Theatre company looking for better production platform options for digital content

Hello all!

I work for a live performance venue/theatre company which has moved into digital production in light of COVID-19 - which has not been our territory, as you might guess. We have produced play readings and events, both pre-recorded and live, using Zoom, Lightstream, and Streamyard. They are OK, but each have some downfalls - the inflexibility of setting layouts on Zoom and Streamyard, the occasional shakiness of Lightstream - and pre-recording a scene with multiple people and executing camera switches on the fly is challenging - screw it up, and you wind up having to do a multitude of reshoots - which kind of negates the idea of an 'as-live' presentation.

 

Is anyone aware of a platform which will generate a separate video file for each participant, that can then be edited together with the multi-cam functionality in Premiere and gussied up with After Effects? Zoom can generate separate audio files for each participant, but won't parse out each video feed.

I have seen some amazing things put together from Zoom sessions although not all recorded with the built-in Zoom software.  To illustrate what I mean, have a look at this.
