Good stuff, Brad… very creative use of Camtwist and ProPresenter.

03.08.10

it only played until about 3 minutes and then stopped.

Great episode! I'd love to see how people end up using Camtwist.

Great Job!!! Thanks for what your doing man!

I like this idea, as we have people asking us all the time what is playing. The next question is how to get it to pick up the iTunes playing from another computer as our sound tech plays the music and our computer people are dealing with the ProPresenter and projection screen, so it happens on two different computers. Any ideas?

I realize that ProPresenter3 does not have a props layer… but could I still use CamTwist to show what is playing even if it has to fill the entire screen?

Awesome, thanks! One more thing… I went to worshipvj's vimeo page… but I'm not sure how to download the loops he has posted. I'm sure it's just a lack of my familiarity with vimeo. I noticed someone else had posted the same question on his page.

Mine only played for 5 seconds and then stopped…

hey brad… have you got a mac pro under the desk or something… just looked weird not seeing and macbook or imac on your desk like your previous mac based software reviews…

Wow, commenting extravaganza. Vimeo is great and all, but it's full screen/HD support has always been a little questionable. Some users have no problems at all, while others seem to have a terrible time with it. Perhaps an HTML 5 Player, with flash fall back would be better suited?

Did you ever consider using Blip.tv to cross post, and include Vimeo as one of the destinations? Getting the best of both worlds, not to mention reduced bandwidth requirements here on the site.

Sorry to hijack the comments here but I am trying to find that video: The fabulous life of Jesus of Nazareth. I can remember which episode I saw it in. Does anyone?

I've made a few scripture reading elements for our church, check them out at http://vimeo.com/colinharman and let me know what you think! I love what you guys are doing.

Awesome Job, i stumbled on to this site after going to churchtechtalk.com and I have to say this is a great resource for church designers and media techs, I just used this video to add iTunes Art to our welcome slides and i see what your saying about text not showing up on the prop. this is actually a serious bug that RV is working on regarding props, basically any text used with a webcam prop or any message trying to run along side a webcam prop will show for about 2 seconds and disappear. I found a workaround for this, you can create the prop as a regular slide, and save it as a template, then add any graphics you want to the slide as a background. And since it is not a prop you can use any messages you want with it (such as a countdown, or Parent call, etc.) without a problem. It will have the same functionality, the only disadvantage is that you can't add it on the fly to any slide. hopefully RV addresses this problem soon. Thanks for the great tip! this is going to be awesome for our youth.
