What’s New

Version 4.09

New Features:
• Selecting the attribute range by tapping the centre of a bank encoder in the tablet Focus Window has been extended from the bottom two encoders to all encoders. (Requires MagicQ v1.8.7.6).
• Force Tablet Mode has been replaced by Large Screen Mode and now allows the mode to be toggled on both small and large screen devices.
• A 'Display Views on MagicQ' settings has been added. When enabled, Win views displayed will also be displayed in MagicQ.

Bug Fixes:
The Enc and Picker buttons on the Focus Window on the tablet were not being enabled for colour attributes for some lights (eg Arri SkyPanel). This is now fixed. #0026823
When using the Force Tablet Mode on a small screen device the wrong Focus Window encoders will be displayed when the group is changed on MagicQ. This is now fixed. #0026823
8bit fixtures could not be adjusted from the app when Fine was enabled. The 'Fine' button has now been replaced by the 'Shift (Fine)' button, replicating its use in MagicQ to set Fine control whilst still allowing 8bit fixture adjustment. (Requires MagicQ v1.9.0.4) #0015779

Two versions

I have great respect for the fact that upon launching this new version, you made it a second App so as to not exclude users on iOS 4.0.

That said, it might be worth writing in the description of the old version, that there's a newer version out that has slightly higher system requirements. Because I wasn't sure if this was official to begin with.

Great app as expected however :)

Overdue thank you!

I felt I should offer my thanks. I've been using this app on phone and iPad for years now. It's sometimes "crashy" but more often than not it works and makes focusing a more pleasant experience. The remote access to the execute window is an awesome feature as well.

Thank you.
