Description: Resolume Arena is a powerful professional tool that allows you to freely combine sound and video, as well as create high-quality visual effects for videos. The concept of the program’s interface is to represent a kind of desktop, on which the user will “lay out” the materials for the future video and will try different combinations.
Resolume Arena supports real-time mixing and rendering, is MIDI and OSC compatible, and can be extended with video and audio plugins.
Fastest: Now you can play more layers, in higher resolution (4K) and edit larger scenes. Switching decks is now much faster, so you can quickly find the clip you’re looking for. The recorder is also much faster, so you can record longer and at higher resolutions. Playback of DXV encoded files is much faster and also in other formats.
Flexible interface: The interface now displays perfectly on high resolution screens. You can customize the panels in the Resolume interface to create a template that suits your workflow. Preview monitors are now available directly in structures, groups, layers and clips.
Choose any color: No more confusion with RGB sliders, just click on the color you want. Store your favorite colors in a palette, assign them to your MIDI controllers, and you can quickly follow the light changes on stage.
Quick Search: With the search bar on each browser panel, you can quickly find effects, generators, files, and compositions.
Highlight and Edit: With color coding, you can highlight a specific clip, layer, group, column, or deck. To make it even clearer, you can now update clip thumbnails, rename columns, and reorder decks.
Media Manager: With it, you have a great overview of all the files in your composition and you can easily copy the composition to another location.
Permanent clips: Always keep your most important clips within reach by mounting them on your decks.
Arrange: With the Next & Previous Column buttons, you can easily play the created sequence by starting the next column. Great for theatrical performances and presentations.
Join the Group: With Ableton Link, Resolume can sync with Ableton Live or any other software that supports Link. You can even use it to sync two computers running Resolume.
Layer Groups: With these, you can create mini sub-compositions within your composition. Groups have their own column triggers, effects, control panel, monitor and master faders.
Text Effects: Built-in text generators are great for displaying and animating text on the fly. Just enter text, choose any font, add color, animation, and you can write the name of the DJ. (you know how they like to see their name on the screen!)
Animate! Envelopes will add life to the animation parameters. With many preset curves, you can create pattern parameters instead of just moving envelopes up and down. Indispensable in combination with Text Animator!
Shortcuts: The Keyboard, MIDI, DMX and OSC shortcut system has been fully tweaked to make it more flexible and understandable. Now you get a great overview of your shortcuts in the list and you can create presets for your favorite controllers.
