This is a big one! It seems the development gods have been kind to us as we managed to include quite a bit of new features in just over a month.
The ones we are most excited about are:
- NewTek NDI input and output: NDI is a new video streaming technology that is fast gaining ground. It allows you to stream video over the network with very low latency and overhead. If you don’t know it yet, you should definitely look at it.
- HAP codec playback: Hap encoded videos use an innovative approach to allow playback of video files with crazy big resolutions (think multiples of 4K). Lightact can play Hap, HapA and HapQ.
- Particle engine has been completely reworked. We’ve added exciting new features such as Curl noise, Fractal Brownian noise, Texture emitters and much more.
- A whole bunch of new texture processing and texture generator nodes. Real-time color grading, chroma key, halftone and many more.
There are lots of other improvements, most of which you can see in Changelog.
