The VJX16-4 integrates BLEND modes between the video tracks which allow you to mix the four tracks in one flow (video composition). Each track has got a blend mode, independent of those applied to the other tracks.
The four video tracks are blended two by two: one track is blended with it or the tracks on the lower layers. The final composition depends therefore on how the tracks are organized on the layers.
The result of the composition of 2 video layers depends on:
The following diagram depicts the blend of the two tracks on layers B and C:
The VJX16-4 has 2 video mixing modes (MixMode ) : Compositing mode and Battle 2*2 mode.
The diagram below illustrates the organization of the Compositing mode:
The diagram below illustrates the Battle 2*2 mode organization:
The VJX16-4 has various BLEND modes. They are all available simultaneously and independently on each of the video tracks and allow the user to create elaborate compositions on each of the four video tracks.
To modify BLEND modes, use the 4 knobs and the Hold button.
Turn the BLEND knob of the track which you wish to modify. The LCD screen will then display the blend modes you have chosen for the four tracks.
List of available blend settings:
Once you have selected the BLEND mode, it is applied instantly. This seamless action allows you to switch from one mode to another simply and very quickly (ex. swap from STAMP mode to DIFFERENCE.)
However, you can also switch from one mode to another without applying intermediaries (ex. switch from Darken to Difference without applying Lighten or Stamp). To achieve this, press down on the Hold button while you adjust the BLEND knob until you find the desired mode, (for example the Difference mode.) When you release the Hold button your choice will be activated.
