In this post, Ben will take you through how to set up and operate the live graphics/presenter lower third on the Tricaster in the TV gallery. There is a training video below, or you can use the step-by-step guide.

Step-by-step guide

1. Check that you are using the right lower-third.

We have 2 different lower thirds which are branded for specific channels. Shef News is for undergrad students, JUSNews is for MA Students. You can switch between them by clicking on the one you need.

1. Shef and JUS news

2. Changing the presenter names

Move the slider so that it over the top of the pink box

2. Move the slider

Click on the names in the box, a red text box will appear. You can then delete the names that are in there and add in the first and last names of the presenters. Presenter 1 always goes first, then presenter 2.

3. Delete and type name

Once you have changed the names, move the slider back to the beginning and push the spacebar to play. The time to push the space bar is after the opening titles have ended, and the first presenter says “hello and welcome….”

4. Move slider back to beginning

3. Once you have pushed the space bar, you do not need to do anything else

5. You don't need to do anything else
