Virtual Camera and Cables

The Virtual Camera feature allows you to enable your production program or any individual scene and make available as a webcam device for return into a video conferencing platform. An example of how, would be to return the production program, or a feed into a video conferencing call when using Zoom, Teams or any other platform to introduce contributions.

To configure your Virtual Cameras, open settings by selecting the mceclip0.png icon.

Then navigate to the Advanced tab and locate the Return Output Configuration section. From here you can configure up to 4 Virtual Camera's simultaneously.

Change the Type to Virtual Camera. Under Video select None, Program or an individual scene. For the Audio also select None, Program or one of your Aux's. For more information on setting up an Aux, see here.

To start your Virtual Camera, select the Start button.

Once the Virtual Camera is running, you can then select it as an input device within your chosen video conferencing platform. For example, you could select the Cre8 VCam_1 as your video device instead of your webcam when joining a call on Zoom.

Next open up Zoom. Then Start or Join a meeting.

Click the arrow by camera icon to open up the menu. This will bring up all your video source options. From the list select Cre8 VCam_1.

You'll now see that your video source is the Program feed from Cre8. Don't worry that this is mirrored, it will appear the correct way around when viewed by any other user.

Now you also want the audio to come from Cre8 too. To do this, open up the audio settings by clicking on the arrow by the microphone icon.

From the Select a Microphone section, choose the corresponding Virtual Cable you set as your Aux output before. In this case Virtual Cable A.

You will now be showing the other members of your Zoom call the Program Output of Cre8 via Virtual Camera and a pre configured Aux bus via a Virtual cable.
