Hi!
Trying to run a custom command on a streamdeck button in companion with "SetRateSlowMotion" but fail to make it work.
If I do a vMix shortcut it works fine. So I think I must be using the wrong setting in companion.
Also: if I run the command in the browser it does not work either.

So this works:
Replay speed 2

This does not work (string used is: SetRateSlowMotion&Input=Preview&Value=0.5):
Replay speed1


In browser I run this:
http://localhost:8088/api/?function=SetRateSlowMotion&Input=Preview&Value=0.5
but speed is not set to 50%
But I get response "Function completed successfully."

Thanks for any help with this!

Try using the specific input name/number instead of preview

FYI input number for preview = 0

Thanks for input, Doggy!
Got some progress when using input number. So making the api call from browser with:

http://localhost:8088/api/?function=SetRateSlowMotion&Input=2&Value=0.5

works!

But strangely using the same call in companion still does not work. So this does nothing:
SeRateSlomo not working

I have tried without the "0" and changing to comma but it did not help.


I use other cusom commands in companion which works so companion seems to connect as it should to vMix.

So what am I doing wrong here?

From the readme at https://bitfocus.io/connections/studiocoast-vmix :

Quote:
Using Custom Commands/shortcuts<br /> When using vMix shortcuts, please follow this syntax/layout, with space before the first value:

ReplayMarkInOut Value=5000

and if there is more than one parameter use "&" as a separator between them like this example:

SetOutput2 Value=Input&Input=3

Sounds like a Companion issue

Aaahhhh! Of course: a space before the first value!!
As always the saying "The devil is in the details" is true.
Now it works like a charm! Big thanks dmwkr!
