The extension seems to be the missing piece for this. Once I had the right extension the Caspar client started seeing the Stored Data file. I just called it data.ftd but I can probably just call it whatever I want (I haven’t tested this yet though).
I found that the code needed to be formatted like the following:
<data id="Text" value="2" />
Where “Level” is whatever key you have in your dynamic template and “2” is the value you want that key to have. The data id should be set to “Text” if you’re trying to display text.
You can create any additional componentData and data sections that you need. Just keep them between the same templateData tag
In order to use the data in the template you want, just make sure your template is in your rundown and selected. Then scroll down on the left hand side to the Stored Data section.
Double click the data file you want to associate with the selected template and you’ll see the name of the data file appear automatically under Key f0.
Make sure you’ve checked “Use stored data” as well.
Here’s a picture of my client setup for this example:
Thanks for the help!
I hope this helps anyone with the same question in the future. Let me know if you have any questions.
EDIT: I corrected the points that didikunz pointed out below. Thanks for the pointers!
