This is a quick turn around for Resolume, only 2 years after version 6 came out. But v7 for Avenue and Arena has big changes and Resolume has even bigger plans for the future.
Resolume Avenue VJ Software
Avenue is an instrument for VJs, AV performers and video artists. Avenue puts all your media and effects right at your fingertips, so you can quickly play and improvise your live visuals.
Resolume Arena Media Server
Arena has everything Avenue has, plus advanced options for projection mapping and blending projectors. Control it from a lighting desk and sync to the DJ via SMPTE timecode.
What’s new in Resolume 7?
New License Model – Free Updates for 12 Months
We’re changing our license model so we can innovate faster and release new or improved features more often. We will no longer charge an upgrade fee to a major version anymore. Instead, now when you buy Resolume 7, you’ll get a full year of updates, bug fixes, new features, improvements, everything and all of it. When your 12 months of free updates are over you can simply renew your license if you want to continue using the latest & greatest versions. Or you can wait, your latest eligible version will always work.
This is not a subscription
You do not have to continue paying just to use Resolume, you can use it forever. You do not have to renew your license every year, the last update before your license expires will be yours forever.
So from now on we’ll be working in smaller iterations so we can make sure a new feature is fully tested, documented, translated & ready for release. This way you’ll get to see less bugs & more new features.
Made a mistake? Just hit undo and you’re back to where you were. Removed a deck instead of renamed it? CTRL + Z and all your clips are back.
Undo is also a great design tool. Feel free to experiment with the look of your clips, apply effects, change the colors and if you do not like what you see you can always just go back with undo.
With the Resolume USB Dongle, you have a very flexible way to manage your Resolume Avenue 7 and Arena 7 license.
Register your dongle once and then insert it into any computer you like, start Resolume and it’s registered. A dongle does not require online verification after registration so it’s perfect for use on computers that are kept offline.
Color Eye Dropper
Pick a color from anywhere on your screen and apply it in your composition.
Multiple MIDI Devices
What’s better than an APC40? Two APC40’s!
Connecting multiple MIDI devices was always possible but their MIDI signals would get mixed. Resolume can now distinguish MIDI coming from different devices making them work nicely together almost magically.
Improved Random Playback
Random playback was always a bit too … well … random. But you now have a lot more control over random playback. You determine how often it will jump to a new random position and how far it is allowed to jump.
Color Palette Animation
Pink Green Pink Green Pink Green Pink Green
Animate your favorite colors in a color palette.
You can now determine how often a clip should loop before advancing to the next.
MetaBalls, Sine Wave, Spiral
They say it’s more sustainable to buy local produce. So we worked together with The Hague based artist Darien Brito to create a few versatile generators so you can create even more visuals right within Resolume.
