¡Hola a todos!
Quiero saber como dejar mi camara virtual (xSplit) como camara principal, ya que al poner un clip de video, ésta desaparece. Gracias! Saludos desde Chile.

In Extensions (in settings), add the Broadcaster GFX pad control.
Then you can easily toggle views and make it as you want .. hopefully ;-)

Hi, first of all I want to thank Dj in Norway for such a great themes for the broadcast GFX

Fiddling around with the message boxes didn't work as I wanted it to be seen so I made images instead to put in as icons in the main default image and deleted all section of message box in the XML

I was juggeling around to see what Deck 3 option could do and put a shader on as background and of course the default image where gone and my social links Icons.

Not a XML writer but know a little of css and html.
Is there a easy way just to put a code referring to a image instead of a text? It doesn't need to have any function just display as the default icons do

<panel class="social" x="+0" y="+0" image="facebook.png" align="left"

Can use the skin xml <visual> for that..

where you set down or off x/y coordinates to the attached image file and the position of your image parts

So what will a image string code look like ?

I can do the positioning but I don't find any info how to get started and how to place an image into the XML

Help is really appreciated

Place your image part(s), on the attached image file of the skin (inside the zip or its folder)

The skin XML "loads" this image file in the first line of the XML
 <skin .....     image=" ( the image file in the zip/folder) " >

And to show a PART of the image file to display somewhere in the skin, you can for example use <visual>

<visual name="my custom image thingy">
<size width="" height=""> /* How big is the image part you want to display */
<pos x="" y=""> /* Give the position of where to display the image on screen */
<off x="" y=""> /* Coordinates for where the image is on the skin image file */

Yeah, understand that but..

<skin name="Broadcaster GFX :: Neon" version="8" width="1920" height="1080" breakline="60" breaklineV="950" breaklineV2="1075" comment="Dual source for broadcast, slideshow background" author="DIN (Dj-In-Norway)" image="default-mirror.png" preview="preview.jpg">

There is the image for the theme (Skin)

All I wanna do is put in an image instead of
<group name="text_box1" x="+40" y="+0">
<panel visible="get_var '@$messagebox1' & param_equal '' ? yes : no">
<panel class="social" x="+0" y="+0" align="left" action="get_text `get_var '@$facebook'`" visible="get_var '@$facebook' & not_ param_equal" />
<panel class="social" x="+0" y="+0" align="left" text="StudioInSkye" visible="get_var '@$facebook' & param_equal ''" />
<panel visible="get_var '@$messagebox1' & not param_equal '' ? yes : no">
<panel class="customtext" x="+0" y="+0" align="left" action="get_var '@$messagebox1'"/>

and continue with image 2, 3, and 4 instead of @$messagebox1 to 4
So when background.png in this case default-mirror.png is replaced with Deck 3 Shader the XML provides the 4 images under the SongInfo Bar

In HTML it would look like this (Sort of)

<td width="25%"><img src="image1.png" align="center"></td>
<td width="25%"><img src="image2.png" align="center"></td>
<td width="25%"><img src="image3.png" align="center"></td>
<td width="25%"><img src="image4.png" align="center"></td>

All images are in the folder.

See what I mean? It is tough to explain and I'm sorry for any inconvenience.
I'm grateful for taking your time

Thats not how VirtualDJ skin engine work :)

image1.png, image2.png, image3.png, image4.png in your example, you would need to add to the skin image file (the one referenced in the first <skin> xml tag, aka image="default-mirror.png" )

In other words, all the image elements / resources you want to use, are in the same image file

As mentioned in first paragraph here:

Posted Thu 11 Mar 21 @ 4:30 pm
Ah, now I get it. =)

So it the reason why you have hidden the icons here and you use position, visible to show them in different areas.

Will do my research and try to understand the documentation. Even if I think that it is hard without a tutorial.

Thanx again for quick reply's

Posted Thu 11 Mar 21 @ 5:51 pm
yes exactly ;-) thats how it works.. .

All images parts are in the image file.
And you use <visual> (or other xml elements depending on what you want) to show parts of the image file

In the Camera Effect settings, try change resolution...
Might even show RBG and ycbr or something like that.. .

See if there are options that makes it work better ;-)

This result doesn't change even if I change the camera parameters, but the camera image doesn't blink when the 2xCAM button is turned on. However, in this case, the image of the video file cannot appear.

Might have to turn off the camera first, before changing resolution..
Worth at try..

And does same happen if you dont apply opacity etc?

I solved it when I turned on the camera at Video Effect.

Posted Tue 23 Mar 21 @ 4:08 pm
ah .. good good ;-)
Not sure why it blinked if activated on deck instead though..
Will try some here

Can everybody switch cameras for this video effect?

Posted Wed 14 Apr 21 @ 3:59 pm

IMO we shouldn't need to switch to dual deck video mixing and assign cameras to decks, just to change from one camera to another.

Atomix needs to make it easier in this current climate of streaming and using multiple cameras.

A good start would be the ability to assign a command to a pad or custom button, so we could select a camera by name. No need to open camera settings and turn a knob.
