Session Page - MANAGE

Various TriCaster components provide filebins to permit you to manually administer files related to their projects, playlists, and so on.  The Manage icon in the Session Page provides an alternative approach to file management. 

At times you may find it useful to be able to quickly access the various files associated with specific sessions.  Selecting Manage refreshes the options pane on the right-hand side of the Session Page with a number of convenient items.


Under the label Browse, you will see direct links to the ClipsStill, and other content associated with the current session. Clicking one of these links (or selecting it with the up/down arrow keys and pressing Enter) opens a system file explorer.

You can use the familiar features and shortcut keystrokes in these windows (Cut, Copy, Paste, Rename, Delete and so-on) to manage the session content.


DataLink™ is an astonishingly useful TriCaster Advanced Edition exclusive, allowing the handling and updating of text and image data from both internal and external source for use in title pages in realtime, as well as other purposes.  Briefly, DataLink tracks variables, called DataLink keys, and their values, and updates these values on-the-fly when keys are used in title pages.

Since DataLink falls into the general realm of automation and also has access to external sources, complete coverage of its features and capabilities is found in the companion Automation and Integration Guide included with this product; but we’ll mention a few highlights as we go along in this manual as well.

The Manage group link labeled Configure Datalink Keys opens a dialog that allows you to pre-assign values to three special DataLink keys.  These session keys serve as the default first and second line text inserts and image used by many of the supplied template title pages.  (By taking a moment to populate these keys with, for example, a company name, motto, and logo, you will find much of the included graphic content ready to use for a given production without ever having to type another line.)


Clicking the Backup Session button opens a system file explorer that you can use to assign a storage location for the backup files.  A progress gauge is displayed during processing, and if necessary you may Cancel the operation.  Of course, the session to be backed up is the current session (to back up a different session, return to the Home Pageand Open a different session.
