I am interested in trying to set up Virtual Sets for vMix. I have worked with Virtual Sets on both vMix and the TriCaster. I saw tutorials on YouTube about the creation of the graphics and the XML file that must be included. For adding in virtual video screens there is a Color-Gradient with two colors: Red and Green; the Blue channel is void. If I understand the tutorials correctly, by skewing this Color-Gradient-Box, the Virtual Set can change the aspect and skew of the virtual TV monitor screen in the Virtual Set. But where do you get a copy of this 1920x1080px (in 16-bit color) box going from Black-to-Green vertically and Black-to-Red horizontally? I made one in GIMP, but I am not sure if the horizontal gradation is linear. From a visual look, it appears that it is not linear from Left-to-Right. It does appear linear from Top-to-Bottom.

They are called UV Maps.

There is an old post where Marting provided one containing a fullscreen UVMAP: https://forums.vmix.com/...-UV-map-create#post10663

or you make them : https://forums.vmix.com/...25868-UVmap-from-scratch

Thank you so much!! Yes, I know that they are called UV-Maps, but coming from Blender, I think of a UV-Map as something quite different. I guess they are related to Blender UV-Maps in an abstract way. Really appreciate your URL to the download.

I also thank you for the link to the GIMP tutorial. I used a somewhat different method to create the Virtual-Set UV-Map in GIMP. I will try this method also. Thanks again!!
