I would like to use the vmix to show live results for horse riding and I wonder about the best approach to control it automaticly

To get an idea of what it it should do:
The different States of the Graphic would be

No. 1: Competitor comes in (countdown starts is running)
- bottom box with rider, horsename, nation
- top right box with countdown label and countdown

No. 2: Competitor starts (time starts)
- bottom box with rider, horsename, nation
- top right box with time running
- top left box with penalties or points fades in

No. 3: Competitor finishes (result)

- bottom box with rider, horsename, nation
- top right box with time running
- top left box with penalties or points fades in
- above bottom box the current rang is showing

... next competitor comes starts at No. 1 again


The data is servered via a JSON-File (served by a nodeJs app) which might also contain status flags like
"state": "countdown"
"state": "running",
"state": "result
.
.
. and so on



My idea after playing with GT-Title Editor is to make the layouts (No.1, No.2,...) available via pages and trigger those pages with shortcuts called by api calls made by the software that generates the datasource-json


Before I start putting too much effort into this, I wanted to ask here if someone might have a better idea on how to make such an automatic gaphic work in vmix :-)

Every advise is welcome

Tie the “state” data source to a text box in a spare title then Make a script that monitors the value of that text box and then in turn triggers the appropriate title as needed,

we use legacy xaml titles for something similar , can add animations/visual changes based on the various values in its code behind (keeps things also compact in setting up)
