I'm not sure people are understanding how Overlays work. There are four Overlay channels. That doesn't restrict you to just 4 actual overlays. You can put as many overlays you want on one overlay channel as long as it design of the channel fit with your needs.

So I basically have one overlay channel which is full screen and one which is a lower third type. I often chop and change the other two.

I have about 4 completely different overlays on the full screen overlay channel.

If I put Input 3 as Overlay 4 (press the litle 4 under input 3) and next Input 5 as overlay 4 (press the litle 4 under input 5), Input 3 is out of Overlay 4, only Input 5 is on Air now

Or is there an other way to do it with overlays?

How can you change the overlay for a unique stream?

same content but different overlay ?

set output 1 to output and specify overlay 1 only
set output 2 to output and specify overlay 2 only

in stream settings select output 1 for source in the quality settings for stream 1
in stream settings select output 2 for source in the quality settings for stream 2

Yes same content, but different sponsors (one clean feed, one with the animated logo of the sponsor)

it seems I have to update to vMix 23 (this option is missing in 22)

Selecting a source for Output 2, 3 and 4


The Cog Button contains a drop down menu for selecting a source for any additional outputs in real time
(Available in vMix 4K and Pro)

I know to setup the outputs and the overlays to the differnet outputs (this works very well)

But now we have different sponsors, one will have a clean feed (without logo), the other his animated logo.

At the moment we use vMix22 and there it's not possible to set a different outputs to different streams.
So for now I will use NTRStreamer for the clean feed and vMix for the main mix

Thank's for your help

Bump!

Need more overlay input for graphics overlay, 4 overlay somehow limit my creativity on production
If we got more overlay channel, we can use the extra to do movement in and out

I suggest overlay input should not be limit to 4 only

This post is for feature requests, not reasons to not do them with workarounds that are limiting. I need more than 4, because I have different effects assigned for each. The effects cannot be changed by API, and changing while the overlay is on, doesn't get used when the overlay is removed.

This requirement for more overlays is quite large, and has been in for a long time, and does not get followed up on, or even explained. Out of all the many features, this is very important. With a product that has a lot of development, why are we waiting so long for this limitation to be acted on ?

is it ? when you have 10 layers in the multiview of an input that you can switch each off and on ?
You can have "layers" in a title one uses in an overlay



I agree, is important. Multiview does not have effects, so severely limited.

+ 1 for 2 more.

I also need the preview and duration option of the overlays and can't use the Multiview overlays.
