Hi,
I'm desperatly trying to create titles (with background) where the background has the same width as the text's layer width.
Is it possible to make that in UTC ? I might be wrong but it can't be done in GT right ?

Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot !
I've been using the wrong keyword for my searches... Never used "auto sizing", but "dynamic" instead. Which returns nothing
That's great thanks, but is there a way to manage those boxes' size without text in it ? For statistics for instance.

Thanks again

Like a bar graph ?

spaces are not visible in a textblock , so the more of them the longer the colored bar bounded to the textbox becomes

Exactly, a bar graph.
That was my idea to use spacing, but it seems a bit DIY :D

Do you have some software names to help out please ?
If I want to work on it on my own, like scripting/developing, do you know where I can find APIs ?

Thanks again

vMix allows you to a lot in this sense .

For one you have the legacy XAML titles where you can put a lot of code behind it .
Now with Gt titles one can do a lot if you animations combined it with vMix scripting .

There is a developers section in the vMix helpfiles about API calls etc not to mention the use of data sources in vMix

mix it all together and a bit of fantasy and you can create quit a bit of interesting stuff.

There are video tutorials and quite a bit to find back in this forum also
