The principal task for mimoLive is to record, stream live or play out a live video production. There is a special button called “Start/Stop Show” at the top of the mimoLive document window that can trigger multiple actions at the same time either at the beginning of a show or at the end. E.g. those events can be used to start the recording to disk at the same time as starting a layer playing back an intro movie for your show.

Triggering Recording to Disk, Live Streaming, Blackmagic Design Play Out or Fullscreen Play Out

Each of the Output Destinations have the option to be switch on with
the “Start Show” event (initiated by yourself by pressing the Start Show button) and/or switched off by the “Stop Show” event (when you press the Stop Show button). This behaviour can be configured in the Settings panels of each output destination by the “Start with show” and “Stop with show.” options:Each of the Output Destinations have the option to be switch on with the “Start Show” event (initiated by yourself by pressing the Start Show button) and/or switched off by the “Stop Show” event (when you press the Stop Show button). This behaviour can be configured in the Settings panels of each output destination by the “Start with show” and “Stop with show.” options:

The icons in the Start/Stop Show button reflects which output destinations are configured to either start or stop with this button.

Triggering Layers

Each layer and each layer variant can be controlled by the Start Show event or the Stop Show event triggered by the “Start/Stop Show” Button. You can setup the events in the parameter setup for each layer:

Available Options are:

- Live on Show Start: The layer in general (regardless which variant is selected) or a certain variant will be set to live when you hit the “Start Show” button. This is useful for intro movies or stations logos to be activated when a show begins.
- Live on End Trigger: This layer in general or a certain variant will be set t olive when you hit the “Stop Show” button. This makes sense for rolling credits or outro movies.
- Off on End Trigger: E.g. you can use this option If you want your Station Logo to disappear when you stop the show.

Sample Scenario

This event mechanism is very powerful. Lets say you are doing a live steam of an event with multiple speeches. You want mimoLive to stream continuously all day log but at the same time you want to record each speech with an intro and an outro branded by your company. between the speeches you want to stream a “Next session starts soon” sign. Now you can configure the layer that plays back the intro movie to be triggered with the “Live on Show Start”. The layer that plays back the outro movie is configured with the “Live on End Trigger” option. Setup the “End Offset” parameter to the duration of the outro movie: This will delay the actual stop of the recording. The “Start Show” button should only be triggering the Recording to Disk. The streaming will not be influenced by all this action.
