CTA Widget Tutorial

A CTA, or "call to action" widget is to direct your viewers attention to an event or important message that is central to your stream at that point in time.

This call to action can be "Follow me on Twitch", "Subscribe to my YouTube" "Join my Discord" - it calls your viewers or subs to complete an action that is desired by you.

In the following paragraphs below, we will show how to get yours set-up for your stream or content. Following on from this will be a guide on how to add extra customisation to your StreamElements widgets in Premier Pro.

Step 1: Add a copy of the CTA Widget to your Streamelements account.

Click on the share link provided to create a copy of the widget onto your account.

Step 2: Edit the CTA Overlay.

Click edit on the newly created overlay.

Step 3: Open Widget Settings

In the editor, look at the left side and click on "Settings".

Step 4: Set Basic Widget Options

Go to Widget Settings: Click on "Widget Settings" in the menu.

Adjust Timings:

Single CTA Duration: Set how long each message shows (e.g., 10 seconds).

Delay Between CTAs: Set how long to wait between messages (e.g., 2 seconds).

Start Delay: Set how long to wait before the first message shows, this acts like a delay between full loop.

Step 5: Style Your Widget

Change Appearance:

Background Color: Set the background color (e.g., white).

Rounded Corners: Make the edges rounded if you want.

Step 6: Add Social Media CTAs

Add CTAs for Different Platforms: Click on the platform names like Twitch, YouTube, or Instagram to add messages for each one.

Customize Each CTA:

For Twitch: Turn on Twitch, upload your profile picture, pick a color, and write your message and handle.

Do the Same for Other Platforms: Repeat the process for YouTube, Instagram, and other platforms you want to add. Each platform has a hard-coded icon attached to it. If you want one without, we’ve provided a custom CTA option in the list.

Step 7: Finish and Save

Customisation in Premiere pro

Editing .mogrt files

Step 1: Download .mgrt Files

Start by downloading your files from the GETREKT Elements store. Extract the Zip file to a convenient location as you’ll need to import the .mogrt file shortly!

Launch Adobe Premiere Pro on your computer. Make sure you have the latest version installed for compatibility with .mgrt files.

Go to the "Window" menu and select "Essential Graphics" to open the Essential Graphics panel.

Step 5: Import .mogrt Files

Navigate to the location where you saved your .mogrt files and select the ones you want to import.

Step 6: Drag .mgrt Files to Timeline

With the .mgrt file selected on the timeline, switch back to the Essential Graphics panel.

Here, you'll find various parameters and controls to customize the appearance and behavior of the .mgrt file.

Depending on the complexity of the .mgrt file, you may be able to adjust text, colors, animations, and other properties directly from this panel.

Step 8: Preview and Adjust

Play through your timeline to preview how the .mgrt file

interacts with your video footage. Make any necessary adjustments to the customization options in the Essential Graphics panel to fine-tune the appearance and timing of the .mgrt file.

Step 9: Export or Continue Editing:

Once you're satisfied with the customization of the .mgrt file, you can proceed to export your project as usual or continue editing additional elements.

Step 10: Save Your Project:

Don't forget to save your project to preserve all the changes you've made.
