ATEM & Hyperdeck XML Commands

PostThu Apr 18, 2019 3:37 pm

Is there a repository of all the ATEM and Hyperdeck XML commands that I can get my hands on?

I am building/editing custom macros for some shows and I am just curious if there are some commands that could make my life easier and the macros better that I am not seeing.

I am only using the default commands that the switcher itself uses, and not anything like JustMacros or Xkeys. I am aware of them and given that I go between my own setup and other companies' setups that I freelance for, I would like to just use the default XML files produced by the ATEM software.

I edit the XML using Visual Studio.

The issue I find with OOTB macros is that they don't give you the option of storing a current value so you can return it later in the macro.

A lighter weight option for Visual Studio is VSCode https://code.visualstudio.com/. I have created some code snippets to make it quicker to insert new sections and know the options (I haven't added every option).

I have automated the HyperDeck using PowerShell which gives me more control than the macros.
