Set All Settings and Recording Macros

When you are recording a macro, the Set All Settings button will appear at the bottom of the page. Tap to record all settings for the selected transition into the macro.


In MixEffect 1.4.0, an Automations link appears at the bottom of the Transitions section or sheet. You can use this to quickly create a Transition preset for the current keyer selected.

NOTE: This option will only appear if you have Enable Automations active in MixEffect Settings and if you have Enable Shortcuts or Enable OSC turned on.

  • Set Transition Mix Details / Set Transition Dip Details / Set Transition Wipe Detals / Set Transition Sting Details / Set Transition DVE Details: Tapping the Add to Siri button will create a shortcut that uses appropriate action for the selected transition.

  • Send OSC Message: Tapping the Add to Siri button will create a shortcut that uses the Send OSC Message to send the appropriate transition message to MixEffect.

  • OSC: If you prefer to enter the OSC commands directly into Companion, this section shows you exactly what you need to enter. For commands with multiple arguments, be sure to choose the Send message with multiple arguments action when using the Generic OSC module.

NOTE: You cannot animate transition settings, so the Use Custom Animation, Duration, and Animation Style options are not available when creating a Transition Automation.
