Breaking Changes

Non Breaking Changes

  • Editor/Web: Fix an issue where the context.group passed to the onUpload callback doesn't reflect the actual group ID where the file is being uploaded.

Breaking Changes

  • Engine: APIs that perform edits now throw errors if the corresponding scopes are not available (either globally or on the block). In order to disable these checks in all APIs, call setSettingBool('checkScopesInAPIs', false). Otherwise, you must use the isAllowedByScope API to check whether all required scopes are available before calling APIs.

Non Breaking Changes

  • Editor: Text elements with auto-height or auto-width can now be changed in height and width with the resize handles. The mode will switch to fixed-width.
  • Editor/Web: Add document colors library to color panel

Fonts

  • Engine: Added BlockAPI.canToggleBoldFont and BlockAPI.canToggleItalicFont that return whether the specified range of a given text block can be toggled between a bold and normal weight or a normal and italic style, based on whether the corresponding font is part of the typeface that is currently used by the text block.
  • Engine: Added BlockAPI.toggleBoldFont to toggle a text block between the normal and bold fonts of its current typeface.
  • Engine: Added BlockAPI.toggleItalicFont to toggle a text block between the non-italic and italic fonts of its current typeface.
  • Engine: Added BlockAPI.setFont to allow the font of a text block to be changed.

  • Engine: Changed the FontWeight string Light to light to be consistent with the other enum cases.
  • Engine: Moved the definition of font assets from extension packs to asset sources.
  • Editor: Deprecated the registration of custom fonts via the editor configuration. Create a custom asset source instead and define the meta.typeface object of each typeface asset. A typeface consists of a name (the font family name) and a list of all fonts that belong to this typeface.
  • Engine: Replaced extension packs used by the Java bindings with asset sources. You now have to provide JSON strings containing the asset source definitions when initializing the CESDK Java instance. See the updated Java binding example app README for more details.

  • Editor: A new ui.elements.libraries.backgroundTrackLibraryEntries configuration option which allows to configure which library entries should be shown when opening and insert library panel for background clips in video mode.
  • Engine: Improve audio support for QuickTime video files.

Breaking Changes

  • Editor: The distributed file for the CE.SDK (@cesdk/cesdk-js package on npm) has changed from the CommonJS to the ECMAScript Module format. This means:

    • If you've been using the CE.SDK from your own node_modules folder in combination with a bundler, nothing should change for you. The bundler will process the module as before.

    • If you were loading our CDN version directly into your web page, and then accessing the CreativeEditorSDK global variable, we instead recommend to either change your script to ECMAScript module, or use the import() function to load the CreativeEditorSDK:

      <script type="module">
      import CreativeEditorSDK from 'https://cdn.img.ly/packages/imgly/cesdk-js/1.19.0/index.js';
      await CreativeEditorSDK.create('#container');
      // ...your code
      </script>
      <script>
      import('https://cdn.img.ly/packages/imgly/cesdk-js/1.19.0/index.js').then(
      async ({ default: CreativeEditorSDK }) => {
      await CreativeEditorSDK.create('#container');
      // ...your code
      }
      );
      </script>
  • Engine: Fixed visual glitches in the following effects: "Pixelize", "Radial Pixel", and "Dot Pattern"

  • Engine: We've added a new feature called sourceSet to image fills. This lets you use a group of images, each with different sizes, to draw the image. The engine will pick the best size and load it as needed. You can learn more about this in the guide. Remember, if you have a fileImageURI, the sourceSet will take precedence. If your code changes the imageFileURI, you need to update it to work with the sourceSet as well.

  • Editor: We've updated our Unsplash and Demo sources. They now come with a full set of images in different sizes. This means that any block you create using an image from these sources will automatically have its sourceSet property populated.

Non Breaking Changes

  • Engine: Exported TGA images now include an alpha channel.
  • Editor: Assets from the asset library can now be dragged on the canvas to apply the asset
  • Editor/Web: Fix potentially corrupted video export.

  • Editor: CanvasMenu component border color uses token --ubq-border-default and has box shadow added.
  • Editor/Engine: Using a web worker for video exports
  • Engine: Added mousewheel support The CreativeEngine canvas now supports mouse wheel events on the canvas to scroll and zoom the scene. The CreativeEngine instance gained a new method, setWheelEventTarget, which can be used to reinstall the event listener on another DOM element. This can be useful for situations where custom DOM elments are positioned on top of the canvas. Two engine settings have been added to enable/disable scrolling and zooming: mouse/enableZoom and mouse/enableScroll, both default to true.
  • Engine: Removed arbitrary strings for engine settings from the TypeScript definitions. Passing arbitrary strings to methods such as setSettingBool or setSettingString was never actually supported. The types have been adjusted to reflect that fact.
  • Editor/Engine: The Typescript types of the getSetting/setSetting methods in the EditorAPI have been made more strict:
    • Previously, Typescript allowed arbitrary strings as keys, which would have led to an error at runtime. These have been removed.
    • Support for prefixing settings keys with ubq:// will be removed in a future version. The function signatures have been updates to provide a deprecation warning.
    • A few boolean settings not meant for public use have been removed.
  • Engine: Add support XAVC videos.
  • Engine/Editor: Add missing settings to the Typescript type definitions in the EditorAPI.

Check our migration guide for more details on the changes.

Breaking Changes

  • The editor now sets all scopes directly for the selected target block. (Previously, the scope content/replace was set for the associated fill block instead.)
  • Use of the following scopes is being deprecated in favor of new, more granular scopes:
    • content/replace - Use a combination of fill/change and text/edit instead.
    • design/arrange - Use a combination of layer/move, layer/resize, layer/flip, and layer/rotate instead.

