Having smooth transitions between scenes when using Companion to drive my ATEM

Hello,

I have buttons on my Companion for each scene type in my video. For example, PowerPoint slide in a box, me on the bottom left via chroma key. Or me, centered, with a lower-thirds title.

Because timing is tricky, sometime the transitions between scenes is smooth, but sometime the multiple effects creates a visual jumble on the screen. Each scene might have multiple parts (upstream and downstream keys, flying keys, images, background videos).

Is there a good approach anyone’s found to this problem? I’ve been adjusting delays, but sometimes it works and sometimes it looks choppy.

Warm regards,

Bob
