Pretty straightforward one.

You can customise:
  • Percentage
  • Headline and description
  • Colours
To avoid clashing between the graphics we apply play in/out rules so if you play the graphic in while another one is onscreen, the existing one will be automatically played out first.

Please feel free to add your comments/suggestions to the discussion board.

As the next step we're looking at the option of uploading your own images to use with the animation templates.

Animation in details

Score/live timing

This animation is designed to stay on screen during the whole game showing the score and live timing. In this graphic you can customise:
  • The teams’ names. It’s advised to use short three characters long names.
  • Teams’ colours
  • Score
  • Game start time in HH:MM format. That will start the time count. For the second half add a break time (15 mins usually) to the actual game start time

Game event
This is a graphic to illustrate some event in a game - a goal scored or yellow/red card received for example.
Customisation options:
  • Team one name
  • Team one score or a number of cards
  • Team two names
  • Team two score/number of cards
  • A player’s name who scored or got a card
  • Team to which this player belongs (selection of team1/team2)
  • The event name. What actually happened - GOAL, RED CARD etc.
  • Teams’ colours
You can also use this graphic to remind your viewers about some stats of the game. If you skip the player’s name field in the control panel form you can just tell what’s the stats in a certain game event.

Substitution
The name speaks for itself here. This one is designed to show the subs in the match.
You can specify:
  • Name of a player coming out
  • His number
  • Going in player’s name
  • His number
  • Team name
  • Is it team one or team two. This will display the correct colour.

There’s some play in / playout logic implemented: if there’s a graphic on-screen and you play in the next one, the current one automatically animates out. So the animations will not clash with each other.

We hope you’ll find it useful.

And if you have your design that you want to turn into customisable web graphics, please get in touch via the discussion board. We can turn your After Effects artwork into web-based animation.

As the next step, we plan to introduce some infographics animation - bar graphs, line charts, etc.
We've released a server version of our plugin.

Here is the link to the web control panel:

Now you don't need to install anything locally. You can use the control panel to control the animation in a browser outside OBS or drop it into OBS as usual. Use a preview link for the browser source.

You can also use a phone as a controller,

If you use this web control panel within the OBS, please use Browser/OBS switch at the top of the dashboard.

New templates are coming soon. We're working on a football broadcasting templates kit - scores, subs, etc. So stay tuned.

If you have a suggestion for the types of templates you'd like to see - please post your idea on a discussion board.
