In this article, we are going to show how you can configure a Flowics Comments Fullscreen scene in Vizartist.
1. Having installed the latest version of the middleware and connected to a Collection or Flow Middleware Source. Make sure you have selected "Others" as Integration Type.
2. Save the .dp file in C:\ProgramFiles\Vizrt\Viz3
3. Have installed the data pool plugin set.
Integrating Flowics with VizArtist
1. Import the Flowics poll scene in VizArtist.
2. Open the scene.
3. Take a look at the tree and plugins that compose the scene and make sure there are no missing plugins.
4. Check the configuration of the following elements:
- Control Objects.
- Disp_Data: DataReader and DataArray plugins.
On the feedUrl path enter the local XML path.
Disp_Data - DataReader
This plugin is going to read the data delivered from the XML, like comments, avatar, username, and handle. The DataReader must be configured as follows:
Disp_Data - DataArray
This plugin must be configured as follow:
- Field Name: disp_post
- Notify Only On Change: off
- User Other Container: off
- Use Conversion Table: off
- Type: twitterpost_obj
It contains the Stage Tree Area that shows a representation of all animated elements in the scene.
To edit the animation keyframe:
- Click the Anim plugin on the Post container in the scene tree.
- It is possible to see a representation of the animation on the Stage (top menu).
- To change the size of the time range, place the mouse pointer over the bottom edges of the stage. The mouse pointer becomes a two-sided arrow. Drag to resize.
- When the Collection has two or more posts, automatic cycling is enabled. Its default value is 5 seconds.
Keep in mind
- The number of characters supported is up to 280 characters but it has a 3-line space, so posts that have more than "3 enters" will not be completely displayed.
- Emojis: Keep in mind the social TV plugin TextHighlight is required to support emojis. For more information, contact the Vizrt support team.
