Clip parameter can be readed at any time, make sense to read this values from clipParamsChanged Event


AutoCheckTimeCode
If AutoCheckTimeCode = True the Controller will auto sense timecode and connection
the function vtrTimeCode will be 1 if the VCR is Connected, if not will be 0, this function also call vtrStatusSense command in order to read out VCR's status codes.

0. If device is disconnected

The result of time code will be reflected at TcHours : TcMinutes : TcSeconds : TcFrames

vtrFlagInreset
You must call this function before setting any new cue up points. It resets In flag, vtrPreroll function will preroll vtr 5 seconds before cue up timecode, if flag is reseted vtr will preroll 5 seconds before the current position.

vtrEditOn
This command is used to actually initiate recording. When the device is playing, and the edit presets set by the Edit Preset command are in place, the preset channels will enter record a fixed delay after this command is received. The slave will enter Edit Rec mode at this point. It takes the slave 5 frames to enter Edit Rec after receiving this command.

vtrEditOff
This command will stop recording without affecting the state of motion of the device. Any channels in record will come out in response to this command, after 5 frames of delay. This command also clears the Manual Edit Record mode and the Select EE mode.

vtrEditPreset(vtrEditMode, vtrAudioChannels)
This command is used for selecting the edit mode and selection of preset audio and video channels. These values are used by the vtrEditOn and vtrEditOff comands.

Where vtrEditMode can be any sum of the following values: (you must declare these constants in your code)
'constant declarations (Dec Values)
Const EditModeInsert = 64
Const EditModeAssemble = 32
Const EditModeVideo = 16
Const EditModeTC = 4
Const EditModeA2 = 2
Const EditModeA1 = 1

And vtrAudioChannels can be any sum of these values, the same as vtrEditMode
'constant declarations (Dec Values)
Const AudioChannel1 = 1
Const AudioChannel2 = 2
Const AudioChannel3 = 4
Const AudioChannel4 = 8
Const AudioChannel5 = 16
Const AudioChannel6 = 32
Const AudioChannel7 = 64
Const AudioChannel8 = 128

For example if you need to set your VCR to Insert mode and TC, and Audio Channels 2 and 4 you may write the following:

'Set variable block to be used by vtrEditPreset
RS422_1.vtrEditMode = EditModeInsert + EditModeTC
RS422_1.vtrAudioChannels = AudioChannel2 + AudioChannel4
'Then call the funcion for set in the vcr the chossen values.
RS422_1.vtrEditPreset(RS422_1.vtrEditMode, RS422_1.vtrAudioChannels)
