I tried to install the bible .dmg file and I keep getting the same error even after following your directions for my MAC

As I think most of you know, I’m in the process of developing an Online Piano Course that I hope to release later this year! It’s an ambitious goal, but I’m eager to make it happen!

In my head, I had the idea of a “traditional video shoot” to record this thing. But, as I’m learning more and more about online biz/media/tools, I think there may some cheaper/simpler ways for me to maybe even do some of this myself??

So, I’m wondering if you have any recommendations for apps, equipment, etc. that I could use to even try out and practice with and maybe even use for at least some of the finished product? Maybe I’m crazy for thinking this…or maybe this will just be something I use to spark ideas/creativity and practice before recording the real deal…or maybe I will just use it for creating some of my free online stuff.

FYI, I’m a PC girl so Apple stuff is out at this point. I do have an iPhone and an android tablet. 😉

Thanks so much for any input you can give me!
Becky 🙂

I don’t have Final Cut installed. I need an Apple ProRes 422 alternative. Though we do have CS6 Premiere. Any advice?

I have been trying to teach myself about the masking feature in Pro Presenter 6 for use in our contemporary service. We have a projector for each of the screens shown and what I am trying to do is project an environmental type background around the screens while my camera shot /sermon slides are on the screens. I’m pretty sure we will need a fourth projector dedicated to the environmental background, but my question is do I need a special module or special software to do that? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

In His service
