Avenue is an instrument for VJs, AV performers and video artists.

Resolume Avenue puts all your media and effects right at your fingertips so you can quickly improvise your live visuals.

Live Video Mixing

Resolume puts you in charge. You can play your videos when you want, how you want. Forwards, backward, scratch and adjust tempo to the beat. Mix and match your visuals quickly and easily and play Resolume like an instrument.

Resolume SS Layers

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 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 the main stage at Ultra. As long as your computer can recognize it as an output, Resolume will let you use it.

Audio Visual Playback

Resolume plays both audio and video files. Animate pixels and drop beats, combine any video file with any audio file.

Resolume AV Layers

Audio Visual Effects

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

Audio Analysis

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

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.

Resolume Projection mapping

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.

Resolume soft edge

LED There Be Light

Think outside the screen and color the lights too! With Arena you can send out colors 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.

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 share visuals in real-time between Resolume and other apps running on the same computer. You can even program your own apps that integrate with Resolume.

All Hands on Deck

Liberate yourself from the mouse. Use your favorite 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. So you can operate the lights and video with the touch of a fader.

What’s New In Resolume 7?

resolume undo


You now have a little guardian angel looking over your shoulder. Made a mistake? Just hit undo and you’re back to where you were. Accidentally removed a deck instead of renamed it? Hit CTRL + Z and all your clips are back. Phew!

Undo is also a great design tool. Feel free to experiment with the look of your clips, apply effects, change the colors and if you do not like what you see you can always go back with undo.

resolume dongleUSB License Dongle Option

With the Resolume USB Dongle, you have a very flexible way to manage your Resolume Avenue 7 and Arena 7 license.

Register your dongle once and then insert it into any computer you like, start Resolume and it’s registered. A dongle does not require online verification after registration so it’s perfect for use on computers that are kept offline.

Please contact sales@toolfarm.com for a custom quote on the USB dongle.

Pick a color from anywhere on your screen and apply it in your composition.

Multiple MIDI Devices

Resolume multi-midi
What’s better than an APC40? Two APC40’s!
Connecting multiple MIDI devices was always possible but their MIDI signals would get mixed. Resolume can now distinguish MIDI coming from different devices making them work nicely together almost magically.

Improved Random Playback

Random playback was always a bit too … well … random. But you now have a lot more control over random playback. You determine how often it will jump to a new random position and how far it is allowed to jump.

Autopilot Loops

You can now determine how often a clip should loop before advancing to the next.

MetaBalls, Sine Wave, Spiral

They say it’s more sustainable to buy local produce. So we worked together with The Hague based artist Darien Brito to create a few versatile generators so you can create even more visuals right within Resolume.

Free Updates for 12 Months

Starting with version 7 you receive free updates for 12 months when you buy a Resolume license. After this period you can renew your license to receive updates again. This is not a subscription. Your last eligible update will always continue working. Read our blog post to learn why we’re doing this. Check out this support article for all the details.

Let’s Get Technical

A lot of under-the-hood changes have been made to make Resolume run faster, more efficient and more robust.

Improved Media Manager

Clip reconnecting in the Media Manager is simplified to make it faster and more robust.

FFGL 2.0 Plugins

The FFGL plugin standard is updated to version 2.0. Plugins can now receive Audio FFT input to create audio visualizers. Parameters can be spinners or drop-downs. Parameter ranges can be customized and are not limited to always 0.0 – 1.0 anymore. The documentation & examples are also improved on the GitHub repository.

FFGL 2.0 now requires OpenGL 4.1 so plugins that work in version 6 will not work in version 7, those plugins will need to be updated by the developer who created them.

Native ProRes Playback

Resolume can now play ProRes video on both macOS & Windows. Alley 2.1.0 can convert ProRes to DXV.

DVX Codec

High-Performance Codec

With the DXV 3 Codec, you can mix more video layers on a higher resolution than any other codec. How? By doing all the hard work on the hardware that does it best: the video card.

Easy to Use

DXV comes with just a few settings that are designed to deliver maximum performance with minimal loss of quality. Let the codec do the thinking so you can do the mixing.

