A quick shout out to Marty of The Academy of Lower Thirds for his help today with our Chyron MosaicXL2 graphics machines. Marty is a true professional with a deep knowledge of the products he supports. Thanks Marty, and look forward to working with you again sometime!
J Marty Dormany and The Academy of Lower Thirds is always there to help in any way possible, even when the company of the product I'm trying to use can't. And today, yet again, solves another #chyron mysterious issue. Thanks Marty!!!
Good afternoon. Someone asked me about #XPression training for freelancers yesterday. Do you guys offer this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Hi All! I have a #Vizrt coding question I'm hoping someone can help me with. I've got a script that calculates points as an individual advances through competition, followed by a comparison that will flip rows if they jump someone in the standings. Because the software we normally pull this info from uses commas in any number over 999, I also need this script to add the comma after calculating the new points total or the comparison doesn't work. I've exhausted all of the scripting I know to attempt to add the comma, but keep failing. Does anyone know how I can do this? Thank you! #TVGraphics #Vizrt
Hey everyone. I was just wondering what people are using for map creation. What have you used that you preferred and why?
Dear Chyron gurus: I have a question, on a piece of equipment I've never seen before. On a Channel Box, the scene is set up to receive temperature and conditions from a weather site. The site side is forcing httpS- is there a workaround?
