Resolume 4.1.9 Update: Sweating the Small Things

//Edited 27/5 with 4.1.10 update info //

Resolume 4.1.9 is a happier and smarter Resolume. 4.1.10 is even happier.

Thanks to your quick and awesome user feedback, we were able to squash a few important bugs that had snuck their way in to the 4.1.9 release. So here's the 4.1.10 update which fixes the following bugs:

[FIXED] Glitches and crashes with some clean aperture clips
[FIXED] Twitch does not load correctly on PC and OSX 10.6.8
[FIXED] Slice stacking order is reversed
[FIXED] Alpha layer blend mode and Alpha clip transition do not work well together
[FIXED] Flash crash on Mac when removing with X button on the clip panel

Stay calm and download 4.1.10.

For this update we focused on workflow improvements. Check out the video for a quick overview of the eye catchers.

We tweaked lots of little things in lots of little places. The devil is in the details, so while you’re downloading, check out the full release notes below.

A special note to people on OSX Mavericks: in some cases, Resolume’s performance would drop when the menu bar on the second screen was disabled via ‘Displays have separate Spaces’ in the Mission Control system settings.

In 4.1.9, we are removing the menu bar automatically. So we recommend enabling ‘Displays have separate Spaces’ again in the preferences of your Mac.

Seriously,. this update is f*** amazing.
Improving the workflow sometimes is way better (and more necessary) than new features.

I have been waiting (and made a request here on the forum) for the automatic 'scroll to layer & clip" feature.
This is one of the biggest improvement you guys could have ever given to us, it will make the workflow way better and more intuitive, and consequently more creative.

and the other improvements are also great, the X/Y in/out animated parameters to comp size is crucial.

Thanks guys.

As always you rock.

Comment from basvcds:

Scrolling clips AND Twitch effect; you guys have just made my life a whole lot easier. Many thanks!

Comment from Babcom:

Thanks! Great news... Looking forward to upgrade to Mavericks : )

Comment from craftycurate:

Awesome - downloading now. Especially excited about the Alpha transition improvements as I use a lot of Flash overlays. And the clip scrolling. And the new effects. And the other stuff. All of it really :mrgreen:

Comment from craftycurate:


1) New effects awesome! I love the Twitch effect from AE and it's a very welcome addition here, and the Polka dot effect gives a lovely halftone effect which I had been recreating using Dot Grid and Pixels in Space. Nice one :)

2) The Alpha Crossfade doesn't seem to work when the layer blend mode is set to Alpha, though it works fine when using Add50 or Add (but I can't remember if it worked like this in 4.1.8 will need to check). Conditions are:

1. Set layer blend mode to Alpha
2. Make sure both clips have RGBA channels active
3. Transition between two clips with alpha channel

The alpha parts of the clip go black during the transition and disappear once the transition is completed.

This happens both when using PNGs with alpha channel and also Flash anims with Alpha.

Comment from ReggieUnderground:

NEW: Remember deck scroll position per deck

Thanks for your work.

Comment from lotech:

Not a bug report but still a request to see in the next version -
NEW: Installer now offers to copy fx and presets from previous installed version.

Comment from Mulky:

Very happy about the alpha transition fix. Nice one.

Comment from manuelgazzo:

once again, thank you very much!!

Comment from philthehorror:

Cool update. I'm noticing that my sfFreeframe plug-ins are no longer popping up. I placed them into the new vfx folder. Any ideas?

Comment from Sadler:

Make sure you copy


from your previous Resolume root to the 4.1.9 root to get the sf FFGLs to load.

Comment from thedawjones:

"FIXED: [CRASH] Selecting a buffer size of 64 or lower gives spinning wheel of death on Maverdicks. :lol:
Intent or Freudian slip?

Love the clip scrolling.
Thanks dudes.

A small tip for those who find this onerous: copy all your 3rd party FFGLs to another directory and then link that directory in Resolume/Preferences/Video/Plugins.

Doesn't sort out your presets though and you still have to link the directory but good for updating plugins across installs and getting set up quick on a new install without copying files around. Also doesn't deal with files that have to be in the Resolume root (e.g. spout) but I doubt the installer could/would want to handle these for users.

Comment from Joris:

This is indeed the recommended way of working with 3rd party plugins. Personally, I make an extra folder for them in the Resolume folder in Documents / My Documents.

Presets are stored in a presets subfolder in this Res docs folder, so they are already maintained between different versions.

Btw, when updating, all you have to do is trash the previous Resolume 4.x.x folder, which lives in Applications / Program Files (x86). Some people seem to use 3rd party apps for uninstalling. These apps trash every folder that has the word Resolume in it. Of course this means that you lose all your comps, presets, effects and even your registration.

Comment from francoe:

I've tryed the 4.1.10 version on win7, and I found that don't allow me to load clips with non standar characters in his filename (á,é,ô, etc). On the same system, v4.1.8 load the clips without any trouble.
Then I've tryed the same version on another windows installation and worked fine, as usual.
Any tip about that?
