Changing Title Defaults in TriCaster

June 02, 2016 by Chuck Baker

A common task in pre-production is to test a number of styles for the onscreen text and graphics. A convenience for such testing is the ability to have desired text and a logo graphic in place as you switch between style templates, and this can be accomplished with the Datalink key defaults available in TriCaster Advanced Edition. NewTek workflow expert Kane Peterson takes you through the steps to set up these Datalink keys, and switch between templates. Once you’ve done your testing and selected the style template you wish to use, you can use the built-in Graphics Editor (click on the Gear on the icon for the template) to create your full set of CG screens and overlays for your production.

If you have a style you like but need to adjust the colors of the template, you can do that by exiting the TriCaster software and going into LiveText, as in this tutorial: Custom Live Video Graphics with NewTek TriCaster.
