Hello! I assume this has been asked before but I'm not finding an answer anywhere yet. I'm running an esports show that requires image inputs to autoupdate when the file is replaced in the source folder address. Back when I sued to work with OBS, this happened automatically but with vMix it seems like something is keeping it from doing it but I can't find any settings that control this. For example, let's say I have an image input called MATCHWINNER.png, in my workflow a co-worker would create a new version of that graphic and replace the old one, having it named the exact same. From there, I would expect the file to change within vMix as well but this doesn't happen. vMix continues to show the old file, forcing me to go to the cog wheel and hit change and ok before I can use that which is very troublesome when considering that there are tons of files that change throughout this show. Is there a way to do this? We've tried replacing the files locally and via google drive but none seem to work. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your response but I have read the threads related to this and haven't found an answer to the problem. Trail seems to go cold on all related threads.

@ fabiancerdasr

I might suggest using the "Photos Input" instead, then at least you have the option to right click the Input and "Refresh Photos" and so any changes to the pictures in the folder (even if it is only one) will update immediately in vMix.

Thank you, will do! I'm pretty surprised vMix doesn't have this feature built in!
