Arri has released an update for Stellar, its lighting-control app, that allows for more collaboration and exchange among teams and devices.
New features in Stellar 1.5 include Live Sync Beta, which enables real-time collaboration among Stellar users on separate devices, allowing multiple users to work on the same project and scene simultaneously. Users can adjust the same fixture or different fixtures while the changes are synced in the background as they occur. The setup process is straightforward and can be accomplished in a few minutes.
Stellar 1.5 also allows for the export and import of projects and scenes. Exporting can be accomplished by sending a project or scene to the cloud, by sharing wirelessly between devices, by email or messaging or by using other methods of sharing work. Exporting also allows the user to back up a project or scene to a specified destination. It’s also possible to share color favorites; colors or palettes of color can be exported or imported quickly in Stellar 1.5 by simply clicking the three dots menu in the top right corner of the Favorites window.
With Stellar 1.5 on iOS, it is possible to back up all projects, scenes and favorites to iCloud. This sync happens automatically and instantly, allowing for the same files to be shared across multiple devices using the same iCloud account. Projects that have been initiated on an iPhone are now automatically backed up and ready for use on an iPad (and vice versa).
Stellar 1.5 also features several refinements, including the ability to delete all favorites, improved lighting effect UI, blackout indicator for fixtures, improved RDM identify behavior and disconnected-fixture visibility.
