List variables are another way to use dynamic text to update your graphics.
These lists are perfect when you have lots of messages to show, or quite a few lower thirds to display during a production.
List of variables
Add all the data you need to the list, you can even change the table headings to suit your needs. By default they are set to;
Changing the title of a list column
👉next to any row will update the variables for that list.
Selecting a row on a list
Using data from your list is similar to Text variables from above.
[list1.1]- for example - for the first list and the first column on the list.
Adding List variables to a graphic
You can use any variable in a list without selecting a row.
This can be done by using
In this example, we are capturing the data from List 1, Row 1, Cell 1.
Selecting List 1, Row 1, Cell 1.
[list1.row2.cell3]would allow you to use "Intern" in any graphic.
You can import a CSV file into H2R Graphics to populate a variables list.
Sample Google Sheet
Use the first row to set the headings of your variables list, then the remainder of the CSV can be names, titles, companies etc.
Importing a CSV file
When you have created your .csv file, import that into H2R Graphics.
