Hey, so as a content creator I need to record lots of live content then return to it for a reedit later. I need a way to log important moments live so I can return later for edits on my Davinci Resolve system.

Is there any way we can get something like this - even if its just a TC timestamp with the live-contents name & date?

Maybe it would work by stamping select triggers and logging the timestamp.

For example:

I will record a two hour interview, during the interview I am switching it live, lets say I have two trigger keys for making cuts from A CAM to B CAM, both triggers perform a simple cut,
however trigger two also logs a timestamp on a record for the live stream.
When I'm preforming normal cuts purely to keep the interview flowing on the live stream I use trigger 1; but when the guest says something particularly noteworthy I use trigger 2.

Weeks later I can access the recorded content with uncut master shots, I import them into my NLE and use my log sheet to find those most important moments so I can make my short form content.


Thanks for reading

Seems to me that a solution would be to use a program like auto-hotkeys that would trigger an entry in a text file that would include the time (calculated from the start of recording) and a descriptive line. I would find a friendly developer to come up with a solution for you. Write your requirements in a user story.

There are a few options available

- a shortcut/trigger for the WriteDurationToRecordingLog with optional text value
- a shortcut/trigger to call a vMix script that can write to a textfile https://forums.vmix.com/...ng-for-Dummies#post81326

This code was literally written for me. Works like a charm. Cannot suggest it enough. The hardest part is remembering to actually hit the damn button.
