Pandoras Box 6.1.3

There is a new version available in the Download-Center (please remember to log-in before using the link): ... 0/file-330

Dear customers,

we're happy to share the new Pandoras Box V6.1.3 with you.

This version comes with many improvements of the user interface and enhanced functionality for Projector Recalibration along with some bug fixes.

Some highlights are:

• Win 10 (version 1809) and above can be used again in dark skin mode.
• We have introduced snapping functionality for containers and key frames to better and easier align sequence elements.
• When dragging a container, you will now see the relative time of its movement in a popup next to your cursor.
• You can now start projects as sync session directly from the startup menu.
• Using Widget Designer 6.1.0 you can use CMSH-Warp-files and the NET Link fiber inputs to automatically recalibrate shifted projectors.
• Touch events now work for CEF browser as well.
• New Art-Net monitor with enhanced overview of all active universes
• Updated tools to work with Win10 again

This version is intended to be the last 32-bit release before we transition to a stronger foundation, based on a 64-bit environment. While we had originally planned to phase out Windows XP with this release, an unexpected issue we encountered with a third‐party component left us no choice but to phase it out sooner.
As a result, Pandoras Box V6.1.1 was the last release to support Windows XP operating systems. We apologize for any possible inconvenience this may cause.

Please note that a new dongle driver is being installed during the installation. It is included in the installer but you can also download it here: ... 8/file-317
