WIRE-18168: Remove Facebook Live with User Code Destination. Facebook have deprecated this functionality.
WIRE-18064: Added a new dynamic destination for Castr.
WIRE-18021: New and improved System Audio Capture on Mac - works on T2 chip Macs and on macOS Big Sur. Better performance, more reliable, delicious on toast.
WIRE-18004: Treat yourself, once again, to cropping by percentage. (And for those of you who liked cropping by pixels, we got you covered).
WIRE-18000: You can now happily hide your cursor when screen capturing on Windows.
WIRE-17998: ISO recording doesn’t have to be hard, but we tried to make it easier by adding better error messaging for common ISO recording problems.
WIRE-17966: Major improvement to ISO recording. Now you can ISO Record SHOTS! (Think Rendezvous shots, Wirecast Go shots, audio only shots…). To nerd out on this, read our little companion novel here.
WIRE-17952/WIRE-17898: In some cases, devices don’t provide accurate time stamps. This can cause A/V sync issues. We now expose an option in System Device Properties to use timestamps “Provided by source” or “Generated by Wirecast”. More info here.
WIRE-17901: Updated the look of the Rendezvous Session window to make it match the Rendezvous Dashboard.
WIRE-17875/ WIRE-17220: Made improvements to auto-reconnect Rendezvous. Previously, if the connection to Rendezvous was cut-off for any reason (e.g. unplugging ethernet cable, switching WiFi connections, network failure, etc.), the video displays for your Rendezvous guests would freeze and not restore themselves even after whatever caused the network failure was fixed. Now we will try to reconnect 8 times. When the reconnection process begins, a progress wheel widget is displayed in the bottom right next to the 'Disconnect' button. If reconnection fails, you are automatically disconnected from the session and given an error message.
WIRE-17810/WIRE-17404/WIRE-13505: New! Added the ability to output via Secure Reliable Transport (SRT). Read more about SRT: http://www.srtalliance.org.

WIRE-17745/ WIRE-14963: If you check out Preferences, you may just notice a new option called “Canvas”. Yep, now you can set a whole bunch of default settings for your broadcast canvas.
WIRE-17660: Ooh, shiny new update for our Blackmagic SDK to version 11.6.0, adding support for capture and output of more video formats. Note, this will require an update to the Blackmagic drivers- but don’t worry, we’ll display a warning in the user log if you need to update your drivers.
WIRE-17573: Now, you can schedule your LinkedIn Live video on your Page or profile in advance.
WIRE-17442: We now show ISO recording errors in the app Notifications window instead of rudely interrupting your workflow with a modal dialog box.

WIRE-16861/WIRE-16704: We now enable ProRes recording on Windows (for regular recording and ISO recording).

WIRE-14052: A default Replay speed can now be set at 0.25x, 0.5x, 1x, or 2x.
WIRE-13977: With our updated Shot ISO recording feature, you can now map a single audio source to multiple video tracks (shots).
WIRE-13636: Increased the maximum video delay value to 10 seconds.
WIRE-13575: New Rendezvous Chat feature. Now you can message instantly with your Rendezvous guests, right within the app. Confirm they’re ready, tell all the guests you’re going off script, or let someone know they have spinach in their teeth.

WIRE-18302: Now it’s no longer possible to input 0 for size in the Shot Layer Properties size box when Locked Aspect Ratio is enabled.
WIRE-18296: We wrangled the Cross Dissolve transition to once again fade audio instead of cutting it.
WIRE-18291: Squashed a crash that could occur when attempting to stream to SRT after deleting another configured output.
WIRE-18283: Fixed Shot Layer Drop Shadows on the Clock Widget.
WIRE-18272: Multiviewer was only displaying on the primary monitor when running Wirecast through the Rosetta emulator on macOS M1 machines. It now happily will display on other monitors.
WIRE-18262: Fixed a doozy where Blackmagic Output could stop sending audio if seeking or switching shots on certain media files (especially if they are long GOP format. Note: don’t use those when you can avoid it!).
WIRE-18208: Removed “Record Additional Audio channels” checkbox from Shot ISO recording UI.
WIRE-18207/WIRE-17960: Wirecast now will not obstinately ignore your mouse clicks on Windows, which you could have experienced if you removed a layer via the Shot Layers right-click context menu.
WIRE-18153: Fixed an issue where the Main Shot Display on Windows briefly stretched or squished when you zoomed layer height.
WIRE-18149/WIRE-18048: Increased size of the Vimeo authentication window on Windows, which is helpful when you actually want to see it.

