This function does not seem to work on an audio file anymore. I have to use SetVolume without the fading effect. However, it is still working on an AudioInput input.

Hi Michael,

Double check the shortcut has been configured correctly.
I just tested adding an MP3 file and setting up two shortcuts:

1. Value set to 100,1000 (go up to 100% taking 1000 milliseconds)
2. Value set to 0,1000 (go down to 0% taking 1000 milliseconds)

While playing the audio file I pressed the two shortcuts and the volume
faded up and down as expected.

Regards,

Martin

I am sure the shortcut is correct. When I change the function to setvolume and value to 0, it works.

I have had the problem that setvolumefade stopped working for an input and also asin a trigger. The only way to get it to work was to change the input. And selecting the same audiofile I was working with.

Note that SetVolumeFade requires two parameters not one as is the case of SetVolume.
It requires a volume *comma* then the milliseconds. If one of both of these are missing it will not work.

I have screen captured how the shortcut works on my audioinput but when I change to a mp3, it does not work. I have been using this feature for quite a while. After .68 patch, it stopped working. I am using .69...also not working.

Try converting the audio file to WAV or trying a different MP3 and see if that helps.
In .68 we added a fallback audio decoder in the case where some MP3 files would not play using the default Windows decoder.
The fallback decoder does not currently support SetAudioFade so that might explain it.

For whoever stumbles across this. It turns out that SetVolumeFade works with a period when fading in (100.3000). But only the comma works for fading out (0,3000). Funny quirk but fixed it for me.

Can anyone provide an example script for a "setvolumefade" function? I'm using the vMix Script Builder app and have had some success. (p.s. "Background" is the name of my background music input)

This works fine (of course the duration value does nothing):
Quote:
Function=SetVolume&Duration=1000&Input=Background&Value=100


But this doesn't work at all:
Quote:
Function=SetVolumeFade&Duration=1000&Input=Background&Value=100


And this is a great script that I found here, which works for fading down an audio input:
Quote:
Dim doc As New XmlDocument()
dim bgmi = Input.Find("Background")

doc.LoadXml(API.XML())

Dim node As XmlNode = doc.SelectSingleNode("/vmix/inputs/input[@title='Background']")
Dim volume As Integer = node.Attributes.GetNamedItem("volume").Value
Console.WriteLine(volume)

Do While volume > 0
Console.WriteLine(volume)

bgmi.Function("SetVolume", volume)
volume = volume - 1
sleep(10)

Loop


Any guidance would be appreciated. I'm trying to find a way to Fade Up audio, as this custom script works for now...but a reliable way to SetAudioFade would be ideal. Thanks.

it's a good idea to check the helpfile's shortcut function references https://www.vmix.com/hel...utFunctionReference.html or even the shortcut details (settings) when creating one as it clearly explains what is needed and how

Quote:
SetVolumeFade:

Set volume gradually over x milliseconds.
Value = Volume 0-100,Milliseconds


Then it will work perfectly

If still not : Value is the volume to go to comma the duration

The script was created before the function was available !!

@on_call

The following command will fade up Input named Background to 100% over 1000 milliseconds (don't put anything into Duration)

Function=SetVolumeFade&Input=Background&Value=100,1000


The following command will fade down Input named Background to 0% over 1000 milliseconds (don't put anything into Duration)

Function=SetVolumeFade&Input=Background&Value=0,1000
