I'm sure you are keen to get started so you'll be pleased to know that the installation process is very simple. Simply download the relevant file (.exe for Windows, .dmg for Macs) from the Resolume website, run the install file and follow the instructions.
Because of the graphical acceleration that is used, Resolume Avenue does have some system requirements:
Windows: 1GB Ram, ATI Radeon 9600 or better. NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 or better.
OSX: 1GB Ram, Intel Core Duo, Intel Core 2 Duo, or Intel Xeon processor. Quartz Extreme graphics card (Resolume Avenue is not compatible with integrated Intel graphics processors
The download of Resolume 4 will work in demo mode straight away. You will notice that occasionally the Resolume logo will appear on the video output and a robotic voice will remind you what software you are using. This is the only limitation of the demo. You can use all the features and it's not crippled in any way.
In order to get out of demo mode and use Resolume for real, you will need to buy a license from our webshop or from one of our resellers. When you have done that, you will receive a serial number.
Once you have a serial number, select File > Preferences in Resolume and click the Registration tab. Enter your serial number into the text box and click Register. Resolume will now use your Internet connection to confirm your serial number with the Resolume registration database. Once this is completed, Resolume will be fully registered and the audio and video reminders will be gone. No internet connection is required to run Resolume after this.
You can register Resolume without having an Internet connection on the machine you install it on.
To do this, select File > Preferences in Resolume and click the Registration tab. Then click the Offline Registration button. Take a note of the ID Code that is shown. You will now need to use a computer that does have an Internet connection to visit: www.resolume.com/register
You will need to enter your serial number and the ID Code that you just noted. The Resolume website will then generate a registration key file. Transfer this file to the computer that you have installed Resolume on.
Now select File > Preferences in Resolume and click the Registration tab. Click the ‘Offline Registration…’ button and then the ‘Load registration file …’ button. Select the file and Resolume will become fully registered.
To remove your Resolume registration from a computer, go to the Register tab in the Preferences and click on the “Unregister” button. This will remove your serial number from the computer. And (when you have an internet connection) it will also send a message to the Resolume registration server that your serial is unregistered. This is very useful when you need to re-install your operating system or when you have bought a new computer.
