Free Animated Lower Thirds with Dockable Control Panel v.1.6

absolutely loving lower thirds! using it for allot of content
one thing i am wondering about is if i am able to use lower thirds to read text from file? so i can have a pop up style for most recent subs and what not
Hi, congratulation for the plugin, awesome. Just a question, there`s any possibility to develop this plugin for mac? Thanks a lot!
This really is a wonderful and professional tool for anyone using OBS that wants to add that great Lower Third look quickly and easily. Setup is easy and once you learn how to use the different stylizing controls etc. it becomes a snap to work with. I would love to see a couple things though if possible:

1. Ability to pause globally all timers (or pause/hold incrementing all other non-playing lower third's timers) when any lower third is triggered/playing. This could be a toggle/checkbox in the main settings portion or per lower third and would help a user who uses the lower thirds to rotate through various information panels (kind of like a slideshow) without having to worry about them colliding/overlapping with each other due to the constant incrementing of the other timers on all lower thirds; which in turn causes a kind of race condition to occur and eventually the lower thirds will collide with each other unless you manually trigger all lower thirds at startup one by one, and depending on the inactive time gap desired this means a user could end up sitting there for 5-10 minutes or more just to manually align the timers by activating each lower third by hand during the first startup cycle. This "pause/hold" would eliminate this race condition issue and eliminate the need for a user to manually trigger each third at startup to provide for proper timer spacing.

2. Ability to add a different image/file to each preset of each lower third, yes I realize that would be 40 images if you did them all, but I know for sports folks that would help a lot with player pictures etc. Currently the 4 is a little limiting, while I agree 40 might be excessive it might be necessary for some. The ability to import and set those logos through this dock/control panel would be amazing and very helpful/quick for the user. Additionally, it would be a nice feature to be able to use not only images but animated gifs or small webm/video files for each preset.

That's about all I can think of at the moment, really this is an excellent tool giving even the most novice of users the opportunity to significantly increase their production value in a matter of minutes, no programming knowledge or scripting knowledge required! This is a must have for podcasters or anyone who does Live interviews or panel shows.

Thanks for your words and the review. I'm trying to solve some of the problems you mention. I'm very interested to know how all of you use this tool to improve it. Thanks again for valuing my effort.
This is just perfect - I use on Linux but some problems with import/export but you can just add another dock with url if you need more than the 4*10 sluts for lower3rd.

What would make it perfect was if the conrol panal/dock was possible to run on another computer - so I was able to use maybe a mobile phone or tablet to control the text - facebook have some browser overlays that can do that - currently I use vnc to connect to the obs computer for acces to the control panel. I don't know what is needed to make it possible in other ways just using a browser.

Anyway this is still a great solution for lower3rds
And again a quick update! I found it a bit difficult to find the custom time button (but it's a feature I don't need anyway ;-) )
I hope you will ad numbers to the hotkeys as well (I'll send an example screenshot, cause I can't add it here). I'll drop my request in a post, but thank you for being so active on these updates. Really, really appreciate it!
I liked using the plugin it has good functions excellent
Great, easy to figure out 95% of the control panel and use it. But Need to find documentation on the Memory slots and how to Clear them though.
This is the Holy Grail of OBS Studio.
Very Good but, how to update ?
I love it, i just want to know how to add more font types :D

Hi! In the next update you will be able to add any font from Google Fonts from the control panel. In a few days it will be available.
Simple to use, great for someone who wants easy and basic lower thirds. Flexible and user friendly. Developer is quick to respond and update.
Just a NOTE for anyone else not seeing them show up - there is an issue post v27 of OBS. Please see this video for more info - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1hgpefi03M
Fantastic tool but limited in terms of number of different Thirds. 10 or even 20 would be awesome, and have default Thirds (or seperate ones) depending on which Scene Collection you are in... That would be the cherry on top of a delicious cake though... still awesome :-)
Fantastic tool, love the functionality the timer options, the option to create up to 10 variations of each of the 4 lower thirds.
:-)
It's just great to see so many requests to be build in such short time.
This is a wonderful tool that produces customizable and professional-looking lower thirds. Thanks for making this available and great that you're constantly improving it!

I have a request. Could you add 'System' to the theme colors? I have OBS use the system color scheme and any of the three options you offer make the panel clash quite a bit with the rest of the GUI. :-)
