I'm using a LaunchControlXL midi unit with VMix and it's been plain sailing so far.
However, we have a lot of variable length ticker titles and ideally I want to change the duration of the ticker title from the midi controller using a slider during a live broadcast.
We would then store multiple ticker text's in the one title and switch between them and adjust each ticker text's duration's so they kept going at a constant speed.
However, I can't find one. Can anyone guide me in the right direction?
I suppose a workaround would be to have a lot of separate ticker title inputs.

I had the same issue when I was feeding the ticker from an external script , the prblem is you don't set a speed but a total duration, I ended up editing the title to show the duration to be set along side the text , then within the php that was feeding in the content I did a character count then set the duration accordingly

@ redpowerstation

Perhaps a "Feature Request" is in order...
AFAIK there isn't any means within the API to alter or set the duration of the 'Ticker' playback.

Any code examples of how to access this in the API? Thanks
