There are two different types of content that you can share from Production Truck via social media. The first one is a screenshot of the current content of the broadcast. The second is the sharing of video clips, including clips captured from the instant replay feature. The setup and configuration is the same for both of these features.
We'll first need to log in to our social media accounts in Production Truck. Currently Facebook and Twitter are the supported platforms. Go to the Preferences window in Production Truck. On the far right you'll see the Sharing tab. Click on it.
Here you'll see a Sign In button for Facebook or Twitter. Click on each one and sign into your accounts.
Once you've signed in it will display that you have signed in. Production Truck will remember that you're logged in so this will not need to be done every time. Each account you are signed into will be labeled as Active and will display the username of that account.
Note: Twitter will flash a number after you log in. You can disregard this. Once you are logged into your accounts you can proceed to using the social media sharing features for screenshots and video clips.
Video Pre/Post Roll and Watermark
You can also set a video pre roll or post roll that will play before or after each social media post and a watermark that is present on the social media image or video.
By selecting Select on each, it will open up the finder on your computer and you can select a file.
The Video Pre/Post Roll must be no longer than 20 seconds and must be a .mp4 or .mov file. Additionally, you can toggle it between a Pre-roll or Post-roll. It will then automatically be applied to your video social media posts.
The Social Media Water will be applied to images or video clips and can be edited to where it will appear on the image. If you select the Edit option, you can customize how the watermark will appear on the image or video.
Select the Save option to save how that watermark will appear. Below is an example of how that watermark will appear on an image or video.
For more information on sharing video clips or images, please see our other Help Articles.
