View Full Version : Picture in Picure Live VT4

07-06-2007, 03:54 AM

I'm searching for a way to get a Picture in Pictur mode for live mixing.
The only thing I found are the PiP DVE's but I'm not able to positioning the the picture Box. I see that it's possible to create new DVE's in Lightwave but i'm have no idee how to use lightwave.

so now I'm searching for a solution to alter the DVE or a second method to get PiP?

Dos anybody have an Idee.

Once created the DVEs are not editable.

Thus your basic options are:
-Use one of the stock DVEs that fits.
-Use a 3rd party DVE that fits (I've built some specialty PIP DVEs - http://www.corin.com/wipes/vol3.shtml)
-Build a custom PIP DVE in lightwave to get exactly what you need.
-Use the Bob's 3rd channel pluggin - which is an additional effects bus with adjustable positioning (available at http://www.bobfx.com/Bobs3rdChannel.html)

If you need adjustability - the 3rd channel is the route to go.

Hi billmi,

I looked in your DVEs ans see its Build for NTSC. But we have PAL here.
is their any wa to use them?

Nope, they are NTSC only. I think that would make Bob's 3rd Channel your best bet.

Does anyone know if that functionality will be included inside VT5?

You can do 'over the shoulder' and similar PIPs very easily using the new LiveSet technology (including switching from one source to a completely different scene which includes a PIP from yet another source.) It is not freely positionable, but once it becomes possible to ''roll your own', you should be able to do this easily.

Ok i have tested Bob 3rd Channel.

And it works fine.
