Phantom VEO4K and Séance v3.0
Posted by Robert Monaghan on 06 October 2017 08:08 PM
Hi Everyone,

I have received a large number of requests for VEO 4K support with Séance v3.0.
At the moment, most VEO models are not supported by Séance. I hope to change this in a future update. I can't give a time frame at the moment. But when I have something, I will post information here as well as on the Glue Tools support webpage.

Séance (and Séance Lite) v3.0.1912 Updated
Posted by Robert Monaghan on 10 August 2017 04:29 AM
The Séance v3.0.1912 update addresses some bugs that people have reported. (Thanks!)
Séance v3.0's latest "new feature" is Black Reference Assist. When enabled, Séance will warn you to perform a Black References on your Camera, if certain settings are changed. This feature is intended to make sure that you always get the best looking image, as often as possible.

This version also fixes some Preview issues with MacOSX 10.11.6.
Fixes have been performed on Preferences, Background Transcoding, amongst others.
Documentation has also been updated, as well.

Give it a try! You can download a copy here.

Séance (Séance Lite) v3.0.1911 has been posted.
Posted by Robert Monaghan on 26 July 2017 03:20 AM
Séance v3.0.1911 has just been updated.

Bugfixes include:
- 10Gb downloads from the Cinemag have been fixed. (This worked with 1Gb connections.)
- Assorted UI fixes
- Fixed ProRes downloads from the Cinemag.

New Feature:
- Checksums!
You can now enable a background checksum task, from Séance->Preferences menu.
Click on the "File Settings" tab, and click on "Generate Checksum".

When you set up a "Reelname", your files will have a checksum generated, when Séance isn't downloading files.
Séance uses "xxHash 64-bit". You can find the details at their website
his hash system is really very fast. As a result, it works well with Séance.


Upcoming updates will start to add missing functionality, including controlling the Canon Lens mount, as well as other Camera settings.

Séance v3.0 is ready for Release!

Séance v3.0 is ready for Release!
Control a Phantom Camera with a Macintosh!

Hi Phantom Operators! 

I am thrilled to say that Séance v3.0 is out of beta. It has been a really long development cycle. The release build is now available via "Auto Update" for those that installed the Séance v3. beta.

(Note: If you installed v3.0.1905 or earlier, auto-update won't pick up the release.)

Some news:
Séance now comes in two versions.
There is now a "Séance Lite" and "Séance". The full package of Séance includes all of the features I have announced. Séance Lite is a feature reduced software package, that is "Download Only". This is very similar Séance v2.0, but with all of the latest code and features. (In short, camera control, live preview, and access to the camera's RAM isn't available with Séance Lite.)

Full Séance v3.0 licenses are $2499.00 and as before, includes the first year of Annual Support. (Subsequent Annual Support is $899.00)

Séance Lite (and annual support) pricing is the same Séance v2.0. $999.00 and $399.00 for Annual Support.
Séance users that have current support can start using Séance v3.0 Lite immediately.

Those users that wish to use the full Séance v3.0 package, please contact us for upgrade details. Upgrade pricing is also available for Séance v1.0 users and Flex4K Bundle users.

I'll post an update shortly, when the updates go live! Until I get the website updated, email me if you wish to try the package.

Séance v3.0.1908 (beta 4) - Available for download
Posted by Robert Monaghan on 23 June 2017 03:57 PM

Hi Everyone,

I have posted an update to Séance v3.0
This version has undergone a significant re-write of the User Interface code.
This means that the UI will now behave as you would expect.
It also allows for future capabilities as well as even the possibility of language translations. (Lets hope this can happen!)

A brief list of changes:
- Now includes 10G support for the VEO camera.
- Fixes to downloading to different destinations
- HD-SDI modes have been implemented.
- Better support for Miro M320S LAB camera.
- Primitive work being done on CineFlash/C-Fast cards. (Not complete, but the work has been started.)
- Graphics performance tweeks.
- Code simplification and cleanup underway.

This has been one of the largest re-working of the User Interface code, since I have been working on Séance. I think you guys will see the difference.
Enjoy! Report Bugs, and Request features!
