What's new in special V2+ edition ?


We started the beta phase for Millumin V2+ : welcome here !
Please register on Millumin 's website to join the beta. Note that Millumin V2+ requires at least macOS 10.11 (El Capitan).
The beta phase should take 4 to 5 months. Then it will be sold as an upgrade for Millumin V2. We will announce the pricing before the final release in 2018.
Now, let's cover the new and advanced features of this special edition.

Important : if needed, you can redownload the official version from the website or from your account page.



Timecode support

Millumin both supports MTC and LTC timecodes to synchronize movies or timelines.



You can configure one (or more) 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).
Please read this tutorial to learn more.



Advanced Light Fixtures

Millumin now supports Open-Fixture-Library format, so you can import and create custom fixtures for your lights.
Of course, you can animate any property of the fixture right inside a timeline or dashboard.
We also redesigned the light-plot, so you could exclude lights : for example, this is very handy, when you want to create a chase for a few specific lights.







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.
Do not hesitate to use audio-layout to create shared configurations between your media.





Curves in Timelines

You can now see how keyframes affects your animation in timelines. We also added rectangle-selection, so it becomes even easier to select part of your timeline.





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.



Brand New Monitor

We unified the monitor.
Now you have a single panel to use masters (for video, audio and DMX), patch lights, watch DMX or read various logs.



Also, we are introducing the "cues" : it allows you to recall a specific time in the dashboard or the timeline. Quite pratical for rehearsals.




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, ...
We also added a zoom, so thumbnail appears bigger and with basic information.





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.
We also worked a lot on NDI performances, so there is a huge gain with 4K output for example.
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).
Please read this tutorial for learn how to use it.





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).





OSC-Query Server

This is a new protocol supported by Millumin, that helps to discover OSC messages between applications. More info on this page.
For example, Millumin can now easilly work with Vezer, since the user can quickly grab the available OSC messages.





UDP strings as OSC

You can now send UDP strings to Millumin, and this will be interpreated as OSC.
For example, send the string /go 123.45 to port 5000 (this is the usual port to receive OSC), and Millumin will detect /go as the OSC address and 123.45 as the OSC parameter.



Movie Playback Optimizations

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).
The beta phase should take 4 to 5 months. We will announce the pricing during this phase, before the final release in 2018.
