Create crawling text

When you customize graphics in the Designer, you can apply crawl behavior to text design layers in your graphic. Text crawls from the right side towards the left side of a text's bounding box. This text crawl will continuously loop while a graphic is live from the playout interface. 

Note: The crawl setting works on both variable and static text, but cannot be combined with other animations such as keyframes or transition presets from the library.

  1. In Titler Live's playout interface, select a graphic layer from the Layers workspace.

    Tip: Want to create a new graphic? Open the Library panel and drag a design from the library to the playlist.

  2. Click the Edit Graphic button in the Preview panel.
  3. In the Designer select the text design layer from your graphic that you want to behave as crawling text.
  4. If necessary, click and drag the left and right sides of the text's bounding box to set the width of the crawl.
  5. In the NTX Playback Features section of the Properties > Layer > Motion & Data tab, mark the Crawl option.
  6. In the Crawl Time field, enter the number of seconds that you want the object to crawl.


  7. Close the Designer with the Green Checkmark to keep the changes you made.
  8. Preview the design from the Program Monitor by playing the graphic layer from the Layers workspace.
