Set up graphics in TriCaster 4.0 or 3.2

  1. Open Titler Live and create a playlist of graphics that you want to include in your TriCaster production. For details, see Create playlists.
  2. In Titler Live, set your output to NDI.

    Want to output to AirSend instead of NDI? If you're running a Windows operating system, you can set your output to AirSend, the classic two-channel TriCaster option.

  3. Follow the steps below to set up TriCaster version 4.0 or 3.2.

    • TriCaster 4.0 — To set up TriCaster 4.0 to receive NDI from Titler Live, click the Setup button for one of the inputs, then select a Titler Live channel.
    • TriCaster 3.2 — To select the NDI channel you want to receive, click the Setup button for NET1 or NET2, then select a Titler Live channel from the drop-down list. (Note that TriCaster 3.2 supports only two NDI channels, which are assigned to NET1 and NET2.)
