Hangout Lower Third Graphic - Add Your Name to Hangout Screen - set up tips


Hangout Lower Third Graphic - Add Your Name to Hangout Screen - set up tips

Using the Hangout Lower Third Banner is very important if you use Google Plus Hangouts. Find Ronnie on G+ This training video shows you how to turn it on and customize it for your use.

A couple G+ers asked me if I had a video showing how to use the Hangout Toolbox's Lower Third sub-App. I did not have one handy, so we made one. This handy tool allows you to add your name or website or whatever short piece of text you like on screen when you are in a Google Plus Hangout.

Besides using the standard options shown here, you can also build your own *Custom Overlay* graphics...(examples here: 6:00) to do so, use the size of 640 x 360 and save as a .PNG format if you have any areas that should remain transparent. You can save as a JPG, but that will totally cover the screen (good for branding) which may be what you need.

Overlay Image in Google Hangouts.

When you are watching documentaries, news or any sports show that has no text description or some sort of caption/ subtitle below the screen... totally puzzling and almost hard to follow right?

For this reason, lower thirds are added just below the lower third part of televisions or video screens (as the name implies). Lower thirds can be a mix of text and/or graphics overlaying the screen, purposefully added to give audiences a quick idea of who or what they see on their screens.

Lower thirds are widely used in television news and documentaries. They provide a quick introduction and promote longer retention of words read than merely said.

In video production nowadays, lower thirds play an essential part in reaching the audiences. Combined with cool and advanced graphic design, it makes the ideas a lot easier to present and convey among viewers.
