Alright, so it’s finally time to show you the project I have been working on this year. Dear CasparCG community, I am proud to announce the release of the Loopic - the tool for creating CasparCG HTML templates!
This year was challenging for all template developers in the community. Flash has been completely removed which caused a lot of stress for all of us. HTML templates were the only way to go, but the workflow was still very painful. To go with bodymovin/Lottie or no, to go with custom JS libraries or no, to go with animated SVGs, canvas, or even pure CSS… Well, you should not worry about this anymore.
This is where Loopic comes - it is the first WYSIWYG HTML templates builder with CasparCG support out of the box. You can now create graphics directly from your web browser and export them as a single-file CasparCG graphic!
No more plugins, no special programming knowledge required, no installation, very easy to use and fast - just a super brief overview of the app.
Due to its complexity, Loopic is officially under the BETA version. If you notice any bugs, or if you have any feature requests - you can find the feedback link at the bottom of the Loopic app. 80% of the features template developers need are already implemented in Loopic, but I am looking forward to making it 100% very soon, as well as on improving user experience and existing features.
I work as a template developer and for me, the Flash era is finally completely over - Loopic is the way to go. Check it out at https://www.loopic.io/ and let me know what you think!
To make the learning curve of Loopic as easy as possible, there are tutorials and API documentation. You can check it all on the docs page - especially this one for the basic CasparCG template.
I highly recommend you to go through the tutorials section, and also to check the basic template project demo from the quick start popup - it will take you few minutes, but you will get a good understanding of how it works.
