Hi All,

Here's the scenario. I have a college commencement coming up in a month and the client has asked me to include lower-thirds for each student as they cross the stage and receive their diploma.

My intent is to utilize Live-Text to load in a first/last name for each. I'll have 7 different commencements during a three day period so would need to have each commencement saved for fast recall between events.

My question is; is it best to utilize a flat file (ascii) and set up the LiveText external editor to send these individual lower-thirds to the Tricaster 460 or is it better to set up a SQL database to do the same thing?
