Esta semana ChamSys ha cambiado el estado de la versión 1.6.0.6 a estable para todas las plataformas excepto GNU/Linux, donde ha habido algunos problemas y está en beta todavía.

Esta nueva versión incluye muchos cambios en la interfaz de usario. Se ha cambiado el layout de las versiones para ordenadores de manera que ahora son exactamente iguales que las mesas y se ha añadido una barra de menú en la parte superior desde donde se accede a las ventana del visualizador y del nuevo media server. También desde el menu Panel se puede configurar los diseños antiguos, si el usuario los prefiere. Todo el interfaz gráfico ha sido renovado, explotando las capacidades gráficas de la nueva biblioteca Qt5 introducida en la anterior versión estable. Los menus, botones, barras y demás elementos tienen nuevas decoraciones.

La mayor novedad de esta versión sin duda es el nuevo media server. Requiere una tarjeta gráfica moderna que sea capaz de manejar OpenGl 3.3 (4.2 recomendado). Es gratis, no está bloqueado por el modo demo, y se puede usar con MagicQ o con cualquier otro controlador a través de ArtNet. Controla hasta 8 capas de video, control de máscaras, dentro de las capas (no hace falta ocupar una capa de video para hacer una máscara) , video en alta resolución, efectos, textos, … Está disponible para los tres sistemas operativos soportados (Windows, MacOs y GNU/Linux). En próximas entradas trataremos más a fondo el manejo del nuevo media server, aunque es bastante sencillo introducirse en él cargando el show MagicHD Demo directamente desde el menu Media Player o cargándolo como un show normal. ChamSys proporciona unos archivos de media de ejemplo en su página de descargas para usar con el show demo, si no los usamos deberemos convertir nuestros archivos media antes de poder usarlos con MagicHD. Esto se hace a través del menu Media Player con la opción “Convert Media”.

Un cambio importante es el nuevo modo de control de sesiones por red, que simplifica la configuración al usar varias consolas en la misma red. Ahora la única configuración que hay que realizar es habilitar el modo de sesión de red y asignar un ID de sesión en todas las mesas que estén en red. Todas las consolas Slave sincronizarán sus shows con la Master y luego sincronizarán el estado del playback. Se pueden hacer modificaciones desde las Slave en la Master y en cualquier momento una consola Slave se puede convertir en master.

La aplicación remota para iOs ha sido totalmente reescrita y la versión para MacOs ahora corre en MacOs Maverick 10.9.

La lista completa de nuevas funciones desde la última estable 1.5.9.2:

- Added support for Tap to Time on remote input and on Playback Automs.

- MagicHD

- New iOS app which allows the Execute Window images to be shown on your iPhone or iPad as images instead of boxes. Custom button images will be automatically downloaded to the iOS app. The iOS app now supports an “Idiot user mode” which forces the iOS app always to run in full Execute Window. This is set up in MagicQ app settings in the iOS settings menu. A particular console IP address can also be specified to ensure the iOS always connects to the correct console.

- The Execute Window now supports encoders for speed control of Cue Stacks. Use Insert Special, and select Encoder to insert an encoder below a recorded Cue Stack. The Encoder will only be active when the Cue Stack above is active.

- The Execute Window supports custom images for the buttons, faders and encoders. The images should be stored in the bitmaps folder and named according to:
Button up image xxxxup.bmp
Button down image xxxxdn.bmp
Fader track image xxxxtrck.bmp
Fader knob image xxxxknob.bmp
Encoder back image xxxxbase.bmp
Encoder dial image xxxxdial.bmp
Where xxxx is any name. The images can be bmp, jpeg or png. The bitmaps can be selected for each item in the Execute Window, View Design by pressing the BUTTON BITMAP soft button.

- Modify MagicQ on Mac to support OSX 10.9 Mavericks.

- MagicQ PC on Windows, Mac and Linux now has an improved look and feel together with a new menu bar of short cuts. The old button layout is still supported from the Panel menu.

- Head numbers have now been expanded so that all MagicQ versions support numbers up to 32768 regardless of the number of universes the console is set to. Note that loading shows with higher head numbers into older versions of software will cause those head numbers to be reduced to the limit of that console/software.

- Audio and MIDI status are now shown in the status box on Compact series products.

- Support for updating firmware on SnakeSys R8.

- Multi Console Simplifications:

The use of multiple MagicQ consoles in a network has been made much simpler by the introduction of the concept of Network Sessions:

A MagicQ console is made part of a network session by simply setting the Net Session Mode and choosing a Net Session ID.
Within a network session only one MagicQ console is the Master, all others are Slaves to the Master console. Only the Master console outputs universes (ArtNet/ACN/Pathport) on the network.
All Slaves in the network session are automatically synchronised to the show file from the Master console.
All Slaves in the network session can take control of part of the Output via the multi channel control feature.
All Slaves in the network session can edit show data including Palettes, Cues and Cue Stacks on the Master console (note this feature is not available in the US).
All Slaves in the network session are automatically synchronised to the playback state of the Master console. Each Slave can choose to Inhibit PB Sync, for example whilst programming.
It is possible at any time to change which console is the Master console by using the Take Control feature from the Slave console.
The Net Session Mode can be set to “Sync Auto Takeover” or “Sync Manual Takeover” – when set to “Sync Auto Takeover” if the Master console fails then a Slave will automatically take over. In “Sync Manual Takeover” the user must manually use Take Control.
It is possible to inhibit all network output from the consoles in the network session using the Inhibit All feature. All consoles outputs within the network session are disabled. It is still possible to change Master but the outputs remain disabled.
It is now no longer needed to set the Show Data Sync Type and the Show Data Sync IP – MagicQ sets this automatically within the network session.
It is now no longer needed to set the Playback Sync Type and the Playback Sync IP – MagicQ sets this automatically within the network session.
It is now no longer needed to set the Hot Takeover mode – MagicQ sets this automatically
according to the Net Session Mode.

- Configuration Simplifications:

The Network option “MultiWindows” is now no longer required and has been removed.
MagicQ for Windows, Mac and Linux and MagicQ Pro 2014, Pro 2010 and Compact consoles all have inbuilt multi windowing support. If you wish to use network based multi windows on a separate PC together with a MagicQ then set “Enable remote access” = “yes”.

The Setup option Force Window On External Monitor is now fully supported on Windows, Linux, Mac and consoles with external monitors. It forces a window onto the 2nd monitor. Previously it was only supported on older Pro consoles.

Wing configuration in Setup, View System Wings is now simplified by all wings defaulting to Playback/Extra Wing. This enables plug’n’play with one or more Playback or Extra wngs.

The Artistic License parallel port interface is no longer supported as modern PCs do not have parallel ports.

Icons are now always enabled – with options now being “Small”, “Large” and “Large when no name”. This last option enables mixing of small and large icons dependent on whether a name is set for an item.

Icons can now be set directly in the Execute Window. For Cues and Cues Stacks the icons are propagated through to the Cues in the Cue Store and the Cues Stacks in the Stack Store.

The support for a single external monitor interface on old Pro consoles using the network connected video card has now been removed as the resolutions supported were not sufficient for modern monitors. Full external monitor support at resolutions up to 1920×1200 are available via upgrade to Pro 2014.
