Is it possible to have the cliptime and the real time on the screen while the clip is running?

We want to show this in our studio monitor so that the presentation team can see when they go live after a clip.

Pls note, you posted this question in the wrong Forunm, General discussion would be more appropriate.

One workaround that might do what you ask is:
  1. Add a new Screen Capture that captures the vMix main window, and crop/resize the part where the progress bar (cliptime) is.
  2. Learn about Production Clocks, and then Add an Input with the time you want.
  3. Enable NDI for Output1
  4. Add a new NDI Input, using Output1 as the source. And for its Multiview layer 1 use your screen capture Input and for layer 2 your clock Input
  5. Assign the NDI Input to the Fullscreen the production team can see.

Also, please take a look at, and perhaps vote for, Use the Output (aka Active) as a source for Inputs (which if implemented would make steps 3 and 4 easier/unnecessary).

I often have to do this for events and my approach is almost the same.

First, use desktop capture to get the VT clock and also create an input from the Production clocks.

Then I create an empty input using the color input set to transparent then crop and layout things as needed

I then set overlay channel 4 to only display on output 4 that is set up as an NDI output.

then i put my "clocks" input that I have built in overlay 4 and leave it there

the output of this is then displayed as needed using NDI Studio monitor wherever needed as shown below

Clocks


yes I would be nice if we could access the VT Clock without messing with screen capture

Henny, thanks for your answer on my question.

Is it possible that you give me some more details how to do?

We have not the 4k version but the HD version maybe that gives problems to get the cliptime.

Thanks sofar,

Regards, Henk
