Setting the Display Duration of Assets

By setting the Display Duration of an asset, you can control the amount of time assets like images, lower thirds, titles, logos, social and donation overlays, and looping animated text are shown on screen before being automatically removed. This makes managing assets on your livestream even easier.

Note: For information on how to automatically remove timers, prerecorded videos, and non-looping animated text upon completion, check out the Using Assets With Auto Dismiss article.

Configuring the Display Duration of an Asset

By configuring the Display Duration, these assets will be automatically removed after a preconfigured amount of time.

To set up Display Duration on an Asset:

  • Open Switcher Studio on your main device.

  • Tap and hold the asset you would like to configure.

  • Tap Edit Properties.

  • Tap Display Duration.

  • Tap the toggle next to Enable.

    • The toggle will turn blue when enabled.

  • Select the time you would like the asset to display.

  • Tap the back arrow in the top-left corner.

  • Tap Done in the top-right corner.

    • Now that Display Duration is enabled, the asset will automatically remove from the livestream after the set time.

Note: You can also enable the Display Duration feature when importing or creating a new asset.
