Spatial Studio 2.1.0

Spatial Studio 2.1.0 adds significant features for content creation and local playback management.  It works best with computer groups running Spatial Reality 10.2.10 or later.

New Features

  • Object volume fading lets you set parameters for fading an object’s volume up and down at the beginning and end of its playback.  
  • The Playback panel in the Inspector has been split into Volume and Timing panels, and controls for object volume fading are in the Volume panel.
  • Volume fade down is relative to the end of an object’s duration, so it adapts to changes in duration caused by random loop delays, pick-1 soundsets, etc.
  • Option to deactivate an object at the end of a fade down.
  • Sound file trimming lets you crop the beginning and end of sound file playback.
  • Audio effects can now be enabled and disabled using check boxes in the Inspector’s Effects panel, so you can turn effects on and off without losing settings.
  • Pinch to zoom is now supported in the timeline.
  • Selecting “Local mode” in the preferences panel now lets you disconnect from spaces on your network while retaining their spacemaps. 
  • Color-coded “Space Connection Status” indicators in the Preferences panel and Canvas header bar inform you of your connection status.
  • In the preferences panel, the “Spaces” pull-down menu now lets you choose between 3 different sizes of default spaces: 4x4, 8x8, and 16x16 meters.
  • Hyperlinks can now be added to your scene descriptions.
  • Offline work is now supported when there is no internet connection.  In addition to notification of status, when offline you can now switch spaces and play Spatial Studio scenes to a local deployment.
