DEX 3.2

DEC 30th, 2014

– Video mix recording (Beta)
– Windows: Changed the graphics rendering system to DirectX 11 (Much better performance)
– Optimizations to allow for up to one million tracks in the database and the search cache (works on any Mac; 64-bit Windows with 4GB of RAM or more is recommended)
– Searching improved
– Fixed bug: reading tags/album artwork from files/folders with non-standard Latin characters (accents, etc)
Please note that this will work only for new files — the files already added to the database can’t be updated (We plan to offer this in 3.3)
(the only solution/work-around right now is to manually edit the database.xml file and manually remove those badly scanned files and then to re-add them in the software)
– Added 2 simple video fx/filters: Black & White, Sepia
– Fixed crash on Mac when switching between Audio/Video skins
– Updated SkinDesigner with new attributes for playlist and wheel controls

* You can: change columns order, hide/show columns, re-size columns, lock sorting or re-sizing, sort by clicking on the columns (and revert the sorting by clicking on the “No.” column header)

– Added daytime skins (and also modified master VU-meter color for the original skins)
– Added compatibility with iTunes 12
– Tags support greatly improved for both reading and writing (you can now edit tags for: mp3, m4a, mp4, wav, aif, flac, ogg, wma; note that most video files (except for mp4) don’t support tags so no tag editing is possible on mov, mkv, cdg-zip, au, etc)
– Changed functionality: you can also scroll the lists by dragging them from the right side (very useful for touch-screen users); drag-&-drop still works if you drag a track from the left side; (left 75% drag&drop / right 25% scroll)
– Improved controller engine on MacOSX
– Loaded tracks are “greyed out” (session only)
– Search improvements (includes fixing a search cache issue)
