Aurduino to wirecast coding help

Hi everyone, I’m new to coding and I am trying to make a small replay remote with two buttons record and stop record buttons that can be used on wirecast, I have a 2 button circuit that I can make and connect to my aurduino, and the c I believe I need to interface the aurduino with C# in visual studios, I’m not sure how then to connect wirecast and the audrino? Any help would be appreciated

Many thanks

You can use 32u4 or SAMD micro based Arduino boards with the keyboard Library to make a custom hotkey controller for wire cast this would be much easier to code. you could also control many other functions you can also parrot with the midi library so the button could send midi command and a hotkey command at the same time controlling multiple functions.

Hi, thanks for the reply, so I’m not very good at coding, so I could have a 4 button remote as show in the image which could relate to certain hot keys such as start recording, end recording for a replay for example? Any help On the coding and wirecast would be much appreciated

This is a pretty good video with some code you can modify pretty easily. Also you need to make sure you’re using and Arduino with built-in USB so not a Arduino UNO


Hi,

Thanks for the video, if I am correct once I do this and the arduino is doing the keyboard fires, if I set keyboard shortcuts on wirecast I’m guessing pressing the button on the box will fire the key and do the keyboard shortcut?

Many thanks

Yes you are correct!

Hi,

Thanks, I don’t realise it would be that easy, would you know how to add like a jog dial or similar to make like a video go back like a row lay remote would etc?

Many thanks
