During our church service live streams, I project the (white) lyrics over the camera image using luma key.
To make it clear, I also need to darken the camera image a bit.
Is there a way to add a black border around the white text (like professional subtitles) so that it is more legible and the image doesn't have to be made darker?

The source of the lyrics is a NDI desktop capture from a second PC with a powerpoint presentation.
It is pointless to do this in PowerPoint because of the black background of the presentations.

You can easy use powerpoint with a transparent background, using the free PPT NDI Tool from ted ykhwong, to find on GITHUB.
PPT NDI Tool
You add, for example, a 50% black Background on your PP.
The Tool sends the Signal via NDI to vMix, with the transparent background.

Thanks, thats a handy tool.

The keying is a bit better than in vMix, but I can't create black outlines with it.

I can't modify the presenations itself in Powerpoint because they are 3th party.
So I have to work with what I am provided with through NDI.
