Project playlist

Note for Broadcast Pix: This feature is not available in NewBlueNTX.

A playlist is a set of one or more graphics that are ready to play during a broadcast. All Titler Live products allow you to create at least one playlist in each Titler Live project, but you can create 16 playlists in Titler Live Broadcast and two playlists in Titler Live Complete.

Each playlist is assigned a tab and its own specific NDI channel. In the following illustration, the playlist / NDI channels are called Lower 3rds, Bugs, and Scoreboard.


Drag a design from the Library into a playlist to create a new graphic.

Click on a graphic in the playlist to display it in the preview and edit its values in the Attributes panel.

Trigger a graphic for playback by clicking on the dot on the far right and clicking on one of the action buttons at the top of the list. See Set action behaviors for details.

For more information about playlists and playing graphics, see Create playlists and Play graphics in a specific sequence.

Live Monitor

Note for Broadcast Pix: This feature is not available in NewBlueNTX.

The Live Monitor panel shows Titler Live's output in real-time when you play graphics from one or more playlists (also called channels). The name of each playlist appears in the top-right corner, but the name isn't visible in the final output.

Note: You must be licensed for Titler Live Broadcast to play multiple graphics at the same time.

To view or hide the Live Monitor, choose View > Live Monitor.

To change the monitor's volume, click the Audio slider and drag it left or right. (This won't affect the output.)

To set the program's output, click the drop-down list in the bottom-right corner and select an output.
