SolidWorks 2014

download-wide

What’s New?

Environment Themes – Ok…I have to describe how this one was introduced. The first image was a screen that had virtually EVERY toolbar on the screen active, which of course doesn’t leave you much of a graphics area for your model. (I’ve actually seen people who setup SolidWorks like this over the years…not so much these days though.) Here’s a picture below:

History Folder – The History Folder is located at the top of the FeatureManager

Replace View Model – This new feature allows you to replace the reference for a given view or views inside a Drawing. Once you bring up the feature inside a Drawing, select the view or select the checkbox for all views and browse to replace the model. All of the dimensions and annotations are preserved.

Existing View Icons – When you access the View Pallette in Drawings, SolidWorks will display an indicator (icon) as to whether or not the view is already placed in the drawing.

Display Style Context Menu – Context menus for Drawing Views now contain a dropdown menu that will allow you to change the Display Style of that particular view. (For example, from Hidden Lines Removed to Shaded with Edges)

High Quality Shaded Views – With this setting, a shaded view in the drawing will not show and “bleed through edges” on thin surfaces

Angular Running Dimensions – Ordinate Style dimensions that can be utilized around circular parts. You can add dimensions at any time. (Similar functionality to Ordinate Dimensions.)

Split Table by Row Count – In SolidWorks 2014 you will be able to split a Bill of Materials in a Drawing by row count.  When you add components to an assembly, the setting is retained and the BOM will continue to split based on the number of rows you set.

Order Independent Transparency – This appears to be a new method of applying transparency to models so that overlapping faces in the transparency blend properly. The result is a much better (and more accurate looking) rendering of the transparency. This wasn’t talked about specifically, so I had to do a little web research to make sense of it. J

Sunlight and Sunlight Animations – Sunlight is a new lighting option in the Appearances tab. It allows you to enter your location, date, and time of day to get the accurate sunlight settings. (Wow…I was surprised it goes to that much detail!) You can also you PhotoView 360 to animate the changes in sunlight position.

Network Rendering Animations – You can now use Network Rendering (which was introduced in SolidWorks 2013 for still images) in rendering animations.

CircuitWorks Thermal Properties – CircuitWorks now supports Thermal Properties such as Specific Heat & Thermal Conductivity. The properties can be imported from ECAD files or manually entered.

Link to SolidWorks Flow Simulation – SolidWorks Flow Simulation can use the above mentioned thermal properties established in CircuitWorks to runs simulations. This can reduce the amount of data input when setting up thermal studies in Flow Simulation. You have the ability to choose which CircuitWorks properties to use and which ones to ignore.

Virtual DJ 8

download-wide

This version is a significant milestone in the history of VirtualDJ. Unlike the transition to v7 from v6, or to v6 from v5 etc, where we just added new significant features (like video support, 99 decks, ContentUnlimited, etc), for the v8 transition, we rewrote our software from the ground up. VirtualDJ was first started in 1996, and in the following 15 years, we kept adding more and more features, to keep pushing the limit of how technology can help you mix better. But, 15 years of layers upon layers of new cod

SANDBOX

One new exclusive feature of VirtualDJ 8, is the new “sandbox” concept. Sandbox is a feature that helps you prepare your next mix while the audience is still listening to the previous song. When sandbox is engaged, you can jump to the end of the current track, and try to mix into the next track, hearing it only in your headphones, until you find the perfect exit-point and entry-point where you’ll want to mix. You can then disengage sandbox, and calmly wait for your current track to reach the point where you’re now confident you should start your mix.

SAMPLER

The new sampler in v8 has shed all the limitations of the old v7 sampler. It can now play an unlimited number of samples simultaneously. Samples can be audio, video, or still images. Video samples can have alpha transparency. Samples can be organized by group and triggered like an instrument bank. Slots can be arranged on a grid, and have colors and icons.

