SESSIONS, PROJECTS AND DISPLAY

LiveText projects are launched from the Session Page in TriCaster’s Startup Screen.  After creating a new session or opening an existing one, click Graphics on the icon ring (see Section 5.3).  This reveals options and links at right, discussed previously in the Startup Screen chapter just mentioned.

LiveText uses the current session settings for output to TriCaster’s video outputs, new projects (created within the LiveText File menu or from the Session Page) and bitmap file exports.  If you use the File menu to Open a project whose settings do not correspond to the current session settings, TriCaster will attempt to display it on its hardware video outputs, if possible.

LiveText sends output from the canvas to TriCaster’s outputs continuously while running.  For this reason, the Live Display pane and associated tools that appear at upper-right (above the Pages Panel) in LiveText standalone do not appear in TriCaster’s LiveText interface.

When LiveText is running, TriCaster’s video outputs (rows 1-3) will all conform to the session format.  That is, if the project is HD, the SDI outputs will all be HD, and the analog outputs will be Component HD. 

Likewise when the project is SD, the SDI outputs will all be SD.   As there are multiple connection options for analog SD video, please refer to the following table in this case:

Row Number

SDI

Analog BNC 1

Analog BNC 2

Analog BNC 3

1

SD

Y

Pb

Pr

2

SD

Composite

Y

C

Note: It is possible to use LiveText’s File menu to open a project that does not correspond to the current session settings. TriCaster will attempt to provide video output, but it’s possible that a given monitor may not display it correctly.
