The platform allows operators to import videos, add custom color effects, manage brightness and crop videos to change the pre-produced content. ProPresenter lets administrators blend multiple screens to create a wide image, share videos across serial digital interfaces and use customizable built-in themes to unify content. Additionally, it provides access to translations of The Bible in multiple languages and helps communicate information to people on the stag...

Powerful resource for multimedia worship

We were able to expedite the service preparation process incredibly with the media integration available through ProPresenter.

Pros

I love the integration of various media types and source material platforms. The SongSelect integration is by far the most useful feature for a church that relies on SongSelect for lyrics etc. Also, the multi-user features coupled with cloud sync make team collaboration so much more efficient.

Cons

The biggest issue we had was with releases/support for PC lagging so far behind Mac. Not investing in Mac hardware puts the church at a disadvantage with this software. I don't expect that to change, and it may not need to for the company to be successful, but it makes you ask if it's really better to support PC use if the support is inferior. Additionally, having cloud sync as an 'extra' rather than built into the payment model seems a bit backwards - but for a software that is bought for a larger one-time fee rather than monthly/annual subscription, it makes sense as bandwidth is not free for anyone.

Reasons for Choosing ProPresenter

We had a volunteer with previous ProPresenter experience who vouched for its ease of use.

Reasons for Switching to ProPresenter

Our previous software had a 'clunky' interface and simple repetitive tasks took to long to perform.

ProPresenter is the most versatile presentation software on the market

I cannot recommend ProPresenter enough to anybody who needs to present content. Over my years of working with the software, any bugs I've encountered have been patched out in future updates so I have no hesitation to recommend everyone use ProPresenter.

Pros

I have yet to throw a task at ProPresenter that it couldn't handle. From its ease of use when editing slides, to the ability to work seamlessly with any number of video outputs, ProPresenter is simply the best presentation software you can find. I especially appreciate the "arrangments" feature which greatly increases productivity.

Cons

My only real complaint about ProPresenter is the fact they removed support for social media integrations. In the previous version, you could include realtime images and text from Twitter and Facebook but they have since removed the feature.

Reasons for Switching to ProPresenter

Didn't have the functionality I was looking for.

ProPresenter Is a Good Presentation System

Overall the software works well, but I began noticing performance problems with ProPresenter on my Mac when using more than 4 outputs.

Pros

The customization features to create different screens using the same information.

Cons

I made a change to Macs in my system configuration based on the constant recommendations from users that ProPresenter works better on Macs. Then Renewed Vision released a complete re-write of the ProPresenter software. The new version seemed to work better on Windows.

Reasons for Choosing ProPresenter

Ease of use, and features.

Reasons for Switching to ProPresenter

ProPresenter is a professional product made specifically for House of Worship presentation systems.

Great Software With Many Glitches for PC Version

Our Church has been using ProPresenter since 2014 and overall it's been the best solution that meets most of our needs. However, it's not perfect and has given us quite a few headaches over the years. Hopefully in the future ProPresenter will be given it's own PC development department that will focus on Industry Standards that are common in the PC environment instead of trying to Port over from Mac.

Pros

ProPresenter is pretty great overall. It has so many abilities to allow our church to create custom presentations on the fly as will as prepare in advance. Love how easy it is to import songs, backgrounds, and bible references.

Cons

The PC version feels like a cheap port from the Mac version. It has many glitches when trying to export playlists. It also doesn't allow me to duplicate playlists easily. If I wanted to create a duplicate playlist to use as a template for another service, I have to export it then re-import it instead of just copy and paste like most standard PC software allows. When I do export a playlist, sometimes it never exports and if it does then items are missing or removed from the both the exported playlist and the original playlist.

Reasons for Choosing ProPresenter

Mainly the Stage Display feature that the others did not have at the time of purchase

Reasons for Switching to ProPresenter

ProPresenter gave us the ability to use stage display for our band which was the main reason for the switch at the time.

significant updates in ProPresenter 7

ProPresenter has been a consistent and reliable presentation software, with ProPresenter 7 introducing the ability to livestream from within the program and send NDI signals to the network. We use it every week for our worship gatherings with great success.

Pros

I love how ProPresenter leads the way in presentation software for houses of worship. It integrates with Planning Center and SongSelect, and volunteers can be trained without much difficulty.

Cons

There are a LOT of features for new users to get their heads around. Sometimes integrated programs need multiple logins to maintain connection. It uses a lot of system resources when running.

Reasons for Choosing ProPresenter

ProPresenter lead the way in innovation, and had NDI signal as an option for output. It also has integration (that many other programs also have) with our other worship software.

Reasons for Switching to ProPresenter

ProPresenter is the industry standard and works cross-platform, unlike MediaShout.
