I’m using vMix in combination with the Companion app by Bitfocus.

In Companion, you have several variables available, coming from vMix. One of those is a timer. You can e.g. access the value with variable “timer_1_hh:mm:ss_value”.

I would like to access the same variable within vMix, but I can’t find any information on how. I tried to find the variables in the API XML, but they are not included.

Is there some other way?

What timer example are you talking about?

I’m not sure. It’s a timer that “lives” somewhere in vMix with the possibility to add lap times. It’s also possible to launch several timers, each with their own numeric Id. When you browse the vMix variables in companion, you get a list of almost everything (inputs, streams, status, ids, audio, tally,… you name it). It’s in that list that the timers appear when you set them up.

You have access to the id, state, value, current lap, …., all variables which are readable in the companion app

You may also try asking in the Companion Slack's vMix channel as well: https://app.slack.com/cl...U6LVGC-1652395138.571699

But I'm guessing you'd need to see if it can be done with scripting within vMix.
