To Perform a Transition

All Transitions, with the exception of cuts on the background or key bus, have the same basic steps. To perform a transition, you must select what sources you want to transition on what buses, and how you want the transition to appear.

  1. On the Transition module, select the configurable program output (PGM A or PGM B or both) for the ME that you want to perform the transition on.
    Tip: The PGM A and PGM B buttons allow you to perform a split ME transition with an independent A-side and B-side. Press PGM A or PGM B to have the Transition module and the background and preset buses assigned to the A-side or B-side. Press both buttons to have the Transition module and buses assigned to both sides. Both the A-side and B-side have independent transition rates but share the keys based on the configurable program output settings.
  2. Select the elements (BKGD or KEY X) you want to include in the next transition. To select multiple keys and background, press and hold the first element, and select additional elements.
  3. Select the video sources you want to take on-air on the program and key buses.
  4. Select the type of transition (DISS, WIPE, DVE) you want to perform.
    If you select a Wipe or DVE transition, additional selections are required.
  5. Toggle ROLL CLIP on if you want any video server clips assigned to a source being taken on-air to play with the transition.
  6. Perform the transition.
    • Auto Transition — Press AUTO TRANS. The transition is performed at the set transition rate.
    • Cut — Press CUT.
    • Fader — Move the fader from one limit to the other. The rate at which you push the fader determines the rate of the transition.
    Tip: You can preview the transition on the preview output by pressing and holding the transition type button and performing the Auto Trans or Fader transition.
    If a pre-roll time has been set, and Roll Clip is active, the switcher will apply the pre-roll interval before performing the transition.
