I've been playing around with OBS recently, and having fun pushing various tools to their limits.
One that I've found is great, but suffering a little from lack of documentation is Animated Lower Thirds with Dockable Control Panel , so I thought I'd post a few helpful notes.
Often, the tool won't do anything if certain fields are empty. Usually adding a space to a field you want to leave blank is sufficient.
The video tutorials show how to import Google Fonts into the tool, but sometimes you want to use a font you've purchased and installed on you machine. Referencing these is actually fairly easy as the browser control is running the HTML page locally on your machine:
- Expand the Main Settings section, and "Show more" so you can see the three buttons.
- Select "Customs"
- For the custom font fill it in as:
font-family: 'Ale and Wenches BB', serif;
@import url: (single space)
It's important to include the
, serifor similar in the font family field otherwise the font name displays as
'in the other editors
You should then see your local font appear as an option to select in the lower third controls - remember that they don't appear in alphabetical order
