, spectacular, fantastic ... and ... very hard to describe. It distorts the video with various oscillators. Just try it. It f*cks up your video in many beautiful ways. Excellent job Matias!

Edge Detection
Does even more than it advertises, it not only detects edges but also highlights them. Made by Matias.

- [fixed] Can't reset end looppoint back to the real end
- [fixed] Crossfader shortcuts are not saved in composition

- [fixed] Mac Avenue menu the same as on Windows
- [fixed] Disable clip menu when empty clip selected
- [fixed] BPM drifts out of sync

Yes!

At the moment I am shooting clips for and preparing a new AV-performance which is going to use alpha channels a lot and was just praying that DXV alpha support would be released before the performance takes place. I am really relieved now! :-)
