Hello guys. I'm new to Vmix instant replay (former avid fastserve and 3play 425 operator) and i'm already in love with it.
I tried to readapt the 3play CS to the vmix system but i guess it is not possible. So for now, i'm just using a mouse and a keyboard.

Could you people help me to mapp the scroll wheel of my mouse to have these results :

Scroll : Slow down or speed up playback

Scroll With Ctrl key pressed: Move backwards or forwards one frame at a time.

Scroll With Shift key pressed: Move backwards or forwards one second at a time.

(I know, it's the ShuttlePro commands!)

Look into a product called Central Control. Joe is a former Newtek programmer and all his software works together to use Newtek controllers for VMIX. Also works with MIDI devices and many BMD products as well.

It's really worth the small purchase price to have it done in seconds.

Thank you mate! That is exactly what I was looking for to re-use my newtek controllers. I'm testing it with the 3play 3P-10 and things seems promising...

Any hints about my 2nd request?

Use Autohotkey to intercept the mouse wheel and trigger the vMix shortcuts

Say you have vMix shortcuts on keys a and b to change master volume to increase/decrease (values +=1 and -=1) then the below .AHK script will trigger these shortcuts based on mousewheel movement.
Important for shortcuts to work vMix window has to be actve window (.AHK can force that to be too just in case)

Code:
!WheelUp::                  ; this is Alt + WheelDown
Send {a}                    ; Change this to whatever you want the hotkey to do
return              

!WheelDown::                ; this is Alt + WheelDown
Send {b}                    ; Change this to whatever you want the hotkey to do
return

Question on your 3Play CS, does yours have an inner (separate frame by frame) jog wheel?

I use the TYST REW-300 controller which is a MIDI but I have it mapped exactly like a 3 Play controller since I am also a 3 Play operator.

The CS has an outer wheel for a fast jog but I set the inner wheel to frame by frame control. The older 3 Play CS models have both.

I love the CS I have. I also had an X-Keys but I prefer the look and feel of the TYST better. I do already have it set for up to 8 cams.

@Radiotvpat1982
I have two Newtek CS
- 3play 3p-10 CS(with jog wheel and shuttle)
- 3play 425 CS (just jog wheel)
Fortuntely both are supported by central control. For now, everything is going well except that i can't map the "live" button
Quick question, can I use the same licence on two PC?

@doggy
I didn't use your tricks with AHK for now, i'll keep you posted.

You can use one licence on 2 PCs but you are not supposed to use them at the same time.

However, if you're using one Licence for a VMIX as a Switcher and one as a Replay machine you won't need a full pro licence for the switcher PC.


On the Live button here is one adjustment you can make. Just change your record on/off button to a live/edit button.
