Hi,

When I display a ticker the text has to clear the screen before it loops so you have a big gap between the end of the text and the text starting again basically the width of the page. Is there a way to reduce the gap between the end of the text and the start of the text again?

Hi Frank,

If you right-click on your ticker input and Choose Title Editor, you'll notice a clock (Duration). If you click here, you can choose the duration.

Hi Rudy,

The duration isn't the problem it's the fact that the is a blank line at the end before the loop starts again. The ticker I want to show is a list of current prices and after the last price on the list has to disappear off screen before the first price reappears when the loop happens.

As to duration it would be better if this was changed to speed as the length of the text file can change but we don't need the speed to change because of the length of text. At present if I only have a few prices the crawl speed is slow but if I have a lot of prices the crawl speed is too fast.

These things are being addressed in the feature set of the new GT Title Designer in vMix v22, so in a month or two you will be able to try it when the first beta is released - final version expected around the time of NAB in April.

Looking forward to the new title designer then! The only "solution" I've found to this is to copy and paste the text to its maximum value so the loop issue is less frequent. It's not elegant at ALL though and annoying to update.

Hi,

Just a thought of how I've solved similar issues in the past. Try duplicating the input (virtual input of it) then use triggers and timings on them to alternate between them both. So set the trigger on each to be on "Transition in" with a suitable delay to allow the active file to play through to the blank spot. Rince and repeat by making them trigger each other. Hope that makes sense and helps till title designer drops.
