Supported Combinations of Features

Combining Static and Motion Overlays

You can insert both a static overlay (or overlays, up to a maximum of 8 overlays) and one motion overlay onto the underlying video.

Combining Different Types of Motion Overlays

You cannot insert more than one type of motion overlay (PNG, MOV, or SWF) at the same time because you can insert only one motion overlay into one event. But you can insert MOV, PNG, and SWF motion overlays onto the same underlying video at different times by using the REST interface to change the overlay source file and start time. If the first overlay is still running at the start time of the second overlay, the first overlay will stop and the second one immediately starts.

Combining Graphic Overlays and Dynamic Content Switching

With AWS Elemental Live, you can combine static overlays with the dynamic content switching feature, described in Graphic Overlay Plus Dynamic Content Switching. The dynamic content switching feature lets you set up a list of different inputs to be processed by AWS Elemental Live in the same event, one after the other.
