Default Right-to-Left Text Ticker

Hi,

I am trying to display Farsi (similar toArabic) text on a ticker. However, because it is right to left it isnt displaying properly on the screen, alphabets are missing.

I am using R-Tic to read from a .txt file and display the text one screen.

Can you help me achieve this please? We tried using the same font aswell.

Regards,
A

Hello Alex,

To create a ticker story in Arabic or Farsi it is important to set the font in RTIC the same as inside the channel pack.

In the example below we will use 'Arial Unicode MS' as font used for Arabic text.
You can chose any font you like based on your needs. Keep in mind to have them all the same (RTIC and channelpack).

Step 1.
Install the latest RTIC version

Step 2. (UPDATED, mode should be zero!)
Update the file 'rtic.ini' with the following lines:
unicode_mode=0
font_name=Arial Unicode MS


The file can be found in its installation directory.
By default is this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Grass Valley\rtic

Step 3.
Add the font to your system operator font directory if it is not already there.
For windows is this: c:/windows/font directory

Step 4.
Include the font inside the channel pack
(Project Asset, Add font)


Step 5.
Use the same font for the ticker
(Ticker Object, font file)


Step 6.
Set the speed to a negative value to let it scroll from left to right.


That should do the trick.

Regards,
Arjen.

Default I have tried that method already

Hi Arjen,

I have tried that already. I used the latest version of RTic. The text appears on the screen however the characters are flipped aroundand the text isnt right-to-left.

I have attached the screen shot of how it should appear and how it appears currently on the screen.

http://forum.grassvalley.com/forum/a...1&d=1414589972

Is there a way to change the direction of the text? Using the negative scroll, the text can scroll the other way but it is still not right-to-left.

Thanks in advance.

Default unicode_mode should be set to ZERO

Hi Alex,

The unicode_mode should be set to ZERO.

So, step 2 should be like this:
unicode_mode=0

Regards,
Arjen !
