ProPresenter 5 Difficulty Level: Beginner
This Tutorial Explains the Following ProPresenter Features in This Order:
- Slide Labeling and Grouping
- Creating a New Arrangement
- Slide Re-Ordering
- Making Different Arrangements of the Same Song
- Adding Different Arrangements to the Same Playlist
The arrangements feature in ProPresenter allows you to create different versions of the same song for say a youth service or short/long version of a song. The feature comes in very handy because not every church uses the same arrangement and lyrics from the internet are not always in the order that you would want. This feature makes it extremely simple to re-order your songs and customize them the way your band plays them. This is one of my favorite features in ProPresenter just because of how useful it is.

As ProPresenter 5 nears release date there are features new to ProPresenter 5 slowly making a splash in the worship media community. I’m very excited about this new release. We use it our Church on an iMac i7 and works flawlessly. How to get a free upgrade.
Here are some of the new features:
1. Transitions: New slide and text animation. These are not simple animations. The new animations in ProPresenter 5 are like ones you would custom make in After Effects. I’ve seen a short example of how it works on a song and it really did add emotion to the song!
2. Backgrounds Tool: They started a backgrounds tool in ProPresenter 4. Currently the tool allows you to sync up multiple motion loops to match properties like speed and colors. Now in ProPresenter 5 you can add color filters (Sepia as an example) and blur effects.
3. Planning: Tight integration with a well known tool “Planning Center Online”. You can sync up worship schedules and presentation automatically through the online service.
4. Reporting: ProPresenter 5 offers SongSelect CCLI reporting of all songs played and the CCLI number associated. This allows you to keep track of a presentation created which is mandatory from CCLI.
There is plenty more to be released on features before the release date of the software. So stay tuned.
Right now you can get a free upgrade to ProPresenter 5 when released when you purchase ProPresenter 4 today. Also Worship Media Pro includes free motion loops and media with your purchase. You can get more information here. Buy ProPresenter 5
There is some very recent news on the new EasyWorship software. Not sure if it will be named EasyWorship 2011 because SoftTouch Inc is doing a survey to find another name. I like EasyWorship 2 personally. The new features are not clear yet but it will be a multi platform product. This will work on both Apple Mac OS X and Windows systems. What a great idea given most larger Churches have several ministries and some ministries might use Windows while the main sanctuary would use Apple Macs.
Here is the most recent information from SoftTouch Inc.
1) A new EasyWorship purchase – $399.00
2) An upgrade from version 2007 or earlier – $149.00
3) An upgrade from version 2009 – $49.00
4) An upgrade from a competitive product – $249.00
When you purchase the new EasyWorship (when released) you will get a site license automatically. This means you can use the Mac OS X and Windows version on all your PCs/Macs in the Church. WOW! This is the only software developer that offers this great deal!

Are you looking for a Mac OS X based worship presentation software? If so here is the only worship software I would recommend. ProPresenter (Currently ProPresenter 3) is a powerful presentation software built for the worship community who will not part with their prized Macs.
Since it is built on a very reliable platform the software is flawless in operation and plays stunning HD mini-movies and motion loop backgrounds.
The interface is like other presentation software with a smooth flow of scheduling, queuing and ‘go live’.
If you want to get more details of the features and take advantage of bundled backgrounds check out Worship Media Pro’s website for a ProPresenter bundle here.
