Blackmagic Design TVS HD Flying Key animations

The Blackmagic Design Television Studio HD has added flying key features to the upstream key, something the original TVS did not support.

I created a demo video showing this feature in action using the software panel to control it.

A more seamless experience can achieved using PowerShell to automate the “key fly to” commands.

Example script (assumes you have already used SwitcherLib to connect to the TVS HD.

$key1.Type="Chroma"
$mp1.MediaStill = 2
$key1.InputFill=3010
$key1.InputCut=3011
$key1.Fly = 1
$key1.OnAir = 1
$key1.FlyRunToKeyFrame = [SwitcherLib.FlyKeyFrameDestination]::FlyKeyFrameFull
start-sleep 1
$key1.FlyRunToKeyFrame="FlyKeyFrameB"
start-sleep 1
$key1.FlyRunToKeyFrame="FlyKeyFrameFull"
start-sleep 1
$key1.FlyRunToKeyFrame="FlyKeyFrameA"
start-sleep 1
$key1.OnAir = 0
$key1.Fly = 0

You can see from the video below how well the animation flows.
