Capture Nexum Lighting Computer Software

Posted


"Nexum" is latin for "the location where many things connect" and with Capture Nexum we have truly managed to expand Capture's connection points to other technologies and systems, ranging from screen technology and LED as well as filter colour accuracy to physical media input and streaming technologies, 3D model and fixture data / patch file format interchange to 3D motion tracking.

The following are the most interesting new concepts, enhancements and features introduced with Capture Nexum.

Accurate colour visualization
Capture has adopted the ACES (Academy Color Encoding System) colour model for its rendering pipeline, allowing colour computations to be made in a colour space designed to accomodate all physically available colours as opposed to only those traditionally visible on a computer screen. The library has also been extended with scientifically accurate colour information for filters and LED light sources, resulting in more true-to-life colours on screen.

Visualization enhancements
A new fill lighting option emulates global illumination effects, rendering a much more credible atmosphere sensitive to colour changes in the lighting. Anti-aliasing shaves off the rough edges of your geometry, making the visualization much more pleasing and credible. Further enhancements provide visualization of narrowly laid out multi-aperture fixtures as well as oval PAR lamps.

NewTek NDI video streaming
Capture can now receive live video streams from NewTek NDI sources, the new ethernet-based high quality cross-platform video streaming solution. This opens for a wide variety of video sources including media servers, video players such as VLC, video capture device and broadcast environment video sources.

Video capture devices
As a complement to local video file playback, Capture now also supports video capture devices as means of getting live video into Capture. On Windows, Media Foundation drivers are required and we have verified compatibility with the new DataPath VisionLC video capture card range.

DMX generated textures
By generating material textures using DMX it is possible to visualize a variety of different setups otherwise difficult to create, such as DMX controlling the colour of an object, simulating a LED dance floor or a decorational LED tape without having to place and patch individual LEDs.

Cinema 4D import
Import Cinema 4D (*.c4d) files from MAXON's popular 3D package directly into Capture, split by objects and with material and layer support, preserving flat and UVW texture projections. Capture also understands and treats entities from the Hantmade Stage plugin as single objects and is able to automatically replace them with Capture library fixtures.

DWG & DXF import enhancements
Capture now also understands materials and textures in DWG files and splits imported entities by both materials and solids, making imported objects easier to work with. Edge visiblity preservation has also been improved, avoiding unnecessary clutter in the imported objects.

Data import enhancements
Capture is now able to add new fixtures to a project during data import, optionally replacing imported objects with fixtures as well. Special care has been taken to automatically configure the import process for files from ChamSys MagicVis, grandMA2 and VectorWorks. In combination with the DWG import enhancements, a complete workflow for exporting 3D model and fixture information from VectorWorks into Capture now exists.

Data export enhancements
Capture now also supports exporting data in the High End Hog 4 patch XML format (available with Hog 4 version 3.6).

PosiStageNet and RTTrPM motion tracking
Capture now supports PosiStageNet, the open protocol for on-stage, live 3D position streaming from VYV and MA Lighting. This opens up the possibility for any motion control systems to integrate with Capture. Capture now also supports the RTTrPM open protocol, supported by BlackTrax the real-time tracking system by CAST.
