Add graphics to Wirecast productions

Titler Live lets you add graphics directly inside Wirecast with the Titler Live plugin or NDI.

  3. In the Titler Live window, add graphics to the playlist that you want to include in your Wirecast production. For details, see Create playlists.

    Tip: To add an additional Titler Live shot in Wirecast, repeat the previous steps for each additional Titler source that you want to add.

  5. In the Titler Live window, click the Play actions-btn-live.png button to broadcast the first graphic in your playlist. The button turns red when a graphic is live.

    Tip: You can use Action buttons or Auto-live modes to customize the graphics' playback behaviors. For more information, see Set action behaviors.

  6. If the playlist includes more than one graphic, complete the following steps in Wirecast to play the next graphic in the list:
    1. Click Clear Layer next to the Titler Source shot. The current graphic will animate out.
    2. Click the Go wirecast-btn-go.png button to animate out the current graphic.

Add a Titler Live graphic with NDI (not available in Titler Live Express)

  1. Open Titler Live and create a playlist of graphics that you want to include in your Wirecast production. For details, see Create playlists.
  2. In Titler Live, set your output to NDI.
  3. Open Wirecast and click the Shot Tool wirecast-icon-add-shot.png icon in the Shot Selection area.
  4. In the Add Shot dialog, select Network, choose your Titler Live NDI Source, and click Add to add the shot to your bin.

    The properties panel opens for the Titler Live NDI shot.
