I need a trigger which is based on whether or not an input is 'InProgram'. The vMix software definitely already has one that is used for the "automix" feature, but I also need access to that trigger to use it for functions or actions of my own. We've tried to do it using "OnTransitionIn" or "out", but that requires us to have a million triggers on every input where the source input is used in multiview. It does not auto carry over like the automix feature does. The way we do it currently, has a high risk of user error if you forget to set every multiview input with all appropriate triggers. If I could have an "on-program" trigger to the original source input which works whether it is used in a multiview layer or not just like the way "automix" works, that would fix my issue. Is there a way or a plan to make that trigger available?

Have you considered scripting ( can check if input is "InProgram")

If simple or complex situations need to be addressed and automated scripting is a tool worth learning about

https://forums.vmix.com/...86-Scripting-for-Dummies

for example

Code:
dim activeinput as string = ""

dim xml as string = API.XML()
dim x as new system.xml.xmldocument
x.loadxml(xml)

activeinput = (x.SelectSingleNode("//active").InnerText)


will give you the input number that is in output after which one can give instruction for whatever is needed by mainly using function which are basically the same as shortcut functions within a logical process

Key is though to know in detail what you want to achieve before creating a complete process

I see. I definitely know exactly what I want to happen, I just don't know exactly how to apply the scripts to vMix. I will tap on one of my techs who knows a little bit of scripting.
