Modify MOV Motion Overlay on a Running Event - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.18 of the AWS Elemental Live documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Live and AWS Elemental Statmux Documentation.

Modify MOV Motion Overlay on a Running Event

In a running event, modify the content and/or behavior of the existing MOV motion overlay.

Note

Commands sent during an event change the event XML. Therefore, if you export the XML and create a new event with it, the new event will have any overlays set up as they were set during the course of the event, not as they were when the event was created.

HTTP Request and Response

HTTP URL

POST http://<Live IP Address>/live_events/<live event id>/motion_image_inserter

Body of Request

XML content consisting of one motion_image_inserter element that contains the required tags. For the tags, see the table in the section Create or Modify a Non-Running Event with MOV Motion Overlay. For information on the tags to include for different actions, see Motion Graphic Overlay.

Response

The response repeats back the data that you posted with <ID> tags for motion_image_inserter and motion_image_inserter_input.

Example

The following example request modifies the running event with the ID 33. It sets up the currently defined overlay MOV to run again at 20160102T030405.678Z.