The sampler is now accessed through the sideView, where you can select any bank and drag’n’drop samples directly onto the slots. The sample files themselves are found in the sampler folder in the browser. Note that you can also play any sample directly from the sampler folder, meaning that you could play as many samples as you want simultaneously, and you don’t “have” to use the grid if you’re more comfortable triggering samples from the list. The sampler also has a special bank called “remix mode”, which transforms your sampler into smart cue-pads. VirtualDJ will automatically detect and fill the remix points with the breaks in your song, but you can edit your own remix points of course.

When you record a new sample, using either the rec button on the advanced loop panel, or the mic or master rec button on the master mixer panel, VirtualDJ will store the newly created sample in the “Recordings” folder, and highlight it, so you can choose whether you want to drop it on a deck and start scratching it (if you just recorded your voice through the mic for example), or drop it on a sampler pad. And of course you can edit any sample with the sample editor.

SOUND ENGINE

In VirtualDJ 8, all the internal audio components, like pitch-stretching, limiter, equalizers, filters, etc, have been rewritten to harness all the power of modern computers and give you a crystal-clear sound.

The internal sound engine processes everything in high-quality 32-bit audio, but the internal sampleRate can be adjusted in the options. Note that we recommend using 44100 if you play mostly audio files that have been recorded at 44100 (like mp3 files), or 48000 if you play mostly high-def videos that have their audio track at 48000. Setting a higher samplerRate than the files you play will result in a lower quality of sound, not a higher one.

BROWSER

The browser in VirtualDJ 8 as many improvments in comparison to v7 version.

SIDE VIEW:The browser now has three zones: the folders, the file view, and the “side view”. The side view can display and easily switch between various useful folders or special lists. Among the special lists are the automix list, the karaoke list, a scratch-pad called “side list” (you can still also have the old horizontal side-list if you’re nostalgic, it’s in the advanced options), and the sampler trigger-pad. But you can also drag and drop any folder to the sideview to stick it there. You can even create shortcut buttons for various folders, so you can easily navigate between them with one click.

VIRTUAL FOLDERS:Virtual/favorite/filter folders in version 8 can now be children of any other folder. For example, you could have your folder D:\Music\Rock, and inside, create a virtual folder “Top” where you put links to the top songs. You can also make filter folders children of other folders, and the filter will be applied to the content of the parent folder.

FILTER GROUPS:The filter folders can now have a filter such as “group by genre” for example. This would create a filter folder that has as children folders all the available genres (from the database if this folder is at the root, or from the parent folder otherwise).

EFFECTS

The effect page is now no longer a “replacement” of the browser, but is instead a panel, same as the playlist. effects config window will open small windows inside this panel. These effect config can also be undocked and become floating windows that can be moved around. Effect selection is now done through the effect button on the skin on each deck. The effect list window can also be unpinned, in order to become a floating window that can allow easy instant access to several effects. To access the config window of an effect, hover your mouse on the effect in the list, and click on the small gear icon.

Also, note that in version 8, effects can now be applied either to a specific deck, or to the master output. Go to the “master” panel in the center window to select master effects.

EDITORS

Another big novelty in VirtualDJ 8, is the plethora of built-in editors.

AUTOMIX EDITOR:The AutoMix editor allows you to pre-edit your automix sequence, in order to fine-tune the mix-in and mix-out points, the type of transition, and if you’re mixing videos, select the video transition to be used for each mix. When you manually tune the mix between two songs, VirtualDJ will remember and use your preferred settings the next time the automix engine mixes these exact two songs together.

TRACK CLEANER:This editor lets you easily create “edits” of your tracks. You can remove any offensive lyrics by “inverting” them, you can cut out long intros or irrelevant speech, or loop a section to extend your track.

VIDEO EDITOR:The video editor has 2 main uses: It can be used to edit an existing video, by adding some text effects on the parts that you usually scratch, or on relevant lyrics. Or, it can be used to add a full new video track to an existing audio-only song, using video parts from other video files. It can also be used to create a video track for a remixed version by using parts from the video track of the original version.