WIRE-18133: Audio increases in volume momentarily when using certain transitions.
WIRE-18115: Removed an erroneous warning message when you opened a Wirecast document from Windows Explorer if you already had another document open.
WIRE-18104: Crash on exit with certain Thunderbolt 3 PCI-e adapters with certain Blackmagic capture cards on macOS.
WIRE-18093: Order of operations change for streaming to LinkedIn Live: we’ll check if live video is available, then create a post (instead of creating a post and then checking for the live video).
WIRE-18077: Reverted a previous performance improvement with H.264 files on Windows due to the change causing playback problems with other certain media files.
WIRE-18075: Did you know there was something wrong with opacity setting for Solid color on macOS? No? Oh. Then there wasn’t. See, everything is fine.
WIRE-18070: Fixed a crash that could occur on macOS when changing shot templates.
WIRE-18065: Fixed an issue where opening context menus would cause the Multiviewer to drop frames on Windows.
WIRE-18052/ WIRE-18051/ WIRE-18050: Simplified the Output Settings for Facebook, Twitch and Vimeo by removing a Sign-Up link that was so small you could barely see it anyway.
WIRE-18044: When a YouTube Event is selected, we now try to select a preset matching the event’s stream frame rate and resolution.
WIRE-18022: If you change your canvas size and try to quit, we will now stop you and ask if you want to save that change. Just trying to make things easier for you.
WIRE-18015/ WIRE-17776: You may have heard, we updated our Clock widget – and happily, all the typeface settings now work. Unless it’s Chalkboard. No one should be using Chalkboard font.
WIRE-18013: Now when you transition a shot with the De-Ess filter enabled, you won’t hear a popping noise – causing you to run to the microwave to check your popcorn before it burns.
WIRE-18010: If you try to record an ISO recording to a folder that doesn’t exist, we will now warn you politely, instead of giving you the finger and silently refusing to record.

WIRE-17959: We removed ‘Show Facebook Post’ link from our Facebook Destination Scheduled Events since Facebook has removed this functionality.
WIRE-17948/WIRE-17760/WIRE-17620/WIRE-17481: Fixed a crash that could happen when adding a Blackmagic source that is capturing certain resolutions.
WIRE-17928: Fixed an issue with certain RSS feeds not displaying correctly.
WIRE-17912: If you uncheck Twitter in Output Settings, we will no longer illogically require you to log into your Twitter account before you can stream.

WIRE-17847/WIRE-18109: Now your settings are maintained when you copy and paste a source from one shot to another
WIRE-17813: We thank you for your patience. Wirecast sometimes took a long time to open if you had recent documents with Titler Live sources. Once you open and save your document, you’ll see that’s fixed. (You’ll need to open any recent Wirecast Documents that appear in your Welcome Window, and save them to stop experiencing slow loading.)
WIRE-17737: Fixed an annoying issue where audio would become distorted when outputting via in Blackmagic output.
WIRE-17682: If your RTMP output fails, we now perform a little check to see if perhaps your firewall or antivirus is blocking your ability to stream, and we’ll quietly let you know.
WIRE-17589: Fixed a link in an ISO-related error message that led you into a dark alley and left you there to figure out what happened and to fend for yourself.
WIRE-17575: Fixed a rare crash on macOS that could occur at quit, when the Teradek Streamreader plugin was installed.
WIRE-17470: We squashed a bug where playing certain media files could cause an indefinite hang on older Macs.
WIRE-17259: Improved error messaging when attempting to connect to a source with dimensions greater than 8000 pixels. 8k is our limit.
WIRE-17052: Fixed some of our output statistics, which weren’t reflecting accurate statistics. Awkward!
WIRE-17008: Improved performance of animated PNG media files, which could cause high CPU usage on playback.
WIRE-16226: Fixed issues where YouTube outputs would get confused if you had several users or outputs.
WIRE-15370: Fixed playback issues with specific media files with AAC audio. Basically, the software equivalent of when your mechanic puts in a new air filter and you have to take their word for it
WIRE-15161: Updated our Dynamic Destination Documentation to include hardware encoders.
Known Issue
NOTE: XKeys Controller does not currently work on macOS Big Sur. If you plan to use XKeys with Wirecast, we advise you to stay on macOS Catalina or Mojave.


Version 14.0.4 – October 14, 2020
Fixes
WIRE-18071: One more YouTube fix: We had to enable Wirecast to use a previous YouTube stream key when creating events.


Version 14.0.3 – October 12, 2020
Fixes
WIRE-18045: Updated the Lumens PTZ Profile, which may have the happy consequence that some Sony cameras will now work with this profile.
WIRE-18030: We now limit the Multiviewer render frame rate to the canvas frame rate, which should reduce the amount of background processing going on. Previously this would always render at 60Hz.
WIRE-18028: We removed the Stream Now event for YouTube Destination, since YouTube has removed this option.
WIRE-18027: Fixed a Backenderror when creating a YouTube Event. No one wants a backenderror.
WIRE-17990: Fixed a crash that could occur if you edited a YouTube Scheduled Event and that Event mysteriously returned a start date of 1/1/1970.
WIRE-17955/WIRE-17941: Text Scrolling now works when OS is set to any language other than English.
WIRE-17934: We re-enable Global Keyboard Shortcuts on macOS Big Sur. If you were following closely, we disabled them on Catalina because they caused a crash. Big Sur doesn’t have that issue.
WIRE-17913: RTMP output stream field can now be empty, and you can write your own stream name into the field.
Known Issues
NOTE: XKeys Controller does not currently work on macOS Big Sur. If you plan to use XKeys with Wirecast, we advise you to stay on macOS Catalina or Mojave.
NOTE: As part of the fix for WIRE-17286, on BlackMagic devices, we now identify them via hardware ID instead of enumeration order. The fallout is that if you have a document that once referred to one piece of hardware it may fail to initially reference a different piece of hardware. The workaround is to use the asset manager to replace the references to the new hardware. Once done, that document should save your new sources as expected.


