The Logician
(8:25) Q: do you have a tutorial on how to do the map automation for the intro roll?

emagrev
(9:52) Q: cool which 360 camera did you use?

Clear Life Media
(10:49) Halloween colors today!

emagrev
(10:57) Just wonder if anyone else know about using a capture card with an iPad Pro and the streaming capabilities?

Jonathan Palmer
(11:32) Q: have you tried the screen mirroring with iPhone to iMac (Sonoma) as a replacement for mirroring to Apple TV and is it better?

Jonathan Palmer
(14:01) Q: Good for streaming but if you wanted to go from phone to say a room with speakers it would be trickier with Apple TV.

Bicky Bickford
(14:28) Q: I bought a Netgear 4250 switch for AV have you had any experience with those?

Cameron Prymak
(15:42) Hi from Canada!

Eric Likness
(15:45) The AI edit on Insta360 video was pretty good (and trippy!)

Nathan Backous
(15:49) Apps need to support it.

MT Steuerung
(15:57) Q - The Netgear is specially designed for AV application

IT Never Gets Old
(16:02) It is expensive, it is optimized for NDI

SCHNITTFELD
(17:29) would you still buy an atem extreme iso for multi cam iso recording?

SCHNITTFELD
(22:31) 🙏🙏🙏

Alex Hardy
(22:50) Q audio Video bridging that’s what AVB that means

WutrUduin?
(22:54) AVB=Audio Video Bridging. A network protocol for AV. Can use WITH regular traffic if the switch is AVB compliant. No need for a separate audio ethernet network.

Bicky Bickford
(23:04) Look into the 4250 line when you have a chance, they can do Dante and NDI plus much more all at the same time.

culturevaani
(23:17) Can the normal atem have weboverlay using maxeffect or liveapp pro. Normal atem mini, not pro or iso

culturevaani
(25:01) Can the normal atem have weboverlay using maxeffect or liveapp pro. Normal atem mini, not pro or iso

WutrUduin?
(29:16) Q can you change the background color to something other than black?

WutrUduin?
(31:15) Q I meant from live app, so you can use chroma and maybe get cleaner lines?

WutrUduin?
(31:32) Q I meant from live app, so you can use chroma and maybe get cleaner lines?

Raul Espinosa
(32:07) It doesn't look bad at all..

Eric Likness
(32:10) Agree, the output with Luma key is darned good.

Philip Luckey
(32:14) Note that if you’re keying a graphic from the built-in Media Player of the ATEM, you can key using DSK (or USK) if the MP graphic has transparent background.

Nick Houlton
(35:43) ... agree, luma key is great for these and just avoid 100% black in the graphic overlay

Kevin S Meeks
(36:15) ✋how do I use my atem mini pro iso as a webcam and record to ssd / im new to atem ????👋👋

Fontastic
(38:13) something looks different and better about your wall

Jesse Hernandez
(38:33) Q: i tried setting up the companion YouTube module to directly control my livestreams but it seems to have changed the setup process in companion version 3. I can’t find an up to date walk through!

Raul Espinosa
(43:00) Q: So the HyperDeck Studio HD Plus is 4k?

Wilex Roger
(43:48) Q: Do you ever consider writing a technical book for Atem swtichers /Yolobox ? Bcause that will help a lot of poeple.

Patrick Chang
(45:12) Q: What scenarios would you recommend the Osee GoStream over an Atem Mini Pro? (Assuming that Osee will release a desktop software soon)

Christopher Wichura
(47:05) Q: Does Yolobox suppoort USB Audio Class inputs. Specifically, could you connect a Dante AVIO USB adapter and get audio into your production from a Dante network?

Emerald Audiovisual
(48:21) @Christopher Wichura iy supports the Rødecaster Audio USB output for example, but you then loose all mixer control in the YoloBox.

Emerald Audiovisual
(48:39) Aye ... there are so many reasons to go for the Extreme or Extreme ISO

Hans Winzell
(48:44) About record and wecam: you can use OBS and virtual webcam output and record simultaneously

Art In The Game
(49:11) "Q" Will I be able to edit to final program file in adobe from the ATEM or do I need to use DaVinc?

Emerald Audiovisual
(50:18) @Hans Winzell the problem Kevin has, seeing that he's got an ISO version, he'll only get ISO recordings, if he uses the USB-C for the SSD. And then gets his video feed from the HDMI out.

