What file format do they need to be in?

Do I import them a special way to the tricaster?

Are you looking to have editable templates like the ones that come in TriCaster?

If that is what you want, you need to bring your lower third graphics into LiveText, add your text in LiveText then export as a ".cgxml" file. Import the cgxml file into a media player.

If you are creating lower thirds with text and everything in another system, then export as a format that supports alpha channel (PNG, TIFF, TGA) and bring the graphic into a media player.

Yes, I want to be able to put text on them during the webcast.

Thanks!
