2.1.0 Release Notes

Release date: xx/xx/xxxx

File Version Bump

Scenes created in Cavalry 2.0.3 will be converted when opening them in Cavalry 2.1.0. The file will be copied to a new scene which will need saving – you'll notice the legacy scene will be named <yourSceneName> [Converted].cv on opening. Any scenes saved in 2.1.0 onwards will not be fully compatible with any previous versions of Cavalry.

ProRes is currently a separate Format in a Render Queue Item but we plan to combine the ProRes codecs as an option under the QuickTime format in future versions.

Behaviours

  • The Sound Behaviour is now out of Experimental features and planned as a Starter feature.
    • Frequency Scale - Choose a model to sample the audio file's frequencies with.

UI

Enhancements

  •  
    beta2
    New Try Pro window. This can be accessed from the button in the Shelf and is intended to provide simple examples that use the Professional features. Note that Starter users will be switched into 'Restricted Mode' which prevents saving and rendering – deleting the Pro Layer(s) will restore saving and rendering.

  •  
    beta2
    The Timeline now displays a timecode ruler when the Frame Indicator is in that mode.