IT Never Gets Old
(50:41) The ultimate irony - Aaron stuck in an OAUTH loop

Raul Espinosa
(50:50) That's ironic! hehe

Issa Edah-Tally
(51:05) Q: I have Apple TV connected to Atem Extreme via Binary HDM over Cat6. I am using ATV for Airplay to do PiP. The problem is I get random screen flickering.

Randy Robinson Films
(52:32) Q: Would you recommend a Constellation HD 2 M/E over the ATEM Extreme SDI? I’m sure there are pros/cons for both. Who’s each one for?

Randy Robinson Films
(53:22) Q: Would you recommend a Constellation HD 2 M/E over the ATEM Extreme SDI? I’m sure there are pros/cons for both. Who’s each one for?

Emerald Audiovisual
(55:51) 2 M/E vs Atem Extreme SDI isn't the other difference the lack of audio routing in the 2M/E ?

MT Steuerung
(56:35) Q - the ME2 has additional Supersource the ME1 hasn't

Randy Robinson Films
(56:59) The constellation sounds like a beast for the price!

Philip Luckey
(57:20) Also you can do ISO recording via USB on Extreme, but not on Constellation.

Teyrnon Powell
(1:02:49) A2Z

MT Steuerung
(1:02:53) Q - Brandon has had a other Channel A2Z Production

Aaron Parecki

LikeThisReview
(1:03:11) Saw questions on Hyperdeck Studio HD Plus. it does 4K up to 30 fps. It also has a downscaled 1080p SDI (monitoring) out

Nick Houlton
(1:03:38) ... consider budgeting for a web presenter as no encoder in the constellation ?

Stop & Think
(1:04:30) Q: What, in your opinion, is the easiest editing system for beginners, recording on the ATEM Mini Extreme?

IT Never Gets Old
(1:05:01) With the Cat6 converters it is often HDMI re-sync issues, sometimes plugging and unplugging the HDMI on the receiver end helps

MT Steuerung
(1:05:11) Q - those HDMI Extender are mostly rated for a certain lenght of Cat Cable .. that also could cause some problems if you use longer Cables to connect them

Cameron Prymak
(1:05:29) Q: on the ATEM use cases, StreamYard and vMix offer supersource and recording options, right? So a user could look at those other options and use Atem or other device for camera inputs.

Randy Robinson Films
(1:06:23) Q: do you have a forum/Facebook group recommendation to learn more about live streaming

LikeThisReview
(1:06:31) Sorry, was not able to join sooner. No Companion upgrade yet I suppose

The Logician
(1:08:25) I bought a decimator MD-HX to invert the image going to my 2nd monitor, which acts as a 24" monitor teleprompter setup. My C70 is my webcam... lol.

Art In The Game
(1:08:38) "Q" what would be your recommendation for a monitor to work with the ATEM mini iso? Really liked your video on the Seetec you published. Trying to be cost effective as possible. Thank You Aaron.

Gwen Park
(1:11:27) c-force has a portable monitor with full size HDMI (learned that from A2Z)

LikeThisReview
(1:11:44) A latched button is now a stepped button and needs reconfiguration; the variable naming convention is slightly different

LikeThisReview
(1:13:03) I believe the feedback for a stepped button is different

IT Never Gets Old
(1:13:51) The bigger issue is conversion of Companion 2.x to Companion 3.x is changing your buttons to take advantage of the conditional logic and multi-flow options of 3.x also triggers are more powerful

Vonmay Mendoza
(1:16:09) Q: I own a Yolobox Instream. I bought network bonding for it but it doesn’t show up on the instream. Is it compatible?

MT Steuerung

newsfan77
(1:17:11) Q: Looking for a new hardware encoder to replace an old Teradek Vidiu. What would you recommend?

Noel Del Pilar
(1:17:50) NSTREAM BONDING in version 1.6.6

Cameron Prymak
(1:18:07) Q: would be great to get your feedback on other YouTuber’s production setups, ex Brian Tyler Cohen, to show pros and cons - it looks like a one-man show. Have you ever considered that?

Michael Flotron
(1:18:48) One of my offline videos for my flight was live production mastery haha

Raul Espinosa
(1:19:02) I use a portable ASUS 15 inch with the HyperDeckShuttle HD

Noel Del Pilar
(1:19:06) I have two monitors like that for my Atem Mini Extreme.

Philip Luckey
(1:19:11) The thin HDMI monitors also fit in your Tablet Clips on PK1!!!

