Hey all. Posting here to share a free template I made for vMix 27 and Companion 3.3.0+ where you can move between 54 different zoom looks on one Stream Deck XL (9 anchor positions and 6 zoom levels, but it also includes customizable durations for the merge moves). As an added bonus, the buttons will also grey out while a merge is in progress, so that you know when it's safe to make another move.

Thank you, this is very useful!
If anyone can't get it to work, I had to manually create a few custom variables in Companion with these exact names:

merge_duration
zoom_level
pan_x
pan_y
hot_zooms

I also needed to make a slight change to the Set Zoom 150% button. It was programmed differently from the others and wasn't triggering a Feedback color. Otherwise, this works great!

Thanks for calling out the 150% feedback not working. I've gone ahead and fixed that now! For the custom variables, that should only be true if you're importing the buttons as a page onto an existing config, and you're correct that you'll need to add the custom variables yourself if that's the case. (hopefully in a future Companion version it will be possible to import a page w/ custom variables and check for any collisions with existing custom variables)
