This is the production version of BrightAuthor for the new model lines. Note that this version, along with 126.96.36.199, are not intended for use with XDx30, HDx20, or 4K models. A new version of BrightAuthor that supports these models along with the XDx32, HDx22, and LSx22 will be available soon.
Among several new features, this version includes Remote Snapshot, which can be enabled during the unit setup process. Currently, Remote Snapshot is only available for players that are set up for Local File Networking. This version also supports seamless looping of synchronized (BrightWall) videos.
This version includes the Presentation Tree View feature, which presents the entire presentation as a descriptive, expandable tree of events and transitions. There are also numerous UI improvements related to manual scaling and automated positioning of windows and dialogues in BrightAuthor.