Mark Redder
(1:19:21) I'm going to start multi-cam streaming of amateur sporting events. How important is SDI in this situation? It seems like wireless video transmitters and HDMI would work with less setup and cost.

Koala20
(1:21:41) we need a "No time limit stream" 😂

Vonmay Mendoza
(1:21:46) Q: Wait but on the instream, It says I’m up to date

Thomas Lambright
(1:22:03) Q: my output from the ATM SDI extreme ISO is 1080p 30 and is going into an SDI to HDMI black magic converter. however I have been unable to find a monitor that supports 30 HZ. any solution?

Time Off With Lee
(1:23:35) Q: with the toolbox ultra coming out with instream capabilities, do you think they may eventually add it to the yolobox pro and mini in a firmware update?

Gwen Park
(1:25:00) Q: I noticed Mint Mobile on your phone. Curious if you use it as a bonding source with HD streams since their service limits video streaming to 480?

Gwen Park
(1:27:18) Ah, I see. I got confused by their language. Thanks!

IT Never Gets Old
(1:27:21) Aaron used to do no-time limit streams - take a look at his desk build stream

Emerald Audiovisual
(1:28:04) 40GB is laughable .. but that is the US for you. I've got unlimited with a 750GB fair use cap.

enblanco
(1:28:21) For amateur sports I use a mix of HDMI and for a longer distance camera sdi converted to HDMI via BM converter

Volleykanalen
(1:28:29) Q: Is it possible to use USB as overlay in Yolobox Pro? I've connected my computer/OBS to USB for graphics – but I only got keying to work with PiP, and there's only two PiP but three HDMI cam angles.

Volleykanalen
(1:30:13) Q:I attached a Magewell dongle with HDMI in, and it worked. I want it on no matter which camera I choose.

KrazyKaleb
(1:31:13) Good morning from Melbourne Australia 🇦🇺

Eric Likness
(1:33:18) Who remembers the Pi commandline for GitHub ❓

Emerald Audiovisual
(1:34:01) @Eric Likness fully expect for his box to implode shortly

Raul Espinosa
(1:37:21) I hate node!

Ryan Somerfield
(1:37:27) Gday!

Eric Likness
(1:37:29) @Ryan Somerfield you're just in time for the show. Aaron's going to migrate Companion to 3 from 2.x

Philip Luckey
(1:39:15) Everything looks different now! But in the exact same way!

Graham Rule
(1:43:13) You do have a backup of your companion config don'r you? It might be a very long stream if you have to rebuild all your connections and buttons.

Daron Green
(1:46:00) Q: Have you thought about putting a title or subtitle on this view that explains what you’re doing…for folks that join late…asking for a friend ;-)

Philip Luckey
(1:48:11) The music sounds so “Companion 2” — can’t wait to hear the new “3.0” sounds!

IT Never Gets Old
(1:48:24) Too many connections to the ATEM?

MT Steuerung
(1:49:29) Q - how many connection can the Atem handle .. I guess 5

Philip Luckey
(1:50:14) Don’t forget to let the Pi cool down before you bite into it!

Sven Lakemeier
(1:51:26) If you overwrite the card, why not pull the power?

IT Never Gets Old
(1:51:32) You will be re-formatting that card if you pull it

Daron Green
(1:52:04) Don’t try this at home.

IT Never Gets Old
(1:53:59) Daring to be different - Blowing up your livestream infrastructure on purpose - with the Chaos Router it is a theme

IT Never Gets Old
(1:56:41) You do not need to even login

Nils Braune
(2:00:15) Can you delete and re-add the device?

Ryan Somerfield
(2:01:07) I have been scared to upgrade… Maybe it’s time

Eric Likness
(2:01:10) @Ryan Somerfield ONLY if you do it during a live stream.

IT Never Gets Old
(2:01:54) I think if you use the same instance name it will be fine

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:02:16) the question is: which button is it ?

Eric Likness
(2:04:17) Everything was cleanly imported, EXCEPT for the most important piece, the ATEM Constellation. 😠

Philip Luckey
(2:05:37) Next week: How to change tires on your bike while riding it down the street…

IT Never Gets Old
(2:06:59) What happens if you disconnect the Mac instance of companion?

