Release: VideoTools, v2.5

Release Type: Production
Version: 2.5
Release Notes

Changes since VideoTools 2.4

  • Updated to Blackmagic SDK version 10.6.1.
  • Added the new 4K video modes available in the latest Blackmagic SDK (2160p50, 2160p5994, and 2160p60).
  • Fixed a potential crash when selecting a video mode unavailable on the selected Blackmagic device.

Credits

  • The Blackmagic Capture patch was commissioned by Stuart White of Control Freak Systems.
  • Support for selecting and simultaneously capturing from multiple Blackmagic devices was sponsored by Igloo Vision.

Known Issues

  • ProRes 4444 format does not support transparency (so videos are fully opaque)
  • H.264 videos stutter when played backwards
  • All VideoTools patches provide only video input, not audio input
  • Firewire cameras only support certain combinations of Color Coding, Resolution, and Framerate. Watch the Error output and Console log when troubleshooting.
  • Due to issues with the underlying frameworks, video device info cannot be queried once a video device is in use. Therefore Video Device Info is only updated once: when the composition is first started.

Release: QuartzCrystal, v2.2

Release Type: Production
Version: 2.2
Release Notes

Changes

  • Added workaround for bug in QuartzComposer.framework on Mac OS 10.11, which creates the offline rendering context without a depth buffer, causing incorrect rendering.

Known Issues

See the QuartzCrystal 2.0 release notes.

Release: NetworkTools, v1.6

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.6
Release Notes

Changes

  • Added "Query Headers" input to the HTTP Query patch. (Thanks to @incubo for sponsoring this!)

Release: NetworkTools, v1.5

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.5
Release Notes

Changes

  • Fixed bug where the Kineme HTTP Query patch's "Update Signal" port would perform multiple queries, which often leads to failed requests and emptystring output (Thanks to @monobrau for reporting this!)

Release: NetworkTools, v1.4

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.4
Release Notes

Changes since NetworkTools 1.3

  • Enabled support for license activation using QuartzBuilder.

Release: QuartzCrystal, v2.1

Release Type: Production
Version: 2.1
Release Notes

Changes since QuartzCrystal 2.0

Known Issues

See the QuartzCrystal 2.0 release notes.

Release: Art-Net Tools, v1.6

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.6
Release Notes

Changes since Art-Net Tools 1.5

  • Changed network port settings so that multiple applications using Art-Net Tools can be opened on the same computer at the same time.
  • Fixed crash in Art-Net Receiver when a composition is started while there is a large amount of network traffic.
  • Added workaround for issue when using Art-Net Sender in Resolume Arena, so that it continues to send messages after stopping and restarting a clip.

Release: NetworkTools, v1.3

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.3
Release Notes

Changes since NetworkTools 1.2

  • Fixed crash when HTTP Query patch's Body input is connected to the wrong type of port.
  • Added Content-Type to the HTTP headers in the request sent by the HTTP Query patch.
  • Fixed issue where the HTTP Query patch ignored the URL's fragment.

Release: Kineme3D, v1.9

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.9
Release Notes

Changes since Kineme3D 1.8

  • Added keyed structure output to the Vertex Structure With Object patch.
  • Added keyed structure input to the 3D Object with Vertex Structure patch.
  • Fixed crash when running the Mesh Blender patch in Resolume Arena.

Known Issues

  • OS 10.8 introduced changes to the OpenGL calls made in QC's Mesh and Sprite patches. In OS 10.8 a Sprite or Mesh Renderer patch rendered in the same scene and directly before a Kineme3D Object may corrupt the Kineme3D object's triangle buffer.

Workarounds:

  • If possible, modify the rendering order such that 3D Object Renderer is before the Sprite patch, or not immediately following it.
  • Use 3D Plane Generator and 3D Object Renderer in lieu of a Sprite patch.

Release: VideoTools, v2.4

Release Type: Production
Version: 2.4
Release Notes

Changes since VideoTools 2.3

  • Fixed crash when using the Blackmagic Capture patch. (Bug reports: 1, 2, 3.)
  • Improved quality of the YUV-to-RGB conversion in the Blackmagic Capture patch (eliminated the vertical stripes).
  • Added input ports to the Blackmagic Capture patch to select which device and input connection to capture.
  • Added more capture formats to the Blackmagic Capture patch: 4k (23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30), NTSC-progressive, PAL-progressive.
  • Improved error handling in the Blackmagic Capture patch.
