Resolume 7.2.0 Released! Clip Renderer, Recording & Conversion Improvements, 2 New Effects

With version 7.2 we're making Resolume a bit more useful for content production rather than live performances because ... well you know why. So you can now render clips to file with Resolume. Record straight to DXV or ProRes. And Alley can now convert to ProRes and Motion JPEG. ProRes video playback is also much improved. There are 2 news effects: Pixel Blur and Bloom. And the interface text is now rendered with the Noto Sans font.

Clip Renderer
To make Resolume a bit more useful in your studio for creating content rather than live shows you can now render your clips to disk! Go crazy with sources, shapes, text, add as many effects you like and when you are happy with the result you can render it to a file and share it anywhere you like. Check it out. You'll find it in the Clip menu: Render to File. Read all the instructions in the Clip Renderer support article.

Recording Improvements
You can now record straight to DXV 3 or ProRes and it will record at the frame rate set for the composition. All versions of DXV 3 and ProRes are supported so this means you can now preserve alpha in your recordings when you use DXV 3 Normal or High Quality with Alpha or ProRes4444. You'll find these settings in the new Recording tab of the Preferences and we updated the Recording support article with instructions.

ProRes & Motion JPEG Conversion in Alley
Alley can now not only convert to the DXV 3 codec but thanks to a licensing deal with Apple, Alley can now also render to all flavours of ProRes on both macOS and Windows. And we also added good old Motion JPEG conversion.

Improved ProRes Playback
Playback of ProRes encoded video files is now much much faster so you can actually VJ in pristine image quality using ProRes.

New Effects: Pixel Blur & Bloom
The standard Blur effect in Resolume is built for speed but to do this it needs to sacrifice some image quality. Most of the time it's good enough but sometimes you just want a pixel precise blur just like you have in Photoshop. Resolume now has a picture perfect blur and it's called Pixel Blur. Check it out, it's gorgeous but not as fast and the standard Blur so choose your weapons wisely.

To make a Bloom effect you need a pixel perfect blur and lo and behold, we have this now so we also created a Bloom effect, just because we can. No not just because we can but because it makes your footage look all nice and glowy on the outside, and that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

NDI Updated to version 4.5
NDI inside Resolume is updated to the latest version and we managed to fix a few minor bugs so streaming with NDI to OBS should be running nice and smooth.

New Interface Font - Noto Sans
Noto Sans is now used in the Resolume interface. This font supports more characters and has a more consistent look on Chinese and Japanese. The Noto Sans font is also included in the installer so we're not dependent on what macOS or Windows ship with their operating systems anymore. Noto Sans is an open source font made by Google. Thank you Google, we love you, we hate you, we need you.

Clip Renderer is amazing! Great release.

Comment from flik:

Love the Clip Render!!! This has been one of my big wishes for a while.

Comment from John McGeoch:

Bloody brilliant, Resolume a real weapon now ....

Comment from morymb:

This is great, thank you!

It's so much closer now to what got me transitioning from adobe to resolume for my effects bulk. I'm curious, anyone have suggestions on, when creating live blooms to coincide with beat accents, to minimize frame drops when recording out using record function?

I'm assuming a quick and dirty clip render mixdown with source file then bringing it back in as MJPEG and doing the live "record out" with that. I'm going to try it.
