In H2R Graphics version 2, install the “DJF 4 H2R.json” project settings
- Open H2R Graphics V2
- Under the Settings > Import/Export, select Import
- Select the H2R Graphics template that came with the DJF Companion Profile (“H2R-Graphics-DJF4.0-XXXXXX.json”)
- This is essential to install, as the shortcodes included in this H2R .json profile are linked specifically to the Companion buttons
- After this is installed, you may modify the text fields and theme look
Set the background color to Green
In Companion, update the H2R Graphics module fields
- Set Target IP to 127.0.0.1 to control the H2R Graphics on your local computer
- Set Target Port to 4001
- Set Project ID to ABCD
- Click “Save”
Connect your Computer’s HDMI output to the ATEM
- Connect the HDMI cable from your computer to the ATEM input.
- If you have a Macbook, you may need a USB-C-to-HDMI adapter.
- By default, VLC is using ATEM’s Input 4
- If you are also running VLC on Input 4, it is best to change this to a free input
- Open Output 1 within H2R, and make the green window full screen on that HDMI output source.
- In your ATEM’s Upstream Key, select the Chroma palette and key out the green image. The green should disappear and you see the clean program image underneath.
- Put your Upstream Key On Air
- Save Startup State to recall this setup when you power the ATEM off and on.
- Now you effectively have an “invisible” layer over your program that is always active, and any time you trigger H2R graphics, they will appear on screen.
Alternative Output via Network Computer or Raspberry Pi 4
- H2R is network-based. Therefore, if you have another computer running within your local network, you can open a web browser and direct the URL to H2R’s Output. Depending on your router’s address, it will look something like this (bold parts for emphasis):
- In this example, “107” refers to the computer that is running the H2R application (likely your local machine), and “ABCD” refers to the specific H2R Project that is open.
- The advantage of this set up is that your computer/laptop that is running and controlling H2R does not need to be connected via an HDMI cable to your switcher. Instead, you could operate graphics over the local WiFi.
