I want to use a title graphic from Vmix (scoreboard with clock)as an input into BlackMagic ATEM switcher; however when I use the input at DSK or upstream Key the title is faded, semi transparent...its like opacity level is reduced. The graphic in preview on black looks bright (proper) and if I use it as an overlay in Vmix that output is proper.
I'm hoping there is an easy explanation for this.
I have the latest pro version of Vmix (66) and graphic issue is the same with GT titles and legacy.
Looking for some help or suggestions.

You have to feed 2 signals to the ATEM from VMIX. Fill and Key.
The fill is the visible signal, the key tells, where to put it and defines the transparency.
Your graphics output hardware has to support it and you have to enable alpha (key) in the vmix output section.

Are you using fill & key or just some hdmi output (external render) for graphics

I was goin to ask the same... I will do the same, and want to know if it should work.
I will use my GTX1060 HDMI output to provide to ATEM scoreboard. It's easy? Will work?
Thanks!

We use a BM decklink quad 2 card and feed 2 SDI (fill & key) signals to our ATEM.

The ATEM Mixer needs to have 2 SDI-BNC Signals from VMIX (Fill & KEY)
You need a extra card (external renderer) for that.

With a HDMI Card, like your GTX 1060, you could do chromakey, but then you would not have any transparencies in your titles.

if you go to Google, a web search tool, type in "youtube fill and key video"
then you will find in first position this:
Fill and Key Video
