Switch Inputs with Footswitch

Hey everyone,

I have used one of my ATEM Minis yesterda at our band rehearsal. 20-minute setup, everything worked out fine. Now I was wondering, if anyone knows of a way to use a footswitch to change the inputs/cameras, as we otherwise would need an operator to switch cameras.

Thanks for ideas and have a lovely weekend!


@marcthiele I’ve never really played with Midi controls, but in theory you could grab a midi footswitch and follow this video from @john to control everything from simple cuts to triggering macros. https://youtu.be/HQm2KZYcPws

Many speedrunners use different cheap foot switch input devices: https://www.reddit.com/r/speedrun/comments/80o7sv/which_foot_pedal_do_most_speedrunners_use_or/

Something there might work, but you will need to setup a Companion control surface to use it.

If you’re just looking for input changes that don’t need to be cut at specific times, macros are your friend. @aaronpk put this video together a while ago that might get you a result that will work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIILx2zalz0
