Hi everybody, I'm here to request another two API shortcut: FadeToBlackOn and FadeToBlackOff because only FadeToBlack shortcut can be pressed two or more times and it's creates confusion with a vMix control interface custom made, so specific command to set on and off are more clear and usefull.
Thank you for your job with this amazing software!

FadeToBlack is, I think, the last or one of the last functions that ONLY has, or only appears to have, a Toggle. In my use-case, I'm controlling 2 vMix instances from one controller, and maintaining state between the two has added quite a bit of code/thought/effort, all of which are good. But still would have been improved by simply being able to say with certainty that clicking this button WILL ONLY Enable FTB or ONLY DISABLE FTB, instead of "it depends..."

Could always check the FTB status first from the api xml before executing like calling a simple small script instead

That's true, and use different scripts to represent the intent. I also have several cases where I'm using title input values to maintain state. I'm +1'ing this request for the improved future of vMix production :)

I do appreciate the suggestion, Doggy. Always quite helpful.