SAMPLE EDITOR:To harness the power of the new sampler in version 8, the sample editor lets you adjust most of the options on your audio, video, or still-image samples. Your samples can now be audio, video or both (or still images), and you can easily adjust the transparency of video samples, crop the audio clips, and create sample groups with specific trigger modes.

POI EDITOR:All the cue points, saved loops, automix points, beatgrid anchors, macro points, etc…, are now called POI (for Point Of Interest) in VirtualDJ 8. The POI editor lets you organize and manage all these points for each of your tracks.

BPM EDITOR:The new BPM editor let you easily and conveniently adjust the beatgrid of your songs. It can even let you specify a different bpm for different parts inside the same song.

TAG EDITOR:The tag editor has been much improved in version 8 compared to the one from version 7. It can batch edit a lot of tracks together, can save the tags back to the files, and is compatible with a broad range of file formats and tags.

OTHER

OPTIONS:

Most common options are easily accessible from the option page in the config window, but if you check “show advanced” you will see the full list of all possible options. (no need for Registry Tweaks anymore).

AUDIO CONFIG:

The new audio config panel is now an a hybrid between the “simple” and “advanced” panels from VirtualDJ 7. The big buttons let you quickly access most common configurations, while the list below let you see how the configuration is actually implemented, and tweak it if need be.

CONTROLLERS:

Controllers can now have multiple mappers created, and you can easily switch between one or the other. By default, all controllers have the “factory default” mapper. As soon as you try to edit this factory default mapping, VirtualDJ 8 will create a “custom mapper” for this controller, fill it with a copy of the factory default, and save it in the Mapper/ folder like usual. You will then be editing the custom mapper.

CUSTOM BUTTONS:

The default skin has on each deck a set of empty “custom buttons”, and “custom knobs”. These empty buttons are intended to be filled up by each user according to what they find missing in the default skin.

SKIN RESIZE:

In VirtualDJ 8, the skins are automatically stretched, without any performance hit, so there is no reason to keep making many resolutions of the same skin. The stretch is done in such a way that the aspect ratio is kept (so that round turntables will stay round). To achieve that, the browser part is automatically made bigger/smaller.

CURRENT CUE:

There is a special POI, the current CUE, that is not editable from the editor. This special CUE is the position used by the STOP and CUE buttons, and will be remembered from one session to the next. But it’s overwritten automatically each time you select a new hotcue or POI.

COLOR WAVEFORMS:

VirtualDJ 8 has two modes for the color waveforms (accessible in the options). Either a full-color with red for bass, green for mediums and blue for high, or a 2-color mode which makes it easier to differentiate each deck, but still easily see the bass, medium and high.

BROADCAST:

VirtualDJ 8 direct broadcasting now requires that you are logged in to our website, but rather than providing an IP address for others to connect to, it automatically generates a webpage on virtualdj.com where your friend can listen to your broadcast. This page will have an embedded html5 player and links for itunes/winamp/wmp etc streaming. VirtualDJ 8 also offers to create and maintain podcasts for you, with tools on website to help you publish your mix to itunes etc.

Unparalleled video editing power
Hundreds of thoughtful, innovative features make Vegas Pro one of the most fluid and intuitive editing platforms on the market. When you move events on the timeline, visual alignment confirmation and user-definable snapping tools ensure that your media lands exactly where you need it with frame accuracy, and even sub-frame accuracy for audio. Automatically move or slip audio or video inside an event to synchronize media quickly and accurately. Insert audio or video envelopes to interactively control stereo or surround-sound panning and volume, video event velocity, and video track opacity. And that’s just the beginning of what you can do.

Expanded edit mode

Double-click at the edit point to see the timeline in a detailed A-B Roll view. The adjacent frames of the events at the edit point appear clearly above the tracks for reference, and unused media in the events appears in the timeline. With the edit point/event edge highlighted in red, you can trim it with the mouse or numeric keypad. Set a Loop Region around the edit point to dynamically add or remove frames from either side of the edit point while the media plays to create a highly precise, interactive editing experience.

