I am unable to find a shortcut (function) to reload GT input. Functionally that is like right-clicking on a title and then Reload.

I am using vMix and GT in TV production as a graphics machine for one of my clients with about 25 GT titles and sometimes we need to reload them since if the image file (logo) changes in the Data Source before the event, it does not update in vMix (because the filename is the same as old image), reloading the title pulls a new version of the image nicely.

Also, having a function would be beneficial in the development process, we could set up automatic reloading of title to see the title in action on vMix while making changes in GT Title Designer.

Reloading a title also starts transitionIn animations

(Until available):
one can achieve this with Set image function ( in script called by shortcut)
What about if the script that looks for the saved time change of the image and sets the image in response automatically? (checked and does it without animations)

+1 on this request! With the option to reload a specific title by number or all titles.

Usecase: we use sheets as data source for text and image paths in titles and sometimes updates in the sheet doc doesn´t come through without a reload.

Since we like to run vMix by a Streamdeck a button called something like "update all graphics", running title reloads shortcuts to use before a broadcast would be very handy.

Again before such option is available.


Most often the title not updating is due to different image but with same filename or a EMpty text in the datasource etc
A title checks for changes in filename or textdata (or ignores when empty/not available)

A potentual solution in the mean time would be to fill the parts with different data/file and fill back with "original"
Easely doable with a small "Reload" script.
A Variation would be to check the info of the title input, deleted it, load it as new and reposition it in its original place

Even better might be to delete the title input and use the "undo" function (might trigger an update)

EDIT: Even better IS to "RemoveInput" the title input followed with the "Undo" function
