Séance v3.0.1906 - Public Beta 3
Posted by Robert Monaghan on 09 May 2017 09:47 PM

You can download Séance v3.0.1906 Public Beta 3 from this page.

Séance3 Beta 2

This update provides a large number of fixes & improvements over Public Beta 1.


This version requires a Macintosh with macOS 10.11.6
The software also requires a "Full / Retail" Séance license with currently active support.

(At this time, there is no plan to release Séance v3.0 for Flex4K Bundle users.
Instead, there is a Séance Flex4K v2.1 release. Please contact us for further details.)

A supported GPU is required, too. This means any ATI/AMD or Nvidia GPU.
At this time, Intel Graphics (Iris, etc.) is not supported.

For 10GB Ethernet support, be sure to have a compatible device.

This version only supports the following cameras/devices:

- Cinestation
- Cinestation IV

- Phantom Flex
- Phantom Flex4K

- Miro LAB320S - No CineFlash support yet (Other Miro "M/LC" models might work.)

- NEW Phantom VEO 640S - No CineFlash support yet (Other VEO Models should work, too.)

I hope to add support for assorted V-Series cameras, older Phantom HD/65 Gold, etc.
(Let me know what you are using!)

This is the second public release!
There will be bugs! Parts of the software are not fully tested!
KEEP THIS IN MIND if you plan to use this on a project.

Séance v2.0.x will continue to work with your license. You can run the package if you find Séance v3 is not working for you.


Email me, with anything you find. Without bug reports, I can't fix things. :)

Séance v3.0 still is missing a number of features. But as you play with the package, you will find that it does a number of basic things.
You should be able to operate your camera. If you are only using this with the Cinestation or Cinestation IV, you will find that it works in a very similar way to Séance v2.1/v2.0.

Séance in general:
- Many controls are still to be implemented, Automatic modes (auto record, auto save, etc.) are to be completed.
- Color controls such as Matrix selection/settings, Canon Lens control, etc. do not exist. "Saved/stored" Resolutions are not working.
- Several convenience features (Cut & Paste Color settings and Black Balance assistant, etc.) are in the works.
- New features, such as a "Live Preview" throttle, is available for Laptop users.

Flex4K/Cinestation IV
- ProRes that has been saved onto a Cinemag, can now be viewed and downloaded.
- Live Preview works in all modes, including during capture.
- Support for Video play-out on the HD-SDI ports of the Flex4K now works. But still has issues. More improvements to come.
- Changes to settings performed on the camera will be updated instantly in Séance. But some controls will have issues. Changing the resolution on the camera, can crash Séance.

- Changing the resolution of the image on the camera, can cause Séance to hang.

Miro M320S (Lab)
- Cineflash is not supported at this time. Expect this before long.
- Like the Flex/Flex4K - Changing settings will mostly work. But Changing resolution can hang Séance.

VEO 640S
- Cineflash is not supported at this time. Expect this before long.
- Like the Flex/Flex4K - Changing settings will mostly work. But Changing resolution can hang Séance.
