The Title input is a quick and easy way to bring in Titles and Lower Thirds into your production.

Each Title input can have its own customisation text and Title Presets can be created to make it easy to

change the text of a title during a production.

You can select one of the many built in Title Templates or build your own using the vMix Title Designer.

The text in each template can be edited through a right click menu on the Input.

Editing Titles (Text Editor)

Titles can be edited from the Text Editor right click menu (see above)

The four icons, from left to right are:

Decrease Font Size
Increase Font Size
Font Colour
Duration (To set Ticker duration)

Live Mode

While the Live button is green, all text typed into the Title Editor window will update the title in real time.

Click the Live button to display live updating and click it again once all changes have been made.

Title Presets

Click the + button to save the text from all the elements in the title as a preset.
This preset can be selected by right clicking the input in the main vMix window to recall these values at any time.

Title Presets can be Imported and Exported in CSV format using the Import and Export buttons

Countdown Timer

The countdown timer can be used to automatically update the title with a timer that runs either in reverse (countdown to 0) and optionally forward.

To specify the countdown parameters click the Settings button to bring up the Countdown Settings window.


Specify the duration in hours, minutes and seconds the timer will count. For example 00:15:00 for a 15 minute timer.

Stop Time (or Start Time when in Reverse mode)

Specify the to either begin or end with depending on the countdown direction.
For example, in countdown mode with a duration of 15 minutes, if the Stop Time is set as 00:05:00 (5 minutes) the countdown will run from 00:20:00 to 00:05:00 and then stop.

In reverse mode the countdown would run from 00:05:00 to 00:20:00.

Display Format

Specifies how the timer will be displayed within the title.

When the display format is set to mm:ss or mm, the hours remaining will be added to the minutes display, for example 120:30 for 2 hours and 30 seconds.


Change the direction of the Countdown so it counts up instead.
