Hi.

In GT Title Designer under the Data tab, you can unhide a layer. This makes it possible to edit/modify the layer in vMix Title editor, also via Data Sources.
If it is a "graphics" layer you can now change the color, and also link the color to a datasource.
If it is a text layer you can change the textcolor via the GUI, but the datafield will only link to the text itself, not the color of the text.
Rectangle color

Would it be possible to also get the text color in vMix title editor, if you enabled this i GT Title Designer?
GT color text


Kindly Aki

This has been asked here too, but I couldn't find the posts myself :-)
Answer, with example, here.
In my example, I turned off the "Hidden" checkbox" , so you can see what the shape is called and what color it is.

Hello,

i'm also hoping to change the colour of a text field dynamically using a DataSource -

Am i meant to be using as the workaround?
"Fetches the color of a shape from a GTtitle and then performs an action based on the color

Read the color of the shape from the API XML and do whatevere you like with it

Plenty of examples in Peter1000's link or scripting for dummies post
