    Creating 100+ Lower Thirds

    I have a program in June that will require 100+ Lower Thirds. Any idea how they can be created efficiently? Originally, I wanted to have one of our secretaries create a csv or xls sheet from her computer, but apparently there is no import method. Wondering if there is an alternative to typing or copying/pasting directly from the TriCaster. We are using a TriCaster455.

    LiveText support multi-page imports from text files.

    The folks at Newtek could take some lessons from Livestream on efficient ways to build 100's of lower thirds. One template and a menu system that easily lets you designate the text and can be done on the fly.

    Are you wanting to manually enter the text lines per page, or import from a prepared text file in bulk?
