ProPresenter Overview

What is ProPresenter?

ProPresenter is a live presentation and worship application designed to help churches and schools manage and display lyrics and other media in real time, in order to improve engagement with audiences. It allows users to control and handle scripture presentations from a centralized screen and present content using one or more output methods.

Key features of ProPresenter include a media library, playlist management, projection tools, a scripture database, worship panning, layout management, record and playback ability and chord chart management. It comes with a multi-layered architecture, which enables user to control and configure backgrounds, video layers, props, masks and slides independently. Churches can use the import functionality to fetch and play videos from other platforms while adjusting the videos effect, color, volume, or brightness, and cropping or zooming from within the solution.

ProPresenter comes with customizable templates and a text reflow editor, which lets users create and predefine templates, edit slides, and add elements such as shapes, graphics, text, live video inputs, videos, and HTML5 web pages to presentations. Users can also curate, display and moderate social media feeds based on multiple keyword searches.

Perfect for Church environment, and easy to train new users on

As a church, we need to enable the congregation to follow along with the songs we sing and the sermon that is preached. This allows us to display what we need, in a way that is both engaging AND distraction-free. The software is basic enough that my new volunteers can jump right in, but with enough advanced features that I can do more complicated slides. It also has many more features that we can use as we grow and need them without switching platforms.

I cannot recommend ProPresenter enough to anybody who needs to present content. Over my years of working with the software, any bugs I've encountered have been patched out in future updates so I have no hesitation to recommend everyone use ProPresenter.

Good, but not as good as it could be.

We use ProPresenter 6 weekly to sequence our worship lyrics and other service visuals except for the weekly teaching portions. Our teachers prefer Proclaim due to its integration with Logos bible software. We also use Proclaim to record our teachings - audio with synced visuals - for uploading to our website. For general worship visuals I prefer ProPresenter 6 by far. While our two graphic-op volunteers are fairly new to worship graphics software, I have been creating presentations using computer graphics software professionally since 1983.

ProPresenter for Church A/C

We have had a great experience and love the way we can craft both our worship song slides as well as the sermon slides and anything else we want to do. It effortlessly handles any embedded video or audio and is just a workhorse program for all our your visual applications and needs.

It also has many more features that we can use as we grow and need them without switching platforms.

Pros

Most importantly: it is a stable product that outputs w/o any issue. Next is that it is easy to train new volunteers on the basic operations of the software. Both of these are important to us.

Cons

I haven't yet got the ability to sync files to work smoothly using Google Drive; if I can ever get it to the point where I can trust it, it will allow me to remotely (from home) create and edit files when I have a few minutes to spare.

I cannot recommend ProPresenter enough to anybody who needs to present content. Over my years of working with the software, any bugs I've encountered have been patched out in future updates so I have no hesitation to recommend everyone use ProPresenter.

Pros

I have yet to throw a task at ProPresenter that it couldn't handle. From its ease of use when editing slides, to the ability to work seamlessly with any number of video outputs, ProPresenter is simply the best presentation software you can find. I especially appreciate the "arrangments" feature which greatly increases productivity.

Cons

My only real complaint about ProPresenter is the fact they removed support for social media integrations. In the previous version, you could include realtime images and text from Twitter and Facebook but they have since removed the feature.

Presentation Software that Will Expand Your Horizons

Used Weekly for 1-5 months
Reviewed on 2021/01/03
Review Source: Capterra

Pros

Perhaps the most useful feature that ProPresenter offers is the ability to present different looks to multiple screens. For instance, our current set-up enables us to send front-of-house lyrics to two screens, lyrics via a confidence monitor stationed for our music team to see, and another feed via NDI to our livestream. This tool is of immense use, especially given that each screen can have a customized look.
Additionally, ProPresenter offers traditional features from presentation software, and has the ability to integrate with files from other presentation software.

Cons

ProPresenter has an extremely high learning curve. We have implemented this software with a team primarily made up of volunteers, and it is a struggle at times for them to troubleshoot issues that arise beyond basic problems. The features that are packed into the software can create confusion for users that have not spent a lot of time working with the software. As such, it is typically necessary to have minimally one user present that knows the software in-depth to be of assistance when errors arise.

For general worship visuals I prefer ProPresenter 6 by far. While our two graphic-op volunteers are fairly new to worship graphics software, I have been creating presentations using computer graphics software professionally since 1983.

Pros

ProPresenter 6 is good at sequencing images, allowing videos to be used as backgrounds, and the database of user created material works well. The weekly task of creating the worship flow for our services is easy and works relatively well. I like that you can click on graphics and text images to make visuals on the fly. We have used ProPresenter with PowerPoint, Keynote and Proclaim software concurrently and switch between them with almost no difficulties.

Cons

In our particular setup - iMac with a Kramer VGA video splitter, in 4:3 - 1024x768 res. - ProPresenter 6 does not correctly initialize the screen buffers causing us to quit and restart the program almost every time we use it. We don't have this problem with PowerPoint, Keynote or Proclaim. Also, for the price, the image (slide) editing functions are clunky - usable, but not good. Apple's Keynote software (free with every Mac) is a great model for easily creating high quality visuals.

Pros

We made the switch to ProPresenter to have more options in our creativity, livestreaming, and general overall graphic and visual content. The options it presents the user with are limitless and great for expanding your creativity many different ways.

Cons

It would be good if there were more 'on the fly" controls to instantly duplicate slides and do more things with special characters/text.
