Looping and go to next timers, Printing larger colored slides, & keying lower thirds

Here are the latest questions:

Brian Willard on YouTube
I’m looking to do something, and not sure if it is possible in Pro Presenter. What I need to do is have a video play (1) then auto-advance to the next video (2) which should loop on itself until manually advanced to the next (3rd) video, then auto-advance to the next video (4th – copy of 2nd), then loop on itself until manually advance to the next (5th)…. until last video which should stop at the end.

Is that possible?

Hi Paul,

I’m hoping you can help me! I would like to find a way (if possible) to export the text and retain the color attributes I have placed on the text within the slides. I’ve attached a screen shot to show you how it is exporting the text when I go to File>export as plain text.

I know there is an option to print the slides themselves, but the font isn’t large enough even when I magnify the slides before printing.

Thanks for your time!

Hi Paul. My name is Devin and I work for a church in Ga. I came across some of your videos online and thought maybe you could help me with something that I can’t seem to figure out. I am trying to get text to overlap live video. For example: As our pastor is on the screen I would like to be able to put his verses up in a banner across the bottom of the screen. We use an IMac with ProPresenter 5. 2 Canon HD video cameras and a Roland V-40HD video switcher. These go to a Christie HD projector and a few tvs throughtout the church. Any suggestions how to make this happen. I know it has to be something fairly simple but I just can’t figure it out. I can ust the “T bar” on the switcher to do a half and half type deal but not quite what I’m looking for. Thanks in advance for any advice you may have!
Devin
