Hi Paul, I have a question

It was regarding video cards.

I’ve bought a gtx 960, that wouldn’t be overkill?

Our set up at church including our main pc, two monitors, two projectors and two projector screens. We use Proclaim, and most Adobe products and play videos.

Paul, are aware of a way to cross-fade between foreground videos in Pro5?

My answer: Here’s what I’ve been able to come up with. Put both videos in a document (like a song, but without lyrics, unless you need them for some reason). Now, make sure you set the transition under the video image bin to “cross dissolve”. Set the time a little longer than you might normally use. And see if that doesn’t do it when you click from one to the other.

Hi Paul, your videos have helped me figure out answers to my questions in the past and I am very grateful for your help.

I feel stupid because I have run into this problem several months before and forgot what the tech over the phone told me to do to fix it. I have a big concert at our church tomorrow and I can’t get the stage display to change. It just shows my desktop image. I’ve messed around with the monitor display settings on the computer but nothing seems to change. Also, the mouse pointer disappears on my main display and I’m freaking out. The tech center is closed (I’m on the west coast). I’m using PP5 on windows.

I know there is an easy fix I just can’t remember what it is. Could you help?
