A STORM is growing...
As we move closer to STORM v1 your feedback is more important than ever.
With your help we have addressed over 800 bugs and implemented over 300 features.
We know our work is not yet done and we welcome your input as we craft STORM to meet the needs of your digital workflow.
Many of STORM beta 8's new features and enhancements are listed below. Take a look at the release notes to find out more.
IMPORTANT: Please read the Release Notes available on the Foundry's website to see the issues that this latest build addresses.
STORM assists RED Digital Camera workflows. It's quick and easy to navigate allowing producers, directors and editors to view takes in high resolution without interruption or delay.
We’re taking the unusual step of making the STORM beta publicly available because we want to get feedback from the widest audience possible. We want to know how STORM fares in different production environments and to hear your views.
So...try it, break it , tell us what's missing and help us build a great product.
NB: This is a beta release and, therefore, not perfect. Please be cautious and don't rely upon it in production.
If you have a Red Rocket card you WILL need to update the Drivers and Firmware to v1.3.5c! If you don't, the card will not be detected. If you choose not to upgrade the Drivers and Firmware you can continue to use Storm Software Mode.
We're very keen to hear your feedback.
Disclaimer: Exercise caution if you are currently using your machine for a production!
