Camera Audio Got Me AGAIN

I just sent this request, but I got burned again by camera microphones. I use a mixer for my audio, and I don't want the camera's mic to be turned on. Yet, if you forget to turn the mic off, you're screwed with the echo and clipping. 

I just asked if a setting can be added to Preferences that - when checked - will add the camera and turn off the mic. That way, users can choose what they need. 

It ruined a live stream I had. Luckily, I have followers that alert me to these situations. Still, my unboxing video is pretty much hosed. Watch for yourself (queued up).

  • Make sure you've included the link to the example of the issue and your description of how you would like it to work. Otherwise add that after you get the case number.

    For others who want to send in a request for this as well.

  • Already got a response, which was a little concerning... 

    Wirecast does not recognize the audio source coming from the camera, unless it is a USB webcam. In most setups, it is brought in via the capture card, or, like in your case, the mixer.

    When you add a shot from the new camera, what is listed as the Capture Device you are selecting?

    I was using my NDI Spark, which will capture audio from the Sony HDR camera I was using. Besides, I wasn't expecting a troubleshoot session as I put in a Feature request.
