Is it possible to have a vMix clock that counts to a specific time, more than 24 hours? If it’s Monday, how do you build a clock that countdown to Wednesday at 3pm? I’ve tried using different combinations of the MM:DD:YYYY but I can’t figure out how to you configure the syntax?

Thanks for the help Doggy, but I don’t think I explained myself correctly. For the countdown display, I’d like to have the total hours until the event. So it would be greater than 24 hours away. So an event happening three days from now would add 72 hours to the clock and it would display as “75:30:10” with hours, minutes and seconds displayed as the countdown.

Hello i dont know if possible directly in vmix but i can suggest you a workaround to do what you need. You can use this app https://github.com/dlamon1/clockotron/releases/

it works with vmix simple text title in which you can add as many hours you need

vMix Script:

Code:
Dim enddate As DateTime = DateTime.Parse("2024-1-15 04:00:00")
Dim startdate As DateTime 
Dim ts As TimeSpan
Dim count as string

Do while true

startdate = DateTime.Parse(Date.Now)
ts = enddate.Subtract(startdate)
count=CStr((ts.Days*24) + CStr(ts.Hours)) & " Hrs, " & CStr(ts.Minutes) & " min, " & CStr(ts.Seconds) & " sec"

'API.Function("SetText",Input:="14",SelectedName:="Headline.Text",Value:=count)
console.writeline(count)
sleep(1000)
loop
