Flipside Update #25 - Multi-monitor desktop mirror, microphone input setting, and more

- by Lux

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.

Desktop mirror multi-monitor support, embedding in custom sets

The desktop mirror feature that lets you bring your desktop view into Flipside now supports multiple monitors via a setting in the General settings tab.

It can also now be embedded directly into your custom sets using the ScreenElement component. This means you can do things like build a computer into your set whose screen reflects what your actual desktop is showing. Pretty neat stuff!

Note: You'll need to update to the latest version of the Creator Tools to see the desktop mirror option in ScreenElement.

Switch microphone inputs in the General settings menu

Tired of restarting Flipside to switch microphone input devices? Now you can switch in-app by clicking on the settings icon on the bottom of the desktop camera switcher, going to the General settings tab, and selecting your Microphone Input Device from the list. Change should happen automatically when you select a new one, and your preferences will be remembered for next time!

Bloom filter

We've added a setting to enable our first filter effect, Bloom. You'll find it under the settings icon in the desktop camera switcher under the Output tab, alongside the OBS settings.

Bloom Off
Bloom On

Use the slider to compare a shot from our Winter Cabin set with bloom on and off.
