Designed in GT designer for the vMix vision mixing software, this package contains two basic sports scoreboard graphics packages that I threw together originally for Ice Hockey, but it can be used for almost any sport of any level. Based on a graphics system I saw from a game in the United States, it’s has a flat colour scheme, with nothing shiny or fancy, though features synchronized animations.
It has two choices of “Score Bug” to use. Either a top left, square score bug with short team names, or a bottom of the screen wider score bug, which can handle longer team names. As a bonus, we’ve included a “go-to commercial” style lower third scoreboard, which can be used when throwing to a break, or coming back from one.
It has text sections that can be updated from any data source and includes clocks for the game & power plays, the current period, team names and any stats you are tracking. The team names should be kept to three capital letters, and the title for the stats box should be kept to five characters. (Example would be “Shots”, “Hits”, “Saves” etc.)
Power plays show not only the clock but also the team that it is affecting with a small highlight on the left side of the team name. This could be modified by the end-user to instead show timeouts or other timed game operations.
The team colours can now be adjusted from with vMix, through the title editor tool. They should be set so that the right colour (Under the score) should be two Hex codes lower than the main colour. (Example, if the main team colour is white, #FFFFFF, then set the other colour to be #FFFFDD) Adjust the team name colour to suit when the team colour is dark/light.
We hope you enjoy using this basic sports scoreboard graphics package and hope it brings your games to life. Whilst it was designed for Ice Hockey, with a few adjustments it could work for other low-scoring sports as well.
