Pandoras Box Version 5.7
“Venue Sites” are used for visualising complete stage-, installation- and show-setups in real-time, using 3D models.
Media content can be pre-programmed per output and can then be routed to different 3D models this way.
What is special about “Venue Sites” is that instead of just offering a standard 3D mapping approach for pre-visualisation, one can now use a real-time compositing environment as a complete whole to simulate video projectors virtually, using a light projection approach.
Media content and content compositing can be used completely independent from the visualised 3D scenes.
The ability to seamlessly switch from one Venue Site to another makes comparing different design scenarios very easy and helps to save valuable time and costs.
Another important aspect of “Venue Sites” relates to being able to test and play around with the simulations of complex media installations. This way, one can for example train oneself to set up a spherical projection or a softedge projection without having to use real projectors in the process.
NEW TEXT INPUT
Pandoras Box users will also be delighted to discover that the upcoming version 5.7 will include a completely re-designed text editor.
Different font styles can now be used within a single text asset. An automatic horizontal and vertical scrolling capability is also part of this crucial tool’s latest development.
When working with the new text editor, one can even use and add an unlimited amount of text to a continuous text input.
ADVANCED AUDIO ROUTING
The latest Pandoras Box audio feature development makes it possible to input ASIO sound as well as HD-SDI embedded audio, opening up a whole new world of real-time media compositing.
Users can route, delay and record ASIO inputs. Sound data can be used on ASIO tracks and programmed to the timeline, including different delays for different output signal chains.
Audio inputs can now be arranged on any Pandoras Box timeline, or can alternatively be triggered via external commands.
In addition to these major features, a whole range of helpful improvements for a "Pixel-Oriented Workflow" were integrated as well, in order to reflect the Pandoras Box’s true pixel accuracy even more.
Version 5.7 is scheduled to be released shortly after this year's infoCOMM exhibition.
