Hey guys. I do a lot of replay and also am I a TD on several systems. I own one VMIX replay machine and it does good things but can best be described as incomplete. I know Martin has said the next major release of VMIX will focus a lot on replay so here is my wish list.

Expanded Inputs
I would be happy with 6 in and 2 out but I know people really want 8. I would also be OK with knowing I had to have 4 on one SSD and 4 on another.

Independent A & B Outputs
This would be the biggest improvements. It's the single thing that makes VMIX not as good as some of the other and more expensive systems. There are shortcuts and tricks you can use to try to get around this but just having those independent would be such an improvement.

Expanded Audio Options
It would be nice to bring in audio to each input independently. For example a camera can get NAT sound that is already embedded in to it.

Auto Mute Audio When Playback not at 100%
This is a common option on most replay machines. This would allow you to play sound when at 100% but then not have to remember to mute VMIX every other time.

Import a Clip in to VMIX Replay
Yes, I understand VMIX is a switcher and can do this but when you are running VMIX Replay as only a replay machine it does not make sense to have to use the switcher function and to leave the VMIX replay interface.

The ability to label the Event Bins 1-8
Same way you can rename them in VMIX and also assign a color. This would be most useful for organizing a workflow. Say your Bins 6 & 7 are for team specific highlights while 8 is for your rollouts to commercial break

Not Matching Resolutions and Frame Rate
It would be nice if you did not have to match them all to the same thing. Maybe you have a couple 1080 cams and a couple 720. Maybe a couple 30 FPS and a couple 60 FPS

Play events in non chronological order
Seems weird but if you have multiple angles checked you have to play them in order 1,2,3,4, If your director says give me angle 4 then 2 you cant start on 4 then push to 2. It has to go in order.

Add a Delete Shortcut
Hard to believe but there is not direct delete shortcut. It will ask you every time if you are sure you want to delete. Most ops prefer to do as little as possible from the mouse and UI screen. This would be a time saver.


If anyone needs some more clarification on these please reply or DM me. I have seen all the improvements VMIX has made over the last few years, I know if they focus on Replay they can really make some major adjustments.

This is a good list, you are obviously an operator. Your request for importing a clip is the only one I don't see much of a need for when you ca easily map a key to play a ANYTHING in the vMix project. It would be a different workflow for operators.
YMMV :-)

Best,
Steve

Well done, a really good list.

My priorities would be:

6in 2out as I use the Blackmagic 8 way card and rarely would need more than 6, this shouldn’t overload the system too much

A+B separate outputs

to be able to allocate the audios for replay without having to go back into the settings page

Single key delete, presently set up as shortcut on the streamdeck

I use the Skaarhoj XC8 control surface with a 15 button Streamdeck which when loaded with lots of shortcuts make operation very swift.

Ability to playback at more than 100% and go to reverse without having to press a reverse key. Basically have the option to use a controller such as a T bar to go from reverse through to x3
