The Video/Image Bin is the location for managing your media within ProPresenter.
To access the Video/Image Bin, click on the Video/Image icon in the toolbar, use the keyboard shortcut (Control-V for Mac, Control-Shift-V for PC), or select it from the View menu. Once the bin is open, you will find it below the slide area. The first time you open this, it will be empty, but once you have started adding content it will begin to look like the image above.
The Video/Image Bin is made up of two parts: the left column contains all of your playlists, folders, and tags; the right column contains all of your media cues.
You can add media to the Video/Image Bin from your hard drive by dragging the files into ProPresenter or by clicking on the plus button below the thumbnail section.
Backgrounds can also be added to directly to each slide in a presentation. This is particularly useful for establishing your chosen backgrounds ahead of time.
To assign a still or motion background to a slide, simply drag and drop a background of your choice from the Video/Image Bin, or from Finder (Mac) and File Explorer (PC) to an individual slide.
When assigning a background to a song, it’s best practice to place a background on the first slide. Once a background is established on the first slide, it will continue to show behind each lyric slide you click until it is changed. Therefore, you do not need to place a background on every slide of the presentation–only the first.
If you would like to use more than one background for a presentation, simply drag and drop a new background onto the slides where you’d like to see the change. Some churches choose to use multiple backgrounds per song, such as for the chorus, to emphasize certain moments.
To get started, use the button below to down your 99 FREE still worship backgrounds. When you’re ready to go to the next level, check out CMG’s large collection of motion backgrounds.
While BoxCast doesn't have a direct integration with ProPresenter, the program's ability to stream via RTMP in versions 7.1 and up makes it possible to send its feed directly to BoxCast. Also, you can output a feed from the computer running ProPresenter to a BoxCaster or BoxCaster Pro.
Note: We've also included a section to assist in connecting ProPresenter to Blackmagic Design ATEM units.
