WIRE-15060 – Main Shot Bin overhaul – We’ve done a complete refurbishment of our Main Shot Bin (that’s the layered area where you add all your shots.) We’re excited about a lot of under-the-hood improvements that reduced our code bloat, which you’ll have to trust us on. But what you will see is:
Greatly improved responsiveness when selecting and reordering shots, resizing windows and scrolling. It’s now smooth like buttah.
GPU accelerated live icons so you can see live previews of all your live shots, without hosing your system CPU.
Refreshed and decluttered user interface – like Feng Shui, but for software.
A bunch of other small but daring improvements like being able to reorder your master layers and more layer resizing options … oh, the power!
WIRE-16006 – Speaking of resizing layers: We’ve added a “Zoom Layers To' menu under 'Layout' so you can set all your master layers in one fell swoop. AND now you can resize all your layers at the same time by holding down the Shift or Alt (Win) or Shift, Option or Command (Mac) keys. PLUS! Extra added bonus: If you double click a layer divider, your layer will resize to its default height. Boom.
WIRE-12584 – You can now also drag & drop a shot by clicking anywhere in the shot, not just on the title.
WIRE-15939/WIRE-159940 – BlackMagic Designs and Direct Show source process separation – We have been working hard to improve the resiliency of Wirecast when dealing with sources. We have updated our code for sources, which for us makes it easier to maintain and support future source updates. You won’t see a lot of obvious changes yet in usability – but this helps us set the stage for future improvements.
WIRE-15590 – More efficiency – We're now allowing Blackmagic, DirectShow and Magewell sources to be more efficient – giving them access to GPU-accessible buffers for better performance.
WIRE-15588 – Added support for MJPEG video in DirectShow sources
WIRE-16368 – Stream to Facebook and other places simultaneously: Facebook recently changed their policy that allows you to stream to multiple destinations when also streaming to Facebook. We have enabled that in our application. So, stream away, anywhere!
WIRE-16394/WIRE-16261 – Facebook 1080p streaming: Now you can stream 1080p and up to 60fps to Facebook.
WIRE-15870 – Integrated Facebook Speed Test – New option in Facebook output settings "Optimize Connection" initiates a Facebook Speed Test to Facebook’s various regional ingestion servers to determine the best choice.
WIRE-16200 – And we now warn busy users that the Facebook Speed Test can take several minutes.
WIRE-14429 – PTZ control over NDI – This should allow all NDI PTZ cameras supporting movement controls over NDI to be fully usable in Wirecast. We have not tested every possible NDI PTZ device, but due to the standardization of NDI, all should work.
WIRE-15624 / WIRE-16114 – We also added support for PTZOptics PT12X-ZCam, for which we added a message in the PTZ Control Window that this device does not support pan/tilt controls. (It only zooms).
WIRE-16001 – MacOS Dark Mode – We’re going dark. Or at least you can choose to now.
WIRE-15989 – Larger user camera in Rendezvous – When entering the Rendezvous landing page (to enter the username), now the camera appears in the middle of the page so the user can see themselves more clearly than the small view in the top-right corner. Once the Rendezvous session starts, the camera jumps back to the top-right hand corner.
WIRE-15976 – LinkedIn Live Error Tracking – We improved the error tracking when streaming to LinkedIn Live.
WIRE-15968 – Preference Pane additions – We’ve added more options to the preference pane to give you even more decisions to make, including the look of your shot display, turning GPU Accelerated Live Icons to “Highest Framerate”, “Reduced Framerate” or “Disabled”, and other settings that give you ultimate omnipotence (at least within your own Wirecast document).
WIRE-15876 – Streamlined Buy link – Clicking on the 'Buy/Upgrade' item under 'Help' now opens the web store directly instead of taking you on a leisurely walk-about through another page or two. We’re saving you time.
WIRE-15933 – Warm and fuzzy analytics invite – We made our analytics opt-in pop-up warmer and fuzzier. We really hope you'll help us by opting in to analytics!
WIRE-16123 – You probably don’t care, but we've enlarged the Welcome Window to make room for in-app videos to play in that window.
WIRE-15922 – During the trial period, it is now easier for you to find and press a purchase button.Fixes
