Update: April Fools
It's now May 2019, 8 years after we made this April fools joke and we're still receiving emails from people asking where they can download this. I guess this was one of our best ones
Oh yes, you read it right. Resolume 2.41 is now available for the iPad!!! Mix clips the way you were used to from back in the day, on your o so shiny mobile touchscreen.
When you think about it, it actually makes you wonder why it took us so long to get it together:
1. Resolume 2.41 was made for 1024x768 resolution screens, which just happens to be exactly the size of the iPad display.
2. Resolume 2.41 doesn't use the GPU as much as Avenue, so even a device that doesn't have a modern GPU like the iPad can run it.
With the recent release of the iPad 2, we now can let the dual cores handle the work. And this makes things fly like nobody's business. That's not to say R2.41 iPad Edition won't work on the first version.
The cool part of this (for us geeks) is that we did not rewrite Resolume 2 to run on iOS, ooh no that would have been too easy. We looked at the Win32 API calls that Resolume 2 makes and we wrote a partial Windows emulator that runs on iOS so normal Windows programs can run on the iPad and iPhone. This concept is similar to WINE
on linux and could theoretically be used to run other Windows on iOS too.
Check out the teaser video, and then head over to the iTunes store!