Eric Likness
(2:08:34) So not be a jerk, but is the "upgrade" of the Original Pi SDHC card still an option ❓

Eric Likness
(2:08:58) Reboot the Atem sure, go big or don't stream. 👍

IT Never Gets Old
(2:09:32) Before you reboot the ATEM I think you should trying deleting and adding in the connection to the Atem on the PI

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:11:51) Why on earth do you have it on a .0 address ?

The Logician
(2:15:40) Open a second instance of companion open to the connections page to see if and when it crashes?

Philip Luckey
(2:20:59) Now do it all over again, but with your eyes closed and only using your feet!

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:21:09) stop and start

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:21:12) the constellation

IT Never Gets Old
(2:21:13) Do some button testing

Unstence
(2:22:42) Maybe reboot the pi to make sure everything still works

Philip Luckey
(2:23:24) The good news is, you’ll need to do this entire process each time you use it. (Kidding!!)

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:23:34) stop and start the constellation module anyhow

Unstence
(2:30:39) Weird how it seemingly worked on the Mac

Unstence
(2:31:15) Let’s run back to 2.4 and pretend this was all a nightmare

LikeThisReview
(2:31:30) Check the variable list

Nils Braune
(2:32:04) Buy another Mac.

IT Never Gets Old
(2:32:07) Yes, but you have an opportunity to "optimize" your new companion 3 setup

Unstence
(2:32:39) Rebuilding might be faster than troubleshooting at this looking

Hans Winzell
(2:32:42) Are you sure it is the same version on ypour mac and pi?

Philip Luckey
(2:34:46) I recommend rebooting Constellation, in case ATEM connections are “confused”

Daron Green
(2:35:09) Export the config from the Mac and load that into the pi?

Juhani Väihkönen Underwater
(2:35:14) How about exporting the configuration from MAC and importing it to PI?

WutrUduin?
(2:38:15) Double audio and BTC is seeing the same camera

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:38:33) my Atem Extreme always swaps multiview and program around between the HDMI outputs on reboot

Patrick Chang
(2:39:24) This feels like the scene from Apollo 13 when they had to turn on everything back on in a certain sequence :-)

IT Never Gets Old
(2:40:25) Give it five times

MT Steuerung
(2:40:30) Q - did you notice on the second ME the last butto in the first row was missing

Nils Braune
(2:41:12) Is it beta time?

Graham Rule
(2:42:02) Is it the stinger button that is missing?

IT Never Gets Old
(2:42:28) Did you try logging with PI and Raspberry

IT Never Gets Old
(2:42:28) Did you try logging with PI and Raspberry

IT Never Gets Old
(2:44:03) Again this is actually good educational content

Philip Luckey
(2:47:29) “Look around—can you form some sort of rudimentary lathe?”

Frankie King
(2:47:36) Think we should take a Coffey break, and meet back here in 20 minutes 😁

Raul Espinosa
(2:50:04) Question, what node version do you have in the mac?

Sven Lakemeier
(2:51:01) Reading the instructions seems like a good idea in general

Richmond Felix
(2:51:13) This is so hilarious to see this happen to someone other than me. We truly feel your pain. The joys of upgrades. Hang in there!

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:52:26) In the meanwhile, I'm going to download a piece of beta firmware for the Magewell Director Mini and see, if the DJI Osmo Action 4 works with it afterwards.

i360 Media Inc
(2:52:39) Q: Yolobox Pro vs Magewell Director Mini for Portable livestream.

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:54:38) reimport fully

Gwen Park
(2:54:57) lol, all this b/c you chose the "stable" version

IT Never Gets Old
(2:55:30) I like the look of the handwritten signpost/headings

Philip Luckey
(2:55:43) Are the wires you’re installing in the house even compatible with Companion 3? Have a tent nearby, just in case.

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:55:49) Director Mini: the phone stream feature is amazing. DJI Osmo Action 4 currently black picture. Insta360 cams frozen image (USB webcam on both). Hence they gave me said beta access.

Eric Likness
(2:56:01) Export/backup config. Shortest Path is CompanionPi and latest Beta.

Raul Espinosa
(2:56:06) connection to ATEM crashing after reboot (Companion Pi version 3.1 and latest beta)

Emerald Audiovisual
(2:56:21) If in doubt blame Node.JS :)

IT Never Gets Old
(2:56:34) The Chaos Companion to go with the Chaos Router

Raul Espinosa
(2:58:21) its in github, not sure if was the same problem..

Eric Likness
(2:58:30) Have a beer on me.
