I got exited to midi map video controls but discovered there seems to be very little available in djay pro ai’s mapping scheme.
I’m seeing just two: Video Crossfader & Video Transitions.
Is that really all or am I missing a bunch of controls somewhere?
A LOT MORE TO CONTROL
Video Crossfader/Transitions are essential and it’s great they’re available, but there’s a lot more to control like which visualizer on which deck, selecting photos (& speed of photo changes by beat), selecting custom videos, dis/enabling text/image overlays, and more.
TOO MUCH WORK
Without more MIDI mapping of video, I’m stuck mousing around or poking on iPad a lot (and going back and forth between audio and video layouts to do so). Rapid Visualizer changes and getting new custom photos/videos into the decks is cumbersome.
AVOID OR BORE
The ability to dedicate a small MIDI controller to just video needs would make actually using video while mixing audio possible. Otherwise, it’s too hard to manage both in a live set. This makes it either avoid video or accept that much of it is going to be repetitive and boring for the audience.
