  • Graphite Current Release Version

    I will use this Sticky as a means to Maintain the Current Version of Released Software. (Though this is on the Website in the Download section of course).

    Graphite - 2.1.0.17333
    RAVE - 2.1.0.286
    DashBoard - 8.5
    XPression - 8.5.4567


    Version 2.1 is now released and available for download

    In addition to bugs the following features were also added:

    Features of Note for this release!!! Audio Again had a focus since we have been building out on this Feature set

    Audio:

    Audio Output Custom Assignment— Up till now you were only able to pick between Passthrough / All Mixes and then select a single Stereo Pair to be embedded into the Video Streams. With Version 2.0 each output can have it's own Custom Assignment. All of the Audio Channels can be assigned any of the Stereo Mixes and in any order. Additionally for any Audio channels that you do not want to populate there is also the Silence option to select.

    Fader and Video selections — Added support for selecting which Video Channel the Fader is to follow. This will allow for the linking of items like MIC inputs and PC audio input to any of the Video channels for the AFV operation.

    Fader Dual Mono Mode — Each Fader can now select a single channel to operate in a Mono Mode. When selecting the Channel pair for the fader additional selection to pick a single channel from the Pair to be "repeated" into the stereo fader. Example : picking channels 1-2 now has additional option for 1-1 or 2-2.




    Additional New Features:


    XPression v8.5 Supported (tested with v8.5.4567) — Unleash the power of your Graphite Clips and Real Time XPression Motion Graphics!!

    DashBoard v8.5 Supported: Included in the Download package on the website.

    RossTalk UDP and Modifiers : Many devices support some ability to send ASCII Strings over IP for control. With version 2 the RossTalk Generic Device was added along with the ability to Type in a Custom Command when building your Custom Controls. This allowed interfacing to devices of all kinds without the need to go through a DashBoard intermediary. However RossTalk was TCP only and also add it’s end of line delimiter or <CR><LF> to the end.

    With Version 2.1 operators can now setup Generic devices and also specify if it is UDP or TCP. In addition being able to select a Delimiter: None, CR, LF or CRLF. This will open up another level of user definable device control!! Have fun with it

    All Buses can be followed. Add any internal switcher bus as the source to track. Additionally there Substitution table will also allow assignments for source subs based on these inputs and buses as well! This will be great for remote feeds with different rules for what can be seen on different screens.

    Released Version 2.0 and edited the Top Post. This is to BUMP the Date.

    Version 2.0 Included :

    Features of Note for this release!!!

    Audio:

    Expanded Audio Mixer — Now you have the ability to build your Mixer to the size you need it!! (up to the 48 Fader Max). This can be a combination of Audio Breakout Modules and Embedded Audio channels.

    SDI Fader and Channel selections — Now you can assign the Faders to any SDI Input and any of the Channel Pairs from those inputs. Are you doing integration and have 4-5-8-12 channels of audio coming on a single SDI input?? Not to worry your now able to assign those to individual faders and perform your Mixing as required!!

    Smooth AFV Transitions — AFV can now follow the Next transition rate so that they can cross fade in the transition!! You can select this or for the source to CUT on instead if you prefer — Like say audio effects from an XPression.

    Sample Rate converters — The first 6 inputs now have SRCs. When you turn on the Frame Sync on those channels the audio will now go through an SRC and still be usable Further the Audio Breakout Modules also have one SRC added to them for the AES input now as well.

    Audio Aux Buses — The Graphite now has an additional 3 Audio Aux Buses. This brings the total to 6 Aux Buses. The channels are now mapped in All mixes as Main, Aux 1 -Aux 6 and Monitor. This fills up the full 16 channels of audio in the embedded streams.



    Additional New Features:


    XPression v8.0 Supported (tested with v8.0.4100) — Unleash the power of your Graphite Clips and Real Time XPression Motion Graphics!!

    DashBoard GUI Additions : In DashBoar Help just like in Carbonite you now have have the manual built into the DashBoard with easy search and sections. Additions of the Panel Colour Scheme Controls, Show Alpha controls and other buses plus some added functions like Next trans buttons.

    Media Wipe Layers : Now with Graphite when doing a media wipe you can set the layer to Auto (how it always works and the default) or to which keyer it is to always be over/under. If you want to have the media wipe always on top of all video even if those keyers are not included — set it to Key 4 and now it will always go on top.

    MiniME Chroma Key Outputs Now available. Previously for use with Virtual Sets like XPression Trackless the system would need to use a Full ME to get the composited Alpha of the chroma key sent to the Virtual set for keying. Now the MiniME can be used for the hardware chroma Keyer function and still be able to route the Chroma Key Alpha to the XPression channel as well!!!





    Typo — There is a typo that made it into the release notes - since most the “Switcher” features were brought over from Carbonite version 13. There is mention of the Proc Amp and Colour Correction Menus. This is not in Graphite as there are no CC/PA in Graphite. We will try to get this updated in the download soon.