Version 14.0 – September 1, 2020
New & Improved
WIRE-17882: Added an option on Wirecast Gear licenses to disable audio capture from the capture cards.
WIRE-17852/ WIRE-17835: Added a lock button to link the new width and height size fields in the Video Properties tab.
WIRE-17730: Updated Wirecast Gear 300 and 400 series capture cards drivers and SDK to version 190.1.

WIRE-17704: Implemented a new way to scale your sources using a handy Jog Wheel widget.
WIRE-17674: Add a visual example to the documentation of the Countdown Clock Display Gear icon menu.
WIRE-17666: Removed Auto-Canvas option as it was confusing and no longer serving a useful purpose. New documents will default to 720p. Older documents will be set at their actual canvas size, and you’ll get a warning if your output resolutions don’t match your canvas size.
WIRE-17628: We updated some code to make our capture card inputs more efficient for Wirecast Gear 300 and 400 series.
WIRE-17617: Updated the highlight color for Windows buttons to be less obnoxious than the bright green.

WIRE-17585: Added a checkbox option in Advanced Preferences to allow you to reconnect live shots automatically if they get disconnected. Defaults to checked.
WIRE-17577: Implemented a system of fixed latency for selecting the video & audio frames to render for each source. As part of this, we added a new text field to the Advanced section of the Preferences that will let you specify the Global Input Latency Wirecast should use. Lower latency means more possibility of audio blips; longer latency means more delay before video & audio are shown.
WIRE-17556: We added an option to disconnect all peers when ending a Rendezvous session
WIRE-17533: Added the ability to set a LinkedIn Live event to "Public" or "Private".
WIRE-17467: Added a font face pop up to more accurately select font variations.
WIRE-17451: Updated the term "Audio Interface" to the more descriptive "Audio Playback" for clarity.

WIRE-17190: Smoothed out audio from sources when connecting and disconnecting.
WIRE-17077: Updated to NDI SDK 4.5.
WIRE-17019: Wirecast now opens at the size of the screen instead of at a certain size in the top left corner of the screen
WIRE-16972: Made some under-the-hood improvements to the Audio Mixer, which should result in an improved efficiency and reduced CPU load.
WIRE-16933: Upgraded our Webstream plugin (libVLC) to version 3.0.8.
WIRE-16930/ WIRE-16734/ WIRE-6613 /WIRE-14: Introducing Chroma Key v2: Added new features to our Chroma Key to enable more accurate keying, including spill suppression, edge coloring, clipping ranges and more.
WIRE-16929: Introducing Color Key: Added a new Color Key feature which keys using colors in the RGB space. Useful for images (logos) that have non-black and non-white backgrounds.
WIRE-16928: Introducing Luma Key: Added a new Luma Key feature which sets the image alpha based on the intensity (y) value, ignoring the color (U and V) values. This is useful if you have a logo with a white or black background you wish to remove.
WIRE-16925/WIRE-12741/WIRE-16650: Rebuilt our Mulitviewer, and in the process, added some cool new audio meters.
WIRE-16847: Implemented a menu & menu items under the 'Switch' menu that restores the toggle functionality of Layers in the Main Shot Display area.
WIRE-16783: Rebuilt the Shot Layers User Interface- you’ll notice some snappier animations and a subtle new look.
WIRE-16749: Added support for new "made for Kids" guidelines in YouTube destination.
WIRE-16739: Improve the Output Statistics for RTMP Destinations.
WIRE-16732: Changed the way we store/show your document thumbnail, to reduce file size.
WIRE-16699: Rewrote our text widget to, among other things, improve performance and smoothness of scrolling text.
WIRE-16663: There is now a 'Delete all' button in the Asset Manager window to remove all missing assets at once.
WIRE-16648: Switched from the Apple-deprecated OpenGL render engine to Metal on macOS.
WIRE-16129: Major improvements in the way Wirecast sizes incoming video sources. This, along with the new ways you can resize your videos and bounding boxes, should make it much easier to get your media precisely the size you want it to be.
WIRE-15995/WIRE-17442: We moved the status bar to the bottom of the main document UI to free up space at the top. It will show System CPU, bitrate, dropped frames, viewer count, Facebook reactions and Telestream Cloud status.
WIRE-15915: Added the ability to bring in an NDI audio only source.
WIRE-15584: Added an "Add All" button in Rendezvous to more efficiently add all guests at once.
WIRE-14979: We now allow you to set In and Out points on your Custom (Stinger) transitions.
WIRE-14072: We added an improvement so that all sources appear and disappear from the source list while the Add Source dialog is showing, so you no longer need to close and reopen the dialog to see updates.
WIRE-12911: Improved experience when a shot gets disconnected. You now have the option for disconnected shots to be replaced with the red question mark, a transparency, or an image of your choice.

WIRE-17805: Playlists were missing their thumbnail images – we found them and put them back.
WIRE-17802: Scale-to-Fit button was not doing what it was supposed to do when assets had a crop applied. Now it’s behaving.
WIRE-17796: Removed references in our User Guide to an old feature involving the ability to move between Keynote slides in Wirecast.
WIRE-17793: We brightened display of timecode for media playback in Live – you're welcome Barrie.
WIRE-17791: Fixed an error where YouTube accounts with no upcoming events would show “Error retrieving streams from server”.
WIRE-17790: Fixed an issue with our new Chroma/Luma/Color Key where in one Beta version it was making the subject partially transparent.
WIRE-17783: Loading Wheel no longer appears when transitioning from Clear Layer to any shot on macOS.
WIRE-17782: Stinger Transitions are now scaled properly in the “Manage Stinger Transitions” menu.

