Permanent ads support

  • Permanent ad positions and scales are now stored per project and re-applied when switching between projects.

Fixed Issues from Previous Versions

The following issues have been fixed compared to previous versions of Viz Arena:

  • Video could unexpectedly switch from live to replay mode after triggering certain effects.
  • Magnifier size was not re-applied when switching between effects.
  • Magnifier did not get triggered if the current calibration was invalid.
