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.
