What's NEW (changelog)
New stuff: - NEW: Visual Pois V4 can now be LIVE previewed in LtComposer (requires FT firmware: 210909) - NEW: Visual Pois V4 shows can be started with 6 levels of brightness (requires FT firmware: 210909 + VPOI4 firmware: 0.45) - NEW: Visual Pois V4 can be started and previewed over USB (requires VPOI4 firmware: 0.45) Improvements: - TWEAK: FT remote goes always to the standby mode after finished pairing Bug fixes: - FIX: LED Club FT2 was flashing green when being turned off - FIX: Visual Poi V4 was not showing battery level in the Devices menu - FIX: FT units were not reacting to the first PING command received - FIX: duplicate device lines were shown during the pairing process in the Devices menu
New stuff: - NEW: easier selection of a solid color - hold any color button on the FT remote for 0.5 second - NEW: the FT remote's brightness level is reset to maximum with each powering OFF / ON - NEW: radio commands are sent in a quick burst of 3 repetitions, then every 500 milliseconds (increases FT system robustness) - NEW: added a USB serial command 'bright <0-5>' to set FT remote current brightness level - NEW: possibility to upload shows wirelessly to the FT2 devices - NEW: broadcast pairing mode (unlimited number of controlled devices) - hold the A/B button during pairing process for 1 second to toggle between group/broadcast pairing - NEW: uploaded shows are indicated with a white color double-blink on the LEDs Improvements: - TWEAK: when cycling the A/B/A+B controlled segments with the A/B button, the A+B selection keeps showing the A and B parts - TWEAK: an FT1/FT2 unit in pairing mode can be now turned off with one long continuous button press - TWEAK: a show started from the FT Remote controller can be stopped on the FT1/FT2 unit by holding its power button for 3 seconds (was 1.5 seconds before) - TWEAK: removed 'product ID' from the FT2 unit's USB reported name Bug fixes: - FIX: perfect sync functionality stopped working after 1 minute 10 seconds on FT2 devices - FIX: FT2 devices stopped reacting to show start signals and stopped showing battery indication after 35-70 minutes of use - FIX: a shorter show subsequently overwritten with a longer show caused the longer show stop prematurely on FT1 devices - FIX: FT remote was not starting a show when the following exact sequence was repeated several times: 1) turn on the FT remote, start the show 1-4 2) stop the show 3) turn off the FT remote - FIX: when a turned off FT1/FT2 unit had different A/B setting than currently set on an FT remote, when turned on back, the B segment behaved strangely when clicking the A/B button - FIX: improved pairing performance with units that had worse signal reception - FIX: USB serial commands 'leach', 'lprog', 'lstop', 'gmute' were not working
General: - NEW: full compatibility of all Lighttoys props: FT remotes, FT devices, FT2 devices (Visual Hoop) and Visual Poi V4 devices all work together - NEW: brightness of a running show can be changed by holding the UP/DOWN arrow on the FT remote - NEW: auto-reduction of brightness when the battery is depleted (prolonging run time) - NEW: sleep mode - after 30 minutes of inactivity, the FT device goes into a silent mode (turning off LEDs, but is ready to react to radio signals) for 4 hours, then turns off completely - NEW: increased number of scanned frequencies during the pairing mode (from 5 to 9) to select a channel with the least interference - NEW: device names expanded to 32 characters length - NEW: most of the radio commands are now sent repetitively (standby, silent mode, etc.) to improve reception robustness - TWEAK: clicking the UP/DOWN arrow now changes the speed of a color effect - TWEAK: holding the UP/DOWN arrow now changes the brightness of a color effect - TWEAK: more accurate battery level indication during power cycle - TWEAK: Zebra mode was removed, holding A/B button is now used to redefine A/B split point & its variants on FT2 devices - FIX: to start a show from any point on the timeline (using FT remote), the show must have been played continuously from zero time up until the desired point at least once FT specific: - NEW: 2x faster & more robust wireless uploading of FT shows - NEW: uploaded FT shows 1-4 can now occupy more than quarter of the available memory (memory is no longer rigidly segmented into fourths) - NEW: possibility to manually start shows 1-4 on the FT device with the power button (indicated on the A-segment's LEDs) - NEW: improved signal range during FW update - TWEAK: Favorite modes were removed as part of refactoring FT2 specific: - NEW: graphic progress bar on LEDs during the show upload process - NEW: possibility to manually start shows 1-4 on the FT2 device with the power button (indicated on the first 4 LEDs, similar to Visual Poi) - TWEAK: increased brightness of the graphic progress bar on LEDs - FIX: first uploaded show after the device was powered ON couldn't be played Visual Poi & Wand V4: - FIX: Perfect Sync feature was not working, when 2+ units were turned OFF/ON at the same time
