All of the included graphics templates include some full screen options, such as a full screen image, or full screen text.
One great use for these Slates is to start your program in the slate, then remove the slate only when all your talent are ready. This lets you have a more precise start then you might otherwise, given the many delays in online streaming (when are we live, when are my viewers really seeing their first frame, etc.).
Here is how to do it:
Create A Playlist With a Full Screen Option Already Active
If you have looked at the other articles in this section, you know that any element already Taken will be shown right from the stream start. So, select one of the full screen options, and make sure its tailored to what you want (upload an image, edit the text, etc.), and Taken so that its active.
Take Out the Slate When Ready
Now start your stream - the first thing viewers will see is the slate. Once your stream is in the state you want, and your on-camera action is ready, take-out the slate view the graphics control panel. You can queue your talent or other action to start at the same time (or just before).
A Note on Audio
Of course, on screen graphics are not effecting audio, so be careful of "hot mics". You want either just background noise, or silence before you queue in your action or talent.
