Need an ATEM Mini?
What this tip is about…
Both the ATEM Mini Extreme and ATEM Mini Extreme ISO have six hardware macro buttons on them, which is fantastic! Finally, you can trigger a macro from a physical button on your ATEM. But which ones do they trigger?
Well that part is easy… they trigger the first six macros in your collection. But what if you want to move a macro from, say, position seven into position one so that you can trigger it from the hardware? To do that, you need to edit the XML file.
It's not that scary, I promise. In this video, I'll show you how. Time to roll up your sleeves, download BBEdit (or just use any text editor, but BBEdit makes it easier), and pretend you know how to code!!
