Using the Multi-view asset allows you to combine multiple camera angles and/or Assets into a single view. There are three steps to using a Multi-view:

  1. Pre-production: Create a new Multi-view asset on the main switcher.
  2. During production: Enable the Multi-view asset.
  3. During production: Select the camera angles and/or assets you want to combine.

Create a new Multi-view Asset on the Main Switcher

Before you go live or start your recording, you'll need to create the Multi-view asset, using one of the built-in templates. There are several templates, but the process of creating them is similar for all of them.

  1. From your main switching device, tap the + icon.
  2. Tap Multi-views.
  3. Tap the template you want to use.
  4. Adjust the settings as desired.
  5. Tap Done in the top right.

There are 6 Multi-view templates available:

  • Dashboard: 2-4 sources, side-by-side
  • Grid: 2-9 sources, in a optimized grid
  • Split Screen: 2 sources, split to occupy the entire screen
  • Flap: 2 sources, where one is at an angle
  • Slots: 2-4 sources, in vertical columns
  • Picture in Picture: 2 sources, where one is full-screen and the other is a small overlay.

The options to customize the Multi-view will vary depending on the template you select:

  • Number of Sources: The total number of camera angles / Assets you want to combine. The Grid Multi-view allows you to add up to nine sources.
  • Duration: The amount of time it takes to transition from an active source to a replacement source.
  • Background Color: The color behind the source windows.
  • Background Image: The photo or graphic behind the source windows.
  • Background Image Opacity: The level of transparency / opacity of the background image.
  • Spacing: The space between the source windows.
  • Uniform Gap: Makes the gaps between the windows and the frames uniform by cropping the tops and bottoms of the source windows.
  • Horizontal Gap: The gap between the source windows and the frame.
  • Reflection: The amount of reflection below the source windows.
  • Reflection Gap: The gap between the source windows and the reflection.
  • Perspective: The inward angle of the source windows.
  • Separator Direction: The angle of the separator that splits the frames.
  • Separator Position: The location of the separator relative to the edges of the frame.
  • Separator Thickness: The thickness of the separator line.
  • Separator Color: The color of the separator line.
  • Center: Centers the sources within the source windows.
  • Flap Angle: The inward angle of source A.
  • Flap Scale: The size of source A.
  • Inset Scale: The zoom level of source B.
  • Flap Margin: The space around source A.
  • Inset Margin: The horizontal space around source B.
  • Flap Format: The available ratio options for source A.
  • Border Color: The color of the separator lines.
  • Border Thickness: The thickness of the separator lines.
  • Rounding Radius: The corner radius of source B.
  • Horizontal Cropping: The horizontal cropping of source B.
  • Vertical Cropping: The vertical cropping of source B.
  • Position X: The horizontal position of source B.
  • Position Y: The vertical position of source B.
  • Scale: The size of source B.
  • Yaw: The horizontal tilt of source B.
  • Pitch: The vertical tilt of source B.
  • Roll: The rotation of source B.

Enable the Multi-view Asset and Select the Camera Angles and/or Assets

  1. While livestreaming or recording, you should see all the Multi-view assets you've created in the Sources / Production panel.
  2. Tap the Multi-view you’d like to use.
  3. Tap the cameras or assets you’d like to include in the Multi-view. They will be ordered from left-to-right in the order you select them. 
  4. To replace a camera view or asset in the Multi-view while it's live, tap the replacement in the Sources / Production panel.
  5. Tap the position you’d like to replace (e.g. A, B, C, D).
  6. To remove the Multi-view, tap another asset in the Sources / Production panel. Or, tap Solo to make it full-screen.

Multi-view Video Limits

Currently, you can only use up to two pre-recorded Video Assets as part of all Multi-View Assets.
