UP Deck

Semi-free UP Deck 2.1.5

#21
MacTartan updated UP Deck with a new update entry:

Backup / Restore and Hotkeys.

Mobile app, Desktop app and OBS Lua script have all been updated and tagged V1.4

Backup the current deck layout to your mobile device, or to your desktop / laptop. Mobile backups allow you to switch decks quickly if you have multiple deck layouts and desktop backups allow you to share decks between devices by restoring them to whichever device you connect with.

Use OBS hotkeys to simulate pressing the deck buttons. At the moment, this treats all buttons as normal buttons : toggle buttons...

MacTartan updated UP Deck with a new update entry:

Live action replays while you stream.

Turn the whole tablet into one big button - then tap anywhere on screen to record an instant replay using the OBS replay buffer. Take as many replays as you like, then select and replay your best moments during your stream. Buttons can also be programmed with actions that press other buttons.

More info on action replays : http://8up.uk/docs/Action_replays

A couple of minor bug fixes as well...
  • application error after editing button then swiping screen.
  • pressing...

Again (already wrote on Reddit that this was the quickest I ever hit the "Buy app" button in a long time), great job.
Up Deck solved a long standing problem by providing support to switch source filters on and off on the fly.
Now I can use an alpha mask on my webcam feed and quickly turn it off when switching to a different scene where I need the camera without the mask. Awesome. So much fun. Looking forward to future releases.

MacTartan updated UP Deck with a new update entry:

Replays, Countdown timer, User input, Morphing

An update to the action replay panel means you can now select a set of files by filename : replays taken during gameplay, pre-prepared news articles, etc...

'countdown' command allows you to use a text source as a countdown timer and, optionally, trigger a deck button when the timer reaches 0.

'input' command asks for input which is stored in the deck and available to use in button commands. Input is also stored with the deck when you create a backup and recovered when you restore. An...

Great little app. Is there a way to start or stop recording or streaming as a part of a scene switch? In my case, I'd like to turn on recording as I transition to my title scene....

There are multiple ways to do this, one is to add the BUTTON command that will call/trigger the RECORD or STREAM button from updeck to your button with SWITCH (to title scene) command.

also check the COUNTDOWN and KEY command

Auto start/stop recording to a scene switch is great idea! I might also do that too but probably some other command for the delay

Thanks. Deck BUTTON looks like a simple way to do this.

I only started using your app on Friday (3 hours before we went live) and I had issues with sending KEYstrokes to manage paging through an image deck so I backed away from that. Next week, I will explore in depth. I've also been looking at the LUA script. Is there any risk (other than overwriting) to extending it with additional commands? I found myself typing certain sequences over and over and I'd like to be able to just 'call' them as I need them.

IMHO if you fully understand the LUA programming language then you can probably modify the UP DECK LUA SCRIPT at your own risk. The LUA script only defines the commands that you type on the mobile app and how it will communicate with OBS to execute it. You can also set different LUA scripts to every OBS scene collection you have.

I found myself typing certain sequences over and over and I'd like to be able to just 'call' them as I need them.
If you are pertaining to the Up Deck commands that you type repeatedly, you can always use the app's built-in COPY & PASTE buttons to copy a button or a single command.
And again the BUTTON and COUNTDOWN commands that can call previously programmed buttons.

Happy coding!

Is there a specific place to submit ideas? It would be nice to be able to tweak things related to text based on input. I'd like to adjust scroll speed as text is entered. (basically be able to make it 0 for short text and a non zero value for longer text.)
 
#36
Thanks. I want short bits of text I enter on the fly into a text field across the bottom of the screen to not scroll sideways, since it isn’t needed. Longer bits will need to scroll to be read. In the meantime, I’ll try and figure out how to accomplish this with 2 text fields (one that scrolls and one that doesn’t); load the entered text into both fields and set up a button that toggles which is visible.

Yes, you can extend UP Deck with your own commands - any custom command you send from the mobile app will appear in the Lua script, so just add in some new code blocks to check for them : all named parameters like source=MyIcon get added to the vParams table and all unnamed parameters go to iParams. ( The command itself is iParams[1] )

Man I really wish you had a desktop editor for this app... I understand it was designed originally to allow people to control the stream with a smartphone or tablet, but the animation part is particularly useful in general and would find it a lot easier to be able to edit stuff directly on my computer to be setup for the UP Deck hotkeys.
