    LiveText Facebook Chat

    I've spent the morning trying to create a Facebook chat LiveText that can emulate the Social Media one provided by NewTek. I have a nice white rounded background with the FB logo in the upper left but am not able to get the text to wrap and fit in the background. I'm using %WebKey 01% from Chrome for the text.

    I've tried left justified and paragraph text. It looks correct in the LT editor, but the texts frame position is way off when I bring it into my 460 running AE3 191008 or doesn't show at all.

    Any help appreciate or even better if you could PM me if you have one with source assets and the .cg file you'd be willing to send.

    Thanks so much!

    There is a trick to this. You need to type in LiveText a bunch of dummy text to fill the number of lines of the text box you want to fill. Then import that .cgxml into TriCaster and put in your DataLink key and it will word wrap.

    Here is what you could create in LiveText.

    Then one imported in TrICaster, edit the text with your DataLink key.
