I've downloaded the demo but have not had time to test as of yet.

I'm really not fond of letting the beta use our live database. Have most folks been using a copy of this database for the demo?

If so what is the proper way to do this?

Thanks in advance

I have been doing a lot of testing on the various builds. The early builds, I would not have used in a live situation. The more recent builds have been a lot more stable. After testing here at home I decided to really give it a workout and use the more recent builds live in church.

I have pointed them in Profiles to use the normal church database. The church audience now sees picture backgrounds once again, while the online audience see the song text as lower thirds.

Everything has been going fine except that we have trouble using PowerPoint over the NDI feed to the ALT output. 

We do have a workaround for that however by using the vMix Desktop Capture utility installed on the EW PC. That can then pick up any screen or even window into vMix or other NDI software.

To help them find a fix for this bug, I have given extensive feedback to EW about this issue.

So, yes, we have been using the beta version live and also using the regular database. Keep in mind though that this is STILL beta releases and you may have an issue or two.. The best you could do is give your feedback on any issue to EW so they can debug before final release

We are using it in the church, but some errors found:

- In music lyrics with NDI background, it is black between the slides of one slide and another. By swapping lines of the same song.

- Shadow and border do not work in alternate theme. Unless set within settings.

- The LOGO button should work as the CLEAR on the alternate output as it is used to send lyrics with no background.

Is there any word yet when this new update is going to be complete and released to the public for immediate use?

EW never announces when an update will go live. They just announce it WHEN it goes live. You'll just have to be patient like everyone else. EW moves at their own pace.

Hello Community,
For those of you testing the beta for the new release, or for anyone wanting to test the beta, here is a new beta build ready to be tested. We anticipate this being the final beta if all goes well. This will extend the expiration of the beta until Sept 30, 2021. To see all the changes coming up in this version of EW, please see original post above.
Here are the changes in this build:

-Fixed MIDI 'Goto Slide Start" bug

-Fixed issue with NDI showing black for PowerPoint on switchable Nvidia cards

-Fixed issue of PowerPoint showing background when advancing to another PowerPoint

-Fixed issue of EasyWorship deadlocking when closing

-Fixed issue of crashing when editing video or presentation properties

-Fixed issue with not being able to jump forward in audio files

-Fixed deadlocking issue in Presentation painter

-Fixed issue of PowerPoint not advancing after turning Black off in NDI

-Fixed multiple crashing bugs

Again, since this is a beta, you are at your own risk of running it in a live service, although it seems to be very stable at this point.
If you do run into any issues or bugs, please leave a comment here and we will see it and address it.

EasyWorship Beta

brilliant that could be really helpful, would love to display the output of a vmix feed to the monitor output in easy worship, or at least customise the monitor output.
