Reset Countdown clock automatically when reuse shot

Hi. I recently had a virtual event on ZOOM with polls using the virtual camera for live feed and graphical elements like countdowns,... During the polls for example, the participants did get a 30 seconds timeframe to finish, which was visualised with a countdown clock. But before I could reuse the countdown shot for the next poll, I needed to enter the settings and reset manually. This costs time and with several polls following after each other, this was nearly impossible. A manual solution for this time was to create 3 countdowns, so I had enough times to reset the other ones while one was in use. BUT it would be really great to get this somehow automated. At the moment there is only the option to zero or count up again, but having the automatic reset function included would be very helpful.

Thanks

     Hit Stop then Reset. No settings being entered manually.

    I used a program called multi timer 6 to handle that kind of stuff. You can download it at https://filecr.com/windows/programming-multi-timer/?id=136924698197. I told wirecast to capture the screen and then resized the windows to cover what I want to show. I am running 7 timers running at real time to cover each person that is talking. Then stop each timer and restart so you have a running time of each person that is talking. (Allows me to know how long each person has talked for) Hope that helps.

    Timers and couters can be found on the web as well. Some already offer a green background so that they can be added as a webpage and keyed.

    That's what he's talking about.  You can't just push the timer live again, you have to go in and stop then reset it manually.  Since Wirecast knows when the shot is live and when it's taken down an option to "reset when offscreen" would be much appreciated.

    Or treat it like a media file with an option to "remember position when not live" It's exactly the same idea.

  • Hello. Well, 5 months have passed and the necessary function has still not been added. When can you expect it to be released in the update?

      Krzysiek Sobieranski We don't have a release version for this yet. It's a work in progress.
