- I get this plug-in, especially I'm guessing for an Evangelical style worship setting.
- But for expanded usage (like Liturgy based styles) would benefit from having (need) more than the Bible. For example, a Liturgy source like Book of Common Prayer, or other "Service Bulletin" type content
And then a way to switch from Bible to other content ... or this may be overly complex and outside this plug-ins focus. which is fine.
I could see using this plug-in as a way to display Readings is a more aesthetic manner than my current method described below... but then I'm mixing content sources to display :(
But in case intrigued, some back ground on what I set up last year:
- We took our service bulletin (pre-pandemic was hard-copy printed for hand-outs to in-person attendees) and put it into PowerPoint. PPTx (in windowed slide show mode) works, though not ideal nor aesthetic, but simple/common with office staff and allows last minute corrections/changes. Further using PPTx in this way makes it easy to combine liturgical service order/content, Bible content, and Psalms & hymns (graphic image, with music notes, from Hymnal) for display alongside camera image
- I settled on using left ~1/3 of frame for static PPTx content and rest for camera.. through using OBS Scenes, I actually have a full landscape-oriented slide page view (using 1/3 of Base Canvas), then a "partial slide view" using about 1/2 of standard slide width [when full slide width not required], and then a no-slide (all camera) view with presets TXT boxes at bottom of screen for misc info, [not dynamic lower 1/3 type content] ...
My setup works... but is not aesthetic not all that dynamic.
I'm thinking something along the lines of this plugin, where I list out, in advance, the various content sources, in order, for a service and then walk thru that content. Getting the liturgy electronically and Importing shouldn't be a challenge. But graphic image 'pages' with Hymns with musical notation [ie same image/view as choir singing from]? And then creating a master service order for a given service to follow. In a liturgical tradition like mine, the liturgy is usually the same during a given season, with Readings, Psalms, and music changing each service. And then there is the couple of percent of random other content, that copy 'n pasting, or otherwise creating file and importing as required, would be fine.
Anyway, food for thought for an Expresso version ;^)
