Pixotope 23.4.0: Explore the Latest in Virtual Production Innovation

We are introducing our newest iteration of Pixotope, future-proofing our systems to bring you safely into 2024.



Reliability and speed are paramount to a real-time virtual production system. With the ever-growing demands on and changes to both hardware and software, there is no time for us to stand still. We have rewritten our videoIO service from the ground up, improving its reliability and preparing it for the future to come.
You can now also get Timecode from LTC without needing a camera routed as well as setting a custom resolution when outputting to the GPU. And the SMPTE Color range can now also be set.



Reference the real

Virtual production is all about merging the real and the virtual. To do this perfectly, you need to reference the real world inside the virtual one. For XR productions we had added the Digital Twin. For VS, we are now introducing the Chroma Screen actor. Easily recreate the green screen in your level using a couple of parameters or your own geometry.

Update the unreal

Always up-to-date, that is what we are. We have updated our Engine to include the latest Unreal version 5.3.2 hotfixes. And once again, we cleaned the house and removed a bunch of no-longer-used settings from Pixotope World Settings.



Focusing on the future we have deprecated DX11.

From this release on only DX12 is supported.


Asset Hub



Sync files with history

Oh no, what have I done? History and context are important. Not just remembering it, but even more so being able to act upon it. To not forget the past, we added both the ability to add comments before pushing, and the ability to see all the previously pulled changes. And to become proactive you are now able to bring old changes back to the future. Yes, you heard right, McFly!
Speaking of the future. For changes others have made, you previously were only able to pull all changes at once. Now you can not only see the individually pushed changes but also decide to just pull changes up to a specific one.

Save space and time

Previously, the Asset Hub had to recreate its cache for every new install, wasting your time and disk space. We have now put an end to that and moved the cache into a centralized location making new installations more efficient.




We show off

The process of creating a new show has gotten easier, including creating a show without a linked project. This way, if the client machine has the original project, you don't need to link a dummy project anymore. The Launch, Status, and Syncing panels are now more responsive improving the experience for mobile devices. So how about switching or syncing levels from your phone while on set? Additionally, launching a level now shows the progress in the status bar. Isn't that convenient?

Stay safe, stay encrypted

Are you setting up a server on the cloud, or do you just want to protect your Data hub traffic? We have added the ability to encrypt your Data hub traffic, with an easy way to set it all up. Just enable encryption on your server machine and distribute the generated pxkeys file to all connecting machines!


Video Keyer

After initializing your key, you could of course open your annotation view in a separate window and keep it around. However, in case you have limited screen estate, we are now persisting the captured image and its strokes allowing you to go back and forth between the views and add more strokes at a later stage if needed.


Control panel

Being able to control 2 values at the same time using the x and y axis of a pad is now possible with the new 2D pad widget. Control 2 color or transform channels, or any 2 values you like.
