From my sideview 99.99% of software and hardware programms/machines that are out there and require money to have them, "is take it as it is, or leave it." If people continue to buy something and then not see what they want to see,nothing will change. If not buy, company will make changes because everything is all about money

However, to be brutally honest, there’s not one single new feature that’s compelling from our point of view. It does make me wonder what selection criteria are used to decide on forthcoming features. Basic things like audio ducking, organised input numbering and easy WAN collaboration still seem to be way over the horizon.

I guess it might be argued that if these features were popular, they’d be voted on in the Requests forum. Maybe so. However, that assumes that the Requests forum is a fair reflection of the views & needs of most customers… which may be a dangerous assumption.


I have multiple vMix Licenses and use it on a daily basis. I will also update to the latest version once released, but I too find this update uninspiring and more like a 24.0.1.xx update. This is the first major update that I am yet to try and that I am not inspired to even try. I assumed that others are excited and that is good. Hopefully the next update will be more significant, I will look forward to that.

Hi all,

Unfortunately we have had to remove a few posts that are off topic.
This is a reminder, that this thread is for submitting bug reports in vMix 25 only.

If you want to discuss the state of new features in vMix, please create a separate thread, or better yet submit a detailed feature request.
Note, that well thought out feature requests will have a much better chance of rising to the top of our consideration list.

Regards,

Martin

Hi. Testing the bundle on a preset with many PPoint inputs returns the error message attached. I have also included the preset file. ErrorCapture_v25.0.0.12_Bundle.PNG (10kb) downloaded 0 time(s). ITIL Foundation.zip (31kb) downloaded 2 time(s).


A smaller preset with only 2 small PPoints worked.

Is there any chance that the missing files warning at startup can ignore what is in the list inputs (or be configured that way)? The previous behavior was fine for us where the only profile open warnings were for missing titles and virtual sets. I can see why some would want this warning, but it's making our people think something serious is broken in the preset and adding a startup step.

We change what is in those lists (and their source folders) frequently. Operators are freaking out when this "weird warning" is popping up when loading a preset. Additionally, that dialog presents a possibility for less experienced operators to inadvertently mess up a preset. We have the operators double click on presets to start vMix so there is no dialog to select which titles / sets are loaded.

I am not positive this is a vmix 25 issue, but it did just start happening after I installed the beta.

I'm doing a VMIX AVI Recording for editing in premiere, it is a 2 hour file.

I import into premiere and I get 90 seconds.

VLC and VMIX will play back the file, all 2 hours, but premiere only sees a fraction.

I am currently testing other codecs, but that will take an hour, as the half hour test, did work fine, leading me to believe some weird issue with file size maybe? I'm really lost in this one. VMIX AVI worked perfectly for me last year.

Preset Bundles:
Finally getting around to test the main new feature that we can use.
There is little documentation on what happens on import.
It seems to bring in all of the files into:
C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Temp\vmixpresetfiles.

What if there is not enough disk space?
It also seems to put the content in a bunch of random folders.
I cannot find the actual .vmix file.

We will have to be able to at least set the path of the imported project bundle. Otherwise this will be a mess in the long term.

It is a great start, but we can't run our shows from the c-drive.

My 2 cents.
Thanks,
Steve

Small update to the above release just uploaded (25.0.0.16)
This fixes the locate file warning issue for list inputs and also allows selecting a custom folder to save files in a preset bundle.
Note that this folder is only intended as a temporary directory, bundles are self contained presets and not designed for the purposes of transferring files
to a new computer permanently.

Ahh, just installed and it says I need to pay to beta test this version, I know, I know I will upgrade eventually but needing to upgrade to test features before a release?
v24 was a massive upgrade, this doesn't seem to be so much a big upgrade for me so will leave it for a while.

BUG:

25.0.0.16

Items that are set to not be editable in GT Title Designer (Data > Hidden) are showing up regardless in vMix Title Editor in the color tab. For example, I have some rectangles that are set up as masks and backgrounds that shouldn't be visible at all outside of designer, but the color setting is showing up for them.

This is actually by design.
We carefully considered this and since all shapes are set to hidden by default, would mean any existing titles would not show up anything at all in the colors tab.
So the choice was made to display all shapes regardless for color, but also put them in a separate tab so they would not clog up the interface with endless items.

Ok this better thanks,
So the workflow is:
Open the bundle - Browse to the save location on first open.
Save the project as a new *.vmix
If to want to send the "new *.vmix" create a new bundle from here.

This works, The only other piece of complication is an ongoing pain point. You may consider this a feature request, but it is now more important with "bundle" workflow.
2 things:

1. I want to know what "kind" of input an input is when I open the gear for it. This would help a lot in bigger shows where more than one person contributed to creating the project. Just a banner at the top saying "Camera Input" or "PPT input" etc.
2. If that input is a "media" input, give me a button to just open the file location.

These 2 things will make the new Bundle preset workflow easier and make a lot more sense right off the bat.

My 2 cents,
Steve

Also when in a "bundle" show the default save and save as should be "*.vmix" here instead of ".vmixZIP"

snip zzz.png (11kb) downloaded 0 time(s).

Less confusion overall,


In fact, I think there should be a prompt to save as (*.vmix) - just after the bundle project opens.

Understood. However I would say that in some future release that this decision be reversed once people are warned about their custom titles and the stock titles are revised to enable editing (data > hidden) of whatever shapes are appropriate for end users to change.

Not only are complex titles going to have a lot of shapes clogging the color tab that no one needs to change, but I have a lot of custom titles with shapes used as photo backgrounds, frames, etc. that I absoluely do not want operators tinkering with or inadvertently changing.

Again, I understand the thinking, but I have a lot of titles that are used by less technical people and have to keep things as streamlined and un-breakable as possible. I can't be the only one.

BUG:
maybe this is filed under "if it hurts, don't do it"

When selecting OBS Virtual output as camera input - it crashes vMix immediately.

I cannot find the actual .vmix file.

Alternatively, you can rename the .vmixzip file to .vmix.zip or just .zip and open it as a normal .zip file. (Similar to doing the same to a .pptx file) You'll find the attached files and a preset.xml file that you can copy out wherever you like.

Alternatively to that, after you open the bundle (I have ver 25.0.0.16 for reference) and select the folder where the random folders go, you can go to %APPDATA%\Roaming\last.vmix to get the currently running vMix file and copy it wherever you prefer.

Finally, you can use the dropdown next to Save As to have the default be a bundle.

I hope this helps!
