The Beat Mixer creates a new beat as a combination of several other beats. This is useful if you want to animate a property such that it reacts on several different beats in the same way. For this, you first merge all the beats into a new beat using the 'Beat Mixer' and then you animate the property using this combined beat as you would use any other beat. If you want the property to react on more than one beat, but react on each of them differently, you can use one of the 'Beat Switch' iExpressions instead

  • Smooth

    controls the behaviour if several different beats overlap in time. Without 'Smooth' the result changes apruptly from the value of the one beat to the value of the other, whereas with the 'Smooth' option there is a smooth transition between the different beats.

  • Beat 1
    link to Beat 1

    must be linked to the first of the beats which should be combined.

    Level Beat 1 (%)

    allows to modify the amplitude of beat 1 such that the reaction on it gets stronger or weaker.

  • Beat 2
    link to Beat 2

    must be linked to the second of the beats which should be combined.

    Level Beat 2 (%)

    allows to modify the amplitude of beat 2 such that the reaction on it gets stronger or weaker.

  • Beat 3
    link to Beat 3

    must be linked to the third of the beats which should be combined (or be set to 0 if you only want to combine two beats).

    Level Beat 3 (%)

    allows to modify the amplitude of beat 3 such that the reaction on it gets stronger or weaker.

  • Beat 4
    link to Beat 4

    must be linked to the fourth of the beats which should be combined (or be set to 0 if you want to combine less than four beats).

    Level Beat 4 (%)

    allows to modify the amplitude of beat 4 such that the reaction on it gets stronger or weaker.
