After a few weeks of beta, Serato are ready to unleash their next iteration of their Serato Video plug-in. It has a decent scoop of new features as well as the necessary sprinkling of bug fixes. And of course for registered users is as ever free.
Serato say it so much better than I do:
Serato Video 1.1
Serato Video 1.1, the first update for Serato Video users, includes some great new features including; Delay Compensation, a dedicated Video View, Auto/Random Transitions and the Media Crate.
Use Delay Compensation to shift the video stream forward or backwards independently of the audio. This can be used to compensate for front of house issues with audio and video streams being out of sync.
A dedicated GUI view in Scratch Live or ITCH for video mixing has been added in this update. This automatically positions the Serato Video Preview screens alongside the virtual decks, and the Mix Preview within the waveform display to give you more space for your library, SP-6 Sample Player or FX.
With Auto/Random Transitions, you can automatically load a different transition effect on track load. These can be either selected in sequence or randomly and is a great way of keeping your video sets interesting and varied.
One of the most exciting new features is the Media Crate. This is a special crate, where you are able to hold a library of video files to be automatically loaded to any track without an associated video file.
Alongside these great new features and enhancements to Serato Video there has been a large number of bug fixes and improvements which are listed in full within the Serato Video 1.1 release notes.
Note: Windows computers using Intel graphics cards are not supported by Serato Video.
