LiveText Functions

Greetings, I'm not a CG operator, so my apologies for what is likely lack of experience.
I just purchased the 2 Elite with the integrated LiveText software. I have a specific need that I don't see possible with the software.
If I build multiple full page graphics, can LiveText dissolve from one to the next, outputting on one channel?
If I use the stand-alone version using an NDI connection (which is preferable), can that same function be done? I don't want to have to transfer all the full page graphics into the frame store or DDR.

Standalone LT does not directly support transitions between pages. If, as for example in a classroom setting, you want to have an outboard CG station, you would assign the LT output to a DSK and transition it on and off as required.

I'm not sure why not. It takes moments to add virtually any number of CG pages into a DDR, and you can then transition these in and out for a predetermined duration using Autoplay and a DSK layer - with a single button press. Alternatively, if you want a direct transition from one CG page to the next without removing them from the program, you can do that in a DDR too.
