What's new in special V2+ edition ?


We started the beta phase for Millumin V2+ : welcome here !
If you did not register to participate, please go on Millumin's website to do so. Note that Millumin V2+ requires at least macOS 10.10 Yosemite or higher.
Now, let's cover the new and advanced features of this special edition.


Timecode support

Millumin both supports MTC and LTC timecodes to synchronize movies or timelines.
First of all, configure one (or more) timecode from the Device-panel (CMD+K) :


Then, you can use the option "timecode" in movie's properties, to drive it with the timecode. For timelines, it is the same (see "setup" button in timeline-mode).



Advanced Audio Routing

This option is also located in movie's properties.
It allows you to mix, and manage how every audio-channel of your movie is sent to the audio-output.





Live Preview Grid

Sometimes it is nice to see the future. This is exactly what the preview-grid is designed for : monitor what's next in your show.



To display it, click "Preview Grid" from "Window" menubar. Then, you can add as many slot as needed, organize them, resize them. A slot can preview almost anything : the next column, a specific layer, a camera, ...
You can even click a slot to start a column or a media.



Info in Library

We added a new panel to preview any media from your library. Click the "i" button in library to display it.
This panel provide advanced information about your media as well. Such the resolution, the duration, the codecs, how many times it is used in your project, ...





NDI® V3 Support

Since its early stages, we have been supporting this protocol to send video-over-ip.
This third version brings important improvements in quality, and introduces a new format, especially designed for low connection such as Wifi : NDI® HX.
Note that for the moment, NDI® HX is a protocol dedicated to NewTek Connect Spark.





Blob Tracking

This principle is simple but quite efficient : it takes an image (often from a camera), and detects "blobs" that you can track.
This tracker works as a video effect, so you will find it "Effects" tab (in properties-panel on the right of Millumin's interface).





Interaction Feedback

This is a new option for interaction : when checked, the interaction will send back a signal (MIDI, OSC, Artnet, ...) if the interaction's target is updated (property changed, column was launched, ...).
This is very useful for interfaces that can deal with feedback, such as Ableton Live, some MIDI controllers, TouchOSC or a lighting desk (via Artnet).





Movie Playback Improvements

Behind the scenes, the movie player of Millumin have been reworked a lot.
We especially worked on synchronizing movie playback to avoid audio-drift in some situation, as well as optimizing playback for movies at 50 or 60 FPS.



iOS Screen Capture

If you connect your iPhone or iPad on your computer via an USB cable, you will see this device in Millumin's library (folder "Inputs"). So you can now capture its screen.





Also

Keep in mind, this is a beta version and it does not reflect the final product. We will update this page as it evolves, and new features are added (such as the Cinema4D plugin, or the scenography prototyper).
The beta phase should take 4 to 5 months. We will announce the pricing during this phase, before the final release (planned Q1 2018).
