Hi Martin.

A have been tested Mixinputs a lot now.

It's very useful, but ther is one problem with the nubering of Mixinputs.
In shortcuts they are numberd 1 to 16.
In the API listings http://127.0.0.1:8088/API they are numberd 2 to 16. (the main mix is number 1)

But in API Funktion they are numbered 0 to15

f.ex. the first one
API.Function("Preview",Mix:=0, Input:="Mytestinput) ... Corresponds to number1

And the last is number
API.Function("Preview",Mix:=15, Input:="Mytestinput)

I can handle it in my Visual studio scripting but it's very confusing for a beginner.

Have a nice day.

After the update, vMix would start loading a project file but crash seconds later, without showing any error messages. If anyone is having a similar issue: check your audio plugin licenses. Even though nothing changed on our PC except the vMix update, something affected the link between Waves and vMix. To fix it, just open Waves Central > Settings > click Repair, and then Clear Central Cache. Everything worked smoothly afterward.

+1 for this - it was already a bit of a nightmare before 26 when trying to match up 4 mixes (with shortcuts/API having different numbers, so scripts & using something like Companion have to always be one out from each other).


I swear I had seen this exact thing mentioned in the 26 pre-release/beta thread, so I'm surprised it hasn't been corrected yet. It really needs to be more uniform. I imagine the easiest fix surely has to be adding the main mix as '0' in shortcuts etc?

Software development generally uses 0 as the starting index.
The vMix API follows this convention.

User interfaces on the other hand generally uses 1 as the starting index.
vMix also tries to follow this convention.

At this point, there is no way to "fix" this without causing even more chaos for existing users, so I would suggest for things like scripting
to use mix variables with the UI number, and then always subtract one when inputting into functions.

Hi Martin,

Just noticing we have performance issue when using Blur Effect with Virtual Input, it is very laggy and the render performance is above 300ms. When the Virtual Input removed (Effect only applies to Original Input), the render is only 10ms. Is this normal? Is there probably a Render Loop when we Add a Virtual Input with Blur Effect?

Note:
LUT is not having the issue, only Blur.

Most likely the graphics card is not fast enough.
A high end GPU is required for blur, generally a 3050 or faster is recommended if you need 2x HD inputs (including virtual) to need a blur.

You can check GPU usage in Windows Task Manager.

In the Title-Folder I have various Folders including Titles. In Version 25 they've shown in vMix under a separate Tab (Register-Card) in Add-Input/Titles. In Version 26 they just show in the Tab "All".

How does vMix 26's new multi-track SRT audio support differ to the old multi-channel audio support?

I've had issues with the old multi-channel method where 8 channels of audio can work fine for an hour then suddenly go out of sync with the video, and with an added stutter. Stopping and restarting the SRT output on the sending side usually fixes it.

I'm wondering if the new multi-track feature will improve the reliability.

Just an FYI - and maybe just checking - vmix.com not working in browser - Can download if going to Download URL instead, but Update portion of VMIX itself seems to rely on hitting https://vmix.com and fails to check version.

Could just be my end...but just wanted to advise just in case you have a DNS/Proxy issue.

First of all, thanks for the update! :D Lot's of new goodies.

[EDIT: I apologize for that I initially did not understand that "Position dropbox" implies this new feature only applies to that particular setting in vMix. So my remarks below are mostly not really valid. But I leave them as they were in the hope that they address some related issues]

One of these is "Input names now appear in Input Settings - Position dropdown". A huge step forward, but causes a little bit of confusion on my end.

To begin with, it seems only to be true in some cases (e.g. when adding the SetOutputFullscreen shortcut) but not in Settings/Outputs or the Fullscreen dropdown on the main menu. (Anyone who knows me I would love to have it there, combined with a checkbox for "Assign Shortcut to Input number").

Furthermore, and maybe this is an old issue that I have not thought about before. When setting the shortcut SetOutputFullscreen it is possible to select an Input (with number and name), deselect "Assign Shortcut to Input number", AND specify another input by its name in the Value field. Seems the latter is ignored, but it would be logical if the Value field was dimmed in the new scheme of things.

On a side note, on the much improved Web help: /help still redirects to /help26 (but maybe that's with a purpose).

cheers,

/richard

I would like to report a small bug that has been present for some time. I use instant replay on one camera only. Often during the live broadcast I happen to create a copy of a clip, perhaps a goal in a minor cut with a duration of seconds. To distinguish the two files I rename them for example "gol 0-1" and then the shorter version "gol 0-1 cut". Maybe I do the same thing for "goal 1-1" etc etc. What is the problem? If I go to select the renamed files to copy them on a second page (instant replay has 20 pages) and for example I copy the two files on page two, the name copied on page two is changed bringing the two files back with the same name.

sorry for my english, i used google translate :-)

The current shortcut limit is 300, do you have plan to have more than this?

Thank you