Expanded edit mode

4K support

Vegas Pro natively supports frame sizes up to 4096 x 4096. The 4K image standard for digital cinema projection is 4096 x 2160 pixels. This level of resolution provides more detail and flexibility to pan and crop when delivering in HD. It’s ideal for compositing and video effects work as it provides a high-qualityfinal output. Vegas Pro natively supports XAVC and XAVC S files as well as RED ONE® and RED EPIC® files.

GPU acceleration

GPU acceleration

Better playback, faster renders. Take advantage of the power of the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) found in many of today’s most popular video display cards for smoother video playback and faster rendering. Vegas Pro 13 leverages the GPU for video effects, transitions, compositing, pan/crop, track motion, and encoding. An optimized hardware configuration that uses an appropriate GPU device dramatically improves timeline performance. Enjoy higher resolution previews with multiple effects in Vegas Pro 13, and crank encoding speeds up by as much as six times over previous versions to popular formats like AVC. Vegas Pro 13 uses OpenCL™-supported devices from AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel to unleash your creative vision.

Multi-format native editing

Vegas Pro takes a no transcode, no rewrap approach with Panasonic P2 AVC-Intra and DVCPRO source material. Vegas Pro eliminates the transcode and rewrap process that other applications require, so editors can save valuable production time, minimize storage requirements, and preserve the pristine quality of the original source material. Other natively supported codecs and formats include XAVC, XAVC S, XDCAM™, XDCAM EX, NXCAM, HDCAM-SR™, AVCCAM, RED® R3D, AVCHD, and AVC-based MOV files from popular DSLR cameras. For 3D content creation, Vegas Pro also supports stereoscopic 3D MVC and MPO files from Sony camcorders.

Serato DJ 1.6.1

download-wide

Two exciting new features that Serato DJ 1.6.1 brings are the ability to open multiple performance panels at once and being able to select the location for your recordings. Keep reading for a run through on how these features work, and how they could help you.

 

Multiple Panels

Serato DJ 1.6.1 allows you to have multiple performance panels open at once. This means you can now control multiple features such as FX, SP-6 and Serato Video without having to switch panels, making it easier to see what you are controlling.

When selecting panels with the mouse they will stack, however if you are using a controller with a panel select button, panels will toggle the same way you were familiar with before, without compromising library space.

Here are some examples of how you can use multiple panels.

FX and SP-6

Video + FX

All Panels

You can even have all panels open if you like. This will cause the Virtual decks to go into the smaller ‘Library’ view giving enough room for everything if your screen resolution can’t support larger virtual decks.

Recording Location

This feature allows you to choose where you save your Serato DJ recordings instead of directly inside the Music > _Serato_ > Recording folder.

Follow these steps to select your record location:

1. Select “Mix” to choose the mix to be recorded.

2. Click Record Location

3. Select the Location you would like to save the mix.

Anime Studio Pro 10

download-wide

Anime Studio Pro is perfect for professionals looking for a more efficient alternative to tedious frame-by-frame animation. The intuitive and affordable feature set offers a solution to traditional animation tasks that are not available anywhere else at the same price point. With an intuitive interface, a visual content library and powerful features such as a bone rigging system, bitmap to vector conversion, integrated lip-synching, 3D modeling, physics, motion tracking, a character wizard and more, Anime Studio Pro delivers advanced animation tools to speed up your workflow.

Bone Rigging

Bone-rigging is a fast and efficient alternative to tedious frame-by-frame animation. Add a skeleton to any image by pointing and clicking to create bones that overlay the parts of your image, to control arms or legs for example.

Revolutionary Smart Bones

Smart Bones is an incredible feature that reduces or entirely removes distortion around your character’s joints – specifically around knees and elbows. Group a set of points and use the Smart Bones control levers to create 3D looking motion that you can easily repeat with the turn of a dial. For example with Smart Bones you can control facial expressions and head-turning on a character with simple dial movements instead of having to touch each bone point.

