As most of you know, we have been working on GrandVJ 2 these last few months and we are approaching the release. So here’s a little recap so that you know where we’re going to.
Two versions of GrandVJ:
Next to GrandVJ, we will introduce GrandVJ XT that will have the Video Mapper support:
- GrandVJ 2 : (299 eur / without Video Mapper)
We have decided to offer free upgrade from GrandVJ 1.x to GrandVJ 2 to all users so everyone can benefit from the much requested new software activation system (see further below).
- GrandVJ XT : (649 eur / with the Video Mapper)
For those who bought (or upgraded to) GrandVJ 2 and later want to do Video Mapping, don’t worry, you won’t have to buy a full GrandVJ XT license: you will just have to upgrade for the difference (349 eur).
For our GrandVJ 1 users that would like to use the Video Mapper immediately when released, we will have a one step upgrade to GrandVJ XT with a -10% as loyalty offer during the first month after the release.
Note: If you were considering purchasing GrandVJ but were waiting for the release of version 2, you shouldn’t. You can buy GrandVJ 1 now and benefit from the above upgrades when we release version 2.
Main new features in GrandVJ 2
New software activation system:
We have been listening to your feedback. We have completely reworked the software activation system to make it much more straightforward, flexible and user friendly (no more lengthy codes to copy/paste). Users will now be able to activate and use GrandVJ 2 on up to two computers at the same time with one license (i.e. main computer and backup), instead of one with the current license agreement. The activation/deactivation process requires that you connect your computer to the Internet.
We are developing a new interface to make the software even more user friendly and straightforward, while integrating the new functionalities into it.
Here’s a tease, just to keep you waiting (colors and some features may be subject to change, but you get the idea..):
Cells matrix now have an individual edit button which allows to give each cell unique properties.
It is shown here with multiple output groups for the Video Mapper: Layers can be sent to different output groups that you can define within the Video Mapper. Each group allows a separate transition within it. You can also set individual layers to keep various properties - such as mixing or position - as you play different visuals.
- New effects
- New transitions
- Performance improvements
- Video Mapper (in GrandVJ XT)
We’ll have it ready after the summer and, depending on the development cycles, we will release a public beta during the summer.