      • scope.layer.blendMode
      • scope.layer.opacity
      • scope.shape.change
      • scope.stroke.change
      • scope.text.character
      • scope.text.edit
  • Editor: Switched to using the new Graphic block for images, videos, shapes, etc… for a more unified experience across different design elements
  • Editor: Introduced a new Content Fill Inspector that allows switching the fill of Graphic blocks between video, image, and color

Old scenes are automatically migrated when they get loaded. For a full list and detailed description of how to adapt to these changes, check out our documentation
  • Engine: Added optional shapeType, fillType and kind keys to our asset definitions. Fill type ids may not be set as the value of the blockType property any more. E.g. in order to create a video asset, blockType should now be set to //ly.img.ubq/graphic and fillType should be set to //ly.img.ubq/fill/video.
  • Engine/Web: Introduced new union types:
    • DesignBlockTypesShorthand, DesignBlockTypesLonghand, DesignBlockTypes for top-level design blocks.
    • ShapeTypesShorthand, ShapeTypesLonghand, ShapeTypes for shape blocks.

The CreativeEngine instance gained a new method, setWheelEventTarget, which can be used to reinstall the event listener on another DOM element. This can be useful for situations where custom DOM elments are positioned on top of the canvas. Two engine settings have been added to enable/disable scrolling and zooming: mouse/enableZoom and mouse/enableScroll, both default to true.
  • Engine: Removed arbitrary strings for engine settings from the TypeScript definitions. Passing arbitrary strings to methods such as setSettingBool or setSettingString was never actually supported. The types have been adjusted to reflect that fact.

Breaking Changes

⚠️ Starting with v1.10.0 we no longer ship our default assets within the assets/extensions folder. Instead, both engine and UIs now offer convenience addDefaultAssetSources endpoints, that selectively register asset sources, that serve our default assets. If you're actively using the example assets we shipped before v1.10.0, check the Serving Assets Guide for your target platform.

⚠️ Image uploads are no longer stored in the scene and will not reappear upon scene load. To offer specific assets in your editor, configure and add an asset source containing the desired assets.

Asset Management

  • CESDK: Removed presets configuration for images (presets.images). Please use the local asset sources to add single images, e.g. with AssetAPI#addAssetToSource.
  • UBQ: The applyAsset callbacks and defaultApplyAsset API now return an optional design block id in their callback if they created a new block
  • UBQ: Removed the required thumbUri and size properties from AssetDefinition and AssetResult. They are now stored under the thumbUri, width and height keys in the meta property dictionary
  • UBQ: Values of the blockType asset meta property must now be design block type ids (e.g. //ly.img.ubq/image)
  • CESDK: Removed the AssetElement, ImageElement, VideoElement and AudioElement types and replaced them with AssetDefinition
  • CESDK: The onUpload callback must now return an instance of AssetDefinition
  • UBQ: Renamed default upload source for images (ly.img.upload) to ly.img.image.upload to match naming of video and audio upload sources.
  • UBQ: Upload asset sources and library entries for video and audio were added to the default configuration from addDefaultAssetSources. If you have added these sources manually (like mentioned in our docs) you can remove it now.

General

  • CESDK: Fix text-alignment center and bottom not working properly since v1.5.0 for the case when a fixed frame size was used and the text exceeded the frame. This can cause text elements with a fixed frame and center or bottom text alignment, where the text exceeds the frame, to render differently than before.

APIs & Properties

  • UBQ: Renamed Audio's and VideoFill's specific looping, volume, and muted properties to share a common playback prefix:
    • 'fill/video/looping' and 'audio/looping' are now 'playback/looping'

    • 'fill/video/muted' and 'audio/muted' are now 'playback/muted'
  • UBQ: Deprecated the camera/clearColor property and replaced it with a global clearColor setting.

    • Deprecated isFillColorEnabled, use isFillEnabled instead.
    • Deprecated setFillType and setFillGradientType, use createFill, e.g., with type 'color' and then apply the fill block with setFill to the block instead. If the block has a fill, it should be removed with getFill and destroy.
    • Deprecated getFillType and getFillGradientType, query block.getEnum(id, 'fill/type') and block.getEnum(id, 'fill/gradient/type') instead instead
    • Deprecated add/removeFillGradientColorStop and get/setFillGradientColorStops.
    • Deprecated get/setFillGradientControlPointX/Y, use block.getFloat(fill, keypath) and block.setFloat(fill, keypath, value) with key paths 'fill/gradient/linear/startPointX/Y', 'fill/gradient/radial/centerPointX/Y', and 'fill/gradient/conical/centerPointX/Y' instead.
    • Deprecated get/setFillGradientRadius, use block.getFloat(fill, 'fill/gradient/radial/radius') and block.setFloat(fill, 'fill/gradient/radial/radius', value) instead."

Breaking Changes

  • UBQ: Migrate to flexbox-based layouting
    • designElements are now serialized with base_props_version 6
    • block_position is now a struct with four values: json "block_position": { "version": 1, "left": { "version": 1, "unit": 1, "value": 18.0 }, "top": { "version": 1, "unit": 1, "value": 16.5 }, "right": { "version": 1, "unit": 0, "value": 0.0 }, "bottom": { "version": 1, "unit": 0, "value": 0.0 } }
      • Each value is a LayoutValue, where unit encodes whether it is an undefined, design unit, percent or auto
      • The example is therefore positioned 18 design units from the left & 16.5 design units from the top, right and bottom are undefined and therefore ignored
    • block_dimensions is now block_size: json "block_size": { "version": 1, "width": { "version": 1, "unit": 1, "value": 43.08553695678711 }, "height": { "version": 1, "unit": 1, "value": 64.61538696289063 } }
