Auto Play/Audio with Mix transitions

For clearly stated reasons Mix transitions do not follow the general input rules of autoplay and audio.
In the latest vMix video Tim gives some options using shortcuts and triggers.

Here is another option example:
There is no check to see if the Mix is in Output, in overlay or part of a multiview or even check on multiple Mix inputs in this script but are easely added if so needed. Am sure you can figure it out how to add ;-)
And yes there will be a slight action delay if one uses other transitions than Cut in the Mix (obviously)

This an auto variation of https://forums.vmix.com/...ng-for-Dummies#post97309

Code:

dim MixNumber as string = "2"
dim oldactive as string = ""
dim Mactive as string = ""
dim Mpreview as string = "" 
dim x as new system.xml.xmldocument

do while true
  x.loadxml(API.XML())

  Mactive = (x.SelectSingleNode("//mix[@number='" & MixNumber & "']/active/text()").InnerText)
  Mpreview = (x.SelectSingleNode("//mix[@number='" & MixNumber & "']/preview/text()").InnerText)

  if oldactive <> Mactive then
    API.Function("Play",Input:=Mactive)
    API.Function("AudioOn",Input:=Mactive)
    API.Function("Pause",Input:=Mpreview)
    API.Function("AudioOff",Input:=Mpreview)
    oldactive = Mactive
  end if

loop

This topic has helped me a lot. Thanks to all who contributed with ideas and code.

I'm looking for a way to change a title's headline to a random row on an excel data source. It's a hot chair thing, the person selected goes to the "hot chair" and does it's thing.

So far :

Code:
dim gen as system.random = new system.random()
dim v = gen.Next(1, 100)
dim i = Input.Find("chair.gtzip")


now is the part where i'm stuck.

how do i pass v as the third argument of DataSourceSelectRow?
Code:
API.Function("DataSourceSelectRow",Value:="Excel/CSV,Participant_List/<random>)


Thanks!

string concatenation !

Code:
API.Function("DataSourceSelectRow",Value:="Excel/CSV,Participant_List," & CStr(v))


Put in a test though to stay within the limits of your data source row count ;-)

Hello guys,

I am still learning in scripting and i find myself in dead end.

Is there anyway how to start transition in/out of GT title. I tried " API.Function("TransitionIn",Input:=2)"


Only way i can do it is via mouse click in small window as i show in picture.
T-transition-in-out.png (10kb) downloaded 1 time(s).


I need to do this because i use titles via MULTIVIEW and not via DSK for our produciton.

Maybe i just missed something maybe not
I would appreciate any advice

Worked like a charm. Really need to get back to my VB roots! Thank you for your help.

I'm no expert, but let me see if i can help here.
Try:

Code:
Overlay.Find(2).In("Title 0- The Classic Blue.gtzip")


you can also automate the transitions a bit.

Code:
Sleep(5000)
waits 5 seconds

Code:
Overlay.Find(2).Out
Disables Overlay 2. Give it a try, let us know if it's what you're looking for!

Hi guys,
Is it possible to quickly swap the contents of 2 text fields? I am trying to simplify the scoreboard controls.

Title1 = XXX
Title2 = YYY

swap

Title1 = YYY
Title2 = XXX

Sure. Read the content into varables and put them back switched. There is enough code examples in this post to achieve this.

Don't see what is simplifying scoring with this

After reading the thread and copying tidbits from other solutions I came up with this.

Swap 2 text titles

Code:
dim xml as string = API.XML()
dim x as new system.xml.xmldocument
x.loadxml(xml)
dim player1 as string = (x.SelectSingleNode("//input[@number=1]/text[2]").InnerText)
console.writeline(player1)

sleep(500)

x.loadxml(xml)
dim player2 as string = (x.SelectSingleNode("//input[@number=1]/text[4]").InnerText)
console.writeline(player2)

sleep(500)

API.Function("SetText",Input:="1",SelectedName:="name-left.Text",Value:=player2)
API.Function("SetText",Input:="1",SelectedName:="name-right.Text",Value:=player1)

In our event players will be switching sides many times. So you have to quickly rearrange them without manual retyping.

a little easier to retrieve title content

Code:
dim player1  = Input.Find("Name").Text("Headline.Text")

There isn't one hence.

Guess because 4 stingers isn't enough? One can use this age old alternative for more (without scripting)

well, I have a show that would like to use up to 9 of them, depending on which set of questions is chosen. Thanks for the tip tho, already worked with this alternative :)

As this is about scripting ... once can script the same proces instead of using trigger and/or use DynaminInput (to keep it simple have your stingers no variation in duration ;-)

Hey everyone,

I'm just a patchwork-scripter and I'm currently stuck trying to compare files from a VideoList-Input to files of a specified directory on the computer. The goal is to add all files to the VideoList-Input, that are in this directory - but currently being not part of the VideoList-Input.

What I came up with:
- create a list-array variable, that's expandable
- loop through all "item"-nodes inside the "list"-node of the specified input in "API.XML()"
- add all paths (InnerText of each item) to the list-array
- loop through all files in specified directory
- if a file is not in the list-array, add it to the VideoList-Input

I have almost every bit. I can get all items of that VideoList-Input, I can get all files of that directory and add any file to the VideoList-Input.
The only bit that's missing is dealing with an expandable list-array.

On the official docs.microsoft.com I found this (would be the ideal solution for my approach):
Code:
Dim salmons As New List(Of String)
salmons.Add("chinook")
salmons.Add("coho")
salmons.Add("pink")
salmons.Add("sockeye")

And lots of people online using the same structure.
But I couldn't get it to work in vMix. It always "errors" trying to save the script. Is this even supported in vMix-Scripting?

If there is someone able to help me out, that would be insanely awesome. I also would love to know if there is maybe a more elegant solution.
