ARRI Announces Upgrade For Stellar Lighting Control

ARRI has announced Stellar 1.5, the company’s intelligent app for professional lighting control. 

ARRI said new features for the Stellar upgrade allow for more collaboration and exchange between teams and devices. Live Sync Beta, sharing projects, scenes, favorites and iCloud Backup are available.

Introduced in 2018, Stellar is the final link in a complete ecosystem of ARRI advanced lighting control products making workflows on set faster, easier and more intuitive.

Live Sync Beta in Stellar 1.5 enables real time collaboration between Stellar on separate devices. Allowing multiple users to work on the same project and scene simultaneously, Live Sync now supports the ability to work collaboratively on the same file.

Users can adjust the same fixture or different fixtures while the changes are synced in the background as they occur. The setup process is easy, straight forward and can be accomplished in minutes.

Stellar 1.5 allows for the export and import of projects and scenes. Exporting can be accomplished by sending a project or scene to the cloud, by sharing wirelessly between devices, by emailing or messaging or by using other methods of sharing work. Exporting also allows the user to backup their project or scene to a specified destination.

It is also possible to share color favorites. Colors or palettes of color can be exported or imported in Stellar 1.5 by clicking the three dots menu in the top right corner of the favorites window.

With Stellar 1.5 on iOS, it is possible to back up all projects, scenes and favorites to iCloud. This sync happens automatically and instantly, allowing for the same files to be shared across multiple devices using the same iCloud account. Projects that have been initiated on an iPhone are now automatically backed up and ready for use on an iPad or vice versa.
