I have 2 PTZ cameras with multiple inputs at specific PTZ locations. I'd like to set up a shortcut / trigger that would
1. On pressing the shortcut key, actually a StreamDeck key, to put Camera2:PTZ-1 location into the output window. That works.
2. 5 seconds after C2:PTZ-1 goes to output window, send Camera1:PTZ-1 location into the output window. I've set this up this trigger on C2:PTZ-1 input as
Trigger Function Input Duration Delay
OnTransitionIn Merge C1:PTZ-1 500 5000

This isn't working. Shouldn't C1:PTZ-1 go to the output window 5 seconds after the C2:PTZ-1 goes to the output window?

Cameras 1 & 2: PTZ using Ethernet control
RTSPUDP rtsp://
RTSPUDP rtsp://

I have no issues setting up multiple (over 10) PTZ locations for each PTZ Camera as inputs. I've set up multiple shortcut actions using a single keyboard key / standard keyboard shortcuts: move C1:PTZ-3 to output, remove overlay3, add overlay 2
Now I'm trying to use StreamDeck to put C2:PTZ-1 to output and use a trigger on C2:PTZ-1 to switch to C1:PTZ-1
Is there something I'm missing about trigger functionality and trying to use use 2 cameras in a shortcut / trigger combination with OnTransitionIn?

See https://www.vmix.com/help25/Triggers.html:

Note that in order to prevent loops, transition effects have no effect for OnTransitionIn or OnTransitionOut.
