Transitions

You can choose from a range of transitions to mix between your media sources. Currently there are 30 transitions built into MixEmergency. More transitions can be added by installing transition plug-ins.

  • Dissolve - Smoothly dissolves between media sources.
  • Difference - Transitions through the difference between media sources.
  • Multiply - Transitions through the multiplication of the media sources.
  • Minimum - Transitions through the minimum of the media sources.
  • Maximum - Transitions through the maximum of the media sources.
  • Fade To Black - Transitions through a fade to black.
  • RGB - Transitions through the red, green and blue color channels. Transition parameter controls the channel order.
  • Luma Key Black - Transitions based on the brightness of the media sources (darker colors are mixed first). Transition parameter controls how smooth the transition is.
  • Luma Key White - Transitions based on the brightness of the media sources (lighter colors are mixed first). Transition parameter controls how smooth the transition is.
  • Slide - Horizontally slides one source in, and one source out.
  • Wipe H - A horizontal wipe effect. Transition parameter controls the smoothness of the transition edge.
  • Wipe V - A vertical wipe effect. Transition parameter controls the smoothness of the transition edge.
  • Iris - An opening iris transition. Transition parameter controls the smoothness of the transition edge.
  • Squeeze H - Distorts both media sources horizontally.
  • Squeeze V - Distorts both media sources vertically.
  • Cube - Projects the media sources onto a rotating cube. Transition parameter controls the 3D perspective.
  • Flip H - A horizontal 3D flipping transition. Transition parameter controls the 3D perspective.
  • Flip V - A vertical 3D flipping transition. Transition parameter controls the 3D perspective.
  • Grid - Displays a 3 by 3 grid that randomly transitions between the media sources. Transition parameter controls the grid size.
  • Grid 2 - A variation of the Grid transition. Transition parameter controls the grid size.
  • Grid 3 - A variation of the Grid transition. Transition parameter controls the grid size.
  • Strobes - Strobes between both media sources. Transition parameter controls the strobe time.
  • Switch - Switches instantly to the opposite media source at the center position of the crossfader.
  • Cut - Cuts instantly to the opposite media source as soon as the crossfader begins fading.
  • Hold - Holds the current media source until the crossfader has completely transitioned to the opposite media source.
  • Stay - Stays on the currently displayed media.
  • Stay Reverse - Stays on the opposite channel to the currently displayed media.
  •  
  • Random - Randomly selects a transition when new media is loaded.
  •  
  • Background Left - Moving the crossfader to the left shows the background.
  • Background Right - Moving the crossfader to the right shows the background.
  • Background - The output window transparency is controlled by the transition parameter.
