ProPresenter 5 Tutorials: How to do ProPresenter Digital Signage

First, you can use certain layers for things that you might not have considered. The mask layer, for example, doesn’t have to be just boxes drawn in ProPresenter. It can be images, including PNG and Gif files that can have transparency. So, the first thing I did was create a frame file in Photoshop that included cut outs for each element and a place for a logo.

Immediately under that layer is the props layer. Since you can use multiple props, I’d include each element as a separate prop, so that you can turn each on and off individually.

Finally, create a slide loop like you would for before service, but here’s a pro tip. Add two copies (or more) of each image. Put two images per slide, but stagger when they’re added, so have “image 1” on the same slide as “image a” and then put in another slide with “image 1” and “image b”. Now add a new slide with “image 2” and “image b”. Make sure each image is in exactly the same location and size for each of the slides that it’s in.

By doing so, it will look like each image changes individually from the slide before it.
