Resolume Avenue - featured

Resolume Avenue is a real-time instrument for live (audio) visual performances

Avenue 4 is an instrument for VJs, AV performers and video artists. It puts all your media and effects right at your fingertips so you can quickly improvise your live visuals.



New to Resolume Avenue 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.

Faster Everything

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.

Flexible Interface
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.

Quick Search
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.

Media Manager
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.

Persistent Clips
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.

Layer Groups
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.

Mask Layers
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.

Text Effects
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.

MIDI Feedback
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.

Crash Reporter
In case of any unexpected crashes, you can directly send us a bug report so we get as much information as possible to fix it as soon an possible.

Auto Updater
We'll be releasing minor updates much more often because Resolume 6 will update itself. This way you'll always run the most recent and stable version.

One More Thing
Just One? No, we have Dozens More Things. There is so much new stuff in Resolume 6 that we could not possibly list it all here. That doesn't mean we're not going to try:

  • Fader Start: (Re)Start a clip when you put the layer fader up
  • Layer Transition and Composition Speed params on the panels
  • Clip Inserting; Drag and drop files/clips and insert at specific position
  • Multiple Keyboard/Midi shortcuts per parameter; Right click to duplicate a shortcut and change it settings
  • Value shortcuts; Quickly set a parameter to a specific value
  • Dropdowns / Button Groups can be selected and cycled via shortcuts; Assign shortcuts to your five favourite blend modes, or cycle through all of them with a single button
  • Only send out the OSC you need; Quickly select to send just the layer opacities, or just the clip triggers, or just the...
  • Render at a fixed frame-rate; You'll get much better recordings when set to 30fps
  • High Quality rendering option; 16 bit per colour channel
  • GIF Playback (dancing cats anyone?)
  • BPM Push/Pull on the Toolbar
  • Preview effects and presets. Double click them in the list like you would a file
  • Crossfader curves and its own blend mode
  • Autodetect capture device settings; No need to select the correct resolution and frame-rate anymore (if the device supports it)

  • Manage registrations via your account
  • FFT Gain dial on the toolbar
  • Show/Hide Dashboards, BeatLoopr, Crossfader, Auto Pilot, etc, etc.




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.

Intuitive Interface

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.

Live Cameras

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.

Capture Devices

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.

Audio Visual Playback

Resolume plays both audio and video files. Juggle pixels and composite beats, combine any video file with any audio file.

Audio Visual Effects

Resolume has both audio effects and video effects. Use them separately or combine them to create exciting new audio visual effects.

Audio Analysis

Make clips and effects dance to the beat. Resolume can analyse audio to make any parameter bounce to the music.

"Yes I AM actually DJing Live"

With SMPTE Timecode input in Arena you can run you clips in sync with the DJ. Watch below how Armin van Buuren controls the show with Pioneer CDJs and Resolume.


All Hands on Deck

Liberate yourself from the mouse. Use your favourite MIDI controller or get physical with your iPhone via OSC.

Control from a Lighting Desk

You can control Arena from a lighting desk using DMX. Use our standard personality or configure your own.

New in v4.1.7

New Features

  • Enttec USB Pro MK2 support
  • SMPTE input visible in status bar (bottom right)
  • Increase SMPTE input delay compensation to -5000 and +5000 ms
  • Buffered effects (like Trails, RGB Delay and Stop Motion) now flush their buffer after 1 second

New Effects

  • Jitterbug transition - Like TimeSwitcher, only better.
  • Tint - Like Colorize, only better.
  • MirrorQuad - Like Mirror, only better

Improvements and important bug fixes

  • Flash no worky on the Mac. We now include the flash player in the .app bundle so on the mac Resolume does not depend on the flash player that is installed on the system.
  • Crash when creating new composition, resizing composition and opening midi map. This was a huge thorn in our eye for a long time. Luckily we were finally able to get our hands on a machine that had the problem, and we fixed it up good.
  • Implement latest Enttec DMX USB PRO API (ftd2xx.lib). This is tech talk that basically means we now speak the same language as Enttec themselves. Entteccian.
  • Layer Opacity 0 = Bypass. When the opacity of a layer is 0 it's not rendered anymore. This can give a huge speed improvement, especially on hi-res compositions with a lot of layers.

Bug Fixes

  • Strobe effect and plugin do not respect alpha
  • Hue rotate doesn't like pink
