Control PIP - via Atem Interface

I have a situation where the background is static however my pip source is changing and going full screen and back to window.      I know this can be done via the key source however is there a way to switch this control to the main atem interface.    Is there a way to set the static background and have the interface control the PIP without using the key source.  

I dont have the supersource option.

Hi, Not shure exctly which

Hi,

Not shure exctly which ATEM model you have or which interface you are refering to (hardware or software) but I have managed to do something that sounds similar with the TVS HD which would also work with the 1 M/E e.g. no super source required (don't know about the Production Studio 4K).

Currently trying with the ATEM Television Studio HD.    I was talking about the software contol.      Could you give some direction on who you implemented this?

How to implement

Hi,

Implemented by setting the following:

Program set to Media Player 1 to provide the background

Upstream Keyer set to DVE (Paletts tab), source of DVE set to input containg the PiP content.

Set the "Run to infinite:" to minimized (4 arrows pointing to centre at the bottom of the DVE Pallete section)

In Next Transition, put Key 1 on air, then in Palletes - click Run To Full (you can define other widow sizes and save these to preset A or B)

 

Happy to make another video if you get lost...

I have done all that.   What

I have done all that.  

What I would like to do is have the Program control the PIP and the Upstream Keyer control the background.    The background will never change where as the PIP will hence why I would like the program/preview functionality to control the PIP instead.     Can this be done without the Super Source?

From what I can see it is not possible, but I have not done alot with the Atems.

You can't use the program bus

You can't use the program bus for the PiP source. You have to change the USK DVE Fill Source.

Easy to do with ATEM macros. Create a macro for each source you want to use. Step 1 would be setting the Preview Source, Step 2 is a User Wait Pause, step 3 set the DVE File Source.

Using scripting or an Arduino would provide a solution more like preview/program CUT. You would have a "PiP Cut" button to take what ever was on preview and set it to the USK DVE Fill Source. This could be done with a hot key on your keyboard and a PowerShell or JustMacros script (this is how most of us automate the ATEM).
