I support a group with vMix for meetings. They use a lot of PowerPoints. Today one of the presenters sent me a slide deck in PDF format for a meeting in the morning. Short of creating a PowerPoint deck from the PDF pages, is there a way to have a PDF file as an Input in vMix?

Load it in a web browser Input.

I tried loading it as a Web Browser Input. The pages show a page plus a part of the next one, so its not ideal although it could work in an emergency situation. I haven't found a way to show the pages in full screen (just the one page in the Output) and be able to navigate through the pages. I can navigate if I have the page index showing in the Output window.

You can control the PDF viewer in the browser to show one page at at time and hid most of the controls and clutter.

He probably sent it to you thinking it would be easier to work with. I would have asked him to resend the original ppt file.
