Hello Wirecast Users!

Thank you for all your testing on our Wirecast 13 Beta. We have been working hard fixing these and loads of other issues that our crack QA team is finding, and wanted to submit a new, improved version of our Wirecast 13 Beta, which I will hereby officially dub “13.0 Beta 2”.

Please take a look and put it through its paces. Below is a list of the reported bugs that we have fixed. (Note, there are hundreds of other little fixes we’ve made specifically around the new features and improvements that we added to version 13, that I won’t mention, since they were found by our QA team, and you may have not even noticed them.)

Fixes and Improvements

  • WIRE-16114 / WIRE 15624 – Added support for PTZOptics PT12X-ZCam, for which we added a message in the PTZ Control Window that this device does not support pan/tilt controls. (It only zooms).
  • WIRE-16120 – Fixed an issue where ProRes files caused Wirecast to crash. (Thank you MP)
  • WIRE-16125 – Fixed the Image Carousel – which is also fixed in 12.2.1, by the way.
  • WIRE 16128 – We wrangled the width and height input fields for a solid color shot and put them back where they belong. (Thank you MP)
  • WIRE 16196 – Now when you modify the Source Properties of Blackmagic devices while ISO recording, your Preferences for the device will not become corrupt.
  • WIRE 16200 – We now warn busy users that the Facebook Speed Test can take several minutes. (Thank you IAG)
  • WIRE-16201 – Fixed a hang that happened if you took the very specific action to add a playlist shot, move it and then click at the top of Wirecast.
  • WIRE-16202 – On Windows, we fixed an issue where certain keys took a vacay and ceased to function when adding text to the Source area. (Thank you MP)
  • WIRE-16213 – Eradicated an egregious bug that would cause Wirecast to slow down or eventually hang when the audio properties panel was open. That was a doozy. (Thank you MJ)
  • WIRE-16217 – We added back the menu bar, which would mysteriously disappear when you opened the Advanced Rendezvous Audio Mixer on Mac.
  • WIRE-16219 – The preset up and down arrows in the PTZ Controller Window no longer stubbornly send a recall command when pushed. (Thank you JP)
  • WIRE-16235 – The ISO filename no longer reverts to default after choosing a destination.
  • WIRE-16260 / WIRE-16054 – When an interlaced video gets added as a shot, deinterlacing now appears as an option. The default setting is to perform no deinterlacing. (Thank you EB)
  • WIRE-16271 – Fixed an issue where most SD video (720x480) from Blackmagic and other devices were coming in with improper scaling.
  • WIRE-16283 – Fixed an issue where m3u8 files were flickering when added as a Web Stream source. (Thank you CP)

NOTE:  We have disabled the Source Preview window, which we briefly introduced in the first BETA. This feature will return, once we have time to fine-tune it and make sure it’s an absolute pleasure to use.

See the attached release notes to see the full list of fixes, improvements and changes we've made to version 13. 

Thank you!

    Hi Benjamin

    Connecting pal sources? Have you tried the same physical interface with other input spec? What is the physical interface?

  • Greg Kuhnert I have 3 different capture devices, all usb 3.1, they all do it when plugged into my Canon XF400, PAL which is configured to Full HD 50p.
    They are different brands, RIPSAW HD, j5 Create 4k UHD, and another USB 3.0 HDMI capture box.  All are capable of capturing uncompressed HDMI or 4:2:2 depending on input configuration.

  • Benjamin Turner and for the second part of your question, yes, when plugged into my full HD Sony NEX running at 60p they have no issue at all.

    Have you played with the preferences - under "Performance" and changed the frame rate to either match input at 50, or perhaps half of input at 25? This should not cause it to crash, but it can't hurt to try to align this...

    Installed V13. Using 6 PTZoptics NDI cameras.  Pc is Windows 10 pro i7 64gb memory, SSD for the OS, page/swap and video capture. We are also using the keys controller.  V13 is a HUGE performance improvement. Using the GPUS for the shot preview icons works very well.

    Our audio is all Dante.  We use Dante virtually sound card to get audio in to the PC   

     

    So far I am seeing only two issues.  1st we can’t monitor the audio on the pc.  Need to do more trouble shooting but interested if others are having similar issues.  2nd. We could not get the stream to face book live to start. I seem to be able to login in to my account but then the Description and locations are locked/grayed out. If I select schedule for later it hangs.  I also can’t save the setting.  If I exit and return it goes back to the “record to disk” setting.  This was working on V12.

     So this worked in previous Beta version?
    Please test in 12.2.1 and confirm.

    It's possible the issue is related to the devices you're using but first test in 12.2.1 in a new document and if you see the issue please post in the regular Wirecast forum for capture devices.

     You should explain how you are monitoring otherwise we can't troubleshoot or verify.

    That might be an account based or Wirecast preferences based issue. First reset Wirecast preferences. Wirecast > Help > Send Support Information but click on lower left Reset Preferences button. Then restart Wirecast and use a New Blank Document. You can test without any sources.

  • Is v13 available for free as part of the coverage plan (if we're still in our current coverage year)?
