Vroooom! Rev that v6
Arena has everything Avenue has, plus advanced options for projection mapping and blending projectors. Control it from a lighting desk and sync to the DJ via SMPTE timecode.
New to Resolume Arena 6
Vroooom! Rev that v6
Resolume 6 is now 64 bit and multi-threaded so it can rev up all the CPU cores in your computer and utilise all available memory.
You can now play more layers, in higher resolution (4K anyone?) so you can perform on bigger stages. Deck switching is now super fast so you can quickly find that one clip you're looking for. The recorder is much faster so you can record longer and at higher resolution. Playback of DXV encoded files is much faster, as well as other formats.
The interface now renders beautifully crisp on high-resolution screens. You can re-arrange the panels in the Resolume interface to create a layout that suits your workflow. Preview monitors are now available directly on the composition, group, layer and clip panels.
Pick a Color, Any Color
No more fiddling and guessing with grey RGB sliders, just click on the color you like. Store your favourites in a palette, map them to your MIDI controller and you can quickly follow the light changes on stage.
With a search bar on every browser panel you can quickly find Effects, Generators, Files and Compositions.
Highlight & Rearrange
With color coding you can highlight a specific clip, layer, group, column or deck. To make things even clearer you can now update clip thumbnails, rename columns and rearrange decks. Always find what you're looking for quickly.
With the Media Manager you have a great overview of all the files in your composition and you can easily copy a composition to a different location.
Always keep your most important clips always within reach, by making them persistent across decks.
Go Go Go
With the Next & Previous Column buttons you can easily play a sequence by triggering the next column. Great for theater plays and scripted presentations.
Join The Band
With Ableton Link Resolume stays in sync with Ableton Live or any other software that supports Link. You can even use it to sync two computers running Resolume.
Never experience that moment again where you accidentally triggered a clip that really you shouldn't have. Lock the content on a layer and it will stay there no matter how trigger-happy you are.
With groups you can create mini-sub-compositions in your composition. Groups have their own column triggers, effects, dashboard, monitor and master faders. You can even route a group straight into a slice. Groups are an Arena only feature.
Turn an layer into a mask for all the layers beneath it or apply it to just the layer or group directly underneath.
Transform to Slices
Slice Transform effects let you position your content exactly to the input slices that you created in the Advanced Output. This is a game changer for mapping large stages with many LED panels! Arena Only.
The built-in text generators are great for displaying and animating text on the fly. Just type your text, select a font, any font, add colour, animation and you can promote the DJ. (you know how much they like to see their name on the screens)
The envelope editor adds life to your parameter animations. With many predefined curves you can make your paramaters groove instead of just move up and down. Indispensable when combined with Text Animator!
The Keyboard, MIDI, DMX and OSC Shortcut system is completely overhauled to make it more flexible and easier to understand. You now get a great overview of your shortcuts in a list and you can create presets for your favourite controllers.
Light up all the pretty colors on your MIDI controllers. See on your controller what clips are playing or even see the color of effects.
Welcome AJA & DataPath
Native support for Black Magic Design capture cards has been improved and Resolume can now get input from, and output to, capture cards from AJA and DataPath.
Hello NewTek NDI
With NewTek NDI you can send and receive video between computers on the same network. Use any resolution you like, with an alpha channel, in high quality and low latency.

Live Video Mixing
Resolume puts you in charge. You can play your videos when you want, how you want. Forwards, backwards, scratch and adjust tempo to the beat. Mix and match your visuals quickly and easily and play Resolume like an instrument.
Whatever your style is, Resolume offers you an easy interface to rock it. Use as little or as many videos and effects as you like. The only limit is your computer's raw power and your imagination.
From Your Local Club to Main Stage
You can play on any amount of screens. From a simple screen behind the DJ in your local club to main stage at Ultra. As long as your computer can recognise it as an output, Resolume will let you use it.
Projection Mapping with Arena
Project video on any type of surface. Complex geometrical structures or whole buildings. Resolume does all the hard work, so you can concentrate on the important part: being creative.
Blend Projectors with Arena
With edge blending you can seamlessly project one beautiful widescreen image with two or more projectors. It can even wrap around for a full 360 degree experience.
Project on Cars, Buildings or Pumpkins
With Arena you can take on any size mapping project. From projecting on DJ booths to cars, buildings and LED mappings on giant stages like Ultra.
LED There Be Light
Think outside the screen and colour the lights too! With Arena 5 you can send out colours to DMX fixtures and the lights will be in sync with your visuals.
Live Composite & Effects
Adjust the scale and position of your clips to suit your needs. Apply effects to drastically change the look of your video. Everything runs on the video card so you get the fastest performance and best image quality possible.
Real Time Rendering
Apply effects, blend, mix, cut and edit, everything happens on the spot. Resolume also plays your generative content made in Flash or Quartz Composer.
Audio & Visual Plugins
All visual effects in Resolume are plugins and you can easily add more effects by download 3rd party plugins. You can even program your own using OpenGL. On the audio side you can use VST plugins to play your favorite effects.
Integrate With Other Apps
With Syphon on the Mac and Spout on Windows you can stream visuals in real-time between Resolume and other apps. You can even program your own apps that integrate with Resolume.
Connect a plug & play webcam or capture a high-end camera and bring images of the crowd, the DJ or the band on-stage into your mix.
With native support for Blackmagic, AJA and DataPath capture cards you can input and output almost any video source.
Video over IP with NewTek NDI
With NewTek NDI you can send and receive video between computers on the same network. Use any resolution you like, with an alpha channel, in high quality and low latency.

What's new in version 6.1?
The 6.1.0 release is a major point release, which means we added a big feature. As we announced a few weeks ago, we made it a lot easier to sync a prepared video set to the audio coming from the DJ.
If you work with a DJ that mixes on a Denon setup, you can sync every video in Resolume to every track on the players. You can read all about that in the manual. Suffice to say, this will make banging out those DJ intros and special show moments a piece of cake.
We also have a handful of bug fixes. If you're using multiply a lot, make sure you peek the warning below!
Multiply Mixer Warning
We fixed the jump cut when ejecting a clip from a multiply layer using a transition. The multiply blend now works the same as in Photoshop. So far so good! This also means that when using the multiply blend in combination with content that has transparency, the visual result will be slightly different, also in existing compositions. If you prefer the old look, you can disable the alpha channel in the content.
