Animated captions with OBS controller and a preview function - onscreen graphics for streaming

A pack of animated onscreen captions for streaming. Starter kit includes lower third, locator, attribution and header. To customise the content and control in and out animation a control board is available.
How to use
1. Download and unzip the archive and save all the files in one folder of your choice.
2. Open OBS Studio and add a gfx control board to the OBS Docks panel. To do that go to the top menu=>View=>Docks=>Custom Browser Docks. In the Dock Name field give it a name (e.g. Onscreen...

This definitely has promise. Are you planning on adding more features such as the ability to customise the animate out seconds amount, hotkeys to control IN & OUT, ability to add images & change the caption type placeholder names when you've added multiple e.g instead of speaker 1, speaker 2 you could name the speakers to help you remember.

Good morning:

This plugin is fantastic. I download and was using it in the program installed in my church, however apparently with the new OBS update version 27.2.1 where the Docks tab was separated from the View tab the plugin is not displaying the text in the screen. Do you know how can it be fixed? Thank you very much.

Thanks for your comment. Very reasonable suggestions.
Hotkeys - most probably yes, that can be included in the roadmap
images - yes that's the plan
form titles renaming - good idea, I'll have a look at it.
Animate out duration - if it's about staying onscreen time before auto animate out, probably yes as well.

So far a cloud version (beta) of this plugin is available - https://gfxpro.tv/animPacks/newsStarterPack/controls.html

Now you don't have to install anything, just drop the web control panel into OBS or use it from a browser without adding to OBS.

Thanks a lot for your comment. I'll have a look shortly at this issue.

Try the cloud version of this plugin, maybe it can help - https://gfxpro.tv/animPacks/newsStarterPack/controls.html

gfxpro.tv updated Animated captions with OBS controller and a preview function with a new update entry:

Cloud version is available

We've released a server version of our plugin.

https://gfxpro.tv/starter_pack/starterPack.html?session=StarterPack_b707663

Now you don't need to install anything locally. You can use 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.

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...

Unfortunately, the caption is not executed in local-mode and the website cannot be reached. How can I solve the problem with the local version?

It is the Cloud version.
Hi: I added the following as recommended:
Source: as Browser (uncheck Local file - Width 1920 height 1080) URL: https://gfxpro.tv/animPacks/newsStarterPack/starterPack.html?session=StarterPack_41d928c
Docks: Custom Browser Docks: Dock name "Captions" URL: https://gfxpro.tv/animPacks/newsStarterPack/controls.html

And it works now for me.
Thank you.

Yes, this is how it's supposed to work. Please note that the last bit of the preview link - session=StarterPack_41d928c is unique for each user and generated individually in the control panel (https://gfxpro.tv/animPacks/newsStarterPack/controls.html).

And if you want to share this preview link to be used on a remote computer you can just forward it. It works with vMix as well.

Hi, by local mode you mean a machine without internet access?
No, by local I mean the version that is available for download. I have added everything according to the tutorial but still nothing happens when I want to include a text via the OBS dock, the preview as well as the "live feed" remains empty.

ok, let's try it without OBS just to check that it works at all at your end.
1. Please open the control panel it chrome browser - https://gfxpro.tv/animPacks/newsStarterPack/controls.html
2. Open preview link generated by the control panel in a separate tab
3. Play any animation in the control panel and see if that appears in the preview browser
