Setting Up ATEM with Titler Live

Titler Live supports a unique integration with Blackmagic Design's ATEM switcher hardware devices.

  1. Once you have successfully connected your ATEM to Titler live, the ATEM Settings menu option will appear when opening the Settings at the top of the window.

The integrations supported by Titler Live for ATEM devices are the following:

  2. Use the drop down menu next to the ATEM Transition Effect names to select a transition from the playlist to pair with the ATEM Transition Effect.

Note: When designing a new transition from the designer tool, rename the orange region on the elastic region named "Pause" to "Cut"; so that new transition is recognized as a transition by Titler Live. 

Important! Send HDMI to Upstream Keyer must be enabled for the Transitions be used as an overlay. For details, please see Add animated graphics to ATEM productions

 

Capturing Graphics to use as Stills from ATEM

Titler Live's ATEM Settings provides an interface for assigning a range of playlist graphics to be converted into stills that can be automatically played through your ATEM's downstream key. Follow the steps below and watch this video for instructions. 

  1. Enable Send Live Titles to ATEM Downstream Keyer.
  2. Determine the range of graphics that are to be converted to stills. First ATEM Still to use and Last ATEM Still to use establish the range of graphics relative to the number of graphics in the playlist within Titler Live. 
  3. Once the range of graphics has been determined, Click OK.
  4. The Media bin from ATEM Software Control will automatically populate with the Stills that have been converted from the selected graphics.
  5. Playing the graphics from the Titler Live playlist will automatically overlay them on the ATEM through the Downstream Key.Media_Bin.PNG

Note: The Media graphic will always be updated to use the graphic that is being played from Titler Live.

Important! If a Picture in Picture graphic is set to be captured for Stills it may cause some performance issues with the ATEM video feed.