Alpha Channel

The DXV codec can also store an alpha channel. This is essential for preserving transparency in complex video compositions.

Adobe DXV Plugins

We have created a set of Adobe DXV exporter & importer plugins that enable rendering with the DXV codec in Adobe Premiere Pro, Media Encoder and After Effects.

Convert to DXV with Alley 2.0

Resolume Alley is a super quick lightweight video player and video converter. It plays all your media files, including DXV files, straight from the file browser. Convert your video files to DXV in just a few clicks.


The DXV Codec is a cross-platform QuickTime codec. Any QuickTime enabled application on Mac and PC can render video files to DXV.


The DXV codec is free and included in the Arena, Avenue, and Alley installers. Check out this support article about DXV to learn how to render your files with the DXV codec.

Resolume 7.8

With the REST-API and built-in webserver we’re introducing by far the most powerful way to monitor and control Avenue, Arena and Wire. With the REST-API you can get and set any parameter value in the composition and you can even get clip thumbnail images! Communication via the REST-API can be done in almost any programming language, but most importantly in Javascript. This way you can for instance control and monitor your composition and Wire patches via a web-page on a tablet or phone. Checkout this support article for all the details and links to the API documentation.

We have created a few examples that are very useful already. For Arena & Avenue there is a basic clip triggering webpage that is a great companion next to your MIDI controller to trigger your most important clips, you can easily identify them because they show the clip thumbnail and highlight when they are playing just like Avenue & Arena. There is also a basic recreation of the Arena & Avenue interface in a webpage to show that you can control almost anything.

For Wire there is a basic example that shows the input parameters for the current patch so you can preview and control it from any web browser, including your phone.

These examples are bundled with 7.8 and run out of the box but they are also open source projects so you can use them as a starting point for your own custom interfaces.
You enable the REST-API and webserver in the Preferences.

Multiple Preview Monitors
You can now make as many preview monitors as you like. Become a creepy surveillance guy and spy on all your layers, groups and your composition at the same time in Avenue and Arena. Right click on a monitor to duplicate it and use the cogwheel at the bottom right to change what you want to monitor. In Wire you can now also create multiple preview monitors and pin them to any node you like.

Effect & Source Favorites
With so many effects and sources you are sure to have some favorites. With the release of version 7.7 you can now favorite your effects and sources. Simply click the heart icon to favorite an effect or source and they will show up at the top of the lists, within easy reach.

Wire Color Picker
Wire got a new color picker! You can now also construct colors with HSB-sliders, lock colors in a palette and use the built-in color harmonies to create tight designs. All color pickers (yes, Arena and Avenue too) can now be locked horizontally by holding down the SHIFT-key or vertically by holding down the ALT-key

Custom Layouts

We’ve taken the layouts to a whole new level with this update.
Arena, Avenue and Wire now have undockable panels.
This feature lets you create custom multi-screen interfaces with ease.
Wire now has moveable panels, so you can create custom UI’s that fit your needs.

Colored Nodes

To continue this wave of customization, we would like to introduce you to colored nodes.
Color coding nodes helps you to organize your patch.
In addition to this we’ve given the comment node the option to be hollow.
This helps you to group nodes together, all in the name of beign organized!

Video Exporter

You can now export the video from your patch directly from Wire.
After you’ve made your latest Wire masterpiece you can easily export it to a video file using the brand new Video Exporter. The Video Exporter inherits all it’s features from the Arena/Avenue exporter, so expect all your favorite codecs to be included.


Wire has a new tab called the Dashboard.
In the Dashboard you can reorder your input nodes.
The order you make in the Dashboard will be the order that shows up in the Arena/Avenue interface when running your patches.

Resolume v7.3.0

Resolume 7.3.0 has start options for parameter animations. You can now determine when a parameter animation starts and re-triggers as well as playing BPM parameter animations out of the global BPM phase. 7.3.0 also contains two new generators; Abstract Field and Tunnelines. A picture in picture mixer (PiP). Two new effects; Acuarela and Tilt Shift. And of course, as usual, a lot of small bug fixes.

