Please note: This update is only available for those who are part of our multiplayer beta. If you're looking to collaborate on a show or just want some of the other goodies, sign up for the multiplayer beta here. We're working hard to quickly get these updates back into the general release branch so everyone can enjoy them, but that's still an update or two away.
Go invisible with Ghost Mode
You'll find our new Ghost Mode button on both the desktop camera switcher or the in-VR camera switcher. This will make your character invisible so you can play director without getting in the way of the shot, or animate props by grabbing them and moving them around. Ghost Mode also has the ability to move the world around and scale it up or down by grabbing it with one or two hands, just like Builder Mode.
Clearing sets got a little safer
It takes work to get a set setup exactly how you like, and it should be hard to accidentally undo all that work. That's why we've added a confirmation step whenever you use the "Clear All" and "Reset to Original" buttons on the underside of the Sets palette.
Additional bug fixes and improvements
We've also made lots of smaller improvements throughout the app. These include:
Added whitelist of components allowed to be used on sets and characters.
Improved foot distance calculation to fix bow-leggedness.
Fixed cases where imported props that were deleted online could cause a set to fail to load
Fixed "clear all" and "reset to original" on sets over multiplayer
Improved error handling when a sky is not found
Auto-retries multiplayer connections if disconnected unintentionally
Clear sent invites when you leave Flipside to prevent stale invites being received
Fixed order of notifications so most recent invites appear at the top and new ones appear at the top as well
Fixed recalling menu with the right hand on Vive returning it near the left hand
Disabled menu show/hide on Oculus running through Steam so teleprompter controls can be used
Handheld camera remembers its direction between uses
Active camera light working over multiplayer
Fixed issue with 360 video uploads generating black previews and thumbnails
Fixed issue preventing interactions from recording on larger sets
Fixed issue with OBS settings storage
Fixed issue with changing sets with a recording inserted causing the new set not to fully load
Fixed Twitch chat panel being ungrabbable and made in-app instructions clearer
Moved Twitch chat panel to UI layer like the other Show Tools
Fixed issue with unloading a recording cartridge while still loading
