Every user of course has their own experience, ours is that there are no real structural problems when using Resolume on Mavericks.
So far, there are four known issues affecting VJs. 2 of these are to do with the system, 2 are with Resolume itself.
Directly Resolume related:
- Resolume will crash when setting an audio buffer lower than 64. We're working on fixing this for 4.1.9
- When using files that are *not* DXV encoded, memory runs out quicker than on previous OS versions. This can cause some compositions that previously worked to crash. Preventing this is simply a case of using less files per deck (the limit seems to be somewhere around 60 1080p files), or of course using DXV.
- The menu bar is visible on all outputs. This can easily be disabled (http://www.mactrast.com/2013/10/disable ... mavericks/
), we're also looking into whether we can do this for you on 4.1.9.
- DXV encoded files do not play in Quicktime Player or Quicklook. This affect all non-Apple codecs, and is unfortunately out of our hands. DXV encoded files play fine in Resolume itself.
Particularly that last point can be a dealbreaker, so if that's the case for you we recommend against upgrading. Otherwise, or when getting a new computer, we see no real reason to hold off.
