I did a job this week where we pulled cameras into a hardware switcher and then used mimoLive for graphics/DVE/keying/multiview.
It was really nice to have both a traditional flip-flop video switcher for camera sources (I’ve really missed the preview/take workflow for camera switching) but still have all the power of mimoLive for graphics/etc.
I’d like to be able retain this behaviour in smaller productions where I’m doing everything in-the-box.
Can somebody who knows more than me about the Quartz layer internals explain if it’d be possible to implement a flip-flop video switcher as a mimoLive layer?
I’d imagine that this would make for a nicer experience for remote control surfaces, too - instead of a “CUT” and “TRANS” button for every input, having a bunch of “SELECT” buttons and then a pair of “CUT/TRANS” would mirror what a lot of people are used to from traditional switchers.
