Loupedeck's Loupedeck Live control surface is a great way to control your Ecamm Live broadcasts.
Ecamm Live includes a Loupedeck plugin, which adds 22 custom actions to your Loupedeck Live.
Installing The Plugin
Upon opening Ecamm Live, if the Loupedeck software is detected, you will be prompted to install the plugin. (If you do not have the Loupedeck software installed yet, download it here.)
You can also also pick Install Loupedeck Plugin from the Ecamm Live menu at the top of the screen beside the menu. If you do not see the Install Loupedeck Plugin option in the menu, this means that it is already installed.
Once installed, if you don't see the Loupedeck configuration screen, pick Open Loupedeck... from the Loupedeck menu at the top of the screen.
In the configuration screen, pick Ecamm Live from Loupedeck's Profile menu. You'll see a default key layout show up on your Loupedeck Live device.
You will also see the available Ecamm Live actions for customizing your Loupedeck along the right-hand side.
To use the Ecamm Live plugin with other Loupedeck Live profiles, click Manage Plugins, and then choose Ecamm Live.
Loupedeck's Dynamic Mode
By default, Loupedeck will be in Dynamic Mode. This means that your Loupedeck profile will change automatically based on which application is in the foreground. For example, your Ecamm Live actions will show up only when Ecamm Live is the active application. If you wish to specify the current Loupedeck Profile manually, turn off Dynamic Mode in the Loupedeck's Profiles menu.
Ecamm Live Plugin Actions
Action keys and rotation adjustments can be added to customize your Loupedeck Live. To add an action to your Loupedeck, drag it from the sidebar to the desired key location.
The Ecamm Live custom actions include:
