Hi

I have been creating a few title sequences by creating several from the same template and changing the text in each, but I can't see how to have a different image on each. For example, I'd like a team badge when showing a player from a particular team. I can update the text strings in the titles, but not the image. Do I have to create a separate template for each different image?

Thanks

IanM

does it contain a Image field ?


For the imagefield you have to specify the image file location or browse for them in the input title editor

or base it on details from a data source (see in help file)

Thanks guys

I have used the data source, although I initially missed having the full path on the images. That works OK, but when I use the browser interface to set up titles, there is no equivalent image option. I can change the text fields and 'Add Preset' to add the strap to the list, but cannot change the image.

I would use datasource just to make your live easier. Also when using a data source you can just have it contain the name and add the location and type around the {0}

If you're not seeing the image field in your Title Editor in vMix, you may have set it to Hidden on the Data tab in GT Designer.

Good idea. I didn't know you could do that. It wasn't the problem though, thanks.

Sorry if this is a little off topic. I'm a bit of a newb, but how do you take a template like scoreboard and modify it, so you can save it as your own.

Might have been easier to start a new topic for this...

If they are the old style titles, load the title you need from vMix > titles folder, then use 'Save As' (or copy each of the xaml files in the folder). It might be better to go for the newer GT Designer editor, which has a similar File > Save As option. It is easier to animate than modifying xaml files.

darn IanM beat me to it , but as he said , its a different topic . Also in regard to GT titles, possibility to do so depends on your license regarding animations
