WIRE-16454 – On Windows, smooth transitions between two shots that contain the same source is working again, after briefly trying to break free and take over the world.
WIRE-16445 – Main Shot Layers now remember their sizes when a saved document is reopened. A little Ginkgo Biloba did the trick.
WIRE-16442 – Also fixed was Wirecast’s ability to remember the Controller selected in Preferences.
WIRE-16440 – Recorded audio from Rendezvous guests was sometimes having dropouts or was garbled. Yo..cn ear..t.agn now.
WIRE-16479 – When an input format changes to a Magewell capture card, the audio will no longer stop working from that device.
WIRE-16432 – YouTube’s Create Event Menu now correctly shows the dark mode color scheme. Handy for when you actually want to see the text.
WIRE-16425 – Sources from BlackMagic capture cards that don’t support automatic format detection were not being found when upgrading to version 13. We found them and helped them get back to where they belong. They’re fine.
A little shaken, but basically fine.
WIRE-16240 – Sometimes certain areas of the app would appear in English when they shouldn’t. We’ve fixed that bit of linguistic imperialism.
WIRE-15656 – Fixed a crash when clicking the Output Menu when a BlackMagic Decklink 8K Pro capture card was installed.
WIRE-15461 – Now, when you use Desktop Presenter and check the capture audio box the playback should be clear without being choppy or skipping.
What’s New in 13.1 Wirecast Pro
WIRE-16617: Continuing our quest to improve performance, efficiency and to reduce code bloat, we’ve done some under-the-hood updates that will make way for MORE updates, but in the short term should improve specific display functionality and reduce CPU usage.
WIRE-16615: We now prevent icons from being rendered in the background unnecessarily, again with the aim of providing some performance improvement
WIRE-16612: Now you can do a “draft” or preview of your broadcast when streaming to LinkedIn Live.
WIRE-16557: Updated to NDI SDK 4.1- just keeping things current.
WIRE-16545: We now allow you to configure the Closed Captions settings for YouTube Events
WIRE-16516: Thanks to all who let us know how much they love to collapse the layers on the Main Shot Bin. We brought back that ability.
WIRE-16496: Updated Facebook API version to the latest release.
WIRE-16490/16489: Updated various UI buttons and images so that they scale better on Windows.
WIRE-16485: We widened the properties panel and did some general cleanup to make the whole properties panel area look more appealing.
WIRE-16483: We received a very good suggestion to update our audio icons to make them more obviously show when audio is muted. Now, instead of just changing color, the icon has a line through it to indicate when it’s muted.
WIRE-16469: More under-the-hood improvements – we updated the Wirecast audio code to use AudioQueue and WASAPI APIs. The only user-facing change in this phase is that audio from multiple open documents will now be mixed together rather than only playing the audio from the topmost document.
WIRE-16467: We updated some wording for our Failed to Activate License warning, and included a link to our license reset tool.
WIRE-16464: When running Wirecast on a Windows machine where a monitor has > 100% scale, the text and graphics are now crisp and clean.
WIRE-16184: Improved decompression of MJPEG video, which will improve performance for many webcams, 4K webcams, and USB3 capture devices that capture 4K video.
WIRE-15999/15994/15951: More clean up and updating – we’ve removed CEF from the inspector panel which improves drawing performance and reduces flicker in the UI.
WIRE-15714: We also updated our technology to improve the performance and quickness of adding NDI sources to a document.
WIRE-15651: We have greatly improved the ability to navigate within the UI using the tab key. There’s more to come, but you can now joyfully tab through the text entry fields.
