A client wants to have a Ticker with "BIG TALL LETTERS" scrolling as pre/post-show.

It doesn't matter which ticker I use (GT Ticker included in vMix or newly made with the GT Title Designer) the Text gets cut off at some point.

Here is a sample picture:

I have the Alphabet scrolling and the R gets cut off somehow.

Screenshot of problem

To recreate the bug, create a ticker, change the font size to 565, and have a longer text of around 24 letters. If you have "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ" as the text the ticker will start cutting off letters after the letter V.

I wasn't able to find a fix. Changing Box-Sizing, Type or Compositing Mode doesn't change anything. Only the font-size does.

Thanks!

Seems to be font/size related ( maybe the ticker has a max textlength in pixels)

With Arial i get to halfway V, others go further (same size)

Yes, that's what I thought as well. Wondering if the textlength in pixels can be changed.

not an option. As described client wants "BIG TALL LETTERS". And it is clearly a bug. Even with a smaller font size it cuts off eventually.

Agree is sort of a bug (a job for vMix team to check out or eexplain as to why)
On the other hand I personally would not want to try to read a ticker that size (Many words would not even be completely displayed as a whole) . Not everything a client wants is for the best, your job is to point that out

Maybe follow workaround helps:
Use small fonts and use the zoom in position setting to expand the ticker in the size you need.
