Designer 2.7 is the next major evolution of the Designer 2 software, bringing many new features, improvements, tweaks, and bug fixes.
For a full list of all the new features and improvements in the Designer 2.7 software, see below or the New In 2.7 tab within the software.
Support for our new 20 port Ethernet DMX Node, a 1U 19” eDMX to DMX converter to provide 20 DMX/RDM ports per unit, ideal for larger control projects – all seamlessly configured within Designer as part of your patch. You can find out more information on the EDN here
Support for merging values for DMX In and eDMX Pass-Through from a maximum of two sACN sources set at the same universe and channel priority.
Numerous additions and improvements to the API. These include:
Extending the Direct Colour control in Scenes, we now have a Direct Colour preset available for Timelines. This slider-based control will allow the user to set the specific values of each emitter on an RGBW/A or other multi-emitter fixtures with more colours than just RGB.
Stored audio files (and video files containing audio) can be placed on a timeline for fully synchronised audio playback utilising all our standard show control functionality, supported via Stereo line out and SPDIF on the LPC X (R2 only), VLC and VLC+ hardware.
Visual indication of the peak data of an audio clip to aid in synchronising the audio with the desired lighting presets.
New DMX input state trigger and new condition to respond to detection or to loss of the DMX input signal.
Enhancements to DALI integration:
We continue to make improvements throughout the software, with some of the highlights in v2.7 including:
