Light-O-Rama version 4.3.26 released

Recommended Posts

Today we released version 4.3.26 of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite.  This is an official production release, not a beta release.  This release fixes some issues in the SuperStar Editor and adds support for PixCon16 MkII boards.

How to check if your license covers this version

To check whether or not your license covers this version, please go to the license retrieval page, and enter your email address (the one you purchased your license with). An email should then be sent to you with information about your license. The "Summary" section of the email will tell you whether or not your license covers the latest version.

If the email says...

  • Your license covers the latest version, 4.3.*.

... then your license already covers this version.  You can use it without making any additional purchase.  Please note, though, that your computer may not yet understand that your license covers this version, so when you install, it might tell you that you are running in Demo mode.  In this case, simply reactivate your license (for example, via "Upgrade Light-O-Rama" on the Sequence Editor's "Help" menu), and your computer will then learn that your license is valid for this version.

On the other hand, if the email instead says...

  • Your license does not cover the latest version, 4.3.*.

... then your license does not cover this version.  In that case, you have several options:

 

Upgrading or Renewing Your License

(1) You can continue using whatever version your license does cover (for example, perhaps your license covers version 4.1).

(2) If you want to take this opportunity to increase your license level to take advantage of additional features, you can purchase a license level upgrade.  This counts as a license renewal too - that is, your license will now work with this new version (and some future versions too).  So, if you do this, there is no reason to also purchase a license renewal.

(3) If you already own a Light-O-Rama license, but you do not currently own Light-O-Rama SuperStar, or if you want to upgrade SuperStar to a higher number of CCRs/channels, you could purchase or upgrade SuperStar.  This also counts as a license renewal for the rest of the Light-O-Rama software suite, so if you do this, there is no reason to also purchase a license renewal.  Please note that you must already own a license for the rest of the Light-O-Rama software suite in order to take this option.

(4) If you do not want to purchase a license level upgrade or Light-O-Rama SuperStar, you can purchase a license renewal.  Your license will now work with the new version (and some future versions too), at the same license level as it currently does.  For example, if you have an Advanced license, it will remain an Advanced license, but it will now cover the new version of software.

 

What's New in Version 4.3.26

This release addresses several issues in the SuperStar Editor:

  • Fixed a bug where if you do a "move or scale selected group" then immediately do a "group modify move" and it moves everything to the location of the first selection. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed a bug where if a scene has pixels that have been moved to the left of the visible sequencing grid it could cause the program to hang when playing the sequence or exporting to sequence editor
  • Added the button "Set Grid Bitmap and Add Image" to the image dialog box
  • Increased the maximum number of Intensity data files that you can merge from 10 to 15
  • Images with a preRamp or postRamp in wrapAround mode could cause superstar to crash when played or exported to sequence editor.
  • Group Modify of Text preRampLength, PostRampLength, FadeToBright, FadeFromBright, and clipRectangle, were not working. 
  • Changed it so if you do "Select All", "Select All Right", or "Select All Left" and you are not in a group, then it selects things in all groups in addition to things that are not in a group.
  • Fixed a bug where if you have a sequence with star effects and you import a visualization without a star and it removes the star effects, it removed the star effects but it did not update the Scene dialog box, so the effects still showed up in the dialog box.
 
This release also adds support for PixCon16 MkII boards to LORNetworkPreferences.
