Set action behaviors

Titler Live comes with Action buttons to help you set the way your channel layers behave when you push them live.

You can choose from Auto, Auto In, In/Out, and Take options. Once set, you can click on the button to perform that particular action on a layer that is queued as next.

Action buttons

Auto: This mode will play the full animation of your layer. When a current layer is active, it will finish a layer's animation and animate the next layer in seamlessly.

Auto In: This mode will play the first half of the total layer's animation, skipping the "Out" animation. If a layer is live, it will automatically move on to the next layer and play the layer's "In" animation.

In/Out: This mode will take a layer's animation to the next step. For example, if a layer is currently live, it will end the animation by playing the "Out" animation. If the layer is currently queued, it will play the "In" animation.

Take: This mode will automatically cut the current layer and immediately display the currently queued layer. This is useful for quick, hard cuts or emergency situations.

Auto-live mode

Click the AutoLive actions-btn-autolive.png button to start auto-live mode. You can choose from In/Out, Auto, Auto In, or Take settings for your layer.


You can see your layers and make changes from the Layer Properties panel while a layer is currently live. You may also click on the live state button to immediately push it live. The button turns red when that layer is live.

Live-state button legend

Live state buttons can be one of three colors. Yellow, Red, or Purple.


Red indicates a layer that is currently live, where yellow indicates the next layer in line to respond to a command.

A layer that is currently live can also be queued up to listen to a command manually by clicking on the red live-state icon. This will turn the icon Purple.

This means that both your current layer and the layer with the yellow live-state icon will listen to your next action command.

Linking and unlinking graphics

Titler Live comes with the option to link and unlink layers from a channel. Linked layers are denoted with an icon TL5_Linked.png. Clicking this icon will unlink the layer and be denoted by a different icon TL5_Unlinked.png

Note: This feature is only available in the Broadcast version of Titler Live.



Unlinking layers from a channel makes them immune to action buttons and essentially separates them from the rest of the layers. They will be unaffected by any action commands unless indicated to do so. You can click on the live state icon of an unlinked layer to set it as next to receive an action.

Tip: Unlinking graphics from the channel will allow multiple layers to go live at once.
