We are happy to announce the new release for the ProtoPixel Create (OS X only) & ProtoPixel Node (2.9.0). With many powerful features and bug fixes.
If you have ProtoPixel Create already installed, it will automatically ask you to update to the new version. Otherwise, you can download it manually here for free.
If you are a happy owner of a ProtoPixel Node, follow the instructions on how to update it here.
Main new features
Tuneable white support
The future is white. And we want to provide control over white light in the present.
One of the most important things in lighting design is the quality of light. This is often associated to white light, in a range of color temperatures. We introduced some white color picking controls in the software to allow you to work in this space. See it in the Manager App:
This feature works with RGB fixtures, as well as with tuneable white fixtures.
Improved data streaming to WiFi controllers
ProtoPixel Create now takes advantage of the improved protocol switching for ProtoPixel WiFi Controller, allowing it to reach 682 RGB LEDs.
This allows you to test live the whole animation before recording and uploading it to the controller.
Unlimited pixels in ProtoPixel Create
Until version 2.8.0 ProtoPixel create had a hard limit of a total of 65k pixels. Version 2.9.0 removes this limit and it automatically scales with your project. The power and memory of your computer are the only limits.
REST API for Manager App
The Manager App has now a REST API that can be used to integrate it with other services.
See the specification here.
