I have two BMPCC4Ks hooked up to an ATEM Mini Pro. The AMP HDMI-out goes to a VideoAssist to show MultiView. The USB-C out is used for SSD recording. Program and control is done over Ethernet from the AMP to my MacBook Pro.
The AMP is set to program/preview, with a 2s fade. I switch cameras using the hardware panel, not the Software Control. I don’t have a StreamDeck or iPad with Strata set up, I just switch from the hardware panel.
Normally, when I have Cam1 on preview (button lit up green) and Cam2 on program (button lit up red), tapping on ‘auto’ will switch from Cam2 to Cam1 with a 2 second dissolve.
However, once every ten times or so, pressing ‘auto’ will get 20% of the way of the dissolve (subtly overlaying Cam1 unto Cam2), then stay like that. The buttons of both sources are lit up red. If I press ‘auto’ again, the dissolve completes. But obviously this is behavior that I don’t want, it looks bad.
Does anyone know the cause of this and/or how to keep it from happening? Or did I get a bad ATEM Mini Pro?
