I keep getting questions over in the ProPresenter Users' Group about what computers can run ProPresenter. This post, which I'll try to keep updated is to answer that question:
Yes, but as of January 2021, all of them are limited to two displays: the built in one and one other (in the case of the Air and Pro) or an HDMI and thunderbolt 3 display. They CAN'T use eGPUs as of today, but they CAN use decklink cards, like the Decklink Duo2 with a thunderbolt 3 enclosure because they're not technically eGPUs.
As of this writing, NDI is only working in Rosetta.
Yes, but dedicated graphics cards are strongly recommended for when you have more than the three regular displays. Newer ones with more RAM and SSDs will work better than older ones. i7 & i9 Macs work better than i5s (all things being equal).
Dedicated graphics cards, SSDs, i7 or equivalent. Windows Pro is a better choice than Windows Home.
This is a combination of the video I did for my ChurchTechU members and the Q&A from the end of the one I did for a free training. The free training had an issue where I covered the screen with the output of Pro7 by mistake, so I thought it better to just use the other one.
Yesterday, I did a free live training about the new features available in ProPresenter 7.3. They include:
Watch the video above for more details on how to use any or all of these enhancements.
Recently, I did a one on one consulting call with Josh N. His church wanted to live-stream, send something different to the projectors, and send the same video from the live-stream to the nursery and lobby.
You might be thinking, "He'll need to buy a lot of equipment to do that."
He had most of what he needed (he just needed a couple SDI to HDMI converters, but other than that, he had it all).
So, what was the problem?
He didn't know what to hook up where.
I took some notes and then guided him through hooking it all up and the video on this page is what he said after we were done.
If you'd like to learn more about live video production, ProPresenter, and live-streaming, you can either book one on one time with me or click here to find out more about joining ChurchTechU, my online church tech training community.
I have a member of my extended family who MIGHT have COVID. She's not in great health, so this MIGHT be a very bad thing, but...
We'll get through it.
Remember what they say, "This too shall pass."
That's the good news of our situation AND the bad news. Whatever is happening will change.
Happily, as a person of faith, I know how it ends. Whether it gets worse before it gets better or it gets better, the future will eventually get better.
So, this is a quick message to say, hold on, no matter what your situation. Some day, we'll be able to tell everyone about how bad 2020 was, just as those in 1920 could tell how bad 1918 was.
