Lightkey 2.4 adds a new blind mode, allowing you to make changes without affecting the DMX output, and the ability to freeze the DMX output and continue seamlessly. Other improvements concern cuelists and external control.
- The new blind mode lets you to make changes without affecting the DMX output. Cuelists, sequences, and effects continue to run while in blind mode.
- You can now freeze the DMX output, stopping cuelists, sequences, and effects. After unfreezing everything continues seamlessly.
- New +/− buttons make it easier to insert cues at specific points in a cuelist. There are also new keyboard shortcuts for adding and deleting cues and groups.
- Fading in cuelists has been improved: Fixture properties defined by only one of the fading cues now fade in/out towards their default value.
- When a cuelist is paused, any ongoing fades pause as well.
- The external control actions for (de-)activating presets, sequences, and cues can now be configured to always activate or always deactivate their object.
- The following cuelist control actions now provide MIDI feedback: Start/Stop, Pause/Resume, Next Cue.
- MIDI feedback is also provided for the Tap Beat action (flashes on beat).
- Previously no initial MIDI feedback messages were sent on startup for some actions. This has been fixed. Feedback is also sent when connecting a new MIDI device.
- Previously it was not possible to view and edit the details of external control triggers when the main window was in full-screen mode. This has been fixed.
- Preset Palette and cuelists: Inserting an item into a collapsed group now works as expected.
- Reordering live pages could sometimes lead to a crash. This no longer happens.
