Hi all

new to the forum, but have been using vMix for a while now.

So far i have only been using graphics with some simple fade in&out transitions.
But now i have been tasked with finding out if is possible preprogram a title graphics to change every 5 min or so.

Specifically i would like it to change from a SMS-text information box to our sponsors logo and then change back to the same sms-text box.
And repeating this for the entire production, a preset intervals.

I know you could possible do this if you do the whole animation in after effects and export as an image sequence,
but that seems like the wrong way to do it, and difficult to change text/logo when we have a new sponsor.


Anyone that can point me in the right direction on this?

thanks in advance

simplest is separate titles (or inputs)

then trigger them to go to the other after set delay, or turn one of and turn other on or ..

or

have a script basically doing the same as above

or

one can use countdowns to switch

or

@ Andreas_oakman

I agree with doggy that using two Titles might be the “simplest” solution but you probably also have options to us the “Pages” feature in vMix GT Titles.

Thanks for your help guys.

I think you are right that the keeping titles separate and having triggers is the simplest.

I tried playlist also, but there seems to be no way to set a transition out before moving on to the next item on the playlist. So it doesnt look all that great.

Curiously in the playlist you can set inputs as overlay 5 & 6 as well. (i just adds them to overlay 1 + 2)

Wonder if its just a bug or they might be adding 2 more overlays in the near future?

any good suggestions on how to stop a triggers again?

when 1 triggers 2 which triggers 1, and keeps going, how would you stop it again?

thanks

can only manually (unselect) and you created an endless loop meaning bad logic