WIRE-17709: "Smooth" and "Cut" transitions are no longer choppy
WIRE-17699: We increased the time we attempt to synchronize incoming audio and video sources for ISO recording - in order to handle sync better.
WIRE-17696: Fixed an issue on Mac where certain transitions would cause all layers to transition instead of just the changed layer
WIRE-17688: When you add a new output destination, we now don't retain the old data in the new output configuration

WIRE-17640: Removed Syphon Inject from User Guide.
WIRE-17639: Fixed a bunch of cropping issues - including the Control key not working
WIRE-17633: We've removed Syphon Frame as a Source Option. Syphon depends on the OpenGL framework, (which Apple is in the process of deprecating), and as of version 14.0, we've moved Wirecast to the Metal framework, which is not compatible with Syphon.
WIRE-17630: Added a warning when you disconnect Rendezvous sources - so you don't accidentally disconnect people.
WIRE-17629: Removed use of the word "Master" in Wirecast and documentation in favor of Main Shot Bin and Main Audio Mixer.
WIRE-17627: Fixed drop shadows being upside down on macOS.
WIRE-17623: Fixed a YouTube authentication issue.

WIRE-17465: Fixed an issue where output destination names would rebel, if left unnamed, and take over a name from an existing destination.
WIRE-17463/ WIRE-17420/ WIRE-16591/ WIRE-15317: Satisfyingly, fixed a number of rare crashes that could occur when switching shots.
WIRE-17460: Now we impose a limit (75) on the number of layers within a shot (for your own good).

WIRE-17408/ WIRE-17334: Fixed an issue that would let you close a document without saving some source properties settings - thus causing you to lose those settings.
WIRE-17378/WIRE-17213: Fixed issue where your text and clock shots would suddenly go missing.
WIRE-17373: Auto-Canvas was sometimes reporting the wrong resolution.
WIRE-17343: Added a font face pop up to more accurately select font variations.
WIRE-17323: Fixed a confusing error that would show a Wirecast crash error upon opening.
WIRE-17315: The websocket connection to the server was closing unexpectedly when using a VPN service with Rendezvous. So now we add a periodic ping to keep the websocket connection alive.
WIRE-17304: Restricted Virtual Camera to only output from one document at a time.
WIRE-17303: Fixed a scaling issue where icons could be erroneously horizontally stretched
WIRE-17302: Input fields in Output Settings are no longer unresponsive following a single factor authentication failure.
WIRE-17291: Fixed a Fatal Application error that could occur when streaming
WIRE-17279: Fixed a crash that could occur if your document freaked out and got into a state where it wasn't ready for the next action. This could occur when attempting a screen capture when an audio driver is not installed, or you have shots programmed to an Elgato StreamDeck.
WIRE-17261/ WIRE-17174: NDI audio can now be sent joyously and distortion-free to Rendezvous participants

WIRE-17169: Added a notification when attempting to install on Windows 8.x. (Psst: It requires Windows 10 or higher).
WIRE-17164: Canvas Size limitations are now enforced when using custom presets.
WIRE-17150: If your document was saved with a layer off in a previous version of Wirecast, and opened in Wirecast 13, the layer would not appear. We found your missing layer and brought it home.
WIRE-17148/WIRE-17075: Fixed a rare crash when running the app in the background on macOS.
WIRE-17142: When sending live captions through our WebServices platform, certain platforms are not handling b-frames correctly resulting in garbled captions. To account for that, we added new "Cloud Captioning" encoding presets that turn b-frames off and increase bit rate (to account for inherent quality loss of turning off b-frames).
WIRE-17278: Now your encoding preset won’t spontaneously change after you create an event.
WIRE-17133: Add documentation for sources that can be used with ISO Recording.
WIRE-17126: Selected transition was not used when using Keyboard Shortcuts when AutoLive was enabled.
WIRE-17124: Add ability to Screen Capture hardware accelerated applications on Windows 10 1903 and higher. Examples are Chrome, Firefox and Zoom.

WIRE-17084: Facebook recently made changes to Groups that restricts any app from accessing certain features, such as the Live API, until an admin grants access to the app. We updated our error message for this so you might actually know what it means and what to do about it.
WIRE-17080: Increased the efficiency of data calls for Facebook scheduled events
WIRE-17065: Fixed an issue using audio interfaces with Rendezvous on macOS.
WIRE-17063: Improved resiliency when dealing with apps that feed us video timestamps that are off from the audio timestamps (e.g. JustWifiCam on iOS).
WIRE-17055: Fixed a crash that could occur while setting up a YouTube event
WIRE-16994: There were some unnecessary horizontal scroll bars on Windows that we removed. Now you won’t be tempted to scroll when you can’t.
WIRE-16973: Made some under-the-hood fixes to reduce CPU on Mac
WIRE-16963/WIRE-16904: Fixed an issue where sources on your Live and Preview would scale to 1/4 when dragging your document from one monitor to another on macOS.
WIRE-16924: Added trace logs to improve our ability to track errors to YouTube streaming.
WIRE-16917: Fixed issue where icons in the Main Shot Display were not handled consistently across audio sources and in some cases were not respecting the addition/removal of layers containing audio
WIRE-16912: Fixed a horizontal misalignment of Bitrate in the Output Statistics
WIRE-16911: Fixed horizontal alignment of Channel in the Rendezvous Audio Mixer in certain languages.

