ArKaos Releases GrandVJ 1.6.5
ArKaos has released GrandVJ 1.6.5, a new version of its famous real-time video mixer with features that bring out the VJ in everyone.
ArKaos GrandVJ 1.6.5 introduces Scratch Control support for DJ-style MIDI controllers with jog wheels, to bring DJs another step further into the VJ world. Two new slider widgets control the sensitivity of the scratch and the scratch itself.
ArKaos has added templates with feedback support for the new American Audio VMS4.1 and VMS2 MIDI controllers in a move designed to give a DJ-style feeling while mixing video with these controllers. It has also updated the mapping templates for the Hercules DJ Control series to take advantage of this new Scratch Control feature. GrandVJ 1.6.5 also adds mapping templates for the Livid OhmRGB, with feedback support and coloured keys, and for the Elation Midicon with feedback support.
Most excitingly, GrandVJ’s new Scratch Control support now makes it compatible with the NuVJ Video Controller from Numark, which was a much requested feature from NuVJ users.
For the next six months (until July 31, 2012), ArKaos will be offering a GrandVJ license at reduced price to all NuVJ users, giving them access to GrandVJ’s eight video layers, numerous effects, visual generators and all the other advanced features from their professional VJing software. Users can benefit from this special offer simply by entering their NuVJ software serial number on upgrade page of the ArKaos web site.
Other new features and improvements in GrandVJ 1.6.5 are the "Play Once and Freeze" forward and backwards mode and Mixer Pause mode selection giving a choice of ‘cut’ or ‘freeze’. A new playback widget in the visual parameter panel gives a new mapping target that enables control of the movie playback position using a Midi or OSC controller. There is also an option to prevent the display of mouse-over tool tips on the interface which makes life easier for those controlling GrandVJ from a touch screen.