Parameter Start Settings

When you set a parameter to animate on a Timeline or BPM Sync you now have some extra options to determine when exactly it is started and re-triggered. What this does exactly is hard to describe in words, but we tried anyway here. It’s best shown by example so check out the video that explains it all.

Upgraded FFGL to v2.2

With FFGL version 2.2 developers can more easily debug their plugins and group parameters together. All details are on our GitHub repo.

Backward Compatibility

Compositions saved in version 7.3.0 are not fully backward compatible with older versions like 7.2.1 This is not usually a problem but you should be aware of this when for instance sharing a composition with others. Once saved in 7.3.0 you should always open in 7.3.0 (or higher).

Resolume v7.2

With version 7.2 we’re making Resolume a bit more useful for content production rather than live performances because … well you know why. So you can now render clips to file with Resolume. Record straight to DXV or ProRes. And Alley can now convert to ProRes and Motion JPEG. ProRes video playback is also much improved. There are 2 news effects: Pixel Blur and Bloom. And the interface text is now rendered with the Noto Sans font.

To make Resolume a bit more useful in your studio for creating content rather than live shows you can now render your clips to disk! Go crazy with sources, shapes, text, add as many effects you like and when you are happy with the result you can render it to a file and share it anywhere you like. Check it out. You’ll find it in the Clip menu: Render to File. Read all the instructions in the Clip Renderer support article.

Recording Improvements

You can now record straight to DXV 3 or ProRes and it will record at the frame rate set for the composition. All versions of DXV 3 and ProRes are supported so this means you can now preserve alpha in your recordings when you use DXV 3 Normal or High Quality with Alpha or ProRes4444. You’ll find these settings in the new Recording tab of the Preferences and we updated the Recording support article with instructions.

ProRes & Motion JPEG Conversion in Alley

Alley can now not only convert to the DXV 3 codec but thanks to a licensing deal with Apple, Alley can now also render to all flavours of ProRes on both macOS and Windows. And we also added good old Motion JPEG conversion.

Improved ProRes Playback

Playback of ProRes encoded video files is now much much faster so you can actually VJ in pristine image quality using ProRes.

New Effects: Pixel Blur & Bloom

The standard Blur effect in Resolume is built for speed but to do this it needs to sacrifice some image quality. Most of the time it’s good enough but sometimes you just want a pixel precise blur just like you have in Photoshop. Resolume now has a picture perfect blur and it’s called Pixel Blur. Check it out, it’s gorgeous but not as fast and the standard Blur so choose your weapons wisely.

To make a Bloom effect you need a pixel perfect blur and lo and behold, we have this now so we also created a Bloom effect, just because we can. No not just because we can but because it makes your footage look all nice and glowy on the outside, and that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

NDI Updated to version 4.5

NDI inside Resolume is updated to the latest version and we managed to fix a few minor bugs so streaming with NDI to OBS should be running nice and smooth.

New Interface Font – Noto Sans

Noto Sans is now used in the Resolume interface. This font supports more characters and has a more consistent look on Chinese and Japanese. The Noto Sans font is also included in the installer so we’re not dependent on what macOS or Windows ship with their operating systems anymore. Noto Sans is an open source font made by Google. Thank you Google, we love you, we hate you, we need you.

NDI is updated to version 4 which is faster and has improved image quality. NDI 16 bit streaming is not yet supported.

Improved FFGL Plugin Management
When you install an FFGL plugin you do not have to restart Resolume anymore to make sure it shows up in the interface. Now FFGL plugins will show up in Resolume instantly even when it’s already running. And when you open a composition that uses FFGL plugins that are not installed you’ll see a red warning to let you know they are missing. Install them and you’re good to go, no restart required.

Smoother SMPTE Playback
While working on the SMPTE above 24 hours in version 7.0.4 we saw some more room for improvement. So now video playback is a lot smoother when controlled by SMPTE.

