ProPresenter 6 Tutorial: Kinetic typography lyrics without a click track

This set of hacks allows you to do kinetic typography of lyrics with the stage display actively showing text for the worship team. How? Watch to find out:

Make your lyric video in AfterEffects or Motion and export with no background as a ProRes 4444 video (other formats will not work).

Now, make sure each line is its own movie. In the example above, the line “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” is a separate movie from “A bulwark never failing”. Add each of these to a separate slide on the slide layer (not as a background or as a foreground video).

Change the label for each to what the text actually says in the video so that even if the screen shot doesn’t tell you, you’ll know. Also add slide notes for the first slide with the lyrics.

Now, create slides with regular text that go between each slide with the lyrics of the next video and slide notes for the video after that.

Create a stage display layout that puts the next slide lyrics in the normal current slide position and the next slide notes in the normal next slide position.

Add a cue to change to this slide layout at the start of the song. Now, just click every other video as the music warrants it.

That’s probably not clear, so watch the video to see just how it’s done.
