Resolume 7.1.1 & 6.1.5: Bug Fixes, Alley Trim, New & Improved Blends & Transitions, New Denon DJ Hardware

Fixes Fixes Fixes
Here you go, Resolume version 7.1.1. This version took a while and was a lot of work but it has a fix-list longer than The Return of the King's end credits. Including a long standing crash that happened on NVIDIA videocards after running Resolume for a few hours. Unfortunately we had to remove the GPU meter from the statusbar for now, we hope to bring that back in a future update. At least the crash is fixed. We're confident that this release will solve the last stability issues in version 7 that some of you have been experiencing.

New & Improved Blends & Transitions
New in this release are Dissolve, Exclusion and Overlay blend modes and there are a few new "50" blends like 50 Dodge and 50 Burn. Subtract, Difference and Difference I (inverse) have been improved and now look exactly the same as in Photoshop.
You can now use any blend as a transition between clips and it will always fade smoothly from clip A to clip B. No more unexpected results when a clip contains alpha.

Alley Trim
You can now trim a video with Alley! Set the in and out points on the timeline of a video, convert, done, your video is now trimmed.

New Denon DJ Hardware
Denon DJ has just released a boatload of new hardware and version 7.1.1 ensures all that hardware and new firmware plays nice with Arena.

Avenue & Arena 6.1.5
Since many of you are still using v6 we decided to release one more update. This version fixes a crash with the Shaper effect on macOS Catalina. NDI output is now compatible with version 7 (and other applications) by fixing the alpha channel and the latest version of Alley is now included in the installers.

woooo, trimming on the alley! I was waiting for this day.

I've been exploring Avenue and am really digging this software. It's amazing!

For Alley, how does that work with 4k footage. My footage will be from a lumix gh4 set to cinema4 mode.
The files themselves seems super manageable across the adobe and media player gamut, but I'm wondering if rendering may be super slow when converting them on alley to a dvx3. Just curious if anyone has a similar experience with this?

The fact that Alley can trim clips has me thinking of kicking some other more popular subscription programs to the curb. I mean, fine, maybe in the doghouse out back, but no allowance.

If the OS can play the files, I'd recommend just trying it yourself. That's the quickest way to find out how the performance is.
You can get the free Alley installer from our download page

I actually did try it already and it was slow, but it's 4k so I expected some time for it to take. I guess I was just trying to gauge, or maybe fish for some info on converting speeds from Alley. But like you said, I've already gotten into the time wasting habit of procrastination and forum mining :lol:

Either way, the tools are tremendous. :!:

4k convertion seems pretty fast, try a 10sec clip, maybe is a bottleneck writing all that data to your drive. ;)
