Among other things, the Title Editor in TriCaster’s Media Players (DDR, Still and Titles) allows you to substitute a different image for stand-in (or “placeholder”) images in Title Pages (.cgxml) exported from LiveText (working with stand-in images is discussed in Section 11.3).

When creating title pages for this purpose in LiveText, you may find it saves you time to add the string “_placeholder” somewhere in the filename of images you prepare for this purpose.  For example, you might name an image "headshot_placeholder.png", or "_PLACEHOLDER_crest.jpg".

Images named in this manner will automatically appear as stand-in images (unlocked) in the Title Pages you export to TriCaster using the Send to Live options in LiveText’s File menu.
