Saving Preset Icons

The most common use case for running MixEffect and Companion is to run SuperSource presets from a Stream Deck. MixEffect makes it easy to download a thumbnail of a preset that you can upload to Companion.

  1. From the MixEffect Home, tap SuperSource.

  2. Tap View All in the upper-right.

  3. Long-press on the desired preset.

  4. In the menu that appears, tap Save Preset Icon.

  5. Choose Companion (73x41).

  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for other presets.

If you are using this feature for the first time, a prompt from iOS will appear asking you for permission to access your Photos Library. If you décline permission, you must enable it in iOS Settings > MixEffect > Photos > Add Photos Only.

After a moment, the thumbnail will be saved to your Photos Library.

  1. Go to Photos.

  2. Select the preset thumbnail or thumbnails.

  3. Tap Share.

  4. Send the file to your computer running Companion. AirDrop works great.

  5. Add the thumbnail to your buttons in Companion.

You can also export multiple preset thumbnails at a time by going into List mode on the View All Presets page:

  1. Tap Edit.

  2. Select the presets you wish to export.

  3. Tap the photo icon in the export bar.

  4. Choose your export size.

After a few moments, your thumbnails will have been added to your Photo Library.
