Photoshop Plugin

PostTue Feb 19, 2019 5:41 pm

Hey there!

I am trying to export graphics from Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 to the media pool in ATEM Software 7.5. I know that there is a plugin that will allow you to quickly export the images from Photoshop directly to the ATEM switcher; however, the plugin is not available on Photoshop. Needing assistance on how to locate plugin/activate the plugin.

Thanks! :D

If you already have Photoshop installed, then when you install the ATEM software, it installs the plug-in.

You may have to re-boot and re-launch everything for it to show up.

Check page 161-162 of the manual.

This allows you to put stills with Alpha channel in the Media Player for Upstream or Downstream keys.

If you want animated lower thirds, consider using PowerPoint on Windows with the app. Very fast way to update titles/graphics and includes the slide animation.

This might be the answer, at least on a Mac...

The plugin in the folder: Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Switchers/CS5 needs to get copied to Applications/Adobe Photoshop 2019/Plugins/. Reopen Photoshop and File>Export>ATEM Switcher Media Pool should work!