WIRE-16835: Fixed the layout of our Support Assistant in several languages.
WIRE-16825: Fixed a rare hang when exiting to Multiviewer while ingesting a BlackMagic source.
WIRE-16820: Added CPU data to the trace log on exit.
WIRE-16811: Added a manual configuration option for audio sample rate that will let you pick the value that matches your incoming source. (Note: you can only configure the audio sample rate when automatic format detection is disabled. We do this to prevent people (we won't name names) who don't know what they're doing, to set it to 196kHz - because they may think bigger is better - and then call support or get stuck because they don't understand what's happening. So, yeah. We're restricting this for your own good. When format detection is enabled, we assume the audio is 48 kHz.)
WIRE-16799: Crash when declining a macOS prompt to install Osaka font.
WIRE-16779: Fixed a crash that would occur when stopping two live streams to Twitter/Periscope.
WIRE-16778: Fixed an issue playing audio from WASAPI devices.
WIRE-16776: We've taken some extraordinary measures to ensure that web stream sources stay connected and don't freeze in Wirecast - even if they restart, end, enter an error state or we stop receiving data for any number of reasons. We now try our darnedest to reconnect.
WIRE-16768: Output Settings UI has some minor alignment issues on macOS.
WIRE-16763: Fixed a crash that could occur if you had a hotkey with no name, and you right-clicked a shot.
WIRE-16762: Fixed an issue that could occur when using a source that produces JPEG frames, on a computer that is not fast enough to decode them in real-time. The result was a backlog of frames that would cause the source's video to be delayed and out of sync with any live audio. (This could've also happened when deinterlacing video from a task source (though less likely since deinterlacing is relatively quick).
WIRE-16760: Wirecast was trying to use deselected/unused output destinations when Live Captions was selected. It won't do that anymore.
WIRE-16747: Fixed our copyright date in the About window.
WIRE-16745: Flash is dead. We're not going to warn you that it's not installed anymore.
WIRE-16713: Reconfigured NDI Output to avoid "clocking" the output which was intended to help file-based outputs but effectively slowed down real-time sources, resulting in for example, dropped frames at 1080p60.
WIRE-16694: Reconfigured NDI Output, which effectively improved several issues- one of which was an observed A/V sync issue on NDI Out.
WIRE-16684: Fixed an issue that cause no video from the Logitech B910 when using Motion JPEG.
WIRE-16643: The option to move a shot from a Playlist back to the Main Shot list… is back.
WIRE-16627: Fixed an issue where Scheduled Events in YouTube were going live immediately.
WIRE-16613: Restored the ability for keyboard navigation in dialog boxes on macOS.

WIRE-16469: More under-the-hood improvements - we updated the Wirecast audio code to use AudioQueue and WASAPI APIs. The only user-facing change in this phase is that audio from multiple open documents will now be mixed together rather than only playing the audio from the topmost document.
WIRE-16467: We updated some wording for our Failed to Activate License warning, and included a link to our license reset tool.
WIRE-16464: When running Wirecast on a Windows machine where a monitor has > 100% scale, the text and graphics are now crisp and clean.

WIRE-16621: Fixed a long-standing annoyance where an extremely long RTMP stream key or name would get truncated and not saved correctly in a document.
WIRE-16614: We found a crash that could occur when closing a document after starting some recordings. We don’t know why you would ever do that, but we fixed it.

WIRE-16540: Fixed a missed translation in an Output Settings window.
WIRE-16539: Wirecast is no longer supported on Windows 7 after January 2020, so we now do not allow it to be installed on versions lower than Windows 10.

WIRE-16530: For those of us who don’t fully understand the purpose of the Monitor Mix Minus button – we have added a tooltip to help.
WIRE-16522: Bet you didn’t even catch the misspelling. Consoliated is not a word. And now you won’t see that non-word in our app. #embarrassing
WIRE-16519: Fixed an issue where cryptic placeholder strings were displayed in place of text in a navigation menu in several instances.
WIRE-16504 / 16212 /16507: Fixed numerous reported issues with the countdown clock – specifically where it would default to local computer time when stopped – making it impossible to pause the countdown.
WIRE-16499: Stinger transitions on Mac now work and maintain transparency for all framerates, including 25fps, which briefly forgot how to function.
WIRE-16497: Fixed a broken link in the Welcome to Wirecast window that pointed to a video, which you may have wanted to watch but couldn’t.

WIRE-16480: If you were trying to bring in a shot from a remote computer that didn’t have much motion, via NDI– you might have noticed the shot would remain black. This was an NDI bug, which can be fixed by updating to NDI Tools v.4.
WIRE-16474: Fixed an issue where the audio Multi-Track Input Mapper would not show your source until you resized the window.
WIRE-16473/WIRE-16370: We updated all RTMP outputs to use our transport library, which fixed some issues caused by using a different library.
WIRE-16465: The inline audio meters used to incorrectly cause the Main Shot Bin to redraw if the meter reading was 0dB. That was a waste of resources, which we’ve corrected.
WIRE-16463: Drop shadows on text were disappearing or didn’t update properly. Fixed.
WIRE-16461: If you declined usage of a device (like a microphone), then later wanted to use that device, Wirecast would silently fail. Now we will nicely ask you if you still want to decline the device.
WIRE-16451: Updated Twitch and YouTube default bitrate presets to be 4Mbps to be more consistent with other destination defaults.
WIRE-16450: We also updated our destinations, so they default to x264 encoders.

