r14.4.2: New features, improvements and fixes

Fixes 14.4.2

Better Notch handling to prevent unnecessary memory usage
- Can now handles multiple instances of Notch more effectively
- Meaning that memory is more efficiently allocated

Multiple users conducting simultaneous projector calibration may cause errors
- In rare cases, it is possible for multiple editors on the same session, simultaneously editing the same projector configuration to potentially cause errors

Video layer playback triggered via timecode is out of sync when playing in normal vs locked mode


Current known issues 14.4.2

Permissions error after installing
- On a small number of machines, a python-based permissions error will prevent software from starting.
- This issue can be solved by restarting Windows.

Potential UI performance regression with long and busy timelines
With either long or busy timelines containing e.g. a plethora of notes/cues, the UI may suffer a degradation in performance
Minimising the timeline negates this

r14.4.1: New features, improvements and fixes

Improvements 14.4.1

16-bit RrGgBb fixture type
- 16-bit RrGgBb fixture type, using only the coarse channels

Report shelved packets and blocked Live Updates
- This should rarely happen, but if it does, report it to the user

Ability to right-click feed name in feed visualiser
- Users currently have to go through the Machine editor to get to the FeedScene (list) editor
- Now, simply right-click the feed name to open the editor


Fixes 14.4.1

SockpuppetVideo plays back clips at double speed
- Changes to d3’s core inadvertently caused SockpuppetVideo to play back clips at double speed

32-bit Trial presents an empty stage
- In 32-bit versions of the Trial, launching any new project presented a blank Stage

Memory spikes during project sync may cause out of memory
- Employing large textures may cause d3 to run out of memory during project sync
- This can be exaggerated by other memory intense operations e.g. capturing and pinning the Videoin preview

Fit layer length to content
- Resize the layer to the length of the media or any other piece of keyframing

Support for de-interlacing on SDI capture
- Inclusion of various deinterlacing methods
- Additional filtering options for mapping-based downsampling

Projector view blending
- New projector surface property
- Permits the surface’s blend mode (over, alpha, add or multiply) to affect the projector’s resulting output


Improvements 14.4

Import/export
- Mechanism to import/export individual items
- Resembles Packages workflow

Wider support for Unicode characters
- Better handling of Unicode characters in filenames and text fields 
- Fixes a number of issues surrounding the use of accented characters 

Interpolation added to automation
- Interpolation enabled / make it automatically kick in when the frequency drops or is very low

Device recording record & playback frequency
- Updates to device recording for increased accuracy of data capture and playback relative to real world time.

Moving cue tags and notes by mouse dragging
- Alt + left click drag on a note/tag
- Option to delete a note/tag via tag creation widget

Export Timeline Personality for MA

Copy and paste layer groups
- Layer groups can now be copied and pasted

Palette Picker for colour selection
- An alternative to using colour x/y fields, right-click palette to access 
- Colour selection via the Palette Picker will affect keyframing

Automation movement threshold
- Prevents low-amplitude ‘noise’ from stationary encoders from affecting visualise
 This threshold can be set in the screen position receiver device settings

Feed view zoom shortcuts
- ‘2’, ‘3’, and ‘4’ keys now act as shortcuts to new zoom levels: 2x, 3x and 4x in the feed view and similar UI views. 
- Pixels will now be sharp at these zoom levels to assist with LED feed configurations.

Device status widget
- New widget to show device status across a network

Matrix input table
- Quickly enter and edit matrix inputs from new table UI found in machine properties.

Genlock status indicator
- Feed view indicator for Genlock status.


Fixes 14.4

Content ingestion fixed
- Previously, ingesting large quantities or amounts of content would stall. This has been rewritten and backgrounded to ensure that disguise does not halt while content gets ingested
- Additionally, the phantom files problem should be addressed. We intermittently get reports of files not being ingested and while we could never reliably reproduce this, we feel confident that the issue has been addressed with the rewrite of the ingestion system

Timecode behaviour at the end of a section
- Updated behaviour while waiting at the end of a section
- Transport will now always go into No Matching Timecode mode if waiting at the end of a section, allowing for further jumps if there are more timecode tags to jump to later on

Notch live reload/network edit
- Instance of Notch modules not being fetched correctly, resulting in poor memory usage

TelnetDVIMatrixDevice is now TelnetMatrixDevice
- Renamed to avoid confusion when using SDI routing equipment
