Sunday was the second weekend of ProPresenter. Again, it worked flawlessly and our second volunteer picked it right up. He was called away to help his brother between the 5 and 7 services so I stepped in to man the con. It occurred to me that my MacBook Pro came with a remote, so I pulled it out to see if it would control ProPresenter. Sure enough, it works great!
So instead of being tied to the keyboard, I was able to stand back fire the slides and sing along. The left/right buttons on the remote advance and go back, and up/down moves through the playlist. I'm not sure if this is officially supported or not, but it worked like a charm. I felt much more in control of the process, and I was able to engage in the worship.
I was also able to fire cues from across the tech booth while manning our video switcher. A truly multi-tasking moment! At any rate, it's one more thing I appreciate about it.
I also saw that Renewed Vision just released 3.3.1 which includes a few bug fixes for the previously released 3.3 (a week ago), which again qualifies Pro as the most actively developed software ever. Having used it for a few weeks, I have a few questions and suggestions… I'll be calling tomorrow!