WIRE-16419/16415: Removed a bunch of old, unused code. That’s all we’re going to say about that.
WIRE-16413: Now you can hot plug your X-keys device, and Wirecast will resume the connection seamlessly, rather than giving you the silent treatment.
WIRE-16406: On Mac, if you close your document while still streaming, the streaming indicator would remain in your Dock, confusingly indicating that a broadcast was still in progress. You now won’t see that. But really, not recommended to close your document while streaming.

WIRE-16383: Wirecast now properly detects if there is a network disconnection

WIRE-16240: Fixed some more instances where text wasn’t translated when viewing the app in languages other than English.
WIRE-16233: We updated the Create and Open document icons on Welcome to Wirecast window. They’re much more attractive now.

WIRE-16208: Fixed a UI annoyance on the Image Carousel where toggling the shuffle checkbox would cause the default image to flash briefly.
WIRE-16112: Fixed some more UI weirdness when switching background color from ‘None’ to ‘Solid’ on Text, Title, and Clocks.
WIRE-16094: We changed the behavior of the Windows Installer to force users to uninstall before downgrading.

WIRE-15969: Now you can switch between LinkedIn Live accounts on Windows, without having to change the Post type.

WIRE-15633: Multi-viewer on Mac can now identify each monitor, even when Wirecast is assigned to a specific Display in Mission Control.
WIRE-15521: Fixed a bug that caused NDI audio output to stutter – sometimes, and only after more than 2 hours.
WIRE-15466: Now, when creating a Vimeo stream with a custom stream name, the stream name no longer shows as "Untitled, and the actual name created is displayed.

Version 13.0.2
New & Improved
WIRE-16316 – Now you can set your LinkedIn Live broadcasts to be visible only to your first-degree connections. Like if you don’t want your boss’s boss to see your live stream. Now you can do that.
WIRE-14718 – We now correctly enable Wirecast Live captions in a YouTube event when setting that event to auto start.
Fixes
WIRE-16512 – If you tried to use Osprey 825e capture cards with Wirecast 13, you may have noticed they weren’t working very well, or at all. Try again – we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised...
WIRE-16505 – Sometimes good intentions backfire. A fix we made in 13.0.1 caused a crash when trying to load a saved Wirecast document with chroma key. It’s better now.
WIRE-16500 – Fixed an issue where changes made to Color Space or Dynamic Range for a video source were not, in the strictest of terms, accurate. (At all.)
WIRE-14923 – Fixed an error that caused audio to sometimes not play through the monitor unless the Mix Minus button was toggled, which one would not naturally think to do.
WIRE-14637 – Fixed a miscellaneous issue with a miscellaneous solution for streaming with Wirecast Restreaming to certain destinations.


Version 13.0.1
Fixes
WIRE-16454 – On Windows, smooth transitions between two shots that contain the same source is working again, after briefly trying to break free and take over the world.
WIRE-16445 – Main Shot Layers now remember their sizes when a saved document is reopened. A little Ginkgo Biloba did the trick.
WIRE-16442 – Also fixed was Wirecast’s ability to remember the Controller selected in Preferences.
WIRE-16440 – Recorded audio from Rendezvous guests was sometimes having dropouts or was garbled. Yo..cn ..ear..t.agn now.
WIRE-16479 – When an input format changes to a Magewell capture card, the audio will no longer stop working from that device.
WIRE-16432 – The YouTube’s Create Event Menu now correctly shows the dark mode color scheme. Handy for when you actually want to see the text.
WIRE-16425 – Sources from BlackMagic capture cards that don’t support automatic format detection were not being found when upgrading to version 13. We found them and helped them get back to where they belong. They’re fine. A little shaken, but basically fine.
WIRE-16240 – Sometimes certain areas of the app would appear in English when they shouldn’t. We’ve fixed that bit of linguistic imperialism.
WIRE-15656 – Fixed a crash when clicking the Output Menu when a BlackMagic Decklink 8K Pro capture card was installed.
WIRE-15461 – Now, when you use Desktop Presenter and check the capture audio box the playback should be clear without being choppy or skipping.


