m pi

Modulo Pi announced the launch of Modulo Kinetic version 4, offering a revamped user interface, improved 3D engine and new capabilities dedicated to virtual productions. The Modulo Kinetic Designer has new icons, optimized views, toolbars, timelines, nodal programming editor and more. Special attention was paid to the 3D scene viewer to offer users smoother navigation with the software.

Version 4 includes the support of Notch Block, 10-bit Apple ProRes and 10-bit GoPro Cineform. Modulo Kinetic also supports LUT format, allowing creative filters and real-time color grading. Modulo Pi’s media server expands its interactivity with support of the WebSocket protocol; it is now possible to create custom web applications and interact with shows created in Modulo Kinetic from a smartphone, a touch screen or any other computing device.

The already existing internal database of video projectors has been updated to reach +680 references. Projectors can be easily imported into Modulo Kinetic Designer from a CSV file. Their distribution in 3D scenes also includes a new clone and symmetry tool.

Detailed study documentation can be created directly in Modulo Kinetic. Users can add measures or annotations to 3D scenes. They can also export information required, such 3D view snapshots, lux and pixel density views with captions, PDF liss of video projectors with their information and more. It is also possible to render camera, projector or mesh instance in a timeline layer with post-process Reflection, Ambient Occlusion (SSAO), Depth of Field (DOF), Glow and advanced Antialiasing.

Modulo Kinetic V4 offers a series of new features and enhancements to address the need for virtual and hybrid events in the context of the COVID-19. Compatible with green screen and LED screen configurations, these new capabilities are tailored to Pro AV companies considering XR projects. It also integrates FreeD calibration for the Panasonic AW-UE100 and AW-UE150 PTZ cameras, as well as pose calibration and intrinsic calibration of fixed cameras.
