Resolume Arena 7.0.5 Rev 67117 with size 996 Mb is a set of professional tools for working with audio and video files. It has all the tools and options for Resolume Avenue, as well as unique media server capabilities (fine borders, DMX input, screen distortion, SMPTE support, video mapping for shows). Arena is a powerful tool for live audio-visual performance in real time. The principle of this program is very simple: using a keyboard, you start and mix videos, and add various effects to it, which allows you to improvise in real time with video series. The main window of the interface contains a 20-channel palette where you can load media files. Activate a channel – You start playing a video that is in the active layer.
- Transitions between clips
You will be able to smooth the transition automatically. Using transitions between clips in the new version is very easy and fun, just adjust the transition time using the slider on the layer and choose the desired blending mode from the drop-down list.
- Autopilot function
You can play all clips on the layer in sequence or in random order. This feature will be available from the Layer Properties panel and from the clip menu.
- Effect clips
Lets you work with effects, as well as with ordinary clips. This means that you can switch between them using a keyboard or MIDI controller, use it in conjunction with the “Autopilot” function and automatically smooth the transition between them. This is a completely new way to work with effects that you must like.
You can change the order of effects, masks, and transforms given. That is, it will be possible, for example, to scale a clip without scaling the mask, or applying effects only to the clip without applying it to the mask.
- MIDI output
Finally, you can make the button on the Akai APC40 light up or (even more fun) move the up / down knob on the Behringer BCF2000. 8-set instrument panel for better control of MIDI equipment.
- OSC output
Resolume is able to control software or hardware through OSC (or MIDI) output.
- Reconnect the clip
If you move media files to another location on the hard drive or even spread the composition and files to a different computer, it will now be easy to determine the completion of the new location for the file, and the necessary corrections will be made for the composition.
- Faster rendering engine
Now you can use a higher resolution for video. And finally, the Mac version of the program interface is faster and more responsive.
- Change the playback speed and direction
It is now possible to instantly change the speed or direction of clip playback on all layers at once.
- Warp screens and video mapping
In the output window, you can now combine your composition pieces in various ways and change them as desired. This is an ideal tool for mapping to multiple surfaces. The projection surface no longer has to be rectangular in shape. You can deflect your video with a sophisticated Bezier transformation, adjusting it to a curved screen.
- Frosted boundaries
The output window has become more advanced, now the borders are blurred due to overlapping parts of the video. And it is even possible to make smooth (360 degree) panorama projection.
- SMPTE input
Using SMPTE input, you can synchronize your clips with anything. Lighting, lasers and even fireworks!