Version 13.0
New & Improved
WIRE-15060 – Main Shot Bin overhaul – We’ve done a complete refurbishment of our Main Shot Bin (that’s the layered area where you add all your shots.) We’re excited about a lot of under-the-hood improvements that reduced our code bloat, which you’ll have to trust us on. But what you will see is:
Greatly improved responsiveness when selecting and reordering shots, resizing windows and scrolling. It’s now smooth like buttah.
GPU accelerated live icons so you can see live previews of all your live shots, without hosing your system CPU.
Refreshed and decluttered user interface – like Feng Shui, but for software.
A bunch of other small but daring improvements like being able to reorder your master layers and more layer resizing options … oh, the power!
WIRE-16006 – Speaking of resizing layers: We’ve added a “Zoom Layers To' menu under 'Layout' so you can set all your master layers in one fell swoop. AND now you can resize all your layers at the same time by holding down the Shift or Alt (Win) or Shift, Option or Command (Mac) keys. PLUS! Extra added bonus: If you double click a layer divider, your layer will resize to its default height. Boom.
WIRE-12584 – You can now also drag & drop a shot by clicking anywhere in the shot, not just on the title.
WIRE-15939/WIRE-159940 – BlackMagic Designs and Direct Show source process separation – We have been working hard to improve the resiliency of Wirecast when dealing with sources. We have updated our code for sources, which for us makes it easier to maintain and support future source updates. You won’t see a lot of obvious changes yet in usability – but this helps us set the stage for future improvements.
WIRE-15590 – More efficiency – We're now allowing Blackmagic, DirectShow and Magewell sources to be more efficient – giving them access to GPU-accessible buffers for better performance.
WIRE-15588 – Added support for MJPEG video in DirectShow sources
WIRE-16368 – Stream to Facebook and other places simultaneously: Facebook recently changed their policy that allows you to stream to multiple destinations when also streaming to Facebook. We have enabled that in our application. So, stream away, anywhere!
WIRE-16394/WIRE-16261 – Facebook 1080p streaming: Now you can stream 1080p and up to 60fps to Facebook.
WIRE-15870 – Integrated Facebook Speed Test – New option in Facebook output settings "Optimize Connection" initiates a Facebook Speed Test to Facebook’s various regional ingestion servers to determine the best choice.
WIRE-16200 – And we now warn busy users that the Facebook Speed Test can take several minutes.
WIRE-14429 – PTZ control over NDI – This should allow all NDI PTZ cameras supporting movement controls over NDI to be fully usable in Wirecast. We have not tested every possible NDI PTZ device, but due to the standardization of NDI, all should work.
WIRE-15624 / WIRE-16114 – We also 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-16001 – MacOS Dark Mode – We’re going dark. Or at least you can choose to now.
WIRE-15989 – Larger user camera in Rendezvous – When entering the Rendezvous landing page (to enter the username), now the camera appears in the middle of the page so the user can see themselves more clearly than the small view in the top-right corner. Once the Rendezvous session starts, the camera jumps back to the top-right hand corner.
WIRE-15976 – LinkedIn Live Error Tracking – We improved the error tracking when streaming to LinkedIn Live.
WIRE-15968 – Preference Pane additions – We’ve added more options to the preference pane to give you even more decisions to make, including the look of your shot display, turning GPU Accelerated Live Icons to “Highest Framerate”, “Reduced Framerate” or “Disabled”, and other settings that give you ultimate omnipotence (at least within your own Wirecast document).
WIRE-15876 – Streamlined Buy link – Clicking on the 'Buy/Upgrade' item under 'Help' now opens the web store directly instead of taking you on a leisurely walk-about through another page or two. We’re saving you time.
WIRE-15933 – Warm and fuzzy analytics invite – We made our analytics opt-in pop-up warmer and fuzzier. We really hope you'll help us by opting in to analytics!
WIRE-16123 – You probably don’t care, but we've enlarged the Welcome Window to make room for in-app videos to play in that window.
WIRE-15922 – During the trial period, it is now easier for you to find and press a purchase button.

WIRE-16364 – Fixed an issue that caused audio underflow/popping sounds when using certain Elgato capture cards.

WIRE-16347 – Jetstream aka Streamzilla now shows up in Mac Output Settings without error.
WIRE-16328 – When you replace a shot with another source, it will not automatically display at a ridiculously large size.

