Daniel Wong via email
Hi, Paul. Is me Daniel who the one chat with you in youtube comment have problem of foreground transparent problem. Above attachment is my prores4444 video. Could you help me try it? and Can you send me your any foreground video? Mind as well let me know where can download Propresenter 6 for free?

My answer: After looking at your video (and you trying mine) I suspect there’s either something going on with Windows, like the codec isn’t loading properly, or something with the Windows version of ProPresenter. Either is possible. You could continue to investigate, but I suspect it will be a lot to figure out.
