I am using a TriCaster Pro to webcast football games. I would like to insert the game clock in the corner of the screen. I realize I cannot key in one live shot on top of another with the Pro, but I do have a potential solution: Using a separate PC, I can use a camcorder via firewire to display on the PC, then use iVGA to make it essentially a fourth live input. I can use a green Powerpoint slide to key against. What I haven't been able to find is a plug-in for Powerpoint that allows the insertion of a camera feed into a slide.

Every player I have tried has a border around the picture (with play controls and such), which won't be acceptable. I need a borderless overlay of the firewire input on top of a green Powerpoint slide. I can then key the live game in and be on my way.

Any suggestions? Also, is there a kludge to approximate tally lights for the Pro?

Maybe I'm missing something, but the complex workarounds would seem to me to justify the 2.0 upgrade, which would provide a number of approaches to the problem.

Absolutely. However, upgrading may not be an option, due to monetary limitations.

If only that were true for the Tricaster standard model as well...
