Hi there,

I'm trying to understand how to call a transition in a Mix input using shortcuts. The vMix user guide says:

The following shortcuts can be used with an optional Mix parameter, where 1 is equal to the main mix in vMix and 2 is equal to the first Mix input.


PreviewInput
ActiveInput
Fade, Zoom, Wipe etc


If I have a Mix input with layer 5 on Preview and layer 6 on Output, which would be the shortcut to FADE/MERGE/CUT between them instead of having to click with my mouse on the button right next to the Mix input?

Thank you!

If I understand you right.... then do this to set up your own shortcut key....
1) click settings (top right)
2) click 'shortcuts'(on the left of the box)
3) click add
then follow it from there.....

I'm sorry. I mean that I want to know how to write the function that will result in: If I have a Mix input with layer 5 on Preview and layer 6 on Output, which would be the shortcut function to FADE/MERGE/CUT between them instead of having to click with my mouse on the button right next to the Mix input?

Just like I can change AudioBuses values using this: AudioBusOn Value=M&Input=21 (just an example of a function)

It always helps to be clear in asking questions!

you will need to write a script in order to check and decide what to do when your options are set and have a (existing) function perform the task you want to happen. This is NOT what the title of the post implies at all.

Functions have the same basic structure as what has to be defined when creating a shortcut

@ samermachine

The Shortcuts to use are the same as for the main vMix Output mix, you simply need to select from the dropdown which mix the Shortcut applies to when creating the Shortcut.
Mix 1 = Main vMix Output mix
Mix 2 = 1st sub-mix "Mix" Input
Mix 3 = 2nd sub-mix "Mix" Input
Mix 4 = 3rd sub-mix "Mix" Input

I think what might be confusing (at least as confusing as your combination of post title and post ;-) )is that the Main Mix ("Mix 1") is Mix=0 in scripting, "Mix 2" is Mix=1 in scripting...

So, for Mix 2:
Function=Cut&Mix=1
