I have a question:... Can you add audio level meters to your audio faders....this would be a great asset, especially when using the Panel Builder on the same PC as vMix.. also, I see that you mimick the tally in vMix, but sometimes that need to be reversed....You fixed the audio 'MUTE', but for the player icon buttons, can you do the same....I wish they were clear, and only show the tally colour when selected, as now, they work opposite....especially the 'PLAY/PAUSE button...and still, 'FULLSCREEN' does not tally ...it remains the same colour.....this is the PC version, as I do not have Mac......

Hi Joeboe,

I'll look into adding faders but it will surely add additional CPU usage in order to get accurate readings. I'll try it and see what it does.. I don't want CPU usage to get too high especially if running on the same computer as vMix.

Currently, a "Play" or "PlayPause" button would be "Gray" or transparent (if the icon is a .png), when using an IconButton. It should change to the selected color when tallied... I'm not sure if you want the opposite ?

As far as the "Fullscreen" issues you are experiencing, I can't seem to duplicate it. It appears to work ok here on both Mac and PC. Both "Fullscreen" and FullscreenOn" commands tally correctly. If you are using an IconButton, don't forget to select a Tally color. The default when creating an IconButton is "Gray", so it would stay Gray if no color choice is made.. Just something to check. You can always PM or email me if it's still not right.

cheers,
Richard

Update: 2.0.34

- added VU meters to Faders. They will behave like vMix VU's. You can turn them all On/Off or hide the "muted" Vu's if you wish. (settings in Preferences)

- added "Invert Tally" checkbox to Buttons (in Edit InfoBox). Each individual button can now have an inverted tally if desired. For example, this can be used to invert tallies on commands such as such as "Audio" to behave like a 'mute' button instead of 'channel On' button.

cheers,
Richard

Tested and working great....Keep the good work up .....This is the Only switcher I am using now....No unused buttons, Icons to match the type of inputs, colours to my taste....a Fantastic program....Only drawback is that I have to setup each input, as they do not automatically link, which can be understood, as it is a Third Party plugin....

All is well....working great....but, yeh I always seem to find a but....is there a way to manipulate the 4 positions in a Virtual Set....this would be a great asset, as I have to return to the vMix UI to make any selection....I can easily make virtual inputs to simulate that, but if it is possible to do that from the Panel Builder, it would be great

I just realised something that I forgot to mention in earlier posts....I find that the speeds of transitions do not change in the Panel Builder....I slowed down my 'Merge" transition in vMix, but when I use Panel Builder, the speed remain fast....is this a bug, or can this be fixed....as a mater of fact, none of the transitions react to the speed change....I have them set to a slow speed, but Panel Builder has not reflected this change...

Hi Joeboe,

Glad to hear that things are are well. As far as the 4 camera positions in the Virtual set goes, unfortunately there is no information available in the vMix API for that, so I cannot make it respond within Panel Builder. As you mentioned though, you can create a virtual input for now. As time goes on, there may be more information provided in the API for that and other functions, but for now I'm sure Martin has other priorities. Especially with the new vMix22 version...

As far as transition durations goes, when you change the speed in one of the 4 vMix preset transitions, the speed is saved within the selected vMix transition button, and not within the individual transition commands as such. Therefore, set the command in Panel Builder to (Transition - Transition1) or whichever one of the 4 presets you have your Merge function assigned to. That should do it.

I might add a 'Duration' field in the next version that would allow you to select a specified duration for individual transitions..

Have a great year in 2019,

I will try this method.....and I do hope that you can add duration to your effect buttons, as it will help not having to return to vMix every time I need to do something...



EDIT: Yes it works.... But still have an issue with Fullscreen....the Tally does not work...

Hi Joeboe,

The "Fullscreen" tally appears to work correctly here..

Are you perhaps using the 'FullscreenOn' rather than the "Fullscreen' command in the button ? Typically when programming Buttons, you should use the 'toggling' type of commands such as "Fullscreen' or "Audio" etc.. This way the tallies will reflect the actual status of the function when the button is clicked on and off. The "on/off" type of commands are mostly used for scripting and not so much for buttons.

ps: If you are actually using the "Fullscreen" command, then something else might be going on. Send me a PM and we'll try to sort it out.

thanks,
Richard

Can you email me the template file. I'll have a look to see what's going on.

I just tried using the Panel Builder on a laptop, and it would not register with vMix .....I typed in the 127.0.0.1, but it still would not communicate.....vMix 21.60.....I do not know why, as it is working great will other setups I tried it on....from vMix 19, all the way to the last ver, 21.60, and it is only this version that I am getting issues with, on a windows system....wanted to give it to a friend after he saw how I have it setup and working....

Is vMix installed on the same laptop as VPB?
If yes, might be a firewall issue or try to use real IP address.
If no, use the IP address of the vMix host.
