Adapted lenes on Olympus OMD EM1-Mark II with Viltrox EF-M2II

Hello... I searched the manual and on this site and was unable to find my answer.

Today I used a Canon EF-mount lens with the Viltrox EF-M2 II (firmware 3.5) on the Olympus EM1-M2 (firmware 3.2) (sheesh, that's a mouthful to say). In video mode, C-AF was not available. S-AF was available, but it only works when you're not video recording. S-AF changes to MF as soon as the video record button is pressed. Is that expected behavior?

My goal is to S-AF while recording video on adapted lenses with the viltrox. Is there a way to do this?

Panasonic allows this (G7 and up all do this). On the OLY I have to use the manual focus ring on the lens, lol... I'm not going to do that when other cameras can S-AF with adapted lenses.

Thanks for your help.
