I am putting together a comprehensive guide to CasparCG’s HTML producer and the development of HTML based templates.
The first part Introduction to CasparCG’s HTML producer covers everything you need to know to get started with HTML templates: we have a look at the different server versions and their HTML producers capabilities, the minimum requirements of HTML templates, and an in-depth look at the AMCP commands and how the HTML producers handles them.
In the second part Creating production-ready HTML templates for CasparCG looks at the characterists of a robust template and discovers the details of the layout and design of a production-ready lower-third template.
I had to cut the original outline for the second part in two halfs. Therefore the third and next will be all about “Scripting production-ready HTML templates”. Stay tuned!
Let me know what you think about the first two parts and don’t hesitate to leave any kind of comment here.