WIRE-16279 – A minor display issue – our cute little Cloud icon was being cut off when enabling Restream and Captions. Now it’s not.
WIRE-16271 – Fixed an issue where most SD video (720x480) from Blackmagic and other devices were coming in with improper scaling.
WIRE-16270 – We have more carefully isolated our media handling from other processes to help prevent crashes.
WIRE-16250 – Fixing some long-standing ‘jank’ where audio mute buttons would display on video-only sources and video mute buttons on audio-only sources. Just more housecleaning.
WIRE-16241 – Continuing with some housecleaning – We've done some additional clean up in the source settings tab of the Shot Inspector so it will only display the appropriate controls for audio-only and video-only sources.
WIRE-16235 – The ISO filename no longer reverts to default after choosing a destination.
WIRE-16227 – We had some over-zealous capitalization on some messages we displayed. They are now proper English. The grammar police can rest easy.
WIRE-16217 – We added back the menu bar, which would mysteriously disappear when you opened the Advanced Rendezvous Audio Mixer on Mac.
WIRE-16214 – We spent way too much time debating whether it’s OK to display the copyright symbol as (C). No. And then we fixed it.
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.
WIRE-16209 – Fixed a memory leak that occurred while looping Chroma Keyed video.
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-16196 – Now when you modify the Source Properties of Blackmagic devices while ISO recording, your Preferences for the device will not become corrupt.
WIRE-16172 – We removed some unnecessary permissions for areas of Facebook that we weren’t actually using, and that have now been deprecated by Facebook anyway.
WIRE-16157 – Fixed an error that occurred on Windows when starting a Program Replay with a canvas size of 854x480.
WIRE-16156 – Related to the bug above – we fixed an indefinite hang that would occur on Windows when initiating Replay in conjunction with another Output while using an 854 x 480 Canvas.
WIRE-16142 – Now, on Mac, reducing your window size will not cause the Preview/Program windows to disappear.
WIRE-16125 – Fixed the Image Carousel – which is also fixed in 12.2.1, by the way.
WIRE-16119 – Grammarians rejoice! We’ve made more minor language changes to standardize the naming of items under the 'Window' menu.
WIRE-16111 – Fixed an odd bug that would cause an indefinite hang in certain documents when you hover the mouse over the Preview Window.
WIRE-16088 – Fixed a bug that didn’t let you assign a hotkey to a shot that's been duplicated.
WIRE-16082 – Instead of immediately starting camera / audio devices on startup, which wastes resources, we now wait until we actually need to use them to start them up.
WIRE-16079 – Fixed an annoying issue where dragging in unsupported media created a temporary shot which overlapped the clear layer icons.
WIRE-16074 – Squashed a crash that happens when opening a document from Explorer/Finder, completing the analytics dialog, then opening and closing the preferences.
WIRE-16058 – Fixed a licensing issue that, when deactivating a license and then immediately clicking Purchase, would open the Web Store instead of the more appropriate Product Catalog page.
WIRE-16057 – Almost not worth mentioning, because most people will never see this, but we re-aligned a logo on a page that comes up when a Wirecast Pro user clicks purchase. (All in the name of making every aspect of Wirecast supremely excellent.)
WIRE-16050 – When you upgrade from Wirecast One, your master layers will also upgrade accordingly. This wasn't happening, which could cause you to think you hadn't upgraded.
WIRE-16049 – Fixed a bug where setting audio channel to both L and R made you think you had to upgrade to Wirecast Pro. Sorry.
WIRE-16041 – Fixed numerous minor layout issues in media source properties panel.
WIRE-16027 – When you upgrade from Wirecast One, you'll now be able to access Wirecast Studio or Pro help and User Guides.
WIRE-16026 – Now, you can’t reorder a shot on a layer to be before the special Clear Layer shot.
WIRE-16014 – When you create a Twitter shot, it will no longer automatically be added to Layer 3. You now can choose.
WIRE-16004 – Fixed a rare crash that could occur when quitting and not saving a document.
WIRE-15993 – We re-enabled UI keyboard navigation on Mac, so you can again tab between controls.

plied to NDI or Webstream sources.

WIRE-15855 – Increased wait time and publish attempts for LinkedIn Live broadcasts, which could fail due to the latency introduced when using it with Wirecast Live Captions or Wirecast Restream.

Introducing Wirecast 6

Add more powerful production capabilities
Playlists
Queue a list of multiple videos, images, audio or live shots to play successively. This is great for adding commercial breaks, for streaming archived content during off hours, or it can even be used to rotate live camera views. Automate your broadcast workflow between media and live shots. A separate playlist window lets you easily create playlists and see what’s scheduled. Drag-and-drop new content, trim and edit recorded video, and set what happens upon completion of the playlist - return to your last live shot, loop content, hold last shot, or display current preview window.
Easy media editing
Easily trim and edit your recorded media (including replays) from the new preview window. With any piece of media you can custom configure its length, and set in and out points. Zoom in on timeline for more precise editing.
Replay (PRO)
Wirecast now lets you capture and replay clips of your live production. Great for sporting events or any live show where you want to go back and reshow a portion of the broadcast. During a live show, simply click the “replay” button to capture a clip and add it to a master layer. When replaying, you can slow it down, speed it up, or scrub across the entire clip to find the exact point you want to show. You can also suppress audio or add another audio track and set up a template for your Replay shots. Easily create highlight reels by combining Replay with Playlists.
Expand your content sources
COMING SOON! iOS Sources
Wirecast 6 integrates with a new, free iOS app—WirecastCam. Download the app and use any iPhone (4S or newer) or iPad on your Wifi network as an ingest source into Wirecast. Great for adding more camera sources or user-generated content to your live broadcasts.
NewBlueFX titler integration from Source Settings
Create infinite title styles for lower thirds quickly and simply with the GPU-accelerated NewBlue Titler Pro for Wirecast.

Wirecast 4.3 Now Available

Telestream is pleased to announce the release of Wirecast 4.3 software. This free update
adds even more sophisticated capabilities for streaming mutlicamera live events.
Highlights include:
Live Thumbnails
The new live thumbnail feature in Wirecast 4.3 enables real-time monitoring of all live source
shots in the shot window. This allows users to see exactly what's happening on each live
input at any point in time, making the process of switching between multiple live cameras
faster and more manageable.
Countdown clock
Wirecast 4.3 adds a countdown clock under the Live Broadcast window whenever an
imported video clip is playing. When users switch to a recorded video, the countdown clock
will display the remaining time of that video, making it easier to prepare for the next switch.
Teradek integration
Live event broadcasting just got easier. Teradek's new Stream Reader* plugin for Wirecast
allows Cube, Brik, and Bond users to import live HD video directly into Telestream's software
platform.
Stream Reader is a powerful tool for live productions that use local or remote IP video feeds.
This means that Teradek users can pull low latency video into Wirecast straight from their
encoder or a Sputnik Server.
Stream Reader also offers a number of features to help you get the most out of a Wirecast
workflow, including adjustable options for jitter buffer and lip synchronization across several
Teradek video sources. To ensure your production is always in sync, the special
Synchronization Mode automatically determines and applies the optimal buffer delay to your
video feeds.
