When looking at the competitors, i think one area where easy worship is severely lacking is in its inability to have multiple outputs instead of the fixed audience view, control view, and stage view. Especially with COVID and the restrictions that are making online services so popular, its difficult for us to properly serve the members of our church who are participating in our in person services and those who prefer the online experience. When can we expect EW to enable us to setup multiple outputs that we can use for live streaming, lower thirds, etc. ?
It is my understand based on a post their support people made on the EW Facebook Group that they are working on that. No definite time frame has been announced or if would be added to EW7 or be part of EW8 (or whatever the next release will be called). EW tends to be tight lipped about upcoming additions until they are pretty much ready to be released.
I do think that the changes in the 7.2.x.x builds to rely more on the GPU than previous releases and to enable EW to use additional ram compared to the 7.1.x.x builds are some of the per-requisites towards that goal, but I have no confirmation of that.
I ask this question on a 4th output and Dan Willard said that it was in the pipeline. We have purchased the new ATEM Mini Pro which has streaming built in and just needs an input from EasyWorship but with just the lower third for text of songs etc. Using EW as it is now, we will have to put a box containing the text on the video which the ATEM can do.
Any news on the much needed fourth output so we can put song words as lower thirds on the live stream but pretty picture backgrounds on the screen for those allowed back in the church?
How soon will we have this feature avaiable? It sure would be a welcome new feature.
EW normally doesn't announce when something will be available until it or a Beta/Preview/Test version is released. I haven't heard of anything yet so I doubt they are going to release it any time soon.