NVIDIA Application Profile
We now install an NVIDIA application profile to make sure the driver settings are optimal for Avenue & Arena.

Swap Input Output Shape in the Advanced Output
Make the input shape of a slice the output shape and the output shape the input shape. Get it? Neither do we. But this is sometimes quite handy when you’re creating complex mappings with various virtual screens. Right-click a slice and you’ll find this option in the slice popup menu.

Resolume v7.0.4

Resolume 7.0.4 includes many bug fixes but also some minor new features. You can rename effects, remove a lot of columns in one go and each deck can now have it’s own number of columns so you do not end up with a lot of empty columns at the end of decks anymore. DMX shortcuts can now be limited to a certain range and SMPTE timecode goes to infinity and beyond!

Resolume  v7.0.3 & v6.1.4

19 September 2019

We’re in full-on maintenance mode here at Resolume HQ to make sure v7 becomes just as stable as v6 as soon as possible. Unfortunately, a new major release (like 6.0.0 and 7.0.0) usually comes with a few bugs because they contain a lot of new code and have not yet been road-tested as much. Please keep sending us your feedback and crash reports so we can fix them as soon as possible. This is our top priority right now.

Resolume 7.0.3

Resolume 7.0.3 fixes a lot of bugs and some crashes that were occurring, especially when switching decks. Denon StageLinQ network connection is now much more robust and compatible with the Prime 4. This version is compatible with FFGL 2.1 plugins which has a few improvements so plugins can be made more user-friendly. All our macOS installers are now notarized by Apple to ensure a smooth installation on macOS 10.15 Catalina.

FFGL 2.1 in Resolume 7.0.3
We’ve made some improvements to the FFGL plugin SDK so plugin developers can make their effects more user friendly. Full details and sample code are on GitHub. https://github.com/resolume/ffgl
+ Added support for embedding a thumbnail inside the plugin. See the “CustomThumbnail” example on how to expose your thumbnail.
+ Added support for File parameters. The plugin can create a file param and specify what extensions it supports, the host then has enough information to show a file chooser dialog with active extension filtering.
+ Added support for toggling parameter visibility.
+ Added support for parameter visibility events. (A plugin can now toggle visibility of a parameter on the fly)
+ Reintroduction of Scoped bindings. (Removed unsafe resetOpenGLState function, use the ScopedBinding classes instead)
+ The Module Definition File is no longer required on Windows.
+ The SDK no longer adjusts any textures to use GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER.
+ Renamed CFreeFrameGLPlugin class to CFFGLPlugin. Plugins now need to inherit from the CFFGLPlugin class.
+ Fixed param value being normalized when ranges are involved. Values going between host and plugins are now the actual values, not the phase within that parameter’s range.
+ Fixed some internal SDK warnings, convoluted implementations and inconsistencies in namings. (Most notably the quickstart module now uses the same conventions as the ffgl and ffglex modules)

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.


  • #11629 (closed) Make multiply mixer transparency aware
  • #11598 (closed) DMA Textures crashes with HAP q alpha
  • #11405 (closed) Crash loading certain TIFF files

A special note to people on OSX Mavericks: in some cases, Resolume’s performance would drop when the menu bar on the second screen was disabled via ‘Displays have separate Spaces’ in the Mission Control system settings.

Resolume 4.1.9 covers the menu bar automatically when you go fullscreen. So we recommend enabling ‘Displays have separate Spaces’ again in the System Preferences of your Mac.

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
  • File relocating on PC
  • Repeatedly triggering a clip with the enter key and receiving midi causes a freeze
  • Having a slash in comp name doesn’t save
  • Piano mode for beatloopr doesn’t really work intuitively
  • Double clicking a comp file in Finder/Explorer still opens the last loaded comp
  • Soft-edge with 3 or more overlaps is broken
  • MIDI is acting weird again ( sigh )
  • Matrox capture source crashes arena
  • Windows SHIFT lock SHIT
  • Video card engine couldn’t start when Wait for Vertical Refresh & OpenGL Triple Buffering is On
  • There’s no place like, Dorothy
