Andrew Haley shows us the 5 simplest ways to make Live Scoreboards in Wirecast.
Let’s start with the easiest way. Literally, the simplest, most low-tech thing you can do is to point a camera at the actual scoreboard. If you only have one camera, then just pan over to the scoreboard during pauses in the play action. If you have a second camera available, place it on a tripod and leave it permanently framed on the scoreboard. Then you can cut away to it, or better yet, use the magic of Wirecast to crop it, resize it, and put in the corner of your main play-action camera angle.
- Requires dedicating camera time
- Doesn’t look as professional
TIP! Add a “drop shadow” to your PiP to make the scoreboard shot pop off the background a little and be more legible. Wirecast has extensive drop shadow controls in the Shot Editor Panel. Click here to read the full article.
