The VJX16-4 controls aren’t outrageously different from a “traditional” video mixer, but there are a couple of initial concepts you need to master to get started. This Vixid101 video covers concepts from the left side of the mixer, the big ones being: Choosing inputs, routing outputs, previews, layer selection and ordering, and blend modes.
While these are the “basic” functions of the mixer, they also contain the core of what makes the VJX such a revolutionary tool. As you start to come to terms with these new capabilities, they will suggest to you whole new ways of working with video.
In the coming months I’ll be covering these new methods as I come up with them, as well as more of the basics. This site isn’t just about me though, there are plenty of other VJX users out there doing great things. If you have something you’d like to share, please get in touch.
