VenueMagic 3.5 Launches

Posted by vmadmin on November 20, 2020 in Uncategorized

The much-awaited release of VenueMagic 3.5 is here!

The most powerful and comprehensive show control software in the world just got better. For over 10 years, VenueMagic’s unique graphical timeline-based approach to show control has set the standard for sophistication and ease-of-use in the show control world.  Now VenueMagic takes another leap forward with some exciting new features.

VenueMagic Screens – VenueMagic now includes a full-featured graphical user interface development tool. Create your own operator control panels by dragging and dropping buttons, sliders, lamps, numerical displays, images and more.  Great for theater/live performances, haunted attractions, escape rooms and many other venues.  VenueMagic Screens is available in VenueMagic SC+ and SC2+ Editions.

Custom User Interface
Custom Escape Room Puzzle

ASIO Audio Interface – VenueMagic now supports audio hardware that use ASIO.  This includes a wide variety of pro-audio interfaces such as Dante®, MOTU®, Allen & Heath® and others.  Tested to over 200 tracks of up to 24-bit audio spread across 64 channels (via Dante Virtual Soundcard) for certain applications.  ASIO is available in VenueMagic AV, DMX2+AV, VenueMagic Professional SC+ and SC2+ editions.

MOTU 24ao

New Animatronics Features –VenueMagic already gives you animatronics programming features that are second to none.  We’ve just added a few more features to push the envelope even further. 

Complex Coordinated Movements – Now you can control multiple animatronics movements in a coordinated fashion using a single input. For example, suppose you have a sophisticated animatronics head that requires the coordination of several channels to produce a smile.  You can use VenueMagic’s graphical editor to program the smile movement and then assign that movement to a slider, or other input device.  Move the slider and all of the channels work together to form the smile. This feature is available in VenueMagic SC+ and SC2+ editions.

More Precise Channel Calibration – The improved Fixture Calibration window gives you more precise control for setting min and max ranges of movement, scaling and acceleration limits.  The Fixture Calibration window is available in VenueMagic Classic and above.

Well after a long development process and over 6 months of Beta testing and bug fixing we are please to announce that VenueMagic V3 has officially launched!

The new version is a major step forward in the history of VenueMagic Show Control Software and along with a new professional, modern look and feel a number of features have been added and existing features upgraded to continue to improve the industry standard show control software in the haunt and theme attractions industry.

As with any new major software update in the software industry there has been an increase in purchase price across all versions of VenueMagic V3 except VenueMagic Lite (express V3) which sees a new competitive entry level price of just £45. BUT! don’t be fooled by its new low price it still packs a punch offering 512 channels of DMX control, a standard fixture library and a user fixture library, access to more DMX devices and in the future will also be compatible with the VenueMagic Virtual DJ Plugin.

For current VenueMagic 2.6 users who have purchase VenueMagic before 1st January 2015 this will be a chargeable upgrade. Support will continue for version 2.6 for those not wanting to pay for the upgrade to V3 and those who purchased 2.6 licenses after 1st January 2015 will be grandfathered into this version at no additional charge.  To receive your free upgrade to V3 please email support @ venuemagic .co .uk with proof of purchase for your free upgrade code.

New features:

  • Timeline Page Tabs let you divide your timeline into multiple pages to make it easier to program timelines with a large number of tracks.  Pages can overlap so that the same tracks appear on different pages.  Play back one page at a time or all of them at once.
  •  Collapsible Tracks allow you to show individual timeline tracks at different heights, depending on the level of detail you wish to see.  When fully collapsed, a track shows a minimal amount of information, allowing more tracks to be displayed on the screen at once.
  • Group Tracks let you combine multiple timeline tracks into a single group track so that the tracks are only visible when the group is expanded.
  • Audio Mix-down provides the ability to mixdown all of the audio tracks in a timeline to a single audio file.  Includes auto-attenuation feature to prevent saturation and clipping.
  • Record DMX with Time code.  The DMX record feature no allows you to use and external time base while recording.  Includes SMPTE (over serial), ProCommander PHX (over UDP), ProCommander LTC (UDP) and MIDI time code.
  •  New VenueMagic Plug-in Framework allows more flexibility for interfacing with hardware such as slider consoles, timeline shuttle controls, etc…  Plug-ins also add “specialized” features to VenueMagic including automatic channel and timeline setup.  Plug-ins will be announced as they become available.
  • Enhanced DMX recording features and data capture improvements.
  • Stability and performance enhancements.
  • Control.ini external reference now available for all Weigl devices for advanced scripting via the Weigl ASCII protocol.