Import Photoshop Files

Import your existing Photoshop files with all layers intact. Changes made in Photoshop instantly appear in the imported file in Anime Studio, allowing you to continually refine your Photoshop document.

Real Time Media Connection

The new Real Time Media Connection in Anime Studio Pro automatically updates image, movie and audio files in your imported Anime Studio files when edited in an external program.

Editable Motion Graphs

In Motion Graphs, the animation channels of the current layer are displayed graphically, rather than just as points along a line. Now get maximum control of your animation with Editable Motion Graphs.

Audio Recording, Sound Effects and Automatic Lip Synching

Add a soundtrack and lip-synching to your animations! Record your own sound clips inside Anime Studio and adjust the pitch from high-to-low to fit your animated characters or import existing audio files into your project. Built-in lip-syncing in Anime Studio is a huge timesaver.

Flexible Import and HD Export Capabilities

Anime Studio can import several kinds of other media files into an animation project. Import QuickTime, AVI or MPEG-4 video or even 3D scenes from Poser. Image Based Modeling allows you to create 3D objects from 2D vector layers.

Wacom Multi-Touch Support

Wacom Multi-Touch support allows you to use Wacom’s new generation touch tablets with Anime Studio. Easily edit characters, scale, rotate, pan, zoom in and out of the canvas with simple finger gestures. Available on Bamboo, Intuos and Cintiq touch based tablets.

NEW! Bone Constraints

Several major enhancements have been made to Anime Studio’s bone features. The new bone constraints feature will include rigging options that will help set up characters that are more complex and powerful. The independent angle constraint allows a bone to maintain its global angle similar to a camera crane and is not affected by inverse kinematics or its bone parents. The squash and stretch bone scaling enhancement allows bones to squash and stretch objects. New target bones help bones point in the right direction rather than having the need to consistently set angles.

NEW! Enhanced Smart Bone Setup

Setting up a Smart Bone Dial is now easier. Options include Maximum Angle, Minimum Angle, Duration and Name. Once you apply this, your bone name and label will be set, along with your lifetime frames for the action. All there’s left for you to do is start creating!

NEW! Bounce, Elastic and Stagger Interpolation

By applying the Bounce keyframe type to the timeline, any object interpolated will appear to bounce, all within two keyframes. Elastic provides a rubber band effect, making objects spring back and forth before reaching their end point. Stagger creates the effect that the animation is stuttering or staggering between two keyframes.

NEW! Updated Drawing Tools

New tools mean more ways to create and achieve awesome results. The Paint Bucket Tool has been enhanced. The new Blob Brush Tool allows you to easily create shapes by freehand drawing anything you desire. The Eraser Tool, a much requested addition to the software, is like the Blob Brush Tool, except now whichever area you paint over will see a removal or shift in points.

NEW! Separate Render Process

NEW in Anime Studio Pro 10 – The Batch Exporter and Renderer are now performed as a separate process. Even if you quit from Anime Studio Pro, the render process continues until the job is completed.

NEW! Multiple Document Support

Anime Studio now allows you to open more than one document at a time, and switch from one to another in a tabbed interface.

NEW! Keyboard Shortcut Editor

Create and save your own keyboard shortcut configurations.

NEW! GPU Acceleration

GPU Acceleration takes advantage of your computer’s hardware, boosting performance and quality for several layer types while allowing you to see exactly what the tool is doing as you apply a stroke or shape to the Workspace.

NEW! Content Library Update

The Content Library has been completely updated with new content. The new content has been created by professional animators and is an awesome guide for those wanting to learn firsthand how pros create their characters, bone rigs and scenes in Anime Studio.

System Requirements

Windows:
  • Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or newer
  • 1.3 GHz Pentium 4 or newer, Athlon 64 or newer
  • 2 GB RAM recommended
  • 1.6 GB (Universal) or 800 MB (32-bit) free hard disk space minimum
